Israel`s disobedience brought the Old Testament “Day of the Lord” judgment as the Babylonians came and brought great destruction in 587 BC. That Old Testament “Day of the Lord” was a foreshadowing of the final great “Day of the Lord” judgment in whose shadow we now stand.
God`s mercy and longsuffering finally ran out and He sent Jeremiah to pronounce that His forbearance had come to an end. We see that pronouncement in Jeremiah 5:23, “But this people hath a revolting and a rebellious heart; they are revolted and gone.”
They had passed the point of no return. There is a sign on the banks of the Niagara River which says, “Past Redemption Point.” You can hear the thundering waters of the mighty falls.
You can see at that point that the river turns into a raging, wild, swirling of white water.
For any soul that passes that point in the river all hope is gone, their fate is sealed. They will be crushed by the waters on the rocks below the falls.
That was Israel’s position when Jeremiah brought God’s final message to rebellious Israel. Jeremiah 7:16, “Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up cry nor prayer for them, neither make intercession to me: for I will not hear thee.” The hour was late, “The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved” (Jeremiah 8:20).
As we approach the final great “Day of the Lord” our world has hardened their hearts against God. The world has trampled on God’s Word at every turn. Our world has become like Sodom. Our world has defied God concerning His people Israel. Only God knows when our world will pass the point of no return if it has not already passed that point.
All of the signs around us seem to indicate the judgment of God is about to fall. Only the Lord knows the timing of that catastrophic hour, next week, next month or next year, it can’t be far away!
I feel like casting caution to the winds as I observe what is happening in our world at this very hour. Ezekiel said, “Blow the trumpet and warn the people.”
In Europe the final stages of preparation for the coming of Antichrist are falling into place. The turmoil in Europe is the exact scenario Daniel forecast for the appearing of Antichrist.
In America the signs of disintegration and turmoil are everywhere, only blinded eyes cannot see what is coming. Warnings of destruction by EMP attacks are shrugged off. Economic, political and social collapse is looming on the near horizon. America does not fit into the end time scenario and is actually in the way of that scenario’s unfolding. The stage is set for America’s demise.
In the Mideast the preparations for the war of Psalm 83 are racing into place. The only situation that needs changing is the movement of Jordan into the anti-Israel camp. News reports indicate that the Arab spring is about to overtake Jordan, watch for a radical Islamic government in Jordan.
My friends the hour is late! Before that great “Day of the Lord” begins the trumpet will sound and Bride of Christ will go to the Father’s house. The rapture is a sign less event that does not depend on fulfilment of prophecy, we only know that it occur prior to the “Day of the Lord.”
I have never felt such a sense of urgency to warn those who are unsaved. Now is the time to come to Christ in repentance and faith. Choose now before it is forever too late! Choose now between eternity in heaven with all of the blessings of God upon you and eternity in the lake of fire.
