Do NOT Wait Until the Last Minute to Put Your Trust In the LORD

LAST MINUTE

“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.”
–Proverbs 3:5

Trusting in the LORD brings a person ALL KINDS of benefits: some in this present life; some, in the eternal life to come.

HOWEVER, for a number of different reasons, a great number of folks put off putting their trust in the LORD.

Perhaps it is because they are “too busy” and tell themselves that they will get around to doing it “later“?

Perhaps it is because they tell themselves that it REALLY isn’t as important as some make it out to be?

Perhaps it is because they feel they have MORE IMPORTANT things to do?

There are those who will NEVER–for whatever reasons they may have–put their trust in the LORD.  Most of these folks feel that there is NO other who will look after their needs like they would.

BUT these are deceived and will reap the wages of deception.

“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.”
–Proverbs 14:12

Some folks really do have the best of intentions concerning this circumstance, but one thing leads to another and, before you know it, they are smack-dab in the middle of the end times.  They see chaos and confusion unfolding on every side of their existence WITHOUT a reliable guide.

On this very important matter:

Do NOT wait.

Do NOT delay.

Do NOT procrastinate.

Depending on the LORD is a way of life and some practice will make things go more smoothly.

Do NOT wait until things are falling apart and God’s judgment is falling upon the earth and those who dwell upon it.

Turn to God NOW and be experienced at putting your trust in the LORD.

Oh, and do NOT fear man and the schemes of man.

“The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe.”
–Proverbs 29:25

Do NOT wait until the last minute to put your trust in the LORD.

What are you waiting for?

Start NOW!

Has it crossed the mind of the reader to make amends and start living his life in a NEW WAY?

What has stopped the reader from fulfilling this thought?

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.

Determining One’s Heavenly Status

CHECKING ONE'S STATUS

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.”
–John 5:24

Recently, a SHORT discussion on how to determine one’s heavenly status was entertained.

The discussion was not very long because one of the participants in the discussion gave an answer which allowed VERY LITTLE argument.

The discussion went a little like the following.

“I’ve heard you say that believers are to treat other believers differently from non-believers.  How can you tell FOR SURE a believer from a non-believer?”

“How can you tell?  Oh, it’s fairly easy–particularly the ones who congregate in the Sunday social clubs we call the churches.  Just listen to them talk for a few moments.  That will tell you all you need to know.”

“How?”

“Well, believers focus on the things of the NEXT life.  UNbelievers focus on the things of this world.”

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.”
–1JOHN 2:15-16

“UNbelievers talk about their jobs, what they are planning to buy, where they are going on vacation, how their kids are doing in school, what the church is serving to eat next: the things of this present world. Believers focus on the NEXT life, KNOWING that this life is so short; that this life is only a test of where you spend the NEXT one.  That’s how you can tell.”

“Sounds easy.”

“It is–IF you do it.  Most do NOT do it, preferring to get sucked into the conversations rather than determining what those conversations indicate.”

“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
–Matthew 7:21-23

“Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.”
–Ecclesiastes 12:13

ABOUT WHICH is the reader more concerned: this present life or the one to come?

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 Return of Jesus Christ Does NOT Have To Be the End of the World

END OF THE WORLD MOVIES: 5 End of the World Apocalyptic movies

A FRIENDLY END TIMES REMINDER

The world babbles on and on and on and on about how the return of Jesus Christ and the climax of human history is the ‘end of the world.’

It is NOT.

Though it has been pointed out BEFORE in these pages, it is something which bears repeating.

The return of Jesus Christ is ONLY the ‘end of the world’ for the WICKED and FOOLISH.

For the people of God?

Not so much.

“And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.”
–Luke 1:31-33

“And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.”
–Daniel 2:44

“And I will make her that halted a remnant, and her that was cast far off a strong nation: and the LORD shall reign over them in mount Zion from henceforth, even for ever.”
–Micah 4:7

The closest that God’s Word comes to calling the last days “the end of the world” is Matthew 24:14.

“And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”

When God’s judgment becomes reality, the WICKED, FOOLISH and EVIL men will see their world–governed these many years by the prince of this world–come to an end and the kingdom of Jesus Christ (an everlasting kingdom) begin.

Those few who are members of the kingdom of heaven will then see that kingdom start and NEVER end.

ONLY IF the reader is part of the world will the return of Jesus Christ be the ‘end of the world.’

For the righteous, the return of Jesus Christ is only the beginning.

To which group would the reader rather belong?

This has been a friendly end times reminder.

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.

There Are NO Safe Havens During the Last Days

safe haven

A FRIENDLY END TIMES REMINDER

During the last days, when ALL of God’s Creation is in turmoil and chaos brought on by God’s JUDGMENT, it would do well IF the reader kept in mind that there are NO safe havens.

Actually, there are a FEW safe havens, CREATED BY GOD.  But those are few and far between.

The reader MAY need this reminder as a great many men–especially the rich and celebrated–believe that there ARE safe havens.

