Next weirdly enough I found myself constantly thinking and looking up Revelation and all the things that are going to happen. Honestly I have been nauseous all day. The things this world will go through is terrifying.
I encourage you to read it, it's interesting.
(this is were the post starts)
This Post is mostly for Men but Women hopefully you can find something out of it.
Here are a few verses to read before I start.
Luke 17:26-31 ….just as it occurred in the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of man. They were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage, until that day when Noah entered into the ark and the flood arrived and DESTROYED THEM ALL. Likewise just as it occurred in the days of Lot., they were eating, they were drinking, they were buying, they were selling, they were planting, …but on the day that Lot came out of Sodom it rained fire and sulfur from heaven and DESTROYED THEM ALL. The same way it will be on that day when the son of man is to be revealed. On that day let the person that is on the house top but whose valuable things [jewels] are in the house not come down to pick these up
Luke 17:32 and the person out in the field, let him likewise not return to the things behind…
|Luke 17:34 in that night two will be in one bed, the one will be taken along but the other will be abandoned|
Matthew 24:40 Then will two men be in the field: one will be taken away, and one left behind
Luke 17:36 Two men shall be in the field, the one shall be taken and the other left.
Matthew 24:41-42 Two shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord does come
Rev 3:3 I will come upon you as a thief.
Matthew 24:43-44 But know this, that if the good man of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
So it is promised that he is coming back and we will not have time to think or get right with God then. We have to start now this is serious stuff . Lets look at the nest part of Luke after what i gave it says in verse 32-33 Remember what happened to Lot's wife! 33 If you cling to your Life, you will lose it and if you let your life go you WILL SAVE IT!
I actually just read these two verses for the first time ever.
I can't get 33 out of my head lets see if I waste my time on myself then what am I gaining oh yeah Death or nothing in a more simple term..... oh brother that sounds fun. BUT if I forget about myself it will be saved. That sounds to complicated for us because it seems that every day America is turning into a it's all about me place. All we care about is what am I gonna wear.... When do I get this or that.... Why does she(he) get this and not ME.... I see it everyday even in My own family. That is a sad statement that I can't comprehend.
If you continue reading after that and then some of the verses up top you will find that not everyone in the World is coming when The "Rapture" happens. ( I can hear you saying oh boy he said Rapture......)
Why yes, yes I did say it.
(NLT) Understand this: If a Homeowner knew exactly when a burglar(Thief) was coming, he would keep watch and not permit his house to be broken into. 44 You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected.
Guys this is directly to you.
Lets do some role playing here.
So normally head of the house hold is also the Man of the house
Burglar or Thief
Rev 3:3b says this exactly.....I will come to you unexpectedly and sudden as a thief.
So we have Christ as the thief
Lets put this into some context now.
Men if you are not Constantly preparing your family for Christ then the next thing that will happen is your family will be "Broken" or other words some may be Left Behind.
Its all over the place this is real Guys... There is no mercy
