My impression is that to redeem the time, is to make up for lost time spent badly, to compensate so that any damage is repaired, and all wrongs are made right again.

To make the current time as if no damage or error had occurred to begin with.

That all is repaired and whole, and blessed.

How do we do that?

Ephesians 5 explains.

Fix relationship with God

14 Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.

17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

18 And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

20 Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;

Worship, praise

19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;

Read the Word and come to know His will

Obey God in all his commandments

Repent of all wrongdoing, and do this daily

Serve him in an unselfish manner, seeking nothing for self

Fix relationship with others

2 And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savour.

21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

Here, it might take more than what is mentioned.

If you have lied about someone, then tell the truth.

If you have stolen, give it back with interest.

If you have broken something, fix it.

If you have hated someone, then learn to love them as God loves them.

If you have neglected someone or something, then give this all your attention and strength

Resolve misunderstandings

Find peaceful solutions

Love one another

Forgive

Oppose evil – you cannot be politically correct. Something is either right or wrong.

3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;

4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks.

5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God.

6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience.

7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them.

8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light:

11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.

12 For it is a shame even to speak of those things which are done of them in secret.

13 But all things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light.

How much time is left for the “redemption of time” to take place?

First of all, the MAIN redemption occurred with Jesus / Yahshua 2000 years ago.

We are just to embrace this, and live and walk in it.

If we have left the path, we need to get back on it.

To make amends, we have little time left.

If you have things that you have done wrong, then you must work quickly to fix what is wrong, and make it right again.

For example, if you have failed as a parent, child or spouse, this failure must be corrected, and healing has to take place.

If you were slack as an employee, you must do a very good job now.

If you cheated someone, you must pay them back

clip_image008

Judgment is coming.

If you do not judge yourself, and make corrections, GOD will judge you, and the results may not be pleasant.

Temporary embarrassment is one thing, but eternal punishment is another.

Redeem the time, or do the time.

  1. […] here for […]

  2. It seems from this, the message is clear ‘
    Repent, for the time is near’

  3. God has been telling me about redeeming the time mostly with “See then that you walk circumspectly… but understand what the will of the Lord is” and then Moses’s “Teach us to number our days, that we might gain a heart of wisdom” (Ps. 90). It really is a word for this time.

    • arendale

      thank you . I hope you are well. you are in my prayers nightly

      • Thanks for your prayers, Marianne. Here are the plans, and we also can use your advice:

        1. I’m moving up to New Jersey soon so that I and my friend Mark can be close and begin to fellowship. He doesn’t see God at work in the lives of church christians and is seeking something more. Another friend also named Mark 2 hours away in New York wants to be a part of the fellowship, and Amber in Utah also wants to join soon. Ps. 133 and many parts of the NT tell us to assemble together; we know this is God’s will and sense that He wants us to seek Him somewhat like Daniel and his three friends did. Please pray for God to protect and provide regarding this, because all four of us have had occult attacks on us (by satanists and witches, etc.) and it’s become real to us as something that satan uses against christians and churches and ministries.

        2. What advice would you give us for getting together and starting to seek God, etc. I think you give some good advice in your recent ‘Redeeming the Time’ article, but for four us from different backgrounds, what’s a good starting point? (By the way some of us are single and some have kids and some married.)

        • since you seem to be mostly located in different places, you may have to fellowship online.

          it is not hard to start a blog and you could do that, and the others could chime in with comments……..my blog started with just me and grew to over 13 million over time..so the same could happen with your blog, if the Lord tarries

          or use facebook to keep in touch

          there is also phone calls and conference calls, as long as you have the right phone plan

          • I was talking about fellowship when we’re in person.

            • just take turns, share the Word, and see where the holy spirit leads you

              • Good advice. Line upon line, step by step, a little at a time. We can just get together and start with prayer and reading the Word, and the Lord will start leading in no time from revelation to revelation and experience to experience. That’s what we’ll do.

  4. 5~22~5999 (out of 6000) in this Final Apocalypse
    Yahshua the Son of Yahweh Returns VERY SOON!
    Pray NOW to be SAVED and SEALED in THEM!
    Revelation 14:1 HalleluYah! Hebrew: “Praise ye Yah!”

    Yes, REDEEM the TIME by believing THE TRUTH.

    The truth is the same yesterday, today, and forever!

