Beware for the Day of the Lord is at hand
Zephaniah 1:7 - Hold thy peace at the presence of the Lord GOD: for the day of the LORD is at hand: for the LORD hath prepared a sacrifice, he hath bid his guests.
Looking at the things happening many are thinking that the Judgment Day is at hand. They are right in some sense but they have mistaken of the Day. There are two days which are important:
1) The Day of the Lord (also called the Day of the Lord's Sacrifice or the Day of the Lord's Revenge)
2) The Day of Judgment (when the Jesus Christ comes back again and the world ends)
Like the scripture says we are not to be joyful about the Day of the Lord, for it is a day of darkness, a day of great shaking. All those are truly in the Lord are going to shine bright and those who are half in and half out and misrepresent the Lord are going to see the worst.
This Day is so important that a large portion of the Bible warns about this day. The true Church - the real people of God suffered for a long time and soon the Lord is going to revenge it. This Day is going to bring about a great change that has never been seen. The true people of God are going to shine bright so much that all people are going to be very afraid of them, for every word prophesized by them will manifest in the physical.
It is time the world sees who God is and who people of God really are. Like during Moses days when the Israelites carried the Ark of Covenant, no army dared to face them; if they did they were destroyed. So also when we truly carry our Cross no being (man or spirit) can stop us or harm us.
Even if we do not see the Day of the Lord, our children will surely see it. So let us prepare ourselves, them and others; that they shine and not suffer.
Please take this message very, very seriously so that you do not wakeup too late since the dark clouds are move in. What we are seeing is not even the start of what is to come.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You are slow to anger, but You never forget the cries of your people. When You revenge your people, the whole world will tremble. Lord, You have made us at a time when we will be witness to this event or the coming of this event. We pray Lord that we, our children and all our beloved are on the side of light and safe from your wrath. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
