Are You Prepared?
WHAT A DAY, THAT WILL BE
WHEN MY JESUS, I SHALL SEE
O' WHAT A GLORIOUS DAY THAT WILL BE
[Words & Music: Jim Hill, Ben Speer Music ICG]
These words from the Hymn have played many a time in my mind as of of late. I sing these words over and over, never tiring of them, because I long indeed for the day, when my Jesus I shall see.
The world is a stage Elvis Presley once said in a song many years ago. The chess board is set, the pieces are moving, it is only time before the things of this world will fall, as does the king and queen on the board. All the things in the political, and economic world are pointing to a collapse of this worlds system. Most of the world is aligning itself against Israel as prophesied in scripture. When this happens, a one world government along with a one world religion and a one world currency will be put in place by the Anti-Christ empowered by Satan himself. All this also is prophesied in scripture. Whether you believe it or not, it is not hard to see this is true. It is coming and it would appear that the Lord will come to call His own home to Him soon. Whether, 2 to 5 to ten years we know not for sure. But, the writing is on the wall.
All this inspires me more than ever to be forever prepared for His coming. like the story of the ten virgins in scripture.
1Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.
2And five of them were wise, and five were foolish.
3They that were foolish took their lamps, and took no oil with them:
4But the wise took oil in their vessels with their lamps.
5While the bridegroom tarried, they all slumbered and slept.
6And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.
7Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps.
8And the foolish said unto the wise, Give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.
9But the wise answered, saying, Not so; lest there be not enough for us and you: but go ye rather to them that sell, and buy for yourselves.
10And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came; and they that were ready went in with him to the marriage: and the door was shut.
11Afterward came also the other virgins, saying, Lord, Lord, open to us.
12But he answered and said, Verily I say unto you, I know you not.
13Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
(King James Version)
Some were prepared for the Lord's coming, and some were not.
This gives me and inspires me more than ever to live a more justly and godly life, so that when He comes, I will be prepared and welcomed and not ashamed.
So so as I often do allow me to encourage you again with these words:
Luk 21:28 And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
(Both King James Version)
The day is coming, are you prepared?
