The Lord has been speaking to my
heart, continually, to be ready, watchful and prepared. Ready for what, is
If you have been a Christian for
any length of time you have heard the teaching that Jesus is coming again. There will be a time when we will be “caught up to meet the Lord in the air.” The
Bible declares there is also coming a great and dreadful time when the people
on the earth will have a season of tribulation such as man cannot comprehend
and most do not want to consider. Following that will be a judgment time that
must be faced by everyone who has not received Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
If you stay tuned into studying
the Word and Biblical studies, you will hear over and over again, to look for
His coming as there are signs in God’s
heavenly “billboard” that
the earth is getting ready for a mighty shifting and change.
You might say, “I’ve heard that for years but
it won’t happen in my life time.” My
friend, please be careful and warned about your days here on this planet we
call earth. Sickness and accidents have
a way of coming upon us like a sudden windstorm and there can be a moment when
you are simply “not ready” to go
out into eternity.
There is a wave of complacency
within the body of Christ today. Many go
through the same everyday routine of work and schedule without a thought of God
and His will. The statistics of young
people who believe in moral absolutes is frighteningly low. Moral decay has hit
our country like an unwanted tornado. There are those who go to church out of a
sense of duty, but their life has fallen into careless living and hardness of
heart which can lull one into a false sense of security.
We are called to repent from our
sin and turn to Jesus. Repentance means
to turn from the direction we are going and go toward God. Seek …the
LORD while he may be found, call … upon him while he is near.* God is Love, but friends He is a Holy God.
Am I seeking to install a fear
tactic? No precious friend. Jesus is the answer for our life. He is the ONLY One and Way whereby we
receive salvation. He, alone, can change the heart. Do you know the word salvation means “to rescue?” That is what Jesus does. He rescues us from our sin and selfishness
and transports us into living as a “new
and only then, can we be ready for whatever comes and whatever our present
circumstance holds before us. The hope
of eternity carries us into a joy that only comes from knowing Christ as
Savior. It ushers us into a true
Your purpose for living has a
higher call on it. If we are obedient to
the Biblical command to be ready, it will carry us with a supernatural peace,
love and joy. When we spend time in the
living book of knowledge, our Bible, The Author (God) is present, speaking to us on every page. He pours out His love, like liquid gentleness
over our needy souls, to bring us into a higher plane of living.
When we have accepted Jesus as
Lord, He desires to work through us to teach us how to be prepared in our life.
To practice praise, thanksgiving and worship will lift our mind and soul to a
higher level of living such as this life can never give. It will chase away the anxieties of life,
discouragement, depression and fears that want to overwhelm us and pull us into
If you are too busy to read and
study your Bible, then as the saying goes, you are just too busy!
we glad that the Lord uses imperfect people?
That is His mercy and love. If it were not so, I wouldn’t be writing this. Jesus gives me the Word and I go to
the computer and write it out. It is not me, but the Holy Spirit who lives
within me and teaches me. I want to
share what He teaches me with others.
Be blessed with family and friends
during the Thanksgiving holiday.
PS: A word of praise and thanksgiving. Through the power of Scriptures and prayer,
with natural therapy, the Lord brought me out of 3 1/2 months of constant pain from a
herniated back. I am now pain free!
