It would appear the instant society has crept into the Ecclesia. We pray and nothing happens so God must not have heard us.
2 Peter 3:8-9 KJV
But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Had these scoffers considered the dreadful vengeance with which God swept away a whole world of ungodly men at once, surely they would not have scoffed at his threatening an equally terrible judgment. The heavens and the earth which now are, by the same word, it is declared, will be destroyed by fire. This is as sure to come, as the truth and the power of God can make it. Christians are here taught and established in the truth of the coming of the Lord. Though, in the account of men, there is a vast difference between one day and a thousand years, yet, in the account of God, there is no difference. All things past, present, and future, are ever before him: the delay of a thousand years cannot be so much to him, as putting off any thing for a day or for an hour is to us. If men have no knowledge or belief of the eternal God, they will be very apt to think him such as themselves. How hard is it to form any thoughts of eternity! What men count slackness, is long-suffering, and that to us-ward; it is giving more time to his own people, to advance in knowledge and holiness, and in the exercise of faith and patience, to abound in good works, doing and suffering what they are called to, that they may bring glory to God.
Here is my walk in faith and trust God’s promises. First, I am fighting an infection from a neglected lesion on my right foot. This infection is causing a low grade fever (temp 87.6 C should be 89.7. Chill Blaine as I am unable to raise my body temp. Cover up and slowly raise temp. I am fighting this using Bandaide pads and bandaides soaked with Dettol working slowly, prayer is helping as well.
To continue what I faithfully place before our Father in Heaven’s throne daily are the following maladies currently standing against me. Tumor in left lung, type2 diabetes, causing nerve damage in feet and legs. After effects of diabetes drugs with Liver and kidneys.
These are my daily maladies I place before God’s throne daily sometimes I plead two or three times. How do I know God has heard my prayers, Satan is there reminding me the world has an instant answer for me. Just pick up the phone.
In my prayers I let the Lord know all that I ask for is in His time and Will. I don’t ask for or expect an immediate response, as a person it would be nice if it occurred. However not expected.
Why am I bringing this forward so those who in their hearts believe they will be lifted out when the Lord returns. Some are praying for our Lord’s return right away so they may not go through the trials about to be brought down on the world and those in darkness.
Well, here is a truth, we as the chosen by God bring distinct are separate from the world, however as such we are to walk in Yeshua’s footsteps and take on maladies He suffered. Does that make us a martyr no. It makes us a humble servant obedient onto the Father walking in Faith and trust that what we pray as Yeshua did will be answered as it was for Him.
What we may suffer as we continue our journey is in the will of God. What he allows in my life is not for me to question, it is hold it up to him in prayer and in faith and trust know in His time He will answer my pleas.
Many will scoff at what I am about to reveal. Those who pray for God’s return and lifting out you are being selfish and self indulgent. Peter revealed why God is hesitating in 2Peter 3:9] The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
As I read the verse it explains why the Father is not only hesitating coming back but as well that we would continue walking in Yeshua’s footsteps. He will deal with us in his time and Will.
As for my maladies I keep my eyes fixed. On Yeshua, discarding anything Satan brings forward. Faith my brethren trust, let God do His work in and through you, it’s part of Him continuing his shaping and molding you in order to present you to the Father as your interceder. If you can’t trust him now when will you? I say pray for strength courage integrity, perseverance, and the word of God.
A humble servant obedient unto our Lord Yeshua and Yahuwah.
