Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give [her] will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give [her] will become in [her] a spring of water welling up to eternal life.” John 4:13-14
Most American women are decent. Caring. Hardworking. In many ways we are the backbone of our nation. I am quite certain we are the backbone of the Christian church. Yet I’m alarmed. We are under attack. And we seem to be unaware of it.
Could it be that our careers, jobs, families, material possessions, education, technology, travel, entertainment, and whatever else we could name, have kept us so busy that we are not paying attention? Could it be also that none of the things we’re involved in have filled the emptiness inside? Are we getting entangled in more and more causes–political and social, local and national–because we are looking for…what? For purpose? Meaning? Fulfillment? Satisfaction? Happiness? Whatever it is seems to be illusive, so we try harder. Yell louder. Demonstrate more…
The Bible warns that in the days before the return of Jesus Christ to earth there will be a unique attack on women. We will be offered a false path that leads, not to genuine liberation, but to destruction. Jesus repeatedly warned, “Watch out that no one deceives you.”
The following article reveals some of the dangerous deception being perpetrated on women today, and it is deeply disturbing to me. I wonder if many of the women described, who are marching in the streets, are looking for an identity or a cause that’s greater than themselves. Because they want their lives to make a difference. Which is an understandable desire. But could it be they are not looking for something, but for Someone? Someone who will love them, understand them, help them, guard and guide them. Someone who will replace their fears with peace, satisfy their hungry souls, fill their empty hearts, and give their lives eternal significance. Could it be, like the Samaritan woman in John 4, they are looking for Jesus, yet don’t know it? I wonder… Just in case they are, I am committed to giving Jesus in any and every way that I can. Please pray for me. And join with me in just giving them Jesus…
But watch out! As for you and me, dear Christian sisters, Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness?…Therefore come out from them and be separate, says the Lord. The enemy is trying to harness the pain, anger, emptiness and restlessness in the hearts of women in order to use it for his own evil purposes. Don’t be deceived!
 2 Timothy 3:1-9 Moses was the true liberator. When Jannes and Jambres opposed him, they were opposing true liberation.

A couple of years ago, I shared with you an excerpt from the manuscript of my new book, The Daniel Prayer. The excerpt described the function of lighthouses which serves as an effective illustration of the dangerous, destructive condition of spiritual darkness, and the necessity of a guiding Light if we are to make it triumphantly Home.
I am a lifelong North Carolinian. While I don’t know as much as I should about this beautiful state, I do know that our coast is very rugged. It has been nicknamed the Graveyard of the Atlantic because so many ships have come to ruin on its Outer Banks. So the shoreline is dotted with lighthouses. The purpose of each one is to reveal to the passing ships where they are. Lighthouses help ships find their way safely in the dark. Without them, ships have to guess their way through very dangerous waters and currents. Many ships, although navigating to the best of their ability without the light, have run aground on the submerged rocks and been broken up by the pounding waves.
One can imagine what would happen if there was no guiding or warning light coming from the shore, either because it was dim or had gone out. Ships would flounder in the hostile, changing sea. Some vessels might make it through to safety, but others would wind up wrecked on the shoreline. I used this example to underscore the imperative of letting our Light shine in this dark, dangerous world so that by our words and actions, we point people to the safety that is found in a right relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ.
As I reflect on this example now, there is another critical message that has come to mind, and it’s this: I can’t imagine a ship passing through the dangerous currents and sandbars without straining to see the beacon of light streaming from the lighthouse. What ship would disregard the critical information of where it is, or ignore the light that warns of danger? What ship would not desperately want what the light offers which is safe passage through the misty foam and fog, the wind and the waves?
Our world today is like the waters of North Carolina’s Outer Banks: treacherous…undulating…confusing…stormy…dangerous.
While some Christians seem to dim the Light because of their timidity, fear of what others think, or a desire to be politically correct, others are simply ignoring the Light. They seem to be guessing their way through the darkness. They seem to have no idea they have entered into very treacherous waters with no guided path to safety. They don’t make time to read their Bibles, or if they do, they don’t seem to connect the dots between what the Bible says and what is happening in our world today. They’re not looking for the Light!
Which are you? Are you letting your Light so shine before others that they can see where they are, and where they need to be in their faith? And while you are helping others find their way, do you continue to stay focused on the Light yourself? Don’t get distracted! Don’t be diverted! Don’t get off course, even a little. Keep watching—read your Bible daily, stay informed of current events–so that you know where you are and can navigate a safe course through the dangerous days in which we live. Jesus is coming! Keep watching!
For the glory of His Name…
Join Anne, with special guests Bill Koenig (White House Correspondent and international journalist) and Rabbi Jonathan Cahn (author of The Harbinger and The Mystery of the Shemitah), in a thrilling, provocative, and very timely challenge to Keep Watching the signs of the times that point to a climactic end to human history as we know it.
Although the world may look like it is falling apart, the Bible tells us that it is really just falling into place — right at the feet of Jesus. Immerse yourself in the book of Joel and expand your understanding of the urgency of biblical prophecy for today. And just as God has a plan and purpose for the human race, He also has a plan and purpose for your life. So…wake up! Don’t miss out on what He has for you! Keep watching!
