“Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.
(Matthew 25:13 (NIV))
I have been reading testimonies and watching videos about visions that people have been having, and I honestly have to ask a very important question.
Are you ready?
Think about that for a moment in context with the fact that you can’t know the day or the hour. That means that you must be ready at any moment. Jesus could come next year, next week, tomorrow or at this very moment!
If Jesus called His church to Him at this very moment, would you be ready? Would you be gone in the twinkling of an eye, or would you be left behind?
Each day I see things happening that make me wonder what is going on and exactly where we are in God’s perfect timeline. Many people believe that things are lining up in such a way that could mean that the times foretold of in Daniel and in Revelation are about to happen. They also believe that the events that many people refer to as the Rapture are also able to occur soon because of the way things are lining up. Many of the experts are saying that for these events to line up again like they are lining up now is so unlikely that it is impossible to say if they ever would align like this again.
Israel is back in their land.
There are wars and rumors of wars. Terrorism is higher than ever.
The Temple is ready to be rebuilt.
All of the nations are turning against Israel.
Good is called evil and evil is called good.
There are more earthquakes than ever.
Faith in Jesus is ridiculed publicly.
These are but a few of the overviews of things that I see. I want to stress that I do not profess to know, but I can see the signs.
“There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”
(Luke 21:25-28 (NIV))
What do you see?
