Mark 4:3 & 26 – Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: & So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
Are you a Christian? Do you truly believe that Jesus Christ is the first-born Son of God, that He died on the cross, that He was raised from the dead, and that He now sits on the right hand of Father? If you do, then you are Christian. And it’s likely that you may have asked yourself this question, or something like it. In the coming Second Milers, I believe the Lord would have me address some of the events of our day from a Biblical perspective, avoiding the speculation of science, the medical community, politicians, nationalists, and the like. As a Christian, I choose to believe God, His Word, and the leadership of Holy Ghost. I choose to believe that Father, Son (the Word made flesh), and Holy Ghost will always function in complete harmony, never at odds with one another. It is from that basis that I seek to respond to the question set forth in this series of Second Milers.
Many people believe we are living in the last days, they being the days just prior to the coming of Jesus for His Church. I believe that is true. As it was in the days of Noah, so shall our days be. In those days, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, and the earth was filled with violence. That is certainly true today, only much worse, for the population of man is so much greater, and the means by which man perpetrates violence upon one another is so much greater, too. There are so many Scriptures that describe our times. Men shall be lovers of pleasure more than lovers of God. There shall be a great falling away from the things of God. All these things are doubtlessly true, and rampant indeed in the earth. So many other Scriptures have been and are being fulfilled that one must be truly spiritually blind to fail to recognize the truth of our time. Sadly, while so many are blinded to these truths, the Bible is very clear about it. We are warned again and again, and that accurately and descriptively, that these times would come into the earth and upon the church. It is for such times as these that the Lord has raised up the church of this hour. Father had given all necessary equipping for the church to rise up, win the victory, and walk in that victory to the glory of God. To that end, we MUST keep our faith strong and stand unwaveringly as we see the salvation of the Lord.
