I will STAND like a guard to watch and place myself at the tower.
I will WAIT to see what the Lord will say to me.
– Habakkuk 2:1

BTCE with Mik


Are you surprised to still be here? Every year, the pre-tribbers get riled up and become convinced this is the year Jesus will return. I'll admit, the astronomical signs this year are quite interesting, maybe even compelling. BUT. Did you know that Jesus is watching the signs right along with us? For as united as the Godhead is, this ONE thing the Father has kept hidden from Jesus...so, if He doesn't know, I'm pretty sure nobody else is gonna know.

Things are heating up, it does seem like His return must be imminent, and we should live our lives in such relationship with Him that meeting Him in the air or on our deathbed won't catch us unprepared, but there's a whole lot of living to be done here while we wait. What you don't want, is to get caught obsessing about His return instead of living out the purpose He put you here for.

When He does return, be found doing His work.

Just like every year, the pre-tribbers are gearing up for the rapture next week (the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets is Sept 20). Some watchers are putting forth fairly compelling theories as to why this year HAS to be the year.

I will reiterate my annual PSA - a reminder that God is not on man's schedule and we don't get to tell Him when this is going to happen.

Don't get caught up in date setting, because your focus gets off of Christ and your kingdom assignment, and gets stuck on your exit strategy. If this Feast of Trumpets passes like the rest, and Jesus doesn't bend to the desires of the date setters and pre-tribbers, remember, don't lose faith.

Keep doing your job, and keep trusting God. His timing is perfect, but it will seem too late for most of us. Hang in there.

It's good to stay aware, and important to pray, but don't let all of this shake your faith. Keep your eyes on Jesus.
