This is one of those blog posts where my heart is so full but my vocabulary is so limited. So many things to be said in so little words. But i trust the holy spirit. He will communicate it to you the way he wants.
I woke up to bad news today. Dr Myles Monroe, his wife and his daughter as well as other ministry staff, died in a plane crash.
48 school children killed and several others wounded in a boko haram bomb attack in Yobe State.
ISIS is still terrorizing the middle east and Christians are being driven from their homes and getting killed.
All this reports came at me like an unexpected tidal wave and i was left reeling in the aftershocks.
Intense sadness, a feeling of hopeless came over me and i didn’t know what to say. So i prayed and I asked God; when will it get better? When is it going to end? How can we end this? Please help us lord!
And he said i have already helped you. I have provided a way out. Whoever takes it, will be saved. He who ignores the way, chooses death and destruction.
And then he showed me. He showed me the death, the insurgencies, the disasters, are not about to end. Things are not going to get better. They will get worse. Why?
Because the script has already been written. Everything we’re going on, is a fulfillment of prophecy.
Matthew 24:4-14 (NLT)
“Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately.
Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come. “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed.
You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers. And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people.
Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved.
And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.”
Look around you. Are these things happening or not? ( you know the answer!)
The signs are more visible. The end is very near. This is not a comforting blog post. It’s a warning. Are you ready?
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.
You’re a Christian. You go to church. Perhaps you even serve in church, you volunteer at several charities and you don’t smoke, drink or fornicate. You look Good on paper. But how is your heart? Have you really made a total conscious commitment to Christ? have you submitted absolute control to him or is it only on Sundays that he’s in charge? What’s the motive behind everything you do?
Things are going to get worse. A time when you’re either living the life or you’re not. No sitting on the fence. You can’t have a Christian lifestyle and a non Christian life. You can’t serve Jesus and fit in with the world.
The system of this world is on the verge of collapse. Jesus is the anchor. It’s either you hold on to him or you perish with the world.
Make your choice today. Please choose life.
