WAKE UP WORLD

The Christian faith is one of many.
However, which other religion gives instruction and information about the end of the world????
And a Savour, Jesus Christ who redeems us!

We call the Bible the Word Of God.
And surely, if God created the world, then He knows what He's talking about!

The New Testament of that Word, teaches about the End Times.

I believe everything we are looking at happening today, points to end times.
Because of this, our Heart and Faith must be right with God!

How Many Wars have we see in the last century??
More then in the previous six thousand years!
How many Natural Disasters have happened in just the last year???

Let me refresh your memory. 

Extra Heavy snow falls in U.S, Great Britain and Europe.


Then Queensland Australia hit by Cyclone Yasi and 2/3rds of this HUGE state,
(2 times the size of Texas and 6 times the size of Britain) was flooded!

Queensland darkened area.
Some northern parts are still under water!



Next, New Zealand suffered a massive Earthquake.


Now Japan has been hit by a Tsunami!

How terrifying! and what's next??

Are you prepared?

Do you know the Creator God?

Have you read His Word to have a personal relationship with Him?

Starting at the New Testament is the beginning.
(I amend this to say, "A good place to begin.")

This is what is said about these times.

In Matthew Chapter 24 Verse7.

"For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
(How many wars have you seen in the last century.)

And there will be famines, pestilences,
(Everywhere) 

and Earthquakes (Tsunami's) in various places.
All these are the beginning of sorrows."

(Before the end comes).

  1. Sorrows indeed..there are great sorrows in a great many places at the moment..disregarding the normal stresses of life..knowing Jesus is the only comfort and hiding place in this day in which we live!

  3. Hi Crystal Mary,

    The birth panes are becoming closer together and increasing in strength, just like a women getting ready to give birth. Really, Christians need to wake up and be spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    Blessings sister,

  4. I, too , have been following the patterns and have reached the same conclusion. " no man knows the time of His coming", but watch for the signs. They appear to be hitting most countries in some form or another. The warnings are going out for food shortages (famine), and how soon will the pestilence hit?

  7. For the most part, I think the world is divided into two camps - those of us who know, and those who PRETEND they don't know.

  8. Carol, Well said. x

    Pritibha, Thank your wise comment.

    Joy, Yes Christians do indeed need to do more.

    Clint, Bless you.

    Ian, If everyone knew the exact date it would be a concern. We need to live as if it was today. We get much pestulance here in Oz. We have some terrible plagues. I think the last was mice?

    Sandie, dear heart. You are fine.

    Mary, I agree.

    Gorges, Well said. LOL

  9. Hi Crytal Mary -

    Thank you for sharing this powerful truth from the Word of GOD.

    GOD is not mocked...Galatians 6:7 - KJV

    We need to live of the gospel of God and teach and preach it, according to the will of our Lord.

    Mark 16:20 - KJV
    And they went forth, and preached every where, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.

  11. Dear Crystal Lindsey,

    I understand clearly the point you are trying to make here. But I also think is is EXTREMELY important to state facts not presumptions.

    Therefore, as God teaches us to question what others may teach and preach about the Gospel and that we know the once true source we can rely on is God's Word, I would like to question some of your statements.

    You say:

    "How Many Wars have we see in the last century??
    More then in the previous six thousand years!"

    Is this fact? You are stating from 1911 to 2011, there have been more wars than the previous 6000 years. If so, could you please provide me with the source of your information.

    You say:

    "Starting at the New Testament is the beginning."

    If you feel this to be true, the New Testament is the beginning, then I would like to ask you 'why?' do you suppose God has given us the Old Testament as well as the New Testament.

    You say:

    "and Earthquakes (Tsunami's) in various places."

    I noticed that you 'added' to God's Word, by inserting the word Tsunami. Please know that the word Tsunami does not equal Earthquake. I have searched the Bible, God's Word for the word Tsunami, and find no mention of it. We must be very careful NOT to add to God's Word.

    A tsunami as defined in the Heinemann Australian Student Dictionary is: a large wave or series of waves caused by an earthquake, volcano or landslide under the sea.

    Please note: CAUSED BY, an earthquake. God does not say in His Word, there will be earthquakes and tsunami's.

    Although 'Tsunami' is part of today's vocabulary the origin of the word comes from the Japanese. tsu (harbour) + nami (wave). A tsunami is often barely noticeable in the open ocean, but becomes higher and powerfully destructive as it reaches shallower water. The word is thought to have originated with fishermen returning to devasted ports. Because of its resemblance to a huge incoming tide, a tsunami is sometimes incorrectly called a tidal wave, but in fact it has nothing to do with ties.

    Information Source: Heinemann Australian Student Dictionary.

    You say:

    "We get much pestulance here in Oz. We have some terrible plagues. I think the last was mice?"

