                                            Great  Preparation

One morning as I was waiting on the Lord, He started to speak to me about Matt 24: 42-44

42 Wake up therefore, for you do not know in what hour your Lord will come.

43 But know this, if the house owner had known in what watch the robber would come, he would have been awake and would not have allowed his house to be broken into.

44 Because of this, be also ready, because at the hour in which you are not expecting, The Son of Man will come.( Original Aramaic)

                                                                                                                                        

Some of the key things I want you to take a note of are wakeup therefore, and but know this? The Lord was saying Wake up- you do not know (you are unaware of what is about to take place) because you are asleep.  Secondly But know this, “if the house owner had known” this would say that we have the ability to know what is coming.

In Vs 44 it said “Be also Ready” He wants us to stay awake and be ready, and watching, if not you will ignore the prior preparations, before the return of the Lord, and I believe much needed instructions. We must hear what the spirit is saying to the church in this hour. Otherwise we will be taken unaware by all that is coming.

Vs 39 of the same chapter says “ And  they did not perceive until the flood came and took them all away, thus will be the coming of The Son of Man. See in the time of Noah, they did not listen to the instructions of God which were being told threw Noah, and the flood came and they were destroyed. God’s will is that he wishes that none shall perish, but if we keep refusing to listen to what He has said, we will end up like the time of the flood. When we hear the things in the world, the elite are preparing, saying something is about to happen, but the church is asleep, we say that the world is running in fear, and we feel that the Lord will take care of us, you see if we will decided to ignore His instructions, we will be taken unaware by all that is coming. Another point that I would like to make is how we very conveniently ignore the warnings, just as they did in Noah’s time, and say that the warnings were for Noah and his family, because they were righteous, and others were not, so they were destroyed. And the church today correlates that to the Rapture, saying that we are the righteous of the Lord, and will be taken away, and the unrighteous left behind, to suffer the wrath of God.

If Noah was warning the people to pay attention to what was about to happen, I feel if the people would have listened, many would not have lost their lives. I feel as you are reading this, and thinking, this word, relates  to salvation of the lost, to warn them of the coming of the Lord, yes we are always expected to announce the Good News of the Gospel to bring many to a place of repentance, but I see more than that in this.

Look at Gen 6:22”Thus did Noah; according to all that God commanded him, so did he.” See he obeyed what God told him, and he did, He did not ignore the preparation needed  to protect his family, he could have just thought to himself, I and my family are righteous, and God will take care of us, no he took heed to the instructions of the Lord and prepared. This way he was not taken unaware by all that took place. Yes Noah’s righteousness had all to do with his escape, but he still prepared and was able to escape what was coming.

In Matt 24 we have our instruction as Noah had in his time of destruction, when we read in Matt 24:38 “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that No-e entered into the ark.” See this is what was going on during Noah’s time, we are living today as business as usual, forgetting what the word says “Just as in the day of Noah so will it be in the day of the coming of the Lord’ It is not saying on the day when the Lord comes, not to focus on one day, but His coming days prior to that days we are living in.

If you had a friend or a relative, you knew is coming, you would be looking forward to that, doing all your preparation, counting down the days of their coming. The preparation for their coming is very important till they come at your door. In Matt 24:32-33 “Now learn a parable of the fig tree; when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh; vs. 33. So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.”

See we are to know the prior days (of His coming) that prior means before the end, we are expected to pay close attention to. Let me share with you My Husband Ps Lu, when he was in India few weeks ago, one morning in his time with the Lord, The Lord spoke to him and said “Son I am coming soon, sooner than what people think” and it put a fear of the Lord in him, It’s time to wake up and pay more close attention to the preparation. As the scripture said summer has arrived, and the tree is about to bare its fruit, this means that much attention is to be given to the season of the Lord’s return, so we will know how to escape what is to come. He says that they were marrying in Noah’s days, who were marrying; the sons of God came to the daughters of men. It also says they will be marrying prior to the end of days in “Matthew”.

I don’t believe that it means just a man and women carrying on and not paying attention to the days we are approaching; it is a warning to us that there will be the marrying of unclean marriages as it was in the days of Noah. In Noah’s days the giants were having unclean relationships, is this an indication that there will be demonic beings in the days to come that will interact with women like in Noah’s days. I know what we see today where Man to man and women to women marriages are unclean and are demonically inspired, our laws in our land are changing and soon there is nothing that will be able to stop its agenda.

Some believe demonic being will enter the earth again, and have relationship as it was in the time of Noah, I believe that demons have and are living inside many causing unrighteousness to overtake God given way of life. If God destroyed the whole Earth in Noah’s days, because of the unrighteousness in those days, he will do the same today.

I plead to you don’t let time pass you by, get your preparations done, get on you watch and don’t let the robber steal from you, because you are not awake.
