Red Alert!

Romans 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.

As we spoke across the United States these past months, it seems we were continually met with a spirit of apathy and a lack of understanding about the times in which we live. Despite all the things going on in the world today, the sense of urgency about the hour seemed lost among many.

Dr. Albert Bartlett, an expert on compounding, gave this scenario. Let’s suppose you’re sitting in a water tight baseball stadium which seats over 50,000 people, and you’re handcuffed to the top bleacher. Let’s say a single drop of water is placed in the center of the stadium and is allowed to double at a rate of 1 time per minute. In other words, 1 drop doubled, equals two drops added to the stadium. The next minute, two drops doubled equals four drops, next minute, four doubled equals eight, and so on.

How many minutes do you suppose you'd have before you'd drown? A few months? A few days? Get this — how about 49 minutes?! That’s right;  it would take only 49 minutes to drown completely! What’s even more remarkable is that at 44 minutes, the amount of water in the stadium would only be at 7%! Seriously, do the math!

You see, the real action takes place only in the last five minutes. It seems there is all the time in the world and then…perhaps this is one reason the scriptures say the Lord will come as a thief in the night!

I do not want to be sitting there in the top bleacher, oblivious and helpless — do you? Those of us who are aware of the times have a key to the handcuffs — discernment, wisdom and faith! We will begin preparing now for the times drawing nearer by the second!

Let’s get a sense of urgency about the hour in which we live. Let’s pray earnestly, invest wisely, and be about His business while there’s still time! There’s SO much work to be done!

    Hi, that was amazing! I am a 48 year old family man, spent the last 4years working pipeline, out of town 75% of the year. I haven’t gone to church in that time except a couple of times with my daughter. I was up all night and I believe the Holy Spirit was speaking to me as I could feel his presence.So I made a decision to ease of working out of town and to feather it to in town work. The verse you chose or God chose for me to see at 7am confirms my decision. Thank-you for working with the Ultimate Boss.

    Thank you so much for posting this amazing study. It was truly a blessing to me. I stand in agreement that we should all be about our Father's business.

    because math gives witness to The Person of God (infinite set) its logic must also do the same!

    Wow!  That should get one thinking about the urgency of the situation.  Complacency can be dangerous…  we have less time than we think to do what we should be doing. Annieberean1945

    What gets my goat is that the negro population and even the evangelicals vote into office a president who strongly supports the killing of babies, dependency on government and not GOD etc. because of the color of his skin and the charisma he has. This is the tip of the iceburg degenerating our nation that is suppose to be one nation under GOD! Obama is a liar leading this great society into darkness. Wake up negro leaders, and ignorant Christians, before the summer turns to dust! REPENT, and elect true people of GOD. We had a good opportunity with Romney, but the negros chose an ungodly man because of the color of his skin and promising pie in the sky, and a good number of Christians either stayed at home on election day or followed the blind. Repent and and save the USA!
