DON’T TAKE FOR GRANTED WHAT YOU NOW HAVE

(A message on Thanksgiving Day four years ago.)
18 In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.1 Thessalonians 5:18 19 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. 15 See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise, 16 redeeming the time, because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is. Ephesians 5
“Many of you will be with friends and family celebrating Thanksgiving, remember what you are to be thankful for. For as the dark days approach, and the winds blow across this nation, you will look back upon the times that you had.
For truly, the greatest things to be thankful for, are friends and family. For indeed, difficult days are ahead. They will be like nothing that has happened before, nor will they be like this ever again.
Live as wise, and not unwise. Remain tuned-in to my spirit. For you will need to know my voice more and more as the days approach. For every day is a gift. Every day brings you closer to the end of all things. The world as you know it, is in turmoil. Evil has reached a height where it has no regard for human life. The innocence of many fall prey to the devices of these things.
Many around the world wander in search for the basic necessities of life. Do not take for granted for what you now have. For much of what you now have could be taken away from you. While it is wise to plan for the future, do not lay up treasures for yourselves that could easily rot or rust. For these things do not last; they drift away and soon, are gone. But instead, seek those things that are above. For those things are everlasting.
Do not fear the world’s calamity. But instead, look to me as the one who will see you through these days. For the world’s players are maneuvering. They are like chessmen on a board. In the end, just a few players will be left. For when the queen is taken, then much of the power is left for the weaker ones.
For on that day when the seas are breached. The day will be dark and gloomy, and the attack will come in the middle of the night. I will not leave you alone without a warning. And the battle will wage on for a long time. The eagle will fall on that day. But out of the dust and the ashes, a new people will emerge. And then those men of old will emerge—those called for a time like that.
And many will come to know me on that day, and those held in captivity will be freed. Even in the darkness, the light will be seen from above. Many signs and wonders will be wrought through the enemy. But upon those called upon as my servants in that hour, the serpents will be held under their feet. Across the land the darkness will rise and separate, and the rays of my light will be seen from above.
In spite of the turmoil and the great changes that have taken place, the evil one will be held in check. For he knows that his time is short. And then the focus will be taken upon the holy land and great hordes will come upon it.
But these days are still a ways off. So, enjoy your time with family and friends, but live as wise men and women.”
