Many of you are aware of the plan that the wicked leaders on this earth have in store for all of us. The news of government control and the loss of our freedom is discouraging and reduces our level of hope. Continuing to be absorbed with this bad news is exhausting, and creates overwhelming anxiety.
However, because of this information, we are AWAKE and ready for the command to do our part. We know evil is making a run right now, and MANY, MANY of us are patiently waiting to be a part of the solution, yet, have no idea what our next move should be. It is for YOU that I have written this post.
I’ve heard many times that the “Deep State”, (or whichever evil empire you choose to label them as), has a plan. And that this plan has been in the making for hundreds of years.
But, hearing this statement, I quickly realize that “God has a Plan” for these exact days. And, this plan has been foretold for THOUSANDS of years. We are not lost in this random chaos that has come upon all of us.
I invite you to take the first step in dealing with your worry and anxiety regarding these end times. A step that places you back in control of your emotional state. This step is simple:
Shift your focus from the “Deep State’s,” plan to “Gods” plan!
Are you ready? Then let’s begin.
God loves all of us!
God knows what you are experiencing.
God cares about your “suffering”.
God has seen this entire last-day event in its entirety.
God and His people WIN in the end.
“And the LAMB shall overcome them.” Revelation 17:14
We will be rewarded with Peace and Rest for eternity
“Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.” Matthew 5:5
If you are like me, you hate to see evil people win. I am greatly upset when time after time, bad people get away with all kinds of crimes and dishonesty. They preach that they will control the earth… but… wait! God’s plan has the ending quite different than what they believe. They might believe that they can get away with something because they will rule the earth, but reality will be of great disappointment to them.
The MEEK shall inherit the earth, the meek!! Not the evil rulers, or even the vocal dominant people pushing their evil agenda… It will be you and me… the MEEK that will be rid of this evil scum on earth. “See ya! Wear lots of sunscreen!” (Forgive me, I had an un-Christlike moment).
This one concept gives me so much peace. I know that this message from God is true. So, when I see things right now as “UNFAIR”, I remember this promise from God. And, the icing on the cake is that we will not even have these evil people around us in the thousand years to come. Whew!!! Can I get an “AMEN!!?!!”
So, how are you feeling now? Can you feel the light getting brighter in your emotional management of this troubling time? Great!! Let’s continue.
I mentioned that God cares about your suffering. It is as if our earth neighborhood has been overrun by bad people who want us to suffer even unto death. I see God as a Heavenly Father… The best Dad ever if you will. And as a “parent” of my children who are in danger, I would want to rescue them from the hands of evil.
Let’s review another step in God’s plan that relates to this. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we which are alive and remain shall 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.
This is not referring to the second coming, where God defeats evil through the battle of Armageddon. This is an event that precedes that period of time. The righteous people who have died will be called from the grave to be caught up with the Lord. And in verse 17, the righteous will be caught up and removed from the earth prior to the destruction of the evil.
Verse 18 is not one to skip over, for it is the purpose of my post:
18 Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
Do these words speak comfort to you? They do to me.
There is additional scripture that speaks to the “quickening” that I would like to share with you: D&C 88: 95-99
95 And there shall be silence in heaven for the space of half an hour; and immediately after shall the curtain of heaven be unfolded, as a scroll is unfolded after it is rolled up, and the face of the Lord shall be unveiled;
96 And the saints that are upon the earth, who are alive, shall be quickened and be caught up to meet him.
97 And they who have slept in their graves shall come forth, for their graves shall be opened; and they also shall be caught up to meet him in the midst of the pillar of heaven—
98 They are Christ’s, the first fruits, they who shall descend with him first, and they who are on the earth and in their graves, who are first caught up to meet him; and all this by the voice of the sounding of the trump of the angel of God.
These scriptures demonstrate to me the first coming of the Savior, not associated with the Second Coming, that the world will witness all at the same time. It is a time of rescue from God, protecting us from the worst of things to come.
We have to remember, God’s fight and foretold destruction is not with us, it is with Satan and evil. A true battle showdown between good and evil. God, our Father, has planned this in stages. Although there are good innocent people who might get caught in the middle of this fight, the God that I know would have a plan to protect His children, sheltering them from the dangers of this battle. A plan of a remarkable miracle as witnessed by the Israelites as the Red Sea parted allowing their escape.
For all of those times that we have prayed after suffering from the consequences of sin… that were a result of someone else’s sinful actions, He too has had enough of evil tormenting His children. His coming is an answer to those prayers that we have offered. It is time that we grow and nurture one another in a different environment of goodness, love, peace, and fairness.
This is God’s plan for the righteous. WE DO NOT HAVE TO BE PERFECT to be considered as His faithful followers. But if you worry about the sins that you have committed in your life, it’s time to taste the refreshing nectar of the fruit of repentance. He can take the burden away from you TODAY! There is sweet peace there… I speak as one who has been saved by the healing power of the atonement many times.
My message today is to shift your focus to the plan that God has. Pray for more understanding about this. Study, read, and then listen to the whisperings of the Holy Ghost. There is power in a plan, (all of my anxiety followers know this). God’s plan is your plan. Trust Him, get close to Him, and He will shoulder you through to the peace that He has planned for us.
God is in control. He is so aware of YOU and ME! Return that blessing by having faith and trust in Him!