    The above statement you made in the comments also has me asking questions.

    You see, I live in Queensland, Australia. To the best of my knowledge we have not had 'plagues' on any kind of large proportion and certainly not mice? If we have had "some terrible plagues" could you please provide me with the source for your information. I would be interested in knowing this information.

    I would also like to point out, 'pestilence' is not the same as 'plague'.

    Pestilence is any deadly epidemic disease. Not plague. In Matt 24 and in Luke, God say's pestilence NOT plague.

    Therefore, any deadly epidemic disease, is just that - disease. Epidemic means in one area affecting many for a short time. Not a world wide pandemic.

    Thank you Crystal Lindsey for considering my questions. As a child of God we must always stick to 'facts' and 'truth'.

    In His Love,
    Kerrie

    2 Timothy 3:16

    I am always learning and more than happy for you to correct me. Thank you!

  12. Hello Kerry,
    Facts and truth, I believe it is.

    Many people,are not aware and need to be...
    This is serious. AND, it is Bible prophesy.


    OKay more wars in the last one hundred years!
    What I am saying here, and what others will understand is,
    Give me another one hundred year period with as many wars, as this last one hundred year period.

    Starting at the New Testament as the Beginning....
    To explain this in child-like understanding..
    Many people have not ever, or cannot understand God's Word..
    For some, it is difficult. So, if they find it too hard...then by starting at the New Testament to begin with, they will likely find this much easier to comprehend.

    ADDING to Gods Word....
    An Earthquake under the ocean, will trigger a Tsunami...It is the result of an earthquake!!!!
    SOOOOOO I added Tsunami for understanding...As you will note, I placed this word in brackets,(.) to show it was an added word...

    Pestilance, this word I did take as plaque in my own mind and may have been in error with that. (Rats caused bubonic, did they not)?
    However...I was thinking of the Mice plague in many area's of country NSW 2004.In the same year there was also a grasshopper plaque.My sister lives on the land and this was a shocking threat to them!
    As far as epidemic diseases, we are blessed in Australia, however, Cholera is one such disease which comes to mind...

    Lastly...I am a Christian believer wanting to encourage others into believing on the Lord Jesus Christ. Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
    I am not here to hurt, harm or argue..
    As Christians we stand together, not divided.

    "May the Lord Bless thee and keep thee, and may the Lord let His light shine upon thee and be gracious unto thee..."
    Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.

  13. It's nothing to worry about...it is something to get excited about. Think about it...Jesus is coming. Are you ready????

  14. I am with you on this and I understand perfectly well what you mean by "earthquake(tsunami) in various places"

    And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring; (Luke 21:25)

    This verse like, so many does sums up what we are seeing today. There are other things happening that other people are taking notice of and it is about those earthquakes.

    I invite you back over to my blog to read something related to your post at http://CertaintyOfDrawings.BlogSpot.com

    Blessings,
    Paul

  15. Hello Stan, Yes, it sure is something to get excited about.

    Hi Paul, Your artwork comes from your heart where God resides. Your post does relate to mine. And hopefully many will come to know the Savour through our sharing.
    Jesus said, "Go tell."
    It's good to serve.

  16. Hi, Crystal. Yes it is time to wake up! I live just a little over 10km from a nuclear power station and having seen videos of what happened to the power stations in japan and how far the exclusion zone has been extended makes me think what I would do should a (Tsunami) caused by an Earthquake strike our coast. Facts are facts, things have become very scary lately no matter which way you look at it. Your post has been very much in line with my thoughts and even though I don't have the answers I still wonder "What's going on?" Love Geoff.

  17. Hello Crystal Mary,

    I would like to thank you for taking the time to clarify my questions in a loving and caring way.

    I was especially excited that you explained this in child-like understanding. For that alone gave me great hope and encouragement!

    Jesus says,“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven."-Matthew 18:3 ESV

    I am very child-like in many ways. Yippee-ee!

    Thank you once again.

    I also love Stan's comment!!! Come Jesus, come.

    May Jesus bless you! In His Love, Kerrie

  18. Hello Kerri,
    You love Our Lord and are fiercely protective of Him, and that is how it should be!! Big Hug!
    I am also very very child-like..Perhaps thats why I try to keep everything I write on here, very simple.
    God loves you so much my sister..
    Wish you lived closer? to share personally.
    Blessings your way. Crystal Mary xx

  19. This is a very good evangelical message. I agree with Stan, that if we are ready for Jesus to come we have nothing to worry about. However, I tend to worry about all those lost souls out there in the world and also in my family that are not saved yet. God bless, Lloyd

  20. I believe there is a very good chance we are nearing the end. Jesus could come at any time. Even if His return is many years away, we never know what day He will come for us individually. So let’s be ready and tell as many people as we can about Jesus.
    Blessings,
    Ken
