To have 20/20 vision for next year 2020 is to read, understand and heed 2 Chron 20:20
"they rose early in the morning and went out to the wilderness of Tekoa; and when they went out, Jehoshaphat stood and said, 'Listen to me, O Judah and inhabitants of Jerusalem, put your trust in the LORD your God and you will be established. Put your trust in His prophets and succeed."
Amos 3:7 Surely the LORD God does nothing unless He reveals His secret counsel to His servants the prophets.
One of the problems today is the nation and citizens are listening to false prophets not true prophets. Jer 23:1-22
True prophet: 1 Cor 14:3 "But one who prophesies speaks to men for edification and exhortation and consolation" , 31 "For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all may be exhorted"
New Testament prophet and exhortation
1 Tim 4:13
2 Tim 4:1-4
1 Tim 5:17-20
7 THINGS WE MUST DO IN THESE LAST DAYS
Put Family First, Have devotions, reading the Word. PROMOTE DEVOTIONAL
Practically every cultural sin today is an attack on the family. Planned [prevention] of Parenthood, abortion, Drag Queen Story Hour, Public education, LGBT agenda, ex. Boy Scouts, destruction of sports, ; attack on manhood, fatherhood, sexual perversion, pornography, demonic music, drugs, divorce, goes back to economic attacks forcing both parents to work. 3.5% of the family is saved if child is saved first. 17% if the wife is saved first, and 93 % if the husband is saved first.
Reform or run from your local Americanized church
if it is a waste of time or led by pastors not following the biblical model. Imagine: being silent and passive concerning abortion, Drag Queen Hour, politics, accepting practicing "democratic platform Christians" a little leaven leavens the whole lump of dough.
In earlier shows we looked at how the New Testament describes the duties of the pastor or elders. Church leadership should encourage each believer to be good stewards in the use of their spiritual gifs (1 Pet 4:10), to exercise their royal priesthood (1 Pet 2:9) and to function properly as a member of the body (1 Cor 12:27; Eph 4:16).
Understand the times.
1 Chron 12:32
We need to OCCUPY in these last times, and not be PREOCCUPIED with the times
We must understand the times, but also make the most of our time, and give the devil no time. Prioritize time. Get back to reading the Bible, not merely watching alternative media.
