Failure to Prepare

Prepare Now!

One of the most frequently-asked questions–particularly by the heathen–is“How much time do you think we have left?”

A close second is “What can I do to get ready?”

The answer is usually along the same lines:

“Get prepared.” 

“Prepare yourself.”

“Don’t wait. Make preparations NOW.”

It is at this point that it becomes apparent that the non-believers and believers have different ideas about what “prepare” means.

Non-believers really think that “prepare” means to prepare PHYSICALLY.

Buy extra food.

Stock up on various amenities of everyday life.

Purchase a gun and some ammunition.

But NO amount of physical preparation will prepare the non-believer for what is to come upon the earth.

To the non-believer, “prepare” basically means “Become a prepper.

To the believer, to prepare for the end times is to prepare spiritually according to God’s Word.

Two completely different points of view; two COMPLETELY different courses of action.

So, when the believer is talking to the non-believer about “preparation,” it is very important to spell out what the believer means when he says to prepare.

And that is where the conversation will likely end.

Non-believers have been taught from an early age–particularly the church folk–that the Bible is NOT a book for modern times.

HOWEVER, it is important to communicate EXACTLY what the meaning of “prepare” means.

Otherwise, a failure to prepare MAY end up being a failure to communicate. Which means that the non-believer will prepare in a manner which will be totally unproductive and will NOT prepare him for the end times.

Preparing physically for the end times is, in reality, a real failure to prepare.

DOES the reader think of physical matters whenever he hears to the word “Prepare”?

It is not YET too late: there is still time to change direction (repent), place your faith (hope) for the future entirely on Jesus Christ and enter the kingdom of heaven.

THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16
