Missing the Mark
I am pretty sure that for most of us, we are missing the mark when it comes to understanding what is about to take place. Jesus is returning and returning sooner than we think. How are we missing the mark? We have let our focus go to what is happening in the world instead of what God is about to do.
I overheard a conversation the other day and the people who were talking were saying that there is no way the world will never come to an end and that it is just hype by Christians to get people to come to their church. I could not set by and let them think that way so I had to interrupt and tell them the truth. I asked them if either one of them read the Bible to which the answer was no. I asked them then if they have ever heard the stories from the bible about then end of time. One said that she had but the other said that she had never been to church
I proceeded to tell them that the stories of the Bible are true and that Heaven and Hell are real. God one day is going to return and when he does the earth will be destroyed with some going one way and others going another. I mentioned the fact that I don’t care if you go to my church or anyone else’s church for that matter of fact, but I do care that you heed the words of the Lord and listen to what is going on. I told them if they don’t believe in Christ it is between them and God but, if they don’t believe because they think he doesn’t exist, then they should read the book, A Case for Christ, and even better that they read the Bible.
They told me thank you for your concern but that is only your opinion. I left them with one scripture for them to ponder on. That scripture is Matthew 24:36, "But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” And when he returns, every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. I also left them with this, John 14:6, “I am the way and the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through me” and I told them that if they would seriously want to be in Heaven when time ends, through Jesus is the only way. I went about my way thinking to myself, these women don’t have a clue and I just hope they at least heart just a portion and will seriously consider what I said.
Like those two women, many may know what is about to take place but the enemy has clouded our thoughts and minds making us think that nothing is going to happen. We are missing the mark. Our minds are now focused on what the professional football players are saying and doing (me included) rather than the fact that the Bible tells us to keep our focus. Luke 21:34-36 "Be on your guard--see to it that your minds are never clouded by dissipation or drunkenness or the worries of this life, or else that day may catch you like the springing of a trap--for it will come upon every inhabitant of the whole earth. You must be vigilant at all times, praying that you may be strong enough to come safely through all that is going to happen, and stand in the presence of the Son of Man."
Jesus is going to return and there is nothing we can do to stop it. Like Peter in the boat when he walked on water, we need to keep our eyes on Jesus because he is the only thing that matters. He will return so don’t miss the mark. Look at the signs and pray and seek God for Salvation, for Deliverance, for Direction, for His hand to be upon us. Soon and very soon we are going to experience the presence of God and if you don’t know him, the results will be catastrophic. Jesus made a way and that way will lead you to the Father. If you don’t know him today, then there is no time like right now to know that you know. Simply ask Jesus to forgive you, surrender to him and you will know and experience Heaven. Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father except through me” John 14:6. You want to see the Father then you need to have that relationship with Jesus. There is no other way
Make it a point to focus on what the Bible and God is saying and don’t be one who will Miss the Mark.
God bless you and my prayers are with you.
You Had Better Be Ready
It never seems to cease, people saying that the reason we are getting inundated with floods and fire is because of those people who voted for Trump. Friends, let me tell you one thing, we have a lot more to worry about rather than this person was elected or that person was elected. We need to worry about our souls and whether we know Christ as our Lord and Savior.
People who voted for Trump are in no way responsible for what is happening. God is not allowing these things to continue because someone voted for Trump. He is allowing these things to happen to get our attention. If you are one of those people griping and complaining, saying these things are happening because of Trump, then you need to grow up and look deep inside yourself to determine, do I know Jesus as my Lord and Savior?
Whether you believe it or not we are living in the last days and you can be certain that soon and very soon the world will no longer be what it is today. A few thousand years ago, God destroyed a pair of cities Sodom and Gomorrah for their lewdness and their disobedience. If you look at our culture today, we have become the modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah. People could care less about others, they can only think of themselves and their opinions, nothing else matters. They have become lovers of themselves, of money etc... The bible says this in 2Timothy 3:1-5, But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: 2 For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, 3 unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, 4 traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!
The things that are happening today are not because of who you voted for or who caused this or that, no, they are happening for a reason and that reason is, God wants to get your attention and to assure you that unless you turn from the world and turn to him, these things will destroy you and you will be forever lost.
Serving God is not a joke, it is pure delight and to know that one day he looked down on a sinner like me and had compassion and saved me is a testament to his love for us. God is giving us a chance to repent and turn from our wicked ways and turn to him. If we will do these things he will save us. Save us from sin, save us from the destruction that is about to end the world as we know it. Time is running very short, and you need to prepare and know that you know you have received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. You can say what you want about me, but this I know, I love Jesus with all of my heart and soul, nothing can change my mind because one day he touched my heart and had compassion on me and accepted me into his kingdom. He changed my life, he healed my mind and my body. He has healed me from a heart attack, cancer and a stroke. He promised me that he would never leave me nor forsake me and to that he has remained constant. I will tell everyone about the love of God. Some will listen some will not. Those who listen will be changed forever and those who will not will be lost forever. The choice is yours. God is giving every person of the world one last opportunity to surrender to him. Choose this day who you will serve, as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Joshua 24:2,15.
God bless every one of you. My prayer is that you will choose to head these words and start seeking out the face of God and he will make the path clear.
An Evangelist called to preach the gospel all over the world. To lay hands on the sick and to prophecy to everyone. Reaching out to the world that all may be saved.
