With tremble and fear, I wasn't really alarmed by the news widely spread I heard a month ago: "May 21, 2011 - The Judgment Day"...No, it didn't even bother me at all. What affright me was the hidden message behind that said event. Although, nobody really knows what is the exact date of Christ Jesus' second coming---even the angels in heaven...Yet, I believed that there's something behind that message. A reminder that Christ's second coming is near.
Within those moments, as the news persistently spread, I noticed that most of the people who heard were just making fun out of it, as if they were wearing a face of assurance that it really wasn't the day (they fear). A thought begun to itch in my mind-------'what if'--------in a snap.!---God changed His mind and in a sudden split second of time took those who are really faithful and passionately obey and follow Christ. Rapture. So, do you think you'll be one of them?
But God is too gracious and faithful enough to His promises------that He didn't even think about of doing that.! amazing...
Nonetheless, seeing those people's reactions appeared to me that----they're really not prepared, yet. They laughed the nuts out of it because they're scared---they're scared because they're not prepared... Well, let's face it maybe some of us are still scared because we are not prepared...
To that fact, there are might things we still struggle, and I, myself isn't exempted...
I know that we're tempted in every way, and so was Jesus-----Hebrews 4.15 Jesus understands every weakness of ours, because He was tempted in every way that we are. But He did not sin.!
In today's generation, media plays a vast part that molds young people's mind. What i'm trying to say is that-----our mind is embedded by those designs/devices which the enemy used to corrupt us, to leave so much impurities in our minds. Serves as the hindrance to our relationship with/communication to God.
But by God's gift of undeserved grace---He invited us all to confess our sins.
"I, the Lord, invite you to come and talk it over.
Your sins are scarlet red,
but they will be whiter than snow or wool."
Take this chance as long there is still.
Don't be too stubborn to refuse God's invitation.
"If you hear God's voice today, don't be stubborn!"
Hebrew 3.b 13
and you must keep on while there is still a time that can be called "today."
Chances while you're still alive are countless---but on the judgment day...I don't think so. Everything might be too late.
No sacrifices can be made for people who decide to sin after they find out about the truth.
They are God's enemies, and all they can look forward to is a terrible judgment and a furious fire.
So let's come near God with pure hearts and confidence that comes from having faith.
Let's keep our hearts pure, our consciences free from evil, and our bodies washed with clean water.
This is just all encouragement and warnings, so take the chance before it's too late...
Be prepared when the judgment comes.
P.s. It took so much confidence for me to write it down here, since you might lose interest...anyway...
1 John 4.a 6
We belong to God, and everyone who knows god will listen to us.
But the people who don't know God won't listen to us.
God Bless ya all! ^_^ xoxo
