PREPARE THE WAY OF THE LORD

When this ministry works to awaken the church we are working to prepare the way of the Lord. Many are familiar with the phrase as it appears in all four Gospels. It is attributed to John the Baptist as he was the one to go before Jesus and prepare Israel for their Messiah. Many may not be aware of it but the passages in the Gospels quote this passage from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah.

Millions have gone there for strength and encouragement. Close examination of the words of this Psalm show it has special meaning for the Time of Jacob’s Trouble, the end-times. We referenced it in THE SIXTH SIGNPOST: THE ABOMINATION. There we discussed how it was a picture of God’s protection during the flight of the righteous in the great tribulation.
