GOD WILL GET YOU THROUGH THE DARKNESS

Created on: 18th November 2020

Yes, the Great Tribulation – Jacob’s Trouble is a time of unparalleled judgment and hardship. But it is also one when the Holy Spirit is poured out on all flesh.  When the LORD protects, guides and provides for those, who harken to His voice when they leave Babylon - the Beast system.  

 

GETTING OUT OF HOUSE ARREST

The question is, are you fed up and exhausted with the present situation – of being under house arrest? If you are, what are you doing about it? Are you crying out to the LORD, as the children of Israel did, for God’s deliverance? This is the only way our condition is going to change. Not that the Tribulation will end, because that is going to run its course. Instead, God will hear our cry, as we align ourselves with His will and purposes – then the LORD will answer our call and lead us out into the wilderness of the people.  

As I live, says the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out, I will be king over you. 34 I will bring you out from the peoples and gather you out of the countries where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and an outstretched arm, and with wrath poured out; 35 and I will bring you into the wilderness of the peoples, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face. 36 As I entered into judgment with your ancestors in the wilderness of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you, says the Lord GOD. 37 I will make you pass under the staff, and will bring you within the bond of the covenant. 38 I will purge out the rebels among you, and those who transgress against me; I will bring them out of the land where they reside as aliens, but they shall not enter the land of Israel. Then you shall know that I am the LORD. (Ezekiel, 20:33-38)

There is hope, there is a way to escape the Great Reset. This is not found by being raptured - caught up and taken away to heaven, while the earth is judged. But by drawing close to God, and surrendering your entire life to Him, allowing God to direct your path.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. 7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, and turn away from evil. 8 It will be a healing for your flesh and a refreshment for your body (Prov. 3:5-8).

This, like many other scriptures, it is an eternal principle – truth; similarly as “Submit to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7). Notice both require us to do something, either, trust or acknowledge with all your being, and submit to God. In doing this, God will direct us, and the devil will flee from us. But suppose we do not submit to God, as we trust and acknowledge Him in every aspect of our lives. In that case, we are submitting to the devil – giving Satan control over parts of our lives.

 

DRAW CLOSE TO GOD

It is critical in these days that we continually draw close to and submit our lives to the LORD. This is how we work out our salvation in fear and trepidation.  It is as we do this the LORD will guide and protect us, as He leads us through the shadows of the valley of death. To a banquet table, He has set in the presence of our enemies.  It is how we overcome and endure to the end.

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; 3 though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult. (Psalm, 36:1-3). 

 

THE GREAT RESET

Yes, the Great Reset will not be a bed of roses, but neither is the Christian walk. The LORD is judging the sin of the earth because the sin of the nations has reached His throne. What we see transpiring is the blessings and curses being poured out upon the world in accordance with Deuteronomy 28-30. Curses for those who are in rebellion, and therefore committing sin, and blessings upon those who are not, who have submitted to the LORD. The question is, which group are you in? Let me clarify something, you can be saved and still be in rebellion to God, it is not a salvation issue, rather one of obedience and faith.  You see Biblical faith is practical – it is, hear and do, trust and obey, without asking God why. Furthermore, it is not a mental assent, but rather tangible, it is a substance, something concrete.  Biblical faith is that which a child has in its parents. They know they will protect and provide for them, whatever the cost. 

Remember, the angel of the LORD encamps around those that fear Him.  Furthermore, cannot God protect His people during the Great Tribulation? Is that not what Messiah prayed in His High Priestley prayer? To protect them and not take them out of the world.  However, we need to draw near and seek the LORD. We need to make Him our fortress, so He can bring us, His people on eagles wings to places of safety, just as He did Israel when He guided them through the wilderness. 

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me, and delivered me from all my fears. 5 Look to him, and be radiant; so your faces shall never be ashamed. 6 This poor soul cried, and was heard by the Lord, and was saved from every trouble. 7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them. 8 O taste and see that the LORD is good; happy are those who take refuge in him. 9 O fear the LORD, you his holy ones, for those who fear him have no want. (Psalms, 34:4-9). 

 

DARK WINTER – DARKER SUMMER

A dark winter and darker summer are before us, but we do not need to fear what is shortly going to transpire. For our hope is in the LORD, the maker of heaven and earth. Therefore, as we prepare for the trials before us, let us not lose heart. Rather let us seek to overcome by the blood of the lamb, our testimony and not shrinking from death.  As we surrender our all to God and trust Him in the days ahead. The question is what you are focused on? Are you fixed on the problems of this age and therefor fearful, or on God; the solution?

Yes, it is a reality many will lose their lives, but what is worse to die in sin or free from one’s trespasses?   Let me ask, what will you give for people to know the gospel? What will you do so that others will know the truth and gain eternal life? Will you give everything you have; will you lay your life down so others can know God? In the days ahead, many people will be martyred for their faith.  In their death, they will proclaim the gospel, and others will find hope and salvation in the LORD. However, today, we still have opportunities to proclaim, share the gospel; so, what are you doing? Are you hiding your light under a bushel? Shortly, it will be a crime to share our faith with people, yet this will not stop us, but while we have a degree of freedom, we must tell others.     

Time is short, Tribulation is here and far worse is at the door. The question is, are you feasting upon the lies and putrid vomit of the bless me prosperity gospel, that proclaims all is well, take the vaccine, it is how we love our neighbour?   They do not preach the truth, but lies from the pit. Yes, we are called to love our neighbour as ourselves,  but that does not mean taking a vaccine that WILL defile your body, the temple of the Holy Spirit.  Remember, scripture informs us that God’s people perish for lack of knowledge. 

I urge you, wake up, seek the LORD and make ready for what is about to come upon the earth, both physically, but more importantly spiritually – how you stand with God.  Regardless if you believe in Him or not, He is real, and you will stand before Him one day, and you cannot say no one told you, I have!

Do not be ignorant or put your head in the sand regarding what is transpiring, the Great Reset will usher in the Beast system. Please seek out fellowship with likeminded people. If you want to know more about how you can do this, please email me DIRECTLY at nathan@theportenttimes.co.uk  

Remember the LORD is sovereign, He has a way out if you will only humble yourself before Him and seek Him. Keep your eyes fixed on Messiah, do not allow yourself to be overwhelmed by what is transpiring, but fear the LORD. If God is for us, who can be against us.  Therefore, I urge you to do as the Psalmist wrote: “Be still, and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.” 11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. (Ps. 36:10-11). 

I pray the LORD will be with you and bless you, as you seek and submit your life to God; this is our only way through the days ahead.
