37 “For in just a little while, the Coming One will come and not delay.38 And my righteous ones will live by faith. But I will take no pleasure in anyone who turns away.” 39 But we are not like those who turn away from God to their own destruction. We are the faithful ones, whose souls will be saved. (Hebrews 10:37-39)
Doesn’t it feel like theres something in the air today? Like theres something big coming? The days seem to go by faster and yesterday just seems like a blur now. The world seems to be in a constant state of chaos and traveling at break neck speeds toward a final conclusion.
I believe the reason for this is because Jesus is coming soon. This surely seems like the time in world history that His return was prophesied in the bible. Look around you; Right is wrong, up is down, and political correctness is trumping the word of God in todays society.
9 “Then you will be arrested, persecuted, and killed. You will be hated all over the world because you are my followers.10 And many will turn away from me and betray and hate each other. 11 And many false prophets will appear and will deceive many people. 12 Sin will be rampant everywhere, and the love of many will grow cold. (Matthew 24:9-12)
Jesus made the above statement in the book of Matthew. Does that not seem like the world we are facing today? It will only get worse until the day he returns. People have grown cold toward one another. They are killing each other just out of pure boredom. They put no thoughts into their words so they spill out garbage. Sin is running rampant today just as Jesus foretold. Christians are being persecuted more and more everyday. The world is learning a politically correct way to push us out.
I could go on and on about the signs of the times that we are living in. Please be prepared. He is coming soon and His reward is with Him to give to those who live Him.
Verse of the day:
27 For as the lightning flashes in the east and shines to the west, so it will be when the Son of Man comes. (Matthew 24:27)
Challenge of the day:
Today I challenge you to think back to when you were a kid. Do you remember the television shows that you watched and the radio programing that you listened to as a child? Now compare those shows with the programing you see on television today. I believe this will really give you a better perspective on how fast the world has changed and how close we are to the Lords return.
