MORNINGTIME 3670by Benjamin Munsell on January 21, 2021
I (Jesus Christ) pray not that thou (Lord God) shouldest take them (Believers) out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them (Spiritually safe) from the evil (of Satanic influence). John 17:15. This Prayer of Christ is for ALL of mankind, not just for the Disciples only, of that day. The same as He died and Paid for the Forgiveness of Sin of ALL mankind to ever walk this earth. All past, present and future sins are covered by His Shed Blood. The Key here is that Christ doesn't want us to be magically whisked off planet earth when we get uncomfortable with even less Tribulation THAN THE BELIEVERS, PEOPLE AND PROPHETS OF OLD SUFFERED THROUGH, taking flaying, frying, roasting, crucifixion and being eaten by wild beasts, WITH JOY, PEACE AND ALL PRAISE TO THE LORD IN THE MIDST OF IT. The Lord God Almighty kept Noah and his family safe from the death and destruction going on all around them literally mere feet away. Jonah was kept from death in the very midst of what should have been Sure Death. Lot, a Most Righteous man, "held off" death and utter destruction until he was barely out of town. A whole city was dying of starvation one day, and the next were feasting on the "dainties" of their attackers. A lady was making a small biscuit for her and her son's last dinner, ready to die, and "the Lord" walked by and told her to Praise Him, and never go hungry again. Seasoned fishermen were sure they were all going to die in a most violent storm on the sea, and 3 words from Christ, "Peace, Be still", changed everything. If Christ is IN US and we are IN HIM, then we live in and with THE PEACE OF CHRIST AT ALL TIMES, IN ALL SITUATIONS, AS HE IS OUR ARK OF SAFETY, EVEN IN THE MIDST OF THE WRATH OF GOD. " A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; BUT IT SHALL NOT COME NIGH THEE". Psalm 91:7. This is still True, even to the Day that Christ comes back ONE TIME for His Bride at the End of all things. Be Safe in Christ, and Eternally, Be Blessed.
