April 19, 2013 Show - Scattered Sheep Vision Statement

Scattered Sheep Report Vision Statement:

Through blogcasts, articles, facebook and other social media, inspire others to not grow weary as we see the day approach. Track the signs of the times leading up to the coming of our Bridegroom as laid out in Matt 24, Revelation, and other prophetic passages in the Bible.  Network with other believers, looking out for one another as we warn of danger signs others might not be seeing because they are asleep. Unify God’s remnant of faithful Bible-believers and gather the scattered sheep in cyberspace.

Stir the pot, rock the boat, burst some bubbles, rain on parades, burn some bridges, spill the beans, and wait for the other shoe to drop – you get my drift!

With an understanding of Bible prophecy, here are some areas to watch that are setting the stage for the final seven years of the world as we know it:

1.    Technology
2.    Wars & rumors of wars
3.    Earthquakes and other natural disasters
4.    Apostasy, lapses of those who once walked the narrow road
5.    False prophets/teachers who come into the church
6.    Mockers – professing Christians turning hostile or apathetic toward us who love His appearing
7.    Lying signs and wonders & strange metaphysical phenomena/UFOs
8.    Normalization of immorality  - calling good evil, evil good, ex: homosexual agenda, abortion etc. general wickedness
9.    Ecumenism with the Roman Catholic Church and other religions.
10. Persecution – anti-Christian rhetoric in society.

Besides these things, I share links to good teaching and resources for research and education. Like-minded believers meet each other and offer information and advice to others looking for direction. Inspirational music/messages and news is also highlighted.  As you peruse the articles I and my friends share on facebook, the big picture emerges.

“For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only he who now restrains will do so until he is taken out of the way.” – 2 Thes. 2:7

"For I know this, that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.  Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves. Therefore watch, and remember that for three years I did not cease to warn everyone night and day with tears.” – Acts 20:29-31

"Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching. Assuredly, I say to you that he will gird himself and have them sit down to eat, and will come and serve them.  And if he should come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.  Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."” – Luke 12:37-40

“But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.  You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.  Therefore let us not sleep, as others do, but let us watch and be sober.” – 1 Thes 5:4-6

"Remember therefore how you have received and heard; hold fast and repent. Therefore if you will not watch, I will come upon you as a thief, and you will not know what hour I will come upon you.” – Rev 3:3
