Matthew 24:50,51 (KJV)
50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,
51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Isaiah 13:19-21 (KJV)
19 And Babylon, the glory of kingdoms, the beauty of the Chaldees’ excellency, shall be as when God overthrew Sodom and Gomorrah.
20 It shall never be inhabited, neither shall it be dwelt in from generation to generation: neither shall the Arabian pitch tent there; neither shall the shepherds make their fold there.
21 But wild beasts of the desert shall lie there; and their houses shall be full of doleful creatures; and owls shall dwell there, and satyrs shall dance there.
There is a sense of urgency to get things right before God. If you delay the day of your repentance, then tomorrow may not come.
Oh Lord, I pray that people are waiting and watching for Your coming. May every person that says that they believe in You, truly live out their faith and trust in You until the end. It is common now-a-days to hear people say that they are Christians, when truly they are living a life of sin and addiction. It is because repentance is not taught at all or not as often as it should that people think that they are good with you, as all people are sinners. However, we both know that these false pastors and teachers are only leading people astray. And if the people and teachers do not wake up to their sins, then their souls will continue in darkness and be destroyed. What people are forgetting, Lord, is their time with You in prayer and reading Your Word. If only these two things were continued on a day-to-day basis, people would be loving You over the world. They would have made a side to follow You and keep Your commandments and not sin. And because their trust would be in You, You would be their defense and their shield. Yes Lord, this is missing in the hearts of too many people and I am saddened by it. It truly makes me wonder what people are thinking now-a-days. I just pray that a line will be drawn in people's lives. That You will come and convict them of their sins and that they will react to it in a positive way. Then will they find Your grace and forgiveness, before their time is done. Otherwise, their future is bleak. Lord, many more souls be saved, in Your Holy Name. Amen.
