🎤ARE YOU READY FOR ETERNITY?
Has it dawned on you yet that we are already very close to the month of December, which is the last month of the year? The mention of the month already scares some people because of the too many demands that go with the time and the danger being posed by those who want to make it quick. But I pray for you today, that instead of sorrow, joy and laughter shall be your visitors in that month and month. In place of drought, may you be blessed with plenty. Your life shall be a testimony to all God’s children. Amen.
As you wait in anticipation for the outpouring of those blessings, do not forget that that last month also serve to remind us of the end of our lives on earth. For a very long time, we have been talking about the end time and the signs that accompany it. We have been reflecting on how we can be prepared to avoid being taken unawares. How serious have you been taking all these? Or do you take them as some of those things we normally say at this period?
Jesus warns us that all that he said shall come to pass (cf. Luke 21:33) and that includes the fact that the Son of Man will come at an hour we least expect him (cf. Matt 24:42-44). Assuming that hour is now, how prepared are you?
Remember! He may be taking so much time in the eyes of man to come. But that is because he is not bound by time. He is the ancient of days. So don’t be deceived.
I pray that we may never be among the number to be left out of the kingdom in the end due to our unpreparedness. Amen.
Have a grace-filled and blessed month ahead. Peace be with you.
