Jesus didn’t come to this earth merely to present us with a new “belief system,” He came to teach and to demonstrate a new way of living out our lives according to radical principles based upon an entirely new set of values. So what does this look like? That’s a good question because most Christians today live their lives in such a way that they “look” just like everybody else (even if they happen to “believe” differently). What does authentic Christianity look like in today’s world? I can’t describe it but I am determined to pursue it.
Lately I have been writing a lot about end times, about the Laodicean Church, and the Queen of Babylon. Times are getting tougher, distractions are increasing, yet I truly believe that the Bride of Christ is waking up and heading into a time of purification. There are many challenges out there, but if our hearts are set upon following Jesus we have nothing to fear.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. (Luk 21:25-26)
According to this story there will be two major comets, both of them newly discovered, that will become visible in 2013. One of them is predicted to possibly glow brighter than a full moon! Traditionally comets are viewed as omens of disaster and doom. Comet sightings marked the death of Julius Caesar, the fall of Jerusalem, the end of Saxon England in 1066, and the fall of the Aztec king Montezuma. So what could two major comets in 2013 mean? I simply believe that they are warnings to the world telling us that we need to confirm what it is that we put our faith in. Those who put their faith in the world and its systems will be shaken, but those whose lives are given over to the Kingdom of Heaven will stand strong. In fact, I believe that for those who choose to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, the year 2013 will be a year of triple rainbows. Omens of doom will appear in the sky, but so will omens of hope! I’ve never seen a triple rainbow, but I expect to see one in 2013 and I’ll let you know when it happens.
In the meantime here are a few book suggestions for 2013 that will help us as we pursue Jesus and expand the Kingdom of Heaven:
The Bible (especially the New Testament)
Hello 2013, a new era has begun.
