We find ourselves living in a time when the things of this world are pressing in to such a degree that our spiritual sensitivity is threatened. The burdens and cares of this world have become so heavy and overwhelming that many find themselves being pulled from the Lord’s words and ways.
As the darkness grows deeper, many are being lulled into a slumber. But today hear the trumpet sounding…wake up, wake up, and rise up! Do not fear the darkness, but perceive the signs and know the time! May you be known by His light and love as you rise and shine.
I Thessalonians 5:
5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.
6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.
7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.
8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.
9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,
10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.
11 Wherefore comfort yourselves together, and edify one another, even as also ye do.
