The Signs of the times

The Signs of the Times and the End of the Age
Matthew 24
Now as He sat on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to Him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?”
And Jesus answered and said to them: “Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for [a]all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, [b]pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake.10 And then many will be offended, will betray one another, and will hate one another. 11 Then many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures to the end shall be saved. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come.Every day, 13 Christians worldwide are killed because of their faith. Every day, 12 churches or Christian buildings are attacked. And every day, 12 Christians are unjustly arrested or imprisoned, and another 5 are abducted. So reports the World Watch List (WWL), the latest annual accounting from Open Doors of the top 50 countries where Christians are the most persecuted for following Jesus.
“You might think the [list] is all about oppression. … But the [list] is really all about resilience,” stated David Curry, president and CEO of Open Doors USA, introducing the report released today.
“The numbers of God’s people who are suffering should mean the Church is dying—that Christians are keeping quiet, losing their faith, and turning away from one another,” he stated. “But that’s not what’s happening. Instead, in living color, we see the words of God recorded in the prophet Isaiah: ‘I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert’” (Isa. 43:19, ESV).
The listed nations contain 309 million Christians living in places with very high or extreme levels of persecution, up from 260 million in last year’s list.
Another 31 million could be added from the 24 nations that fall just outside the top 50—such as Cuba, Sri Lanka, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE)—for a ratio of 1 in 8 Christians worldwide facing persecution. This includes 1 in 6 believers in Africa and 2 out of 5 in Asia. Thank the Lord for revival that is also present that give people hope in God and they do not fight or become defiant but gladly accept what they are going through. This is being able to accept the fact the Lord is in control for their spirits are already for the Lord blessing. How much longer do we have on planet earth is known only to God and I want to encourage you all to Pray for Ben Dulany and His wife and family that they will have that burden from our area that people will be attracted to the Spirit of God. Ginny and I will be praying for you all that you will grow in your relationship to God and one another. Ben is not me, but He is a child of the Lord wanting to be accepted as your pastor, so he can be free to minister to all who are members and those who are in need of help in our area. I hope you will open up to Pastor Ben and be supportive in our attendance and prayer, so the Harrah Assembly of God becomes a great lighthouse than ever before.
No One Knows the Day or Hour
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of [f]heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

WHAT HAPPENS WHEN I DO NOT DESIRE GODS LOVE, MERCY, AND GRACE?
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 02 September 2022

Our relationship to God is a fact for He created us in His image so we can delight in His glory of love that is full of Joy unspeakable and full of glory of God.
Joy is not optional it is what God created, for it is love in action. I choice to follow the Lord and be full of His glory which is a necessary to enjoy life the Lord wants to give us. God created everything for His glory and said it was good so we can be like His image good, righteous and holy.  It is far more than will power, but by being impowered by the Holy Spirit of God. We can’t, but God can create in us a good attitude and behavior as we abide in the vine; Jesus as John 15 tells us to do. There is no glory in sin, for the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life, now and forever. Whatever we treasure with our emotions of the soul’s imagination, conscience, memory, reason and affection is what we are going to get. That is the reason we need to be controlled by Gods spirit which needs to worship, reverence, have faith and hope in God to answer our prayers. It is not by might, or by power, but by the Spirit of God, we are able to be and have the Joy of the Lords blessing.
Joy is allowing the Lord to give us blessing from His treasure house. His mercy is new every morning, so we are able to face what is going on in our world of sin and shame. Jesus describes our conversation as being born again. Matthew 13:44 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” Are you seeing the mine field of blessing the Lord has given all His creation who finds the Benefits of the Kingdom of God? We have an engagement ring from God, as we accept the gifts that Jesus gave for us all in life. Notice Peter in Mark 10:28-30 Then Peter began to say to Him, “See, we have left all and followed You.”29 So Jesus answered and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother [a]or wife or children or [b]lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, 30 who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life. How do we live in persecution, sufferings and hardships? Look at lawlessness, war, people lusting for evil, people against the truth. People accepting right as wrong and wrong as right! How do you react, are you enduing and loving and kind to people? Remember God is loving, good and kind, regardless of how He was treated. He faced others with the truth so they could be saved healed and forgiven. 
Matthew 13:44 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. Matthew 5:11-12  “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” God want to bless us regardless of what is going on all around us, and when you’re walking in the truth your going to be misunderstood and persecuted. Girl are girls and Boys are boys for a reason that God wants to bless. What we are seeing is Marriage’s falling apart, because of no discipline of love in the home. 
Jesus talks about Himself and His Father Gods will John 15:11  These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.” What a precious gift He gave us all Joy unspeakable and full of Gods glory. Look at all the wonders of the World they do not save us they are beautiful full of wonder? How did that happen?
Life should be a wonderful sight as we are giving testimony of what the Lord has done and is still doing to us Showing His image to all we meet. 
We will never be perfect until we die and go to heaven, that is the reason it is a must we love others and have the Joy of the Lord regardless of what we are experiencing. Psalm 100:1-2 Make a joyful shout to the Lord, [a]all you lands! Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing.” Hard isn’t it? We can’t, but God can give us just what we need, so we do not drown in desperation. It is so easy to murmur and complain and that is not going to solve anything just make matters worse. Psalms 32:11” Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart!”
Psalms 37:4 “Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart.”
Philippians 4:4 “ Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!”
2 Corinthians 6:4-5  “But in all things we commend ourselves as ministers of God: in much [a]patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses, in stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fasting’s;”
2 Corinthians 6:8-10 “by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold we live; as chastened, and yet not killed; 10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.” This is not humanly possible but that is what God gives us when we accept His way truth and life.

