As the time changes , as the seasons move on and the years pass…people will say these are that these are the last days and JESUS will return soon. But people have been saying this since Jesus left the first time centuries ago. Those of us who seek after JESUS and want to be with Him for all of eternity , want to be with Him and to see GOD face to face and be in eternal peace forever.
The return of our savior…..those of us who have accepted JESUS as our savior and the key to getting into heaven await joyfully for Him. These are terrible times yes, but even JESUS does not know when he will return to take the righteous home with Him.
Reading the Bible gives me peace and comfort. And anyone who loves GOD knows what this kind of comfort is truly. There are some who will pretend to, but when you have the love of GOD in you know who is linked into what you feel.
When those of you who are reading this who seek to witness to encourage others to follow the Lord…do so lovingly., I do pray you will speak JEsus to be her savior.
In reading 2 Timothy chapter 3
2 Timothy 3 New International Version (NIV)
3 But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2 People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4 treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people.
6 They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over gullible women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7 always learning but never able to come to a knowledge of the truth. 8 Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these teachers oppose the truth. They are men of depraved minds, who, as far as the faith is concerned, are rejected. 9 But they will not get very far because, as in the case of those men, their folly will be clear to everyone.
A Final Charge to Timothy
10 You, however, know all about my teaching, my way of life, my purpose, faith, patience, love, endurance, 11 persecutions, sufferings—what kinds of things happened to me in Antioch, Iconium and Lystra, the persecutions I endured. Yet the Lord rescued me from all of them. 12 In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted, 13 while evildoers and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have become convinced of, because you know those from whom you learned it, 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, 17 so that the servant of God[a] may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.
There is hope for all mankind who WANT it. GOD is not going to force us to love HIM. Just as you would not force anyone to love you, you know all well in good it would not be sincere and you would be lying to yourself if you think you were able to do so.
Trust in GOD, read His word, study the words and how He tells us the ways of a true happy and righteous life that will give you total peace with Him.
I have to impress upon you all who do read my writings to you , every person I meet and see I wonder if I will meet up with them in heaven when GOD says it is time. I do not want anyone to end up where the evil one will sent for all of eternity long. If you think you have sinned and GOD will not forgive you, you need to turn to GOD, learn to know who JESUS is and why GOD set Him to earth!
We all have sinned and have fallen short of the glory of GOD. ALL of us….not one was or is like JESUS. We all will be judged by what we do. So to find this peace , you will not have with your friends that love the world and the ways of the world that do NOT love GOD and the people who do.
Once you leave that circle of friends , it will be hard because they will tempt you to return to their circle and way of life you were in. See they are still under the cloak of confusion of the world as it states in 2nd Timothy 3:1-5 what I copied for you above in this post.
Yes these days are getting closer to the time of JESUS’s return. Get ready for Him. Be apart of the JESUS family and have unconditional love and peace for all eternity with Him in the house of GOD. GOD is good, and ALL of the time GOD is good! Praise GOD! 🙂
Peace be with you all, and may GOD bless and guide you in all your ways! 🙂

We don’t know the hour, but the Bible gives us a lot of hints of the season. As Jesus said, the sailor can tell the weather for sailing from the sky, but we cannot figure out when He will be returning. I feel as though you are like me, you feel the weather changing, things are colliding even more and faster and those things Peter, Jesus, God have said are beginning to crystallize even faster directly in front of us. In Revelation, there is talks of horns, yet I believe there won’t be the sound of horns, but it will be the sound of a warning that we recognize as symbolic to the beginning of the end. As Christians, I hope we will unite as this front comes upon us. God Bless, great writing!!
Yes , we do not know the time for when our LORD will return. We who will mention these things are looked upon as having ten heads or something like that. But keep on preaching the word. Tell all you know about repentance. I would hate the thought of anyone going to hell. Have a blessed day. Keep the faith and stay in the TRIBE OF JESUS!
