There are times when it is proper to belabor a point.
BUT, there are other times when the best course of action is “short and sweet.”
Today is one of those days which calls for short and sweet.
IF the reader only remembers that which is tagged “WHAT TO REMEMBER,” the article will be EVEN shorter and sweeter.
And so, without a lot of build-up, three VERY IMPORTANT points EVERYONE should remember about the last days–which are fast approaching.
1- The world and those who dwell upon it have a saying that MANY believe with all of their hearts.
“It’s not WHAT you know, it’s WHO you know.”

During the last days, the ONLY time this will be true is IF the person knows Jesus.
Otherwise, nothing could be further from the truth.
There are those who have spoken AT LENGTH about who they know; who that person knows; or, how much money or power that person has.
NONE of that will matter during the last days.
NO ‘connections‘ will help you: those ‘connections’ will be too busy trying to save themselves.
EARTHLY money and power will have a COMPLETELY different value than it does now–when the earth is ruled by men.
WHAT TO REMEMBER:
If you don’t know Jesus, why not?
What is to be gained by waiting?

2- “This too shall pass” is a saying popular with the world.
Many times, it is said to remind one’s self that present troubles will EVENTUALLY pass away, perhaps to become something BETTER.
During the last days, however, God is taking a personal interest in his creation. And that interest involves all of those who forfeited opportunities to join the kingdom of heaven.
It also involves the few who availed themselves of God’s mercy.
There will be NO passing away for eternal torments.
Eternal torments are eternal.
WHAT TO REMEMBER:
There will be NO comfort for the wicked–OR foolish–among men.
“There is no peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”
3- A person can ONLY make a decision to follow Jesus UNTIL A) he dies; or, B) Jesus returns.
After EITHER of those events take place, the decision will be made for you.
WHAT TO REMEMBER:
Do NOT delay.

Short and sweet.
WILL the reader remember these three things?
It is not YET too late: there is still a little 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.”
A Reminder: The Gospel is Simple
