Countdown to the closure of the age: On Your Marks, Set,…Go!

“On your marks.., set.., go!  This is the ‘go time’”.
 Sis Doris Bura (from Maiduguri, Nigeria) heard the voice from the Lord during her prayer time in the night; and she had the understanding that the “go time” is indicative of the Rapture of the Church.  A long-time supporter of CA!, Sis Doris called in to share this message with us, and the Body of Christ,  on Saturday 13th December..  She also requested for prayers for her home village which was overran by the Boko Haram insurgents around that time.
        The corollary to a message such as this, of course  -  from Rev 12:12, is that we all should brace up for the devil’s worst antics, wraths, and persecutions.  We can however be encouraged by the same encouragement Pastor Adeboye of the RCCG claimed he received when he heard someone summarize the entire Book of Revelations in the words, “At last, we win”.  No matter what the Devil tries, our victory is guaranteed, and the consummation of all things is at hand.  Rather than panic or continue whimpering, the Bible encourages us to rejoice that we are part of the anchor for the last lap on the Kingdom’s relay team . (Mat 13:16-17). Shalom.

Rom 13: 11  And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.
12  The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13  Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14  But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
