We’re entering a new possibly final decade
Now we are on the cusp of entering a new possibly final decade and I find myself stunned. Yes, I knew my wife could go home any time. But, I was not ready for the reality. However, the Lord graciously gave me three days while Pat was sedated into unconsciousness to process a lot of the raw grief. So, I’m doing almost as well as I had hoped I would. Really.
But, to say my plans for the new year have radically changed is a massive understatement. It is true that Jesus has had me thinking about these things increasingly for several months. It is also true that Pat made sure she had done what she could to get the house ready before she left. But the emptiness is huge. She is the love of my life, outside of Jesus. We have been one for over four decades. And we knew how rapidly the end of the Gentile Age is approaching.
I realize the Lord often takes much longer than I expect. But, the end of the age comes soon. The word we have been given is directly from Jesus.
So in like manner, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near. “Truly, I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all these things are fulfilled. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will not pass away.
Therefore watch always and pray that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will happen and to stand before the Son of Man. Luke 21:31-33, 36 MEV
Entering a new possibly final decade is a serious task
This is serious life and death stuff. Going up in the rapture is optional. If you are watching and waiting, and found worthy, you go. If you don’t believe in all that stuff, you get to go through the final seven years. I wouldn’t wish that on an enemy. The earth will go through changes which will rival what happened at the Flood. Jerusalem ends up sitting on top of the tallest mountain in the world. And that’s the least of it. Here are some links to some David Reagan videos about the end.
If you haven’t turned to Jesus, repented, and offered yourself as a living sacrifice, the time to do that is now. Because when the call up into the clouds comes, you will not have time to do it then. It will be too late. He will welcome you. Jesus loves you—more than you can ever imagine. Turn to Him before it’s too late.
David, I’m wondering if you ever got a copy of my little book with Patricia’s beautiful painting on the cover. If not, I want you to have one and will send it to you. I’m surprised at how much I miss our interaction and the brief friendship we 3 had. Our book is selling, God is putting it into the right hands, and I’m so grateful to you and your amazing wife. I love thinking of her in Heaven with Jesus with our girls – happy, healthy and grateful – as we will all be soon!
Yes, I have the copy you sent Pat. I treasure it because Pat was so pleased to see her art in print. I also enjoyed our brief interaction and consider you a friend. Ready for your next book.
I am very pleased your book is selling.
I’m working on the second book in my spirit-filled fantasy series. My prayer is that the Lord will anoint it, and it will be fruitful.
See you when we get there. Maranatha!
