Woe to the Inhabitants of the Earth

I am not God, don't want to be God, really do not understand God. I would like to think I know God, but there are times like these, in which we live, that causes me to question this entity that I have given the reins of my life to and have put my trust in. It's hard to look out into the pastures and see nothing but hungry cows, dry ground and smoke on the horizon while our neighbors to the east are flooding and losing their crops and livelihood. How easy it would be for God to just spread the rain around and give relief to both miseries. But I know that God is not as interested in my personal comfort as He is in the lost souls of those who are straddling the fence. I believe He is doing His level best to get the attention of stiff necked people who know the times we live in are a precursor to what is coming. The most chilling verses in the Bible are to those who have refused their right to become the children of God. Revelation 20:12 "And I saw the dead, small and great standing before God and the books were opened. And another book was opened, which is the Book of Life. And the dead were judged according to their works, by the things which were written in the books. The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered up the dead who were in them. And they were judged, each one according to his works. Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death. And anyone not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the lake of fire." I long for the day when the Lord takes His people from this chaotic world and rules and reigns with perfect peace and justice. But times have to get hard to prepare us to want to leave. Who wants to leave a ranch with grass up to a horses belly, dirt tanks full of water and fat cattle grazing? The uglier things get, the sooner I want to trade residences. And this is a tea party to what Holy Scriptures says is coming. One only has to watch the news for a brief moment to see record highs in every facet of life.....record flooding, record drought, record tornadoes, record earthquakes, world-wide financial collapse....all recorded in scripture. 2 Timothy 3:1-3 "But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God....." describes this generation to a tee. But....." As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name." Get ready people...Jesus is coming and He's coming soon...Till next time, adios.

Preach on sister! It is crazy, this world that we live in, and getting crazier by the day. None of it catches the Lord by surprise and His promises will stand, to never leave us nor forsake us..amen.

Yep, all this comes to mind when we see what this world is coming to.
Agree with Ranch Wife, He's got this world in His hands.
