WHEN AND THEN

Hello again folks! Please accept my apologies for not writing sooner. This week has been a week of being under attack! It's to be expected when you stick your neck out and you are not politically correct.
Since my last postings last Sunday all sorts of developments have taken place:-
  • The Sarkozy inspired 'peace' or ceasefire treaty between Russia and Georgia
  • The signing of the 'missile shield' pact between Poland and the USA
  • The unofficial announcement that the EU zone is nearing recession
  • The confirmation that 'Chip & Pin' has been seriously compromised
  • Increasing inflation in the UK
  • Significant earthquake in Los Angeles on San Andreas fault
  • Todd Bentley files for separation from wife
  • Oil price deflation
  • Above inflation water utility rate increases in the UK
  • UN sanctions against Iran torpedoed by Angela Merkel’s green light for $157 m gas deal
  • Israel backs Georgia in Caspian Oil Pipeline Battle with Russia
  • Walid Jumblatt deserts Lebanon’s pro-Western; pro-Israel camp for Hizbollah

The above is just a small snapshot of what has been going on [besides the Olympics] and one thing springs to mind.

WHEN there are wars and rumours of wars; when there is ongoing economic meltdown; when the Russian bear is flexing it's talons southward toward the beautiful land - in league with Persia; when there are various famines, earthquakes, and odd weather occurrences; when the True Gospel is suppressed; when True Christians are in multiple persecutions; when the nominal 'church' is more like the world than the 'ekklesia' it should be; when there is a falling away from True Doctrine by real 'born again' believers; when the 'church' is easily and openly deceived by doctrines of demons; when more money is spent on infanticide/abortion than feeding people; when land is given up for fuel rather than for crops - and when all these 'whens' are happening at the same time ... THEN it is time to not be afraid; shrink back and worry but to follow the Word of the Lord Jesus Christ.

  • "... when these things begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; for your redemption draws near." [Luke 21:28]
