"it is later than you think...."
This was the word that was whispered to me in the middle of the night!!!
What did it mean??
It took me awhile to figure that out.......
but after all the chaos and craziness .that 2020 has brought us....
I think that I now know...
and I think that most people know.....
If we just stop for a moment and examine all that is happening all across the world....all across our county.....and even with our personal lives.....
we know that things have changed....
OUR LIVES HAVE CHANGED......
Most people can sense that something BIG is coming.......
we can even 'feel it in the air'.....
This calls for us to re-evaluate things....
To re-evaluate the very core of our existence....
Is there a plan for our own individual lives, or are things just random and haphazard?
It is important for us to STOP for a moment
and look carefully at everything around us......because things are changing FAST!
I believe that we are getting 'wake-up calls' from heaven itself!! The physical world and the spiritual world are now COLLIDING with each other!!
We are BEGINNING TO SEE the very pages from the BOOK OF REVELATION come to pass before our very eyes!
PLAGUES (like the covd virus)
PESTILENCE (like the locust around the world)
FAMINES (the beginning of food shortages around the world)
WARS (civil war to WW3 is on the horizon)
ASTEROIDS (fly-by comets and asteroids coming)
EARTHQUAKES (they are increasing daily)
How then are we suppose to live??
These 'wake-up calls' are called 'birth-pangs' of what the Bible calls the 'last days.'
"Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom (WARS). There will be FAMINES and EARTHQUAKES in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains. " (Matthew 24:7)
Tough times are here and they will be getting tougher!
For those of us who have been 'running away' from the 'important things of life'.....it is time for us to ask ourselves some very basic, key questions.....if ever there was a time to ask ourselves, it is NOW!!
"What are you all about?"
"Who are you really?"
"What is really important in this life?
Let me tell you what I have found to be true..............
That religion does NOT solve or answer any major questions personally or of the of this world. It is a poor attempt to reach God and falls short every time!
I had searched all my life for many different kinds of ways to God.....ways to find REAL PEACE in my life. Finding the meaning of life is an important journey to go on!
My search ended when I found out about this person who gave his life for mine. This person showed me the way to God. He also loved me, even when everyone else in my life had let me down.
Through him I found out what TRUE PEACE and CONTENTMENT is. He became the ANSWER that I had been looking for.
He wasn't religious, but COMPASSIONATE. He cared about the 'little' things in my life. He has proved himself to be loving, kind, gentle, forgiving, thoughtful and dependable......how many people do you know like that???
Some of you know Him already....and if you do, then this is the time for you to draw REALLY, REALLY near to Him. Start talking to Him, and ask for the strength, wisdom and perseverance that we need now to be 'overcomers' in these last days.
"To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God." (Revelation 2:7)
If you don't know HIM......then KNOW that HE is knocking at the door of your heart RIGHT NOW, asking you to come and meet HIM personally......HE is JESUS CHRIST, the Savior of your soul.
Because 'it is later than you think'.......don't wait any longer!!! This is by far the greatest thing you will ever do!
How can you meet JESUS personally?
Two verses come to my mind to share with you:
"That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." Romans 10:9
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you" (Matthew 7:7)
This is what I did......I cried out as loud as I could!
"God, if you are there please show me!!!"
It didn't take long before He started showing me the WAY. It was more than amazing and very awesome!
If you come to Jesus and give Him your heart, He will give you that PEACE that you've been looking for. You don't have to go to church to find Him, because HE is there with you NOW.....
He is only a prayer away!!!
"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28)
"Here I am! I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in and eat with that person, and they with me." (Revelation 3:20)
JESUS paid for our sins by HIS death on the cross....
HE became the BRIDGE between us and the FATHER of CREATION.
Through HIS sacrifice, HE has given us the gift of salvation....in this life and the next!
He has come to set you and me free and to give us a life that has purpose and direction.
"I came that they might have life and that they may have it abundantly. (John 10:10)
"So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed! (John 8:36 )
Don't wait any longer to come to JESUS.....
TIME IS SHORT.......
"IT IS LATER THAN YOU THINK".....
because JESUS IS COMING BACK VERY SOON
and HE IS COMING BACK for those who believe in HIM!!!
HERE IS A SUGGESTED PRAYER TO HELP YOU START YOUR NEW JOURNEY WITH JESUS:
