I’m reminded this morning of September 2015. I woke to hearing the congregation in my grandmother’s church singing. Their sweet voices singing this beautiful song that they sang when I was a little girl sitting on the pew with my Bigma, waiting to eat the chicken pot pie in the picnic basket. We would get in Grandaddy’s old blue truck and he would gently place the picnic basket in the back.
When I first started hearing the singing, I wasn’t sure what they were singing but I knew I remembered that tune. Then I heard, ‘Count the milestones one by one, Jesus will forsake you never, it is better farther on’.
Why would I hear that song at that time was my question. I soon found out the milestones leading up to us going home were quickly passing by. Notable signs to getting us there – just flying by as we watch.
I looked up the definition of milestones –
- a stone set up beside a road to mark the distance in miles to a particular place.
- an action or event marking a significant change or stage in development.
New York’s approval of aborting a baby at full term if it means trouble for the mother if the baby is born made no sense whatsoever. Oh they explained it in terms to make their decision to protect women viable in anyone’s eyes that are closed. Mine are open, and so is my heart. This is not right in any form you put it. You can’t make a word that justifies this. You can’t explain it away.
So this milestone in our country’s history is one that draws attention to the fact that we are in the times when the Christian has to stop and know that Jesus will forsake us never and it is better farther on.
I woke the morning of the blood moon and knew there were two standing by my bed. I don’t know if they were angels or what but one said ‘we are waiting for her to choose Jesus’. I didn’t understand that so I prayed about it and got the answer while working at my desk a couple days ago. It shocked me when I realized that I will soon be brought before governors and kings for Jesus’ sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
But take no thought how or what thing ye shall answer, or what ye shall say. For the Holy Ghost shall teach you in the same hour what ye ought to say.
This grandmother that I sat beside in church is the same one that talked to me when I would stand behind her and comb her long gray hair. She gave me a warning. She said ‘one day they are going to try to put a mark on you, don’t take it, don’t let them do that’.
So stand bold saints. This is not our home. We have an eternal home bright and fair, and our rooms have been prepared. God bless and keep the faith. Hold on to what you know, and not what you feel. Stand firm on His Word. Know it in your hearts. And pray one for another.
There’s another scripture that tells us to go inside and shut thy doors until this indignation pass. These are things coming to me this week. It is time. Cover your doors, cover yourselves and your families. It is time.
