And there is more! We do not have forever to live on this earth to get it right, to be authentic and not a hypocrite. These ARE urgent and fragile days. But good days! Yesterday we read two secular opinions that were in agreement: “LIVE TODAY LIKE YOU WERE DYING.” I had gotten country singer Tim McGraw and educator Randy Pausch together in the same room. I really liked their healthy advice. Today through Saturday may I direct you to a far superior perspective? One you cannot refuse.
Dear Christian, start with your most healthy human condition and then move up out of bed to Eternal Life living while still in this your same human body. Are you interested? There are four simple ETERNAL LIFE truths to help you resist the seductiveness of our generation that cause you to just float along ‘comfy or cozy in bed.’ Do not ignore the imminent coming of Jesus Christ according to Romans 13:11
Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The night is far gone, the day is at hand. So then let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light. Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarrelling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires. (ESV)
#1 Simple Truth; THE SEASON OF THE LORD’S RETURN HAS ARRIVED! I do not know the day or the hour but I do know the season. It may snow in New England this week but I do believe our season is Spring. Please understand God and time. He is not obligated to our schedule…
A little boy asked God, ‘how much is a penny in heaven?’ God answered, ‘a penny is worth a million dollars.’ The little boy asked God then, ‘how much is a second in heaven?’ God answered, ‘a second is a million years.’ The boy thought quickly and asked, ‘God can I have a penny please?’ And God said, ‘yes, just a second!’
2 Peter 3: 3 …I am stirring up your sincere mind by way of reminder, that you should remember the predictions of the holy prophets and the commandment of the Lord and Savior through your apostles, knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”For they deliberately overlook this fact, that the heavens existed long ago, and the earth was formed out of water and through water by the word of God,and that by means of these the world that then existed was deluged with water and perished. But by the same word the heavens and earth that now exist are stored up for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
Watch vigilantly, it is the season to awake out of sleep, know the times and the seasons like the Sons of Issachar (1 Chronicles 12:32…men who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do…). We are so hypnotized by the rhythms of life we cannot see the workings of the Holy Spirit in our lives. We live as if this moment has NO bearing on Eternal Life. God predicts the future and the Bible records it. Agreed, ‘scoffers will come in the last days’ but we are not fooled. We do know what season it is! THE SEASON OF THE LORD’S RETURN HAS ARRIVED…
There will be a second simple truth considered tomorrow based on Romans 13:11.
