God is good!
I pray all is well as we move into 2013! I heard recently that 2012 was the warmest year ever and I would say that so far with 14 days into January and temperatures in the 50s or more, we are into a good start for a match this year.
What a time we are having serving the LORD here in Virginia and as always I hope you are having the same experience where ever you are!
While this may not be the most exciting letter to many, I believe this information will be good for believers to be aware of. While many have been preaching a best selling movie, God has given us the information inside His Word to be aware of the end time events that we will go through, and just how much of it we will be here for, before "His Church" is actually taken out of here. I have heard it said by Christian after Christian that they do NOT like to read "The Book of Revelation", BUT, look what The Word of God actually says about those who DO read it!
Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophesy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.
Regardless of how you feel about reading The Book of Revelation, you are given a PROMISE to be blessed by reading, understanding and keeping the things that are written inside it's pages! I think it's safe to say, IF you don't read it, you will NEVER know what things you are suppose to do!
You will be BLESSED because you will understand that EVERYTHING is going just as GOD said it would while others tremble with great fear as in the days of the Exodus nearly 3400 years ago!
If you are not familiar with what a "Phoenix" is, let me assure you, it will be very easy for you to figure out if you are living inside the United States of America. All you need to do to get a close glimpse as to what a "Phoenix" is, is grab a one dollar bill out of your pocket and check out the back side of it! That strange looking Eagle on the back of your dollar was actually a "Phoenix" about 100 years ago and was modified to look more like an Eagle at that time. You can still tell that it is a "Phoenix" and not an Eagle if you really take a good look at it.
The Phoenix bird in legend would die and burn, plus, it would reappear later. In ancient cultures, it represented the false sun god (even a peacock or a strange feathered bird) or even Lucifer. That is why occult Secret Societies to this day outline a worship of Lucifer (or Satan). The Phoenix was called the shining one, which is an old name for Lucifer ironically.
2018 has been set as a projected year to establish a world wide currency that will replace the current dollar that is being used. This new currency, if the projected date sticks, will be known as "The Phoenix" which also means to "Rise from the Ashes" For some reason this kind of information seems to bum a lot of people out but it just makes me jump for joy as I see the pages of the bible unfolding right before our eyes as we move into the "Time of Jacobs Trouble."
Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even "The Time of Jacobs Trouble"; but he shall be saved out of it.
I remember an email a year or two ago from one of you that did not like me using the word "but" all the time in my emails, BUT, I bet your glad that one is in there! Now all we have to know is just WHEN will believers be saved out of it!
What kind of hope would you really have if you were not given a word almost 2600 years ago in The Book of Daniel and almost 2000 years ago in the Book of Revelation for our time today and see it unfold with such perfect timing as Jesus' approach to Lazarus four days AFTER he was dead? He's ALWAYS on time, so, all we need to do is just keep praising Him for the incredible information He has given His Prophets in The Word of God and the accuracy of the Word they were given!
Don't forget! The Book of Daniel is like a commentary for The Book of Revelation, so, be sure to put them both together or the "Profits" will be sure to confuse you!
And he said, Go thy way Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Interesting that the Book of Daniel is becoming more easy to understand as each day passes by!
It was mentioned yesterday in the service by one of the leaders in the English service, "If your neighbors house was on fire, wouldn't you try your best to make sure they knew and were out of dangers way before they were engulfed in the flames?" How much more should we be letting those next to us today know that there is only ONE WAY to escape the dangers that are coming upon many in "The Time of Jacobs Trouble!"
Have a blessed week! and be SURE to tell someone today about JESUS!