These men not only believe this, they have plunked their money down in order to own (what they believe to be) a place of safety in times of uncertainty.

For some reason, men believe the SAFEST places are underground: protected on all sides by tons of rock and dirt.

The prophet Isaiah described a FEW of those men, their mistaken beliefs and what happens to them during the last days in the second chapter of Isaiah.

“The word that Isaiah the son of Amoz saw concerning Judah and Jerusalem. And it shall come to pass in the last days, that the mountain of the LORD’S house shall be established in the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow unto it. And many people shall go and say, Come ye, and let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, to the house of the God of Jacob; and he will teach us of his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the LORD from Jerusalem. And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. 

“Their land also is full of silver and gold, neither is there any end of their treasures; their land is also full of horses, neither is there any end of their chariots: Their land also is full of idols; they worship the work of their own hands, that which their own fingers have made: And the mean man boweth down, and the great man humbleth himself: therefore forgive them not. Enter into the rock, and hide thee in the dust, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty.

“The lofty looks of man shall be humbled, and the haughtiness of men shall be bowed down, and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. For the day of the LORD of hosts shall be upon every one that is proud and lofty, and upon every one that is lifted up; and he shall be brought low: And upon all the high mountains, and upon all the hills that are lifted up, And upon every high tower, and upon every fenced wall, And the loftiness of man shall be bowed down, and the haughtiness of men shall be made low: and the LORD alone shall be exalted in that day. And the idols he shall utterly abolish.

“And they shall go into the holes of the rocks, and into the caves of the earth, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth. In that day a man shall cast his idols of silver, and his idols of gold, which they made each one for himself to worship, to the moles and to the bats; To go into the clefts of the rocks, and into the tops of the ragged rocks, for fear of the LORD, and for the glory of his majesty, when he ariseth to shake terribly the earth.”
–Isaiah 2:1-4, 7-10, 11-12,14-15,17-22

The second chapter of Isaiah is NOT the only place in God’s Word which paints this picture.

“And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;  And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?”
–Revelation 6:15-17

“But Jesus turning unto them said, Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.  For, behold, the days are coming, in the which they shall say, Blessed are the barren, and the wombs that never bare, and the paps which never gave suck. Then shall they begin to say to the mountains, Fall on us; and to the hills, Cover us.”
–Luke 21:28-30

SO, unless God provides the reader with a place of safety and protection–which is unlikely to happen (and impossible for the WICKED to enjoy)–there will be NONE.

This has been a friendly end times reminder.

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.

As the Last Traces of Normality Disappear, End Times Anxiety Will Increase

anxiety and fear

A FRIENDLY END TIMES REMINDER

When times are good and the living is easy, MANY men forget  the uncounted ways they make their surroundings MORE comfortable.

This softening of one’s living space happens so often, it is not only forgotten, it is forgotten how many times it occurs.

And it doesn’t matter if the space one is making more comfortable is permanent or temporary.

[The media carries MANY stories about this circumstance in temporary lodging.]

What are some of the ways a person might make add a touch of the normal to his living space to help make it more comfortable for himself?

It’s all a matter of taste and preference.

One man might add MUSIC to make his living more easy.  Another man might add ELECTRONIC or COMPUTER GAMES. A third man might ensure easy access to his FAVORITE FOOD or DRINKS. Still another might make sure that he has INTERNET ACCESS.

It depends WHAT makes that particular person comfortable and the living space he inhabits more ‘lived in.’

What happens IF these small comforts DISAPPEAR–which could easily happen for a period of time?

To those who are USED to having their comforts:

IF the electric power was off for any length of time, COMPUTER or ELECTRONIC GAMES would no longer be available.

IF the electric power was off for any length of time, MUSIC could not be played after the batteries ran out.

The same could be said of those who obsess over their CELL PHONES.  Without power, CELL PHONES are just a piece of plastic and glass that one holds on their face IF the habit is strong enough.

DOES one start their morning out with a cup of their favorite COFFEE–and perhaps a PASTRY?

IF the electric power was off for any length of time, the only way to enjoy COFFEE is IF one has access to a fire source–as in the Wild West days.

Those very small things which provide comfort are a part of each person’s ‘normality;’ of what makes that person’s living space more ‘normal’ AND more comfortable.  These small, mostly-daily comforts help make life more livable.

Gee, it sounds like a LOT of anxiety and stress could pile up IF something happened to the electric power supply.

So many of our creature comforts–as well as ‘normal’ necessities–depend on having electric power available.

Might anxiety INCREASE IF there was NO electric power?

A lot of people who don’t think very far ahead have purchased gasoline generators in case their electricity is interrupted.

Electric gasoline-powered generators are a GREAT idea–IF the power comes back on in a hurry.

BUT, one had better hope that the station where one purchases their fuel for their generator has a generator of their own: to PUMP that fuel IF the power is off for any length of time.

Just a few things the reader may want to keep in mind during the last days.

This has been another friendly end times reminder.

HAS the reader closely considered how different their life would be without the ‘small comforts?’

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.