Desiring God-Fight for Joy
Contributed by Jerral Campfield   
Friday, 26 August 2022

I listen to many sermons and John Piper is one. His message on Desiring God-Fight for Joy was very good, sent to me by our son Mike Campfield. So as I listened I took my own notes and used the Bible as a guide also for what I am writing. Ever since July 25 of this year when I got dehydrated then had a Covid test and it was positive I have not be able to do anything, but rest and listen to ministers to keep my faith which seem to not have any Joy for our Joy comes from doing the Lord will and since I was handicap with Covids Symptoms I could not taste food, nor have any energy to work at anything but resting. Then July 21 the Lord restored my desire to work for the Joy of the Lord is our strength and I knew it by what I was able to do before Surgery with a UROLIFT a proven approach to treating enlarged prostate by Doctor Lauer August 23. Which is getting better and better as Doctor Jesus does the healing. Doctors cut, God does the healing for which we have seen many times. So as I write to you today I am rejoicing in the glory of the Lord as my strength. I desire God and know we have to have faith to fight the giants of our lives with the Help of the Lord. 
 
Desiring God-Fight for Joy
 
What is your heart and mind thinking about God or Satan? Are they a thousand mile apart, or the same? We are Christ Ambassadors for the Kingdom of God, so we are on a mission showing and displaying Joy of the Lord. Philippians 1:22-25 New King James Version 22 But if I live on in the flesh, this will mean fruit from my labor; yet what I shall choose I [a]cannot tell. 23 [b]For I am hard-pressed between the two, having a desire to depart and be with Christ, which is far better. 24 Nevertheless to remain in the flesh is more needful for you. 25 And being confident of this, I know that I shall remain and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith. Are we living in the flesh which is sinful, or are we progressing in the joy of our faith in God? I want to make sure I am advancing using the faith God gave us all, to live in the joy of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 1:24 “Not that we [a]have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy; for by faith you stand”. Here Paul is telling us we do not have dominion, or power over our faith. Can you see it is not our faith it is Gods, given to us, so we are full of the joy of the Lord to see Gods grace in giving us Goodwill and peace!
1. What are you aiming to do with your life? What’s the reason you don’t do what is goodwill for peace of mind? Do you want breath, wealth and health? Yes, But God give us joy to live as we abide in the Lord, regardless of our emotions and feeling. It is not my well, but Gods will be done. We are living in a dangerous world with lawless abounding and circumstances around us is robing many of the joy of the Glory of the Lord. 
2. I am not on a mission to make you happy, I am on a mission to show you how the Bible will help us, as we decide to seek God and take great delight in how He give us the joy of the Lord. We are not saved by ourselves, but by choosing to follow the Lord. It is God’s sovereign will, as we trust and obey God. It is His Spirit that draws us and compels us to connect with His way, truth and life. It is a miracle given to all that call upon the Lord to forgive us of the wages of sin of death. God wants us to not waste time, but call upon Him know, that we can then delight in the Lords love, mercy, grace and justice.
