Do..."You" know Him???
“God bless this mess I've made” doesn't work.
“God forgive and wipe clean this mess I've made,” does, as we repent.
During a daily conversation with a fellow believer and a dear friend who is looking for our Blessed Hope every second, she stated to me, after yet another harrowing day of bad news and headlines, “I am so weary of the troubles of this world. It doesn’t even seem real now. To me, Heaven is MORE real than life on this earth.”
So profoundly true. I feel many believers in Jesus Christ are feeling this way now as we watch the world spiral downward and see things we never thought would happen. The longing for our permanent home becomes more real, more tangible, more desirable and almost unbearable. We yearn to finally, finally be home with our Lord who has gone and prepared our place for us. We dream about thanking Him for suffering and dying in OUR place, for OUR sins.
How we look forward to celebrating His resurrection with Him. We cannot wait to finally bow at His feet and worship His name and sing His praises. He IS our Savior. He IS our Lord. He IS our security. He is MORE real than this world.
Do you know Him?
Do your friends and loved ones know Him?
If you invite Jesus to be the Lord of your life, and walk daily with Him, repent of your sins and seek His Face, your name is written in His Book of Life and your destiny is to be with Him in the safety and security of His loving arms for all of eternity! Security is THAT simple! And knowing your eternity is secure in Jesus Christ is pure bliss. There is no other word for it. It is lockdown. It is a done deal.
Time is running out. Maybe you have heard this before, but the Bible promises that Jesus will return to this earth and the signs that we are to look for are blaring at us like a freight train tearing down the tracks. The yellow light is just about to blink to red and your eternity will become written in stone. Are you ready? Is your eternal security intact?
I feel a sense of urgency like never before. I feel like I have very little time to wrap up the loose ends of the things God has given me to accomplish before He sends Jesus to take His followers out of this world. It almost seems like God is wrapping things up too, doesn’t it?
Every chance I get to witness to someone I care for is an enormous relief—one step closer, to the reward of Heaven that God has promised His children. It is hard to explain, but if you are watching and listening for Jesus, you know what I mean. We have gotten to that point now. We have disconnected. We have let it go. Heaven IS more real than what is being dealt to us by the prince of this world (Satan). It is the reason for our indifference and our discontent with our earthly abode.
