Behold, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to everyone according to what he has done.
(Revelation 22:12 (NIV))
I don’t know if you have been keeping up with all of the things going on in the world. The Shemitah, the blood moons, the harbingers, the papal visit, the dreams and visions that are running rampant, the world financial crisis, ISIS, CERN and many other things all point to something happening. Things are reaching a boiling point very rapidly.
I realize that the Bible says that no man knows the hour or the day, but I want to ask you a simple question, If Jesus were to return for His true church this very day, would you be ready?
Let’s look at this with a few quick questions.
Are you fearful of what may happen in this world and in your life, or do you have peace in knowing that God is in control?
For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.
(2 Timothy 1:7 (NIV))
Are you timid? Are you fearful, or do you stand firm on the promises that are yes in Christ?
Do you love the world? Do you cling to your possessions and your position?
Here comes the big question. Are you afraid of death? Nobody in their right mind wants to die, but are you confident in knowing what will happen to you when the time comes?
No one knows what tomorrow may hold, but we can rest assured that we know who holds tomorrow.
Are you ready if tomorrow brings something that you don’t expect?
