1.There is a time for everything, “A time to WEEP, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance” [Ecclesiastics 3:4] The time to WEEP is here as nations groan under unbearable disequilibrium made worse by unrelenting pandemic, but not so for those who place their TRUST in the Lord Jesus Christ, “We have also a more SURE WORD of PROPHECY; whereunto ye do well that ye TAKE HEED, as unto a LIGHT that SHINETH IN A DARK PLACE, until the day dawn, and the DAY STAR ARISE IN YOUR HEARTS” [2 Peter 1:19] How I wish you will stop WEEPING and “TAKE HEED” to the LIGHT that SHINETH in the dark, the DAY STAR that should arise in your heart and sure HOPE of Christ’s imminent appearance. Beloved, WEEP no more, “But REJOICE, INASMUCH AS YE ARE PARTAKERS OF CHRIST’S SUFFERINGS that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be GLAD ALSO WITH EXCEEDING JOY” [1 Peter 4:13] Those who WEEP when they should REJOICE and vice versa are IGNORANT, and of such were the “DAUGHTERS OF JERUSALEM”, “But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but WEEP FOR YOURSELVES, and for your children” [Luke 23:28]

2. It is a shame how present TRIBULATION and FEAR of what lies ahead have turned once fiery preachers to disoriented lame ducks [Jeremiah 30:6] Some who once spoke boldly of the Coming of the Lord are turned to social and political commentary, WAILING over the crumbling and demystification of human civilization. “WATCH YE THEREFORE: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: LEST COMING SUDDENLY HE FIND YOU SLEEPING” [Mark 13:35-36] I warn you to beware of those who entice you to expend time and resources in hope of a better world; they DISTRACT you from the refreshing HOPE of Christ’s imminent appearance. Listen, no man by WAILING or PRAYING will save this generation from TRIBULATION, “… for we must through much TRIBULATION enter into the kingdom of God” [Acts 14:22] WEEP not over this corrupt generation, WEEP FOR YOURSELVES; do the NEEDFUL and be not like Martha, “And Jesus answered and said unto her, Martha, Martha, thou art careful and troubled about many things: But ONE THING IS NEEDFUL: and Mary hath chosen that good part, which shall not be taken away from her” [Luke 10:41-42] The "NEEDFUL" is your SALVATION. Stop chasing shadows, SEEK the Lord while He may yet be found. Do the NEEDFUL; working daily to settle your accounts with the Lord and PREACH the GOSPEL; “… Let the dead bury their dead: but GO THOU and PREACH the KINGDOM OF GOD” [Luke 9:60]

3. It is true the Church is harassed and pressed on every, thus says the Lord: “And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I WILL BUILD MY CHURCH; and the GATES OF HELL SHALL NOT PREVAIL against it” [Matthew 16:18] Brethren it is so easy to get carried away WEEPING over the Church, as to imagine we can SAVE Her; Jesus did that when He gave up His LIFE on the Cross. Let no man DISTRACT and or DECEIVE you to join hands with those who agitate and take up arms to fight for Christ and His Church, but be diligent in FAITH to “… WORK OUT YOUR OWN SALVATION with fear and trembling” [Philippians 2:12] Some Jews came to Jesus, soliciting his assistance to avenge the death of some Galileans who came to offer sacrifices, but Jesus answered: “… Suppose ye that these Galilaeans were sinners above all the Galilaeans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, Nay: but, EXCEPT YE REPENT, YE SHALL LIKEWISE PERISH” [Luke 13:1-4] Yes, there is persecution and merciless killing of SAINTS in virtually all nations, listen, God does no need your help; it is PROPHECY fulfilled, “And it was given unto him to MAKE WAR WITH THE SAINTS, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations” [Revelation 13:7] WEEP not over the Church; the Lord knows His own and shall SAVE them. Let those who are slaves to this world WEEP FOR THEMSELVES, as the nations sink into DISTRESS “But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with EXCEEDING JOY” [1 Peter 4:13]

4. This is no time to be blinded by tears and DISTRACTED by a world in the throes of destruction, but “LOOKING for and HASTING UNTO the COMING of the DAY OF GOD, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the ELEMENTS SHALL MELT with fervent heat?” [2 Peter 3:12] The present world is by divine counsel predetermined to pass away; there is nothing you can do about it. As shadows of confusion overtake the nation's, REJOICE, if truly your HOPE is in the appearance of Christ, for the “PASSING AWAY” of this world is close and “DAY OF GOD” is at hand, when we shall be redeemed from this sinful world, as it is written: “And when these things begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP, and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; for your redemption draweth nigh” [Luke 21:28] Be strong in the Lord, stop whining and refuse to be DISTRACTED as do those who lack understanding of the times and seasons of divine agenda, “... knowing the time, that now it is high time to AWAKE OUT OF SLEEP: for now is our SALVATION NEARER THAN WHEN WE BELIEVED” [Romans 13:11] I assure you, our SALVATION is nearer than at any other time; quit WEEPING and LOOK UP. LOOK steadfast at the REWARD set before you and “… LET US LAY ASIDE EVERY WEIGHT, and the SIN which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us” [Hebrews 12:1]

5. Accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, amen
