As I was in the process of waking up the Lord was laying this on my heart. I feel He is giving us admonition for right now. See through these words what the Lord is saying. Picture it as you focus on the meaning of the words that are describing what God is saying to us. Pray and "Go after God" for this is the generation that will see the coming of the Lord.
Again I say, "See what the Lord is saying." Be careful or your hearts will be weighed down.
THIS IS THE GENERATION!
This is the generation that will see the coming of the Lord. This is the generation that must go after God. This is the generation that must not be rocked to sleep in the easy arms of lukewarm by the rocking chair of the good life. We are being tested and tempted to become drunk with all the extreme stimulation of our society today. We are dulled in our spiritual senses by the extreme. We are weighed down and over burdened by surfeiting.(too much)We are thrown into the atmosphere of depression and discouragement by all the worries and cares of this life. This is the generation that cannot afford to be distracted from the seriousness of this day by the hordes of busy demands put on us in this hour. We cannot risk being blinded from spiritual eternal focus by the counterfeit cloud of pleasures. We are being tempted with the intoxication of indifference from all the comforts and material prosperity of this country, but the greater danger is the strategy to suck us up into a whirlwind of distractions that will drop us into a pit of dull unawareness, robbing us of being fully awake and fully alive in the Spirit. It just creeps up on us like the frog being boiled in water so slowly that he is not even aware of what is happening, he just grows used to it.
As the bible warns us, this day we can see approaching may come upon us suddenly like a trap or a noose, for it will come upon all who live upon the face of the entire earth. So we must take caution to prepare and be ready. We must be on guard watching at all times in all situations. We are to pray so we will have the full strength and ability to be accounted worthy to escape all these things that will take place and to stand in the presence of the Lord.
LUKE 21:31-36 The Message
He(Jesus) told them a story. "Look at a fig tree. Any tree for that matter. When the leaves begin to show, one look tells you that summer is right around the corner. The same here-when you see these things happen, you know God's kingdom is about here. Don't brush this off: I'm not just saying this for some future generation, but for this one, too-these things will happen. Sky and earth will wear out; my words won't wear out."But be on your guard. Don't let the sharp edge of your expectation get dulled by parties and drinking and shopping. Otherwise, that Day is going to take you by complete surprise, spring on you suddenly like a trap, for it's going to come on everyone, everywhere, at once. So, whatever you do, don't go to sleep at the switch. Pray constantly that you will have the strength and wits to make it through everything that's coming and end up on your feet before the Son of Man."
Luke 21:31-36 NIV
Even so, when you see these things happening, you know that the kingdom of God is near."I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away. "Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with dissipation (depletion by excess), drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you unexpectedly like a trap. For it will come upon all those who live on the face of the whole earth.Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man."
