W.A.P - “Watch and Pray”
“You need to follow the rules”
Read and Meditate:
Esther 3:1-5, 8 - A small minority not following the rules
Daniel 3:10-12 - A Small minority not following the rules
Daniel 6:10-13 - A small minority not following the rules
Revelation 14:12 - A small minority have not followed the rules
Have you ever had some say to you, “look at that cloud, it looks like a ......” And for a while you just don’t see it. But as you keep looking at the cloud, somehow, it begins to take shape and then...you can see it! And once you’ve seen it, you can’t ‘un-see’ it. Even if you look away at something else, everytime your eyes see that particular cloud, you see that thing.
Well, Gods Word has said:
Matthew 24:32-33 - Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, *when ye shall see all these things,* know that it is near, even at the doors.
Can you see it? Keep looking....Once you see it you’ll not be able to un-see it!
What you are looking for are the signs of the Second Coming, because once you see them you’ll *know* that it (The Second Coming) is near.
How do you see what is unfolding in an unseen world?
I entreat you who have put far off the appearing of our Lord, commence now the work of *redeeming* the time. *Study the word of God.* Let all at this meeting make a covenant with God to *put away light and trifling conversation and frivolous, unimportant reading, and, for the coming year, diligently and prayerfully study the Bible,* that you may be able to give to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is within you, with meekness and fear. 5T 18.4
If we have eyes to see and ears to hear, we can know how close the glorious future is that has been promised but also how close we are to the start of the last, rockiest part of the road that leads us there.
Reread the first 4 scriptures and then listen very carefully to Mr Hancock:
What did you hear, what did you see?
Did you see a 3 fold union uniting to legislate “stringent enforcement” in order to bring to view “a minority” who were “not following the rules” for the “common good.”
My friends, metaphorically, the animals are entering the ark because a flood is coming.
But but but, have no fear! Why...
Read and meditate:
Genesis 7:16 - when the flood came, God had “shut him (Noah and his family) in”
Genesis 19:10 - The angelic men pulled Lot in and “shut the door”
Let us strive to be “shut in” and “locked down” with Christ as this ship goes sailing home.
