This month, there’s a convergence of interesting phenomena in conjunction with many Jewish holidays and feasts. I have friends who think that this month is a very strategic month, maybe even the return of Jesus. I also have friends who think that the end of the world things in Sept is nothing more than history being repeated yet again.
Regardless of your opinion, if you think Jesus is returning this month or not, let’s keep some essential priorities in mind, based on Jesus’ teachings when He lived among us:
As a follower of Jesus, these two commandments need to shape my priorities and how I live everyday, so that whenever Jesus does return, He finds me doing His work 🙂
We live in a very interesting time. There are people chopping off heads & think that’s entirely acceptable & even praiseworthy – weird. This week had the 2nd blood moon in a year – also unusual. Furthermore, Ebola is now being compared to AIDS for its potential devastation to humanity value – yikes! And then lots of people think we are in the end times of the world – that God is wrapping up the human experience to move into a new era of life.
I think we live in strange times, for sure. But with that being said, there are some important things to keep in mind:
*God is still in control & God is love (a very good combination)
*lets be sure to stay fresh & intense with our prayer life
*be careful not to let fear control your thinking or outlook
Last night the moon was eclipsed & had some red overtones to it, hence the term “blood moon.” I woke up at 1a to see what it was like & it was pretty impressive! As I was watching the moon, I was reminded of how Jesus talked about there being signs in the heavens in the end times. There have been lots of thoughts & speculations about there being 4 blood moons this year & what that could possibly mean.
While I think that we are definitely living in an interesting time, I’m reminded that fundamentally God requires 3 things from us, based on Micah 6:8
*walk humbly with God
Happy day to you! Hope life is groovy & grand for you in this 24 hour gift. 🙂
Mom & I have tv taping today & it has the potential to be somewhat intense. We’ll be talking about the end times, a topic mom is quite good at & I’m still in the “learning to bake chicken” phase of this topic (see the back in the kitchen post from last week). So if that didn’t make any sense to you, let’s simplify & suffice it to say “please pray for us today for TV taping to go smoothly & have Jesus’ presence on it.”
