    Wow, he completely captured the things I've been thinking, feeling, and observing. I couldn't have said it better myself.

    Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King!!

    In the meantime (and I pray it's a short meantime) Father, the cry of my heart is to glorify You every day in every way.

      I never miss anything Jim writes, I love it all.
      I think we all feel the way he does. I can't wait to see the Lord Jesus place Jim's crown upon his head.

      I think it is so amazing that when the world is so dark, The Lord loves, and "feeds" His sheep through His Word, and through encouraging, beautiful words from our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.

      Though the world is experiencing disasters of all kinds, wars and rumors of wars, ect... We can rest in Him. We need have no fear because there is no darkness in Him at all. All of these things that are happening give us hope because we know our redemption is drawing nigh!!!!!

      So, look up brothers and sisters, hold up your heads! Praise God and be full of joy
      I stand with Israel, now and forever.
      Pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

          It's getting darker because the sun is setting on this age. I have a painting of a sunset in my home and every time I look at it, I'm reminded of that fact. Cold and dark....that does describe the world as it feels to us, doesn't it? I can't wait to leave and I love fellowshipping here with others who feel the same way.

            AWESOME article! Thanks for posting! Very thoughtful and contemplative and as stated above, certainly captures many of my sentiments as it does many Christian folk here too.

            While I was reading I copied the following to my clipboard to discover others noted it too:

            Something very strange entered our world only a few years ago, I believe that. One could almost feel a cold wind suddenly sweep through. Everyone recognizes it.
            Interesting statement. Even a lot of non-Christian folk perceive it, only they don't know Jesus. We do and I hope the sense of the closeness of the hour we have arrived at is right. Lots of indicators suggest so.

            Great commentary all-round.

              Sorry for my ignorance but what is the cold wind that swept in a few years ago? BTW this was a wonderful article written by Jim and I enjoy reading the Israel Watch on here weakly. I can identify with that 35 year old he wrote about on there. I am just that age and tired of this world. The more I understand the end times I realize why I become more cynical about other people. At first I thought it was part of getting older but believe it is the times we are in. It is sad seeing my coworkers everyday who believe something is going to happen yet they have no use for hearing the good news about Jesus Christ. They need him more than ever now.
              Mark 13:31 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
              Coming again coming again maybe morning maybe noon maybe evening and maybe soon!
              Coming again coming again O what a wonderful day it will be! Jesus is coming again!

                Also from Jim's article:

                In Matthew 24:13, Jesus said: “But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

                We are going to glory, and I believe it is sooner rather than later. We simply must endure. Thank goodness Jesus left us His Word and the Holy Spirit for comfort.
                This article was so powerful. It was profound, touching, sad, uplifting, comforting and reassuring all at once. Somehow his article also seems to make the Rapture seem even closer than it did before. Hallelujah! I, too, am so, so, so looking forward to going home.

                It's likely many of us can really identify with that famous "Hang in there!" picture of the kitty hanging by its front paws on a branch. We may be down to our last two claws, but it would appear that we won't have to hang on much longer!

                I believe Jim would also approve of posting this very reassuring verse:

                2 Corinthians 4:17 For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.

                Thank you, Mary Rae, for your lovely picture!

                "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Matthew 6:19-21

                  Wow, what an accurate article about how I've been feeling. I don't post much here, but that article and comments by you all are why I come and read at this site every day; to keep me going knowing I'm not alone in my beliefs and struggles. A boost I needed this morning. Thank you.

                    A sad but refreshing reminder of the world we live in today and the hope we live for...

                    I emailed Jim to thank him for that message.
                    The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me....

                        Jim's article spoke to me as well. I feel the same way. Thanks Jim for sharing.

                          awesome awesome awesome. as we draw closer and closer the enemy and his demon minions are combating us more and more. truly what an honor and privilege to be deemed worthy to be born during this time and then chosen to be vessels of righteousness. i do have to admit i struggle so much, lately with doubts and unbelief and it kills me but jesus is stronger. he grabs hold of the hearts of men[and woman! ].

                          Jeremiah 31:33 - "For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, declares the Lord: I will put my law within them, and I will write it on their hearts. And I will be their God, and they shall be my people."

                          even with all the tension in this world and all the voices shouting for our attention and the doubts from the enemy and even from the deep dark recesses of my heart His word truly makes me want to weep and show adoration. for he truly is with us.

                          Father forgive us of our shortcomings, purge us of all things that hinder our relationship with you. let every circumstance draw us closer to you. lord let your grace wash over us and let us be bold and courageous. help us be the light to all men, to everyone you put in our path. and lord please let us here your voice while tuning out the distractions of this day and age. thank you for your grace and your mercy and your love... thank you for your son. thank you for the call. in jesus name, amen.

                              I could have written that letter myself. How much longer Lord?

                                I can't speak for Jim, but I think the cold wind that swept in a few years ago was the election of Obama. It represented a sea change in america that this man could get elected. He attended a church that preached hate for years, is sympathetic to muslims and their hatred of Israel, and is a socialist. Look at any socialist country and see how they treat christians. Instead of being a uniter , the country is more divided than ever as he tries to force his big government socialism on the country. He is betraying our alliance with Israel daily and the many blessing our country has received from our love of Israel is being removed. I agree with Jim, I don't know how people with out faith can get up each morning and see what is happening. Jesus said that when we see all these things begin to happen, to look up, for our redemption draws near. When I find myself falling into depression, just like Jim I remember to look up, and realize that we are so lucky to be this generation. As it is said, it is darkest right before the dawn. The morning star will soon rise.
