Of the thousands of folks who receive The Daily Jot there is great diversity of opinion about how their Christianity should be played out. You are reading this because you do care about your walk with Christ, your relationship with YHVH God. I believe you are reading The Daily Jot because you care about others’ souls. And I believe you are reading The Daily Jot because you want to have greater understanding of the times from a Biblical worldview. 2012 was a landmark year in that our nation, its morals, its people, its government, deteriorated in many prophetic ways–it was landmark in that political leadership became prophetically active in supporting the very enemies of God in their quest to build worldwide dominion.
We as a Christian people are going to have to decide. Perhaps that decision is already made. I hope not. But we are going to have to decide what role we are to play in this prophetic end time. We are being led headlong into supporting evil with our tax money, with our integration into society, in almost all aspects of our life. By going along with it, we are supporting it. Now I know that this will spark internal debate, and many will be angry saying that they do not support the anti-God agenda of this dark and dying world. But phone calls, letters, emails, prayers amiss, wailing, declaring, are not getting the job done. Things are getting worse, not better. So we must determine where we stand in all of this.
First, I would encourage all Daily Jot readers to do a personal study on the end times using only the Bible that you might know exactly what we are dealing with. Do not use what teachers have taught or the latest commentary from your favorite preacher. Read and study the end times in the context of the Bible. You will find that from Genesis to Revelation that the Bible points to the return of Yeshua Ha Mashiach, Jesus Christ, and all that will occur when he returns. If you truly understand the end times from a contextual Biblical perspective–not various theories of what the latest televangelist or hot author has to say–you will know more precisely what we are facing and what to do about it.
Nehemiah tells how he led in rebuilding the wall around Jerusalem. It wasn’t easy. Nehemiah 4:8-9 says, “And conspired all of them together to come and to fight against Jerusalem, and to hinder it. Nevertheless we made our prayer unto our God, and set a watch against them day and night, because of them.” Verse 17 says, “…every one with one of his hands wrought in the work, and with the other hand held a weapon.” Even after the wall was rebuilt, there was conspiracy and internal fighting. Our path forward as Christians is not going to be an easy one. We have to understand this and be prepared for it. Determining a righteous place in our prophetic destiny may take repentance, prayer, action with one hand, and defending our work and our lives with the other.
