Can you Imagine how you’d feel if…

Everything around us has been designed to elicit reactions from all of us. An ice cream pack will make you hungry. A test notification makes you anxious. A call from home leaves you racking your brain, trying to figure out what’s up. A call ignored by a dear friend keeps you restless all day… the list is endless.

But you know, there are some things that just thinking about them raises goose pimples on my skin and make my nape hairs stand on end. Can you think of any?

… time up.

let me give you an idea:

Can you imagine how would you feel if one day, you returned from school or work and turned on the TV to the cable new station and the latest news on air is ‘multiple disappearances have been reported all over the seven continents…’

That’s hearing rapture on cable.. that’s the worst thing that can ever happen to man his whole life. waste of existence.

Sorry to scare you, but this scared me too when I first thought of it. But God spoke to my heart: “walk before me and be though perfect. Live right, according to my words and you have nothing to fear.”

Ever heard of rapture? Do you believe in Jesus’ second coming? No? He says He’ll come again for those who are His own: for He will descend from Heaven… the dead in Christ shall rise first…and them which are alive will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-18.

So friend, we should examine our lives daily and seek to walk circumspectly as a wise person, redeeming the time because the days are evil. (eph. 5:15-17).

What I’m saying looks like greek? Get in Jesus’ boat by getting saved. Secure eternal life. settle your scores with God.

Now, don’t be afraid to put on the TV. You’re reading my blog… that’s God’s way of giving you a chance to reconsider and adjust.

Will you?

May we fly with him,

    1. I agree with you, Oluwaseun. His grace is sufficient for you. It’s God that works in us both to will (to desire) and to do (to actually live a Christ-like life) of His good pleasure. As you keep yeilding to Christ in your daily companionship, allowing Him to work His nature in u, He gives you strength that lasts. Isaiah 66:2 – but to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a contrite spirit, and trembleth at my word. God bless.
