What Will Happen To Satan


Revelation 20 1-3 & 7-10  And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time. ….. When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth—Gog and Magog—and to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore. They marched across the breadth of the earth and surrounded the camp of God’s people, the city he loves.But fire came down from heaven and devoured them. 10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

While we are lifted up with Christ to spend a thousand years in heaven, Satan will be captured and bound for a thousand years. When we return to this earth we will be kept safe within God’s holy city. Satan will be freed at that time, and he will gather all the evil people, which is like the sand on the sea-shore. He will then try to kill God’s people, but fire will rain down from heaven and demolish them, and that will be the end of evil.

Oh Happy Day!!

Paradise At Last


Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,”[a] for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea.I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’[b] or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelations 21: 1-4

In my last two blog posts we spoke of Jesus coming back for a second time. We saw where He sat on the cloud and sent His angels out to gather His children. Graves were opened and the ones who died believing in Christ were the first to be lifted up to meet Jesus in the sky. Then the believers who were alive when Jesus came back a second time were also lifted up to be with Him.

At the time we were lifted up to meet Jesus, our bodies were changed. We will no longer live with sadness, pain or tears. We are now all free of negative emotions. Happiness only is the new order of the day. We will spend a thousand years with Jesus in heaven before coming back to live on a new and purified earth. Satan will be gotten rid of, and we will live with God forever and ever.

There is hope….

Harvesting Time


The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels. Matthew 13:39

The angel swung his sickle on the earth, gathered its grapes and threw them into the great winepress of God’s wrath. Revelation 14:19

This is the season when the ripened crops are gathered. The Farmer sends out his workers to bring all the good ripe crops to him. The bad ones are thrown away, or back into the ground. Both the good and bad crops grew together, but now is the separation time.

In Matthew 13  when Jesus was explaining the parable about the weed, He also told us what the harvest and harvesters referred to in His parables. The Harvest is the end of the age, and the Harvesters are the angels.

At the end of time which we all suspect is very near, Jesus will come into our earths atmosphere surrounded by a host of angels. The angels (harvesters) will then come and collect all of those who are faithful and believe in Jesus. We will be lifted up to meet Jesus in the air. The (bad harvest) or unbelievers will remain where they are…..on the perishing earth.

Jesus Returns

stairs in sky

 I looked, and there before me was a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was one like a son of man[b] with a crown of gold on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. Revelation 14:14

Surely it must be almost harvest time. It seems as though the whole earth is being thrown into a state of confusion, with good being confused for bad, and right confused for wrong. Humans are becoming more and more hopeless, the earth is creaking and groaning.

People are making plans as the seek ways to escape….to escape this corrupted earth. Jesus is coming back again, when He returns the next time, His feet will not touch this polluted earth until it has been purified. He will descend into this atmosphere, but will sit on the cloud, while the angels go forward and do the harvesting. Jesus will return with all His power and His glory.

God Given Instinct


Headed South

Well it’s that season again, and if you’re a nature lover you can’t help but watch as the birds take off for the warmer climates. It’s amazing to watch them do certain things purely by instinct, like in the spring time when the female goes off to collect straw to build her nest while the male stands watch near by as her protector.

While out the other day, we saw many birds flying in a south westerly direction, making the most of the wind I suppose. One thing we noticed was, that just about every bird we saw were flying in large groups. The picture above shows a large group of male Red Wing Black Birds. I wonder where the females are at this point, if the are out in front or if they are behind. Perhaps the female Red Wings are behind, while the males are out front to fight off any predator. Even though they may often fight amongst themselves, when a predator shows up they all come together to fight it off.

So often as human beings we seem to forget the instinct that God has given. We try to fight off the enemy in our own strength; we also don’t seem to be able to work as a team, and so we continue to fail; this can happen in our personal lives or in the church.

Perhaps one day we will all be able to learn and take in the lessons from nature.

Stillness in the Fall


Hillman Marsh

Though far from the beginning of time

Much beauty still abounds.

Trees are on fire while groups of birds are busy flapping.

A lonely bench facing the waves invites us to sit; to listen.

As we sit, we see  butterflies fly to the water’s edge and then back again.

They want to linger before the journey.

Few people around, all are stilled, quieted, hushed.

Where there should be coldness there is warmth,

Where there should be a rush there is lingering.


Hillman Marsh

So my hubby and I took some time out to celebrate our 21 years of marriage. On this particular day, we took in the beauty of nature by visiting the southern most tip of Canada. The waters were very rough, in a way that I’ve never seen. The waves came together at the very tip, and they overlapped each other. We stayed and mingled for a bit, with the few who also came to drink in this beauty.


Point Pelee

On this particular day, I would capture more with the naked eye than I did with the camera.



Some of our sightings included frogs, shore birds, turtles, vultures, herons, hawks…..

So on this beautiful fall day we would simply take time to sit and be still.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him; Psalm 37:7

Will We Pass The Test



Test me, Lord, and try me, examine my heart and my mind. Psalm 26:2

Wow, can you imagine asking God to take a look at your heart and your mind? God wants us to live a life so honest and pure, a life where He could examine us at any time, and find only His goodness in our hearts and on our lips.

At this time in history so many of us are wondering what is going on. We continue to wonder why our churches seem to be in such disarray. We can quote any given scripture to make our point, but are we actually living the scriptures out in our daily lives?

If we say we are Christians, we should be able to stand before God and ask Him to test our hearts and our minds

I pray that I will be able to live a life where God can test my heart and my mind at any time, as I know that I can hide nothing from God.

Thanks and Praise


David’s Prayer

10 David praised the Lord in the presence of the whole assembly, saying,

“Praise be to you, Lord,
    the God of our father Israel,
    from everlasting to everlasting.
11 Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
    and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
    for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
    you are exalted as head over all.
12 Wealth and honor come from you;
    you are the ruler of all things.
In your hands are strength and power
    to exalt and give strength to all.
13 Now, our God, we give you thanks,
    and praise your glorious name.

1 Chronicles 29: 11-14

Some times I think we tend to forget where our health and every good thing comes from. Without God we can do nothing.

Dear God, today and every day I will take the time to recognize You for Your power and Your strength, and for every thing You continue to do in my life.
