September 10, 2021 SMALL STRAWS by MARSHA BURNS I wonder how many of us have been aware that the heavens seem to be brassed over and that it is harder to find God than it once was. In seeking Him in this regard, I heard the Lord say that He has moved further away to encourage His people to wake up and draw closer to Him. It is time to awaken; these are the times of the Great Falling Away. We need to run to Him and seek Him in earnest. The above word from God implies that we are moving into the thick of end time. 2 Th. 2 (KJV) Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, 2 That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. 3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 4 Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Re. 12:3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. Re. 12:4 His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. Re. 12:5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron sceptre. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The red dragon of Revelation 12 is about to appear in the world. The Antichrist will be revealed just before the rapture.
