This ties in nicely with what I recently shared last about being ready in the midst of the earthquake’s tremors.
My Utmost For His Highest has been part of my personal devotions since 1990 and so often it confirms events or decisions going on in my life. Although the Bible is my first source of wisdom, this devotional has also mentored me.
My grand son James William Tucker has just now come into the world, may he grow strong and be ever ready to hear the voice of his Creator.
This morning I spoke with Bill about how I am hearing more and more people sharing dreams about the Ark. Around two years ago I had a vivid dream of Noah’s Ark and heard the urgent cry to “Get in! Get in!”
Within six months I had another dream where I was looking for room in the Ark for my family and I had to go to the very top level (12th floor) as the rest of the Ark was full and there was no room below. The 12th floor signifies the 12th hour. It is not so much about signalling the end of the world but the end of the world as we know it.
The Ark is Jesus Christ. He is the Light of the world, the Saviour of the whole earth. I said to Bill it is all about repenting of sins and being clean so that we can hear Him when He speaks to us.
You know, it is quickly becoming obvious that Christians are pests, fundamental and unbending, believing in that dusty ol’ book, the Bible and professing Jesus as the only way to God.
Bill and I have been in countries that were under attack or under threat (think 9/11, collapse of Soeharto, race riots and Mumbai terrorist attacks). As I walked down the hallway yesterday I heard a quiet small voice say something about the next time it will be something BIG.
We are living in India, in a 14th floor apartment and today my building swayed and I swayed and swaggered with it while the water in the pool below rippled under the impact of Iran’s earthquake.
I remained remarkably calm, so much so that I didn’t contact Bill and forgot about it as quickly as it had happened.
I am prepared.
This morning my devotional reading came from John 12:35 and 36.
“‘Yet a little while is the light with you. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness come upon you: for he that walks in darkness knows not where he is going.
While you have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light.”
Are you ready for eternity?
It came to me suddenly this morning that I have been an eternity seeker all my life. From the youngest age I wept prayers to Jesus and felt sorrowful seeing His death portrayed every Easter. Although I lost the way in my youth, Jesus found me and by His amazing grace He leads me towards eternity today.
Here is another eternity seeker, the actor who portrayed Jesus in the Passion of the Christ. I just love what he says at 27:00, “Brothers and sisters you weren’t meant to fit in (to the world) you were meant to stand out!”
Stand out for Jesus and bless His Holy name
He is the Way, the Truth and the Life.
I love a man who can cry.
Cry over the apathy that is pervading the church. The church that sings nice songs and loves every body and is careful to not offend anyone. The church that is more interested in you having a healthy bank balance rather than a burden for the lost.
On Sunday my son, my daughter and her husband were baptised as a public declaration of their faith. When I saw the photos of this event, I sensed the Holy Spirit had come upon them and sealed them for His service.
I know them, they are unwilling to compromise their faith nor water down the gospel of Jesus Christ in a world that is quickly turning against Christians.
Where do you stand in the light of eternity?
