“Terrible Times” by Dr. Jené Walker

“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days.” Knowing this, how do you ensure that you’re not a part of the “deceived” crew? How do you seek God for the gift of discernment? God has instructed us to stay away from people who are lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God – having a form of godliness but denying its power. He says have nothing to do with such people. 2 Timothy 3:1-5
 
Do you need to do a spiritual survey of your crew? Why is it dangerous to surround yourself with these types in this season? Imagine the types of things these people will say to you. Imagine the ungodly counsel. Imagine the manipulation. The lies. The deception. The deception is so so so strong right now that if it were possible the very elect – (God’s chosen people who He has protected as His remnant) – even they would be deceived. We are just one relationship or affiliation away from the great deception. If it were not so God wouldn’t have said STAY AWAY. Idolatrous Israel (brown people), you know we’ve always had a problem conforming to the ways of pagan people. So stay alert. How can we get the wealth that is rightfully ours WITHOUT becoming lovers of money? How can we know our worth in the kingdom WITHOUT becoming lovers of ourselves? How can we take vacations, eat fine foods, and relax without becoming lovers of pleasure? Oh yes. One relationship, one affiliation, one action away from deception. We can’t afford to slip up. Terrible times are here right now. Is being affiliated with the lot of this group worth losing our souls?

“The Day Nor the Hour” by Dr. Jené Walker

Acts 1:6-8 “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”

Stay focused on the work. The enemy will use our curiosity and analytical minds to have us trying to figure out the exact day and the exact hour of our restoration and the restoration of God’s chosen people, the Hebrew Israelites. When Jehovah? When will the vision manifest? When will my spouse come? When will You return? We don’t know the day or the hour. We don’t worry about the exact dates. We know what the power of the Holy Spirit reveals to us. Meanwhile, we have work to do. In every area of our lives we are charged to be witnesses. Jehovah has already empowered us with the anointing we need. He has already given us dunamis power to teach, preach, cast out demons, and heal the sick. He has already equipped us to accomplish His plan in our lives. We don’t have time to sit by and look out the window for signs of the times. Keep working. Keep building. Keep planning, “God willing.” Keep ministering. Keep witnessing. Don’t worry about the day. Don’t worry about the hour. Don’t let the enemy cause you to get stuck in a spiritual time capsule. Work while you can.

“Be Content in the Season You’re In” by Dr.J.

If you’re in a season that God placed you in, learn to be content. There is nothing like the peace of God when you trust God right where you are right now. You know God is sovereign. If He wanted you somewhere else, that’s where you would be.

Lord, I just want to go with the flow of Your Spirit. Even though You’ve placed a desire in me for something “more” for the kingdom, I know when I’m ready and You’re ready, You will birth it.

The enemy uses our own emotions and other people to cause us to doubt, to become anxious, and even to be impatient and angry with God. We renounce those spirits right now in Jesus’s name. We are content in the season in which You’ve placed us, Lord. When You’re ready to move us, we’re ready for the next level. Dr.J.

Clothe Yourselves for Each Season of Your Marriage by Dr.Jené Walker

Marriages go through seasons. You vowed to stay committed through each one. Just clothe yourself appropriately for the temperature changes with the Word of God.  “It will be a shelter from daytime heat and a hiding place from storms and rain” (Isaiah 4:6 NLT). “She has no fear of winter for her household, for everyone has warm[a] clothes. (Proverbs 31:21 NIV). “A farmer too lazy to plant in the spring has nothing to harvest in the fall” (Proverbs 20:4 MSG).

Sometimes you may have to hide yourself in the Word. Save and sow into the spring of your marriage when things are going well so that when rough times come, you have a solid spiritual foundation. Plant love, plant prayer, plant commitment, plant companionship, plant communication so that your marital harvest is plentiful in God’s timing for you two to reap. Don’t fret over the season you’re in right now. God knows every season and is with you through each one! You just stay committed and clothed for the occasion. Jené Elaine Walker
