1b3ca52f3e1aa5e79fd6e639e97b8337“God is not a man, that He should lie……Has He said, and will He not do? Has He spoken, and will He not make it good? Num. 23:19 (NKJV) In addition, Not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished.” Matt 5:18 (NIV) Jesus constrained his disciples to get into a ship, and go to the other side…..Than, He went up into a mountain to pray.

The evening came…..the ship was in the midst of the sea, tossed with waves: for the wind was contrary.” Matt 14:22-24 (NKJV)) My friends, the disciples tried in vain to get to the other side.  Mark 6:48 (NKJV) says “Christ saw them straining at rowing, for the wind was against them.”

My friends, how often is the wind against us and we “tug at the oars, as though our own strength and wisdom were sufficient, until we find our efforts useless. Then, with trembling hands and failing strength, we give up the work to Jesus and confess we are unable to perform it…..

And when, in answer to the cry of faith, He takes up the work we ask Him to do, how easily He thaccomplishes that which seemed to us so difficult” (E.G. White Testimonies for the church, vol. 4, p 530) My friends, we need to recognize that our strength is insufficient to finish the course because “we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, and the rulers of the darkness of this world.”

And only through God’s word and Spirit will we remain focused until Christ says “well done thy good and faithful servant.” And this should give us hope when life is at its darkest, the anchor will hold to the end. Because if God said it, “He will make it good.” In Matt. 24 (KJV), Christ disciples asked What God’s children all-ready know today.

“What shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?” My friends the daily “breaking news” tells us prophecy is being fulfilled daily. But these are only the beginning of “birth pangs” as we adapt to any and all situations in the final days of the history of this world. But are we mentally prepared for a time of great tribulation, such has not occurred since the beginning of this world until now, nor ever shall be.”

“Training day” has started and the grueling routine should have begun with you and I dying daily while carrying our Cross. And except those days are shortened, no flesh will be saved, but for the elect’s sake, God will bring it to an end……But this generation will not pass away until the good news is revealed to all and then the end will come.”

blessed-hope-jesus-return-4_n1-300x198Friends, the wind is contrary, and has taken its toll, but we must never loose sight of His soon appearing and Christ final promise of “Him descending from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God.

And the dead in Christ rising first: Then we which are alive and remain [who came out of the great tribulation and washed our robes making them white in the blood of the Lamb will] be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and all the redeemed will forever be with the Lord.” [If we believe] 1 Thess. 4:16-18 (KJV), Rev 7:14 (ESV)
