Dirty Shoes

On the afternoon of May 12, 2020, the Lord gave me a dream.

I am walking down a street and approach a corner. In the corner lot to my right is a brick church. I begin walking toward it. Someone stopped me in the parking lot and asked, “Aren’t you going to change your shoes first?” I looked down at my feet and saw I was wearing a pair of white canvas tennis shoes. They were worn and scuffed. In my mind I pictured a pair of white patent leather dress shoes at home in my closet. (Note: I don’t actually own such shoes, just in the dream) I replied, “These are my shoes which I wear every day to serve my family, which is my service to the Lord. The Lord prefers these over fancy shoes I keep hidden in my closet.” 

This dream could be interpreted a few different ways, but I am going to stick with what was impressed upon me during the dream and immediately following. Upon waking, as I was thinking about the dream and still actually waking up, a message was impressed upon my mind which said something like “this is similar to the parable of the talents”. Meaning, the dream has a similar message as the parable where the servant who buried his talents, was considered lazy and all that was entrusted to him was taken away because he did nothing with it.

Also, the message laid upon my spirit was, God is much more interested in your dirty shoes which reflect your service, than He is with the fancy shoes you reserve to make a good impression.

But shouldn’t we bring our best when we go into His house? YES!

However, perhaps, in God’s eyes, our BEST is the pair of dirty shoes that show our service to Him. Dirty shoes means you are busy working for the Lord throughout the week, and not just trying to look impressive on Sunday morning.

To be clear, this is NOT a message of works salvation. It is not a message of salvation. It is a message to the Church as the body of Christ.

Serving the Lord is a joy, but it can be messy and dirty and come in many forms, even the form of a Godly homemaker. Some day I will trade in those dirty shoes for a crown, which I will lay at His feet.

As usual, take the matter to prayer. Ask the Lord if there is a message for you in it. The message He lays on your heart may be different than the one He gave me.

These are the Bible verses impressed upon me concerning the dream:

Whatever you do, work heartily as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. Colossians 3:23-24

Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth. 2 Timothy 2:15

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? so run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 1 Corinthians 9:24-25

In all toil there is profit, but mere talk lends only to poverty. Proverbs 14:23

The hardworking farmer must be first to partake of the crops. Consider what I say, and may the Lord give you understanding in all things. 2 Timothy 2:6-7I

I’m sure there are many more, but these are the first to come to mind which speak to me personally. I welcome any thoughts.

Maranatha

 

 

 

100 Seconds on the Clock

On January 23, 2020, the “Doomsday Clock” was moved forward. One minute and forty seconds remain before midnight.

According to Wikipedia:

The Doomsday Clock is a symbol that represents the likelihood of a man-made global catastrophe. Maintained since 1947 by the members of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists,[1] the Clock is a metaphor for threats to humanity from unchecked scientific and technical advances. The Clock represents the hypothetical global catastrophe as “midnight” and the Bulletin’s opinion on how close the world is to a global catastrophe as a number of “minutes” to midnight, assessed in January of each year. The main factors influencing the Clock are nuclear risk and global warming (climate change).[2] The Bulletin’s Science and Security Board also monitors new developments in the life sciences and technology that could inflict irrevocable harm to humanity.[3]

The Clock’s original setting in 1947 was seven minutes to midnight. It has been set backward and forward 24 times since then, the largest-ever number of minutes to midnight being 17 (in 1991), and the smallest 100 seconds (1 minute and 40 seconds) in January 2020.

However, we don’t need the Bulletin of Atomic Sciences to tell us the end is near.

Nothing man can imagine or predict, or do, will change God’s plan and purpose. The Doomsday Clock perpetrates a false narrative. This is obvious since one of the “indicators of doom” is climate change.

Cataclysmic natural disasters will come, but not because of man’s idea of climate change.

I am of the belief that the demonic powers which deceive the powers-that-be-globalists are very much aware of what Scripture says about the end times, specifically the wrath of God as outlined in the book of Revelation. As part of their deceptive agenda, they will claim the terrible events of the Tribulation on climate change, in an I told you so fashion.

The metaphorical clock is ticking, however, and we have a more reliable tool with which to tell time.

The word of God, as written in the Holy Bible, outlines what it will be like in the end, and while we cannot know the day or hour of the Rapture, we can see the season and know things are beginning to wrap up. The stage is certainly being set. We’ve been able to see certain signs for some time: the reestablishment of Israel as a nation, the wars and rumors of wars, the love of people growing cold, the rise in narcissism, false christs coming and going, the push for a world government, religion and monetary system. These things, and more, are growing in both intensity and frequency.

The key indicators that we are in the last moments before the events of Revelation can be summed up in one word: Convergence.

We see the convergence of end times stage setting in multiple ways, but I want to focus on what I consider to be heretofore the most unprecedented and ground breaking, a blaring siren, if you will. As someone who studied theater and stage managed many shows, now is the time I would be cueing the techies to lower the house lights, fade up the intro music and be ready to open the curtain. The show is about to begin.

Only this isn’t the theater. This is the realest of real life and there are three recent events converging that have gotten my attention like none other.

First, we have rabbis who claim to be in communication with someone they call messiah. For more info, I wrote of this HERE.

Second, is the technology recently patented byMicrosoft which enables one to mine cryptocurrency through the use of their body.  (which interestingly enough includes the number 060606) Plus, MIT has now developed a way to store a person’s health/vaccination history just under the skin using a kind of infrared dye which can be detected by a smartphone. This, coupled with questionable vaccinations which may alter one’s DNA, and ID 2020, we can see the technology behind the mark of the beast take form. 

Thirdly, we have France’s Emmanuel Macron positioning himself as leader of the world. Will he be the man of perdition, THE antichrist? I have no idea. I do believe the beast is alive and well, but it is not yet his time.

The convergence of these three, in addition to all the other signs of the time, highlight the fact that we truly are living in unprecedented times. The stage is set. The rapture of the Bride of Christ is imminent. All we are waiting for is for the Restrainer (whom I believe is the Holy Spirit) to step out of the way (taking the Bride with Him), then the curtain will part to reveal the man of perdition himself and the Tribulation will follow.

BUT WAIT! THERE IS GOOD NEWS!

As I was waking from a nap on Tuesday, without thinking about it, I asked the Lord “How much longer? What else needs to happen before you come for us?” His response was immediate. In the still, small, voice I heard, “Nothing has to happen. My delay is not because certain events need to transpire. I will call for my people when whosoever will come, comes.” 

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. 2 Peter 3:9

As uncertain as this world has become, His is a peace which passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7) He is waiting for that last person who will turn to Him, and in His infinite knowledge, He knows just who that is. (John 3:16)

Is it YOU? Check out the page “Are You Ready”for more info.

While working on this post, S.T. Lloyd published THIS article. It is very similar to mine and is a good example of how the Holy Spirit is moving.


In the meantime, sisters and brothers, keep serving, keep strong, keep your lamps full, and keep looking up…..For our redemption draweth nigh.

Maranatha!

 

 

 

 

 

The Coming Genetic Apocalypse

This video was posted by my dear friend S.T. Lloyd on her blog Serve Him In The Waiting. Hey Sandra!

Anyway, this is definitely worth the watch. Did you know, the DNA needs to change by ONLY 1 % for the person to no longer be human? Well, the video discusses this very thing, and more.
