Prepared or Unprepared….
It’s Imminent ….Are You Ready?
But the end of all things is near. Therefore be of sound mind, self-controlled, and sober in prayer. I Peter 4:7
I had read an article a while ago in which the author was sounding an alarming alert. He was warning us of an attack of an insect called the Cicadas which was expected to make their appearance before the end of that month. The problem that these insects were posing was the fact that billions of them had been “festering” underground for about 17 years and would now make their appearance.
As I continued to read the article – I began to correlate this attack in the natural as a revelation to what is also occurring in the realm of the spirit. We can’t ever forget that the enemy hasn’t played his “trump card” yet. He also has “weapons of mass destruction” that have been previously hidden – but which will soon emerge.
Although his attack is imminent – you don’t have to be victimized by it. Are you ready for these attacks? Have you renewed your mind and thought patterns to those of a kingdom warrior? Have your disciplined yourself physically and emotionally to the extent that you have the ability to maintain your focus in the midst of extreme adverse situations and conditions? Will your stamina, allegiance and commitment to the Lord remain that unshaken foundation - regardless?
In the same fashion that we had been warned about the onset and destructive ability of these cicadas – the Lord has given to us a warning through His prophets about our future. Have you correlated the recent attacks which have been directed towards various modes of transportation, extreme weather conditions and mass killings to the release of an endtime spirit and strategy of the enemy? Or have you not even noticed all of the recent “accidents” which have involved: the cruise liners (attacks in the water); the enormous amount of plane crashes and disappearances (attacks in the air); and now the devastating train wrecks, the increase in shootings, school bus accidents and other acts of violence (attacks on the land)? …(and the school buses represented a dual attack; an attempt to destroy our seed and impose a spirit of fear concerning our children!) If we take heed to these warnings – we will have the advantage and the ability to be prepared for every attack. Now is the time to make the proper preparations. If your mind is properly prepared – you will go through the fire and emerge not even having a hair on your head singed; nor having the smell of smoke.
Be determined that you will begin today to aggressively seek the Lord for the wisdom to implement a strategic plan of endurance. Gird up the loins of your mind NOW! Daily proclaim: “I have the mind of Christ”. Be determined to not be distracted by what you see in the realm of the spirit or hear or by what you see - physically. Too many Saints are saying that they don’t listen to the news because it’s depressing. Well….Get a grip and grow up! It’s time to become more mature, face the enemy and not be swayed by what he is attempting to do. We have no need to fear – only to be prepared. We must also remember that the ultimate battle has already been won – we simply have to know how to walk in that victorious state of PEACE.
Yes,… another, more sever attack is imminent…. ARE YOU READY?
“So brace up your minds; be sober (circumspect, morally alert); set your hope wholly and unchangeably on the grace (divine favor) that is coming to you when Jesus Christ (the Messiah) is revealed.” I Peter 1:13 AMP
