Empty Vaults

And that Thou shouldest give reward unto Thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear Thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. Revelation 11:18b 

Many countries are now digging in their empty "Piggy Banks", of which the bottom is in clear sight.
The USA will probably print some more $$ bills, if it can be covered or not. Predictions may sound positive, but it are just cover-ups and a soothers, until the printer runs out of ink. 

People who are in debt may soon lose everything and there will be no government to provide for them. Wasting of all sorts, including that of energy which has gone on for years and who wanted to hear about minimizing, or reversing it?

Kids have grown up with the attitude of "throw aways", bursting at the seams with toys and clothing. Now we see the result... the globe is in trouble and too late to bring it back into "shape". Soon there may be No gasoline or it will be too expensive! Stay home, don't ride your "toys", and grow your own food, is the hint. 

Most of this trouble comes  because of rebellion and by forsaking God and His word. Careless living is another issue with a waste of resources, ongoing all over this globe. Just think about the unnecessary air travelling of vacationers and businesses over seas, the use of 4 wheelers, dirt bikes, pleasure crafts. This earth will soon be like a worn-out garment, what the scriptures speak about. Besides there are so many people who leave the lights, TV, radio etc. on, around the clock. 

My family came through a 5 year war and practiced to minimize on all sides.  Will this generation know and learn how to moderate... they may go out of their mind not knowing what and how to do it.

Another sign on the WALL... 
Jesus is on His way to retrieve His Bride. Watch therefore that it shall not overcome you unknowingly... If His return is delayed the suffering on this planet will increase, and of course sin and abomination will be pushed to the top level.

Thank God we have HOPE, therefore fear does not grip our hearts if we totally trust in our Heavenly Father. This in itself will be a challenge for God's people.

Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. Psalm 91:5,6

Keep focused on the Lord, your God, and keep free from this world. We should always expect Jesus to return any moment. Come Lord Jesus, come hastily, I pray!

Hold Fast!

But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore , my beloved brethren be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor is not in vain in the Lord. 1 Corinthians 15:57-58 

God's will also contains His promises to us.  Healing, Restoration, Salvation are mentioned in one "breath" in Isaiah 53:4,5. 

If one does not receive salvation, or healing we cannot say it was not God's will. His promises are yea and amen. One has to search his/her heart why not is received that what He has promised. If we waver or doubt we will sink as Peter did. We fail, but God never fails. 

The secret in the life of the child of God is that ONE STANDS ON HIS PROMISES AND WALKS IN OBEDIENCE. We will go through trials and we are trained as we train our children. If we endure, God will be manifested in our lives, for His glory. 

Faith is a very important key because it puts God's power into action on your behalf. Consider Daniel and the lions, Rahab's red rope, and David, when he killed Goliath. These are just some of the examples on how faith is put into action. 

Faith is about seeing the unseen... bringing into existence that which is NOT... and something hoped for which materializes... This is my interpretation of Hebrew 11:1
WITHOUT FAITH we cannot please God, says the Scripture.

Having faith can be compared to that of a muscle. The more you exercise it and put it into action, the stronger it gets. Hence, the more effective you become in OVERCOMING. 

The battlefield is here on earth, but the REWARD will be handed out when standing before His throne. Keep this in mind when your path is not as smooth as you wish.

HOLD ON, I PRAY and do not lose heart!

Glory to God

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy. He will not always chide: neither will He keep His anger for ever. 
He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward them that fear Him. As far as the east is from the west, so far hath He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:8-12

Surely we can praise God Almighty for such encouraging words we can find in His Book. It is like a "Love Letter" to us, and it stirs my innermost being, it thrills my soul and it makes me weep because I do not deserve this in any way.

Thank God, I found favor in His eyes and He rescued me from all my fears of ending up in eternal fire of hell. The Father presented His Son Jesus, the Christ as the ONLY remedy for my dark and sinful soul. I cannot praise and thank Him enough... but once in His presence, I promise, I will sing my heart out. “WORTHY, WORTHY IS THE LAMB FOR SINNERS SLAIN!” 

How can we ever have enough words to thank God, His Son and the Holy Spirit to bring us to the place of total surrender and in the right state of mind of accepting Christ as the ONLY solution for our troubled and sinful life? 
Even my speaking in unknown Tongues is insufficient. Therefore I am waiting for the PERFECT LANGUAGE to express myself fully before the throne of God... and that DAY will surely come. 


I am overwhelmed...

In His service,
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
