All we can do is wait, watch & pray!
Wait upon our redemption, watch His wonders to perform and His plans are being fulfilled, and pray that the full compliment of sinners who will become saints will hold on till the very end.
Indeed, we are living in perilous times!
Whether we await upon new birth or wait upon death to claim it’s own, it’s made more than apparent how we need our creator God.
For all of man’s accomplishments, we will always stand in need of God! And when we recognize our need, let turn ourselves wholly unto HIM!

How are you all waiting on the Lord? What is He speaking to any of you? I am still deep in the throws of a death watch for Mom. Still wanting to believe that our time ever grows shorter! May His blessings attend each of you during the day, and may the night find us all resting in His everlasting arms!

Bless you, TR. How kind of you to bless us at this most difficult time for you.
After a 7 month vigil with my Mom, I didn’t think I could survive the heartbreak. I didn’t really want to. But knowing she was with Jesus, experiencing His Love face to face, got me through the long time of grieving. I love her and still miss her terribly, but my love for her can’t hold a candle to what she now knows with Jesus. I can still feel her hand in mine as we prayed together…
I’m personally not sensing anything different about the time of the Rapture. I think it will be soon, and sometimes I get worried that it won’t. But I’ve felt like this for months, and am a little surprised we’re still here. The only thing I can be sure the Lord is speaking to me is to practice more patience, love and forgiveness, and to trust Him. Come to think of it, those were the same things my Mom was teaching me.
I still believe our time here, walking through the valley, is short, and soon we will be dwelling in the house of the Lord forever.

I wouldn’t call it a revelation, but what I see on all fronts is distraction. Most of the American news we’re getting is centered upon what the American press thinks of itself. There have to be other things going on in the world, and you really must do some digging to piece things together.
My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord;
my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God. Psalm 84:2February 21, 2017 at 10:08 am #128633
Though we are still into the night watch, first light is fast approaching.

My step daughter’s mother has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. it is very aggressive, has already gotten into bone, so the way things are going, its a possibility she will not be alive at Easter. she has accepted Jesus though.
TR, my heart goes out to you in this time of death watch. I hate the destruction that the fall brought.
Our blessed hope is for the dead in Christ to rise first, and then we who are alive and remain will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Our Lord is going to descend from heaven with a shout, TR, the archangel’s voice will be heard, with the trump of God, and great joy will be restored to your mom, and to all who have trusted in Jesus.
God has a reason for His timing, so hang in there and trust His judgement.
Praying for your mother for good symptom relief and that she be cared for tenderly.
Flowers for your mother
Judah, you are he whom your brothers shall praise: your hand shall be in the neck of your enemies; your father's children shall bow down before you. Judah is a lion's whelp: from the prey, my son, you are gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion, and as an old lion; who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come; and to him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen 49

Thanks one and all. Hospice care was accomplished primarily by my brother and sister. My mom has passed on now and was in no pain during the vigil. Indeed, we struggle to come into this life, and struggle to enter into new life. I pray that she received His full love before her departure.
But we who wait upon the Lord, shall not be ashamed. God will certainly honour those who have honoured Him! Who can know the glories that await each of us?! Our milk is our hope, and our meat are His promises.
Let our milk and meat then give us every assurance that He is faithful and true, and that being hidden in His heart is better than riches.
As we await His calling, we can only glory in the love that He has bestowed upon each of us. We are His beloved, and He is ours!
