Now what on earth? .. lol no I have not lost it friends. Your calendar says we are coming to the close of 2008 .. (only a few months to go) But the year ends for us at the end of the month (those that follow the lunar cycle and Hebrew calendar)
We are looking at the year 5770 so I did some quick math... now before some get all hissy, understand I do not do this to predict, but to try to understand the year ahead.
At first I went for the typical male approach and added my numbers (5+7+7+0 = 19 ) now we use a base 12 (our school) so 19 is added again .. (9+1=10) 10 is the number of law and judgment! Eeek I thought! but then I happen to note that the year ends in 70 .. so it should not have been added.. so I looked at the 70 .. guess what it is the number assigned to committees and Governments.
Indeed many nations are either going to the polls or are in turmoil. We have seen an increase in unrest, and storms, and disasters already and we are steaming towards a new year!
To the saints .. I say fear not for the Lord our God is with us. But we should pray for the lost of the world. We have seen an increase both in numbers, and ferocity of storms. Yet our nation still remains stubbornly entrenched in secularism. Persecution of believers is rekindling .. mostly due to an increase of sympathy, loyalty and prayers for Israel. Satan does not like this at all.. he will make sure our lives are miserable as he knows his time is at an end.
How much longer will this loyalty remain? Time will tell. I appreciate those of you that still pray for the "Peace of Jerusalem".
But look for heat to be turned up as they kindle the fire. What will you say if you are thrown in? Remember Shad, Mesh, and Ab! The Lord our God will deliver.
Remain ever watchful, do not fear, continue in prayer. .. and oh ya .. one more thing watch for the "Exit" sign !
