They’re coming down in showers,
The leaves all gold and red;
They’re covering the little flowers,
And tucking them in bed
They’ve spread a fairy carpet
All up and down the street;
And when we skip along to school,
they rustle ‘neath our feet
“…when Autumn leaves begin to fall…” *sigh*
It’s no secret that I love Fall more than any of the other seasons of the year. I love the sights, sounds and smells of Fall, especially those from days gone by: the trees beginning to drop their summer foliage, leaf by leaf, as they ready themselves for the onslaught of ferocious Winter; the crackling of burning leaves as neighbors begin piling them into the gutters, and lighting them afire; the chimneys wafting luscious smelling smoke from their burning logs into the cool Fall air; the steaming cups of hot Apple Cider, the sight of delicious caramel apples, with the promise of even more good food to follow as Thanksgiving draws near. Ah Fall! No other season can match you for sheer emotional comfort!

I don’t know if any of you believe that we are now approaching a time when Christianity will not be apparent anywhere in the world as it is now, because all Christians alive at that time will be with the Lord. He removes us. And, that, after that, ‘chaos’ will reign until the New World Leader finally ends up in control of the entire world. He will seem benign, and charismatic and helpful, but he will kill all who defy him. To me, however, it’s becoming very apparent that we must be living in that time just prior to the one spoken about in the Holy Bible, both in the book of Daniel and Revelation, that is referred to as “The End of Days”, or “The Great and Terrible Day of the LORD”. That awful period of time will last for 7 years, though, not just for one day.
According to the book in the Holy Bible entitled, “The Revelation of Jesus Christ”, at the end of that 7 years the Lord Jesus will return to face off against anti-Christ and his minions in “The Valley of Decision”–Armageddon. And, Jesus does not lose that one, just as He didn’t lose the battle at Calvary. He rose from the dead, and that spelled the total end of satan’s chance to win out over God Almighty. Satan and his followers didn’t know that, though:
” But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, even the hidden wisdom, which God ordained before the world unto our glory:
8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.” [1 Corinthians 2:7.8 KJV]
“Which NONE of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would NOT have crucified the Lord of glory.”[1 Corinthians 2:8 KJV][Emphasis added, mine]
The title of the last video I’ve placed in here contains the very true words, “…A Shaking To SAVE the wicked…” That’s because this is still the age of Grace, of God drawing mankind to faith in His Son, Jesus, for their salvation, not a time during which God pours out His justifiable Wrath on the heads of the completely unrepentant wicked. Right now, He wishes to SAVE them, save their souls, not annihilate them! Those who claim He is judging the wicked right now, and trying to punish them in order to kill them off, are all WRONG. Right now, it’s still “The Day of Salvation”, through our placing our FAITH in Jesus, as our Lord and Savior–not the horrible, “Great and Terrible Day of the LORD”! We are never to pray for that horrible day to come, according to God’s word–we are to pray for one another, for the lost souls in this world, and for peace in Jerusalem–never for the arrival of the Day of God’s Wrath. That, His word tells us, is a day that contains no joy:
” And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?
12 Therefore also now, saith the Lord, turn ye even to me with all your heart, and with fasting, and with weeping, and with mourning:
13 And rend your heart, and not your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for he is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness, and repenteth him of the evil.” [Joel 2:11-13 KJV]
“…for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?”[Joel 2:11 KJV][emphasis, mine]
“…rend your heart, and NOT your garments, and turn unto the Lord your God: for He is gracious and merciful, slow to anger, and of great kindness…”[Joel 2:13 KJV][emphasis, mine]
I actually wish I had lots more to say on all of this, but I think I want to let those videos, including the beautiful musical ones, speak for themselves for now. I’ll just move on and submit this for publication.
