This Land Is Your Land?

“There’s a way that seems right to man, to man.  There is only one who can save this land.”

What will become of this great land? Only one really knows. We can all sit around and theorize what will  become of the USA after the election is over, but honestly, no one really knows.

It reminds me of all the times folks said the world was coming to an end. One by one those appointed days passed, and now look at what we’re facing – an election unlike any election I have ever experienced in my little life. I dare say in yours either.

I am reminded of the verse from God’s Holy Word that speaks about knowing the day and the hour. As I write this, I just flipped open my Bible and wouldn’t you know – I landed on the very page and passage I was looking for. I laughed out loud because that is just like God to show me without me having to research where it’s at. Obviously He wants me to share this with you.

Matthew 24:36- 44 says, “No one knows the day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.  Two men will be in the field; one will be taken, the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day the Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him.”

Just prior to this passage spoken by Jesus, He tells us what else to look for. In Matthew 24:4-9,  He also says this:

” Watch out that no one deceives you. For many will come calling in my name claiming, “I am the Christ”, and will deceive many. You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

As we face this upcoming election it is vitally important you keep watch.

For more on what Jesus said, check out the rest of Matthew 24.

Folks, if all the other prophecies were fulfilled as outlined in the Bible, I have no doubt what Jesus said will take place as well.

What are you doing to prepare? How are you growing in your relationship with the Lord? Are you keeping watch?

Pray for this land because while men and women think they know what’s best, there is only one who really knows.

Until next time stay faithful in prayer,
