The Time For Saddling Your Camel Is Now

Image result for wise men on camels“After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, ‘Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews. We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him’” Matthew 1:1-2

We’re all familiar with this passage of scripture. How the wise men followed the star to Bethlehem to see the new born Jesus. Actually, Jesus was about two years old when they arrived, the journey from the East (Babylon) a long one. The wise men or Magi as they were known knew the Hebrew scriptures well and had long waited (and watched) for this day. And when it finally arrived they saddled up their camels and set out on a journey that would change their lives.

I have often thought how exciting it must have been for them to make that journey. To see the word of God fulfilled in their generation. God overtly at work in bringing about his plan of redemption. Then it occurred to me that we have been blessed in a similar way.  On September 23, 2017, the Revelation 12 sign will appear in the heavens.  And with that information we all have the opportunity for our lives to be equally changed. But like any journey it requires a first step. A saddling of the camel you might say. For if the wise men had never saddled their camels they would never have met the King.

Many are not aware that God designed the sun, moon and stars not just for light and for seasons but also for signs.

And God said, Let there be lights in the expanse of the sky to separate the day from night and let them serve as signs to mark seasons and days and years …” Genesis 1:14

And this is one of those signs. Perhaps one of the most significant to be found in all of scripture.  An indication that God is on the move and that history and life as we know it is going to change in the most radical way possible. A sign this big, this prominent is indicative of a likewise big event.  To say that it is unparalleled would not be an understatement.

Where do you stand on this? Are you a curious by stander? A skeptic?  The sign of Revelation 12 waits for no one. It is coming. The heavens were designed in anticipation of this day.  The Church is about to be caught up to heaven and the 7 year tribulation is about to commence.

If you’re not familiar with these terms get a Bible and read the latter part of the book of Revelation. You don’t need to understand it all to grasp the point that this earth is not a place you will want to be when all of this gets underway.

The only thing you need to do is to respond to God’s gracious invitation for salvation. I’ve listed a few verses below to help you in that decision.

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” Matthew 11:28

“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” Acts 16:31

“If you declare with your mouth Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” Romans 10:9.

“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hearts my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person and they with me” Revelation 3:20

“… I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation” 2 Corinthians 6:2

Yes, today is the day of salvation. Get on that camel and follow that star – the time for meeting the King is near. Are you ready?

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon, the very soon, return of Jesus! Cindy
