My Friends, I know things seem bad at the moment, and to a degree, they are. Yet you and I know that all these things were in Prophecy. That makes things different! I want to mention one important thing that is very important for everyone to remember:
John 13:34-35 “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.”
Please notice, it says a “New Commandment.” And this is in the words of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! I try and pay little attention to the news, any news, but it is difficult to stop the news completely. Riots and destruction and, more importantly, deaths…are NOT RIGHT! These things need to stop, because it will only lead to more of the same and accomplishing nothing! Hate is of the heart, and we need to remember that the Lord God sees our Hearts! One day is coming, and the Judgments of the Lord God will be according to our Hearts.
Jeremiah 17:9-10 “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it? I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.”
The Holy Word of God is exact and straight to the point; there is no excuse, and no one is exempt! Thus, one day everyone will kneel before the Lord, and they will give an accounting of their actions while alive on earth.
Have we all forgotten that Sin is in every one of us?! Satan and his ilk will be in every nook and cranny of our lives, which is the entire reason we should be very careful of our thoughts and mindful of our actions. Every single story of the Bible deals with Sin in one person or another; no one has ever been able to sidestep that issue except Jesus Christ. We need to be on our knees every day and asking for the Lord’s Forgiveness of our Sins! This is so important to every person that stands on the Wall and is a watcher. Our Master is coming very, very, soon and we must be prepared.
We will be covered with the Blood of Jesus Christ at HIS Cross on Calvary and have our Sins removed, or we will stand at the Great White Throne Judgment and be destroyed for Eternity! That is a Fact!
We must understand, we are the Fallen Species in this world and we need Jesus Christ, probably more today than ever before! It is so important to remember.
2 Corinthians 6:2 “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, NOW is the accepted time; behold, NOW is the day of salvation.”
The Bible tells us of the Day of the Lord; it is incumbent on each of us to be ready for the Lord’s arrival; otherwise, you will not go! Everyone is very aware of whether they belong to Jesus Christ or not! That being the case, it will be a surefire day of absolute Glory or one of absolute horror! It will be a realization of where you stand with the Lord God! Everyone will know…where they are headed in Eternity! Please reread the verse above.
There may indeed be days of calm and things progressing quietly; personally speaking, I am not sure. Then all of a sudden, the Rapture of the Church of Jesus Christ (The Rapture) will take place. Born-Again Believers will be gone, and everyone will know! Be sure that the majority will not want to acknowledge this event, and they will say everything they can to discredit the Rapture having come and so many have “missed-the-boat,” if you will. One thing is for sure; they will absolutely know there is a God, and HE has just taken HIS people home. Can you imagine the chaos that will come afterwards?!
The Rapture and Death have one thing in common; no one knows when it will take place. Having said that and with the Bible as evidence to that fact, there is one question to be asked: Where will YOU be? Where will your Home in Eternity be?
Personally speaking, I do not know of anyone that WANTS to go to hell and later the Lake of Fire. And I already know for a fact that it is between you and Jesus Christ alone. But you’d better be absolutely sure of your decision, because it will be one way or the other, and there won’t be any Backing up or a chance to do it over again. That is what this Life is for in the first place!
Believe the Bible when it says your actions while alive here…are being recorded! YOU will have the chance to answer for them, and excuses will never work with a GOD that knows everything. Our Sin will either destroy us or the Blood of Jesus Christ will cover our Sin and save us. And if you have never noticed this, the Holy Word of God…is ALWAYS…one way or the other! Think about that. Trust me, it’s worth the time!
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
