This Generation Will Not Pass…

Matthew 24 is a passage of Scripture that tells what to look for just before the Lord returns.  Jim preaches from it often.  Right after the Word tells about wars, earthquakes, famines, etc., it says that this generation will not pass away before we see the coming of the Lord. 

What generation?  The generation that is living at the time those things spoken of in Matthew 24 are happening. 

The New Living Bible says it like this:  “I tell you the truth, this generation will not pass from the scene until all these things take place.”

Unless you completely ignore the signs of the times, you must know that we ARE the last generation – it’s not a cliche’, it’s a reality.  We are truly a chosen generation – chosen to occupy this earth and see the Lord coming again in great Glory and Power.

Have you ever thought about why He would choose you and me to be here at this time in history?  Some think we’re here by accident – the product of happenstance.  Yet, those who are truly believers of Jesus Christ know that nothing in this universe is happenstance with our God. 

There are so many scriptures that tell us we are not an accident – we were planned before the foundations of the earth.  Think about that for just a minute.  Before our Creator made the earth that we live on, He knew us and knew we would occupy that earth at this crucial time in the history of the world.

We are a chosen generation.  With that, comes privilege, and with privilege comes responsibility.

Spiritual truths are being revealed every day that herald the Second Coming.  Light is equivalent to truth, and when we receive light or truth we have more responsibilities. So not only do we have more light today, but we also have more accountability.

The more truth that we understand, the more you and I are required to walk in the level of understanding we have been given and to carry that light to others.  That’s why many people will only go so far with God and then they balk at knowing the deeper things.  They know they will be held accountable!  I wouldn’t want to stand before God and tell Him that I refused His gifts because I didn’t want to be accountable for them.  As a matter of fact, there is a parable about that in Matthew 25, and the end of the one who would not use what God had given him wisely – well, let’s just say it doesn’t end well.

In the last generation, God is sending a message of truth to the entire world, and after you receive that message of truth, it draws a line in the sand for you. 

Now in the last generation, Jesus has chosen you to carry the message of truth to a sin-sick world.  Much of this world has so twisted things that they now call evil good, and good evil.  But truth is always the standard bearer in this earth.  The scriptures tell us that when evil comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God will lift up a standard against it.  Will you do it?  Will you be His standard bearer in these Last Days?

There has been so much talk and preaching about a purposeful life – but there is no greater purpose under heaven than to be a standard bearer for the Lord Jesus in these Last Days!

  1. I am very thankful to have been born in this generation. I do believe
    that this is the generation that will see the coming of the Lord.
    I love Dottie Rambo’s songs, especially the one, The King is Coming.
    I go to the rock. Her songs are so timely. We are seeing prophecy
    being fulfilled in the news. Labor pains, getting closer and closer
    then the water breaks, then the transition period, usually short
    before the birth. Well the labor pains are getting more intense,
    the water is breaking, with the floods, what a water flow. The
    transition period before the birth, if I remember right is pretty
    painful, then the birth. It seems the labor pains are getting closer.
    I have felt for years, the church should be like a hospital, helping the hurting, bandaging the wounded. What I have seen in some churches,
    when one is wounded or hurting, some churches leave them to die by the wayside. It should not be so. Let the churches arise and be the
    good Samaritan, tending to the wounded.

  2. Lori…thank you for the words you have posted in this blog…you are so right…I have wondered why God had me alive at this time in history, with the trials and situations I am enduring.It is a privledge to be chosen..yes I want to be a standard bearer…and I am trying to do this ,someone said to me the other day..I cannot believe you are handling this all so well what you are dealing with…I said it is God who is giving me strength when I am out of it..It is not always popular to be a standard can be downright depressing…but I am looking to the call of God, not the approval of people, whether they are family or friends.I intend to be His witness wherever I may be…even in the market picking out food,where the prices are rising so fast, or the doctor’s office or getting gas for the car..the opportunities to tell about Christ and speak His Word are enormous… and to encourage others,if we listen to that still small voice…I love you Lori, thank you again for this post in your is a confirmation to me from God….my heart sends you a big hug through cyberspace….You and Jim and your family and Morningside are in my prayers…Love , Myrtle
