On 26th December 2003, over 40,000 were reported killed in the city of Bam in an earthquake. On the 26th of December 2004, approximately 230,000 people were dead or still missing in Southeast Asia. October 8th 2005, Kashmir earthquake kills about 80,000 people. I don’t want to go any further because it’s heartbreaking to see our fellow human beings killed by disasters man has no control over. The point I want to make from this is; none of these and others can be compared to what is about to happen. To be forewarned is to be forearmed
The hour is far spent and very soon, the King of kings will come for those who chose to live for him. The great day of the Lord will be a dreadful day. Who can stand it? In Malachi 4:1 God said “Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and that day that is coming will set them on fire”
A child of God, that day is coming when God’s wrath would be upon ungodly people. A day that things you heart desire today would worth nothing to you. That day will come like a thief according to 2 Peter 3:10 and the heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. If God did not spare ungodly people in the days of Noah, and did not spare those who did evil in Sodom and Gomorrah, He will definitely not spare this generation, considering the fact that He sent His son so that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but have eternal life.
Life worth living when man realizes the purpose of Jesus in his daily life; When Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin. You cannot sin because the seed of sin is not found in you. Satan is deceiving many today; he is shifting people’s focus from Christ second coming. Today, people worry much about what to eat, drink, wear, etc that is why most preachers tend to focus on Prosperity messages instead of messages that would make us or keep us watching as we await the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. If you do not take care, worrying will make you do things that would hinder you from making it through the narrow gate. God has already made provisions for our needs. Worrying means; doubting God’s Power to perform.
Dear friends, in the last times, there will be scoffers who will follow their own ungodly desires. These are the men who divide you, who follow mere natural instincts and do not have the Spirit.
But you, dear friends, build yourselves up in your most holy faith and pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in God’s love as you wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ to bring you to eternal life. Be merciful to those who doubt; snatch others from the fire and save them.
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.
“THAT DAY” Can You Escape?
