DISCERN THIS TIME
Luke 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
Luke 12:50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
Jesus says here, how can He rest until all baptisms are accomplished! Brothers, there are many more that Jesus wishes to be saved before his appearing. Do your work and help to bring this about, now while we still can.
Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Luke 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.
Luke 12:53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
Jesus tells us that in this time in which we live, there will be division among families, He tells us here that this division was known by Jesus, and that we are to be that more vigilant, in this hour of His soon appearing.
Luke 12:54 And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is.
Luke 12:55 And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass.
Luke 12:56 Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time?
Jesus tells us here that you can discern the weather and the changes that are coming in regard to the weather here on earth. He then says, you hypocrites why can't you see that the season of his appearing is NOW!
Luke 12:57 Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?
He says, Why can't you judge what is right and do it now before it is to late. For shortly Jesus will take his Church away, to be caught up with him in heaven, and then the false prophet, the antichrist, and the devil will have his way. For we the Church have held the devil back, but when we are taken away the great tribulation will come to those left behind.
Luke 12:58 When thou goest with thine adversary to the magistrate, as thou art in the way, give diligence that thou mayest be delivered from him; lest he hale thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and the officer cast thee into prison.
Luke 12:59 I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast paid the very last mite.
When these are loosed upon the earth, those who do not take the mark of the beast can not buy or sell anything. Then will they be killed or put into prison to die.
Brothers how long will most people who are left behind be able to with stand the taking of the mark. There will be those families who will be here during the tribulation. How very difficult it will be for them to set and watch their children and grandchildren starve to death because the parents can not go and earn money to buy food and shelter for them. The Bible tells us plainly that when they take the mark of the beast their damnation is secured.
The Bible tells us that many will refuse and be killed, but so so many will not have the strength to do so. This is why we must attempt to bring the truth of God's word to all of the lost souls that we can in this very late hour. What if Jesus came tomorrow? Would you have done all that you could to be a witness for Christ Jesus. I pray that you will go about doing His work that He has given you to do. Please DO IT NOW, for we have no promise of a tomorrow.
God Bless you my brothers. Please go and do His work!
