How Long?

Last night while driving home from work, I was pondering the things that I've been looking into...things like "transhumanism", and "channeling", and the new age infiltration into "the churches", and the violence and rampant deception, and the thought "How long, Lord? How long is this going to continue until your return?"
... and then the answer that the Bible gives came to mind:

" and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled." Rev. 6:11

I think that time will be coming soon...praying for the strength and perseverance of  the saints, and praying for the grace and blessing and honor to be counted among that number...

Mat 20:20  Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him.
Mat 20:21  And he said unto her, What wilt thou? She saith unto him, Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.
Mat 20:22  But Jesus answered and said,

 Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with? 

They say unto him, 

We are able. 

Mat 20:23  And he saith unto them, Ye shall drink indeed of my cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with: but to sit on my right hand, and on my left, is not mine to give, but it shall be given to them for whom it is prepared of my Father.

Come quickly Lord Jesus!


  1. Amen:) The Lord will bring us through whatever, if we die or live it is unto Him!

    1. So true Ma. Sometimes I think "I just can't make it, I just can't....." and then my strength gets renewed. I am not able but He IS able to perform all that He said He will. :)

  2. Jill and I attended a funeral service this morning for a friend who died just days before his 15th birthday. Hearing the words of his family and friends, I appreciated as never before how truly broken the world is, and how desperately it needs to be redeemed by Christ. The world is groaning. And only one thing can fix it - Jesus.

    1. Hi Leslie,

      This world truly is broken, and I guess I've been guilty of thinking about this in "metaphorical terms", in other words, not as reality but more along the lines of an interesting story. But the reality is the "myth" is reality. The "Bible Story" is factual, all of it, and it is sometimes a hard pill to swallow. But the silver lining on that dark cloud is Jesus' love for us, and His promise to heal what is broken, and that He will never forsake us. We might forsake Him, take Him for granted, a thousand times a day, but what a comfort that He will NEVER forsake us. :)
