It's High Time

One of the most fascinating things about God’s Word is it’s alive! Hebrews 4:12 says the, Word of God is living and powerful, sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and morrow, and is a discerner of thoughts and intents of the heart. 

What an amazing verse! Everything you need to know about life and how to respond to circumstances is revealed in His Word! God’s Word also presents to us hope in a world filled with chaos. Theologians call it, “End Times” or “Bible Prophesy” resulting with the glorious return of Jesus Christ. But before Jesus can come, there are certain events that must “come to pass”. One of those events are beginning to happen right now! The call for Jews to return to Israel. There are many Bible passages that predict the return of Israel to the land of Palestine. Here is one:

Ezekiel 20:34 I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out.

My friend, Dr. John Melanin, who is a missionary and archeologist to Israel and will be in our services the morning of April 12, 2015, said this: 

“While Sue and I were in Israel we spoke with Jews from at least 19 countries. The Jews are returning to Israel.Today Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu invited the Jews of Europe to move to Israel due to rising anti-Semitism. Is this the method God will use to re-gather the Jews as described in the Bible?

Here are two articles to reference:

What an exciting time! And the only response to this is Praise! God’s Word calls this - “High Time” Romans 13:11 Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. 

Let me give you a few things you can do today. 

1- Be a great Witness for others to see Jesus living inside of you. It’s time for Christians to awaken because something awesome is happening among us!

2. Pray! Joel 2:12,13 says to pray for a great return to God with a Spirit of brokenness, fasting, weeping and mourning. 

Let’s stay awake, be a great witness and pray for God’s amazing Spirit to come down! Let’s pray and experience a great revival in the homes and peoples lives across our world, nation and the cities in Greater Austin. 

Father, You are Lord of all the earth and I want to shout your name so it can fill the skies with an endless praise! Let my life be a great witness for you today so this world might see Jesus. We want to experience a great revival while Your Word comes to pass in our very sight. In the wonderful and beautiful name of Jesus I pray, amen.