    Recently, after about 20 years since suddenly dropping
    out of my life, my 42 year old daughter contacted me.
    This was not what I might have hoped it to be. In her
    letter (no current married name, phone, or address)
    only a post office box with her maiden name. She
    felt that since she became a mother she especially
    wanted to contact me. Baby photos of her twin girls
    born in 2015 did not have names or birthdate on the
    back. And, she wanted no mention of the Bible or
    the past. The last time we talked over
    the phone I finally asked her if she was a lesbian.
    She laughed loudly, said no, and from that time on
    never contacted me even though I reached out to her.
    This time I answered her letter as honestly as I could.
    She did not ask for forgiveness. However, I told her
    I could forgive A LOT but I can not forgive her being
    a homosexual. I wrote that Yahweh cannot either.
    It’s NOT His Way or the highway. It’s His Way or
    NO WAY! It seems that I was tested AGAIN on
    what I would say to her. Homosexuality is a curse
    that seems to have plagued my family of origin.
    I believe that parents that treat their children with
    this perversion as “NORMAL” and even spiritually
    saved are just as LOST as their children! I empathize
    with any of you confronted by this problem.

    Feast of Weeks (First Fruits) is June 4. The saints
    sealed in Revelation 14 are called “First Fruits”.
    The test of “The Mark of the Beast” (Enforcement
    of Christianity) may happen at this time of year and
    maybe even THIS year! No, I am not ready but
    Yahweh IS!

    ETERNAL SURVIVAL BLESSINGS FOR YAHWEH’S
    SAINTS!

    • 4 yahweh

      I am so sorry you are having a heartbreaking problem with your daughter. at least there was some kind of contact. I hope and pray that whatever you said was as a seed planted in her heart

      • Marianne, thank you for your concern. If anything, my life alone proves that were are now living in THE LAST OF DAYS. In these last few years I have been made aware that also my mother (deceased), my niece, and my first husband were and are homosexuals. Possibly more like my son. I do not have any contact now with any relatives. My daughter contacting me was the first time any of them have written or called me. I knew that some day she would and possibly not for the best of reasons. Early on my experiences with her were difficult. Her words and actions to me were hurtful. She wrote that she was seeing a therapist so she may have emotional problems besides the moral ones. I do pray for her when I think about her because someone once told me, “They cannot outrun our prayers!”

      • I hope and pray that whatever you said was as a seed planted in her heart, AMEN and AMEN ,

        i heard many testimonies that gay people are set free by God ,
        no longer gay. keep prophesy over your daughter. speak live over her, speak life over dry bone. they will turn back to God,
        their life will be changed by God ,

        • Hi q. Thank you for your response. Yes, Yahweh’s Spirit dictates what I answer. She wrote that she did not want to talk about the past or religion (the Bible). Since she abruptly left my life over 20 years ago that’s ALL we have to talk about. Yahweh has set us ALL free through faith in His Son Yahshua. We have to set our own selves free from sin by choosing to do so. She once was immersed confessing faith in Yahweh and His Son Yahshua. Possibly the only REAL reason for her contacting me was for me to pray for her two babes who with homosexual parents would certainly be lost. I do not even know if those children are real. She has lied to me before and uses many names from what I have seen on The Web. We are ALL being tested and tried!

          • Hi, Sister,

            use the bible verses to pray over your daughter and grandchildren. daily confess God’s word over them.

            do not pay much attention on what their current situation (sin or not }

            just pray the Word of God over them and bless their life

            the drybone will come to life . you will see the result.,

            God Bless

            this minister ‘s prodigal son come home after 30 years !! she prayed 30 years !!!!

  5. 👏thanks marriane…you could not have said it better.so true.not much time left for us.the king is coming and as we anxiously await his coming we must see that we are ready for him…by the grace of God if there is one thing we can do is get ourselves ready.

  6. Hi Marianne, your article is very awesome !

    http://www.livingfree.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=561:when-people-hurt-you&catid=86:general-articles&Itemid=187

    i am learning this lesson

  7. Amen. Great post. Paul says, “but be filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms [Psalm 103] and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord;”

    Now read Malachi 3:16 into chapter 4. See Psalm 33 and 34. It’s a daily application of being filled with the Spirit; Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.”

    The fear of the Lord is His treasure (Isaiah 33:6). Fear = reverence in worship.
