Do You Know Jesus Christ as Your Lord, Savior, and King?
Ww are living in a very volatile and dangerous time of world history. Events in society, nature, geopolitics, and government are changing fast and many people are not keeping a watchful eye on what’s occurring around them. The Middle East is seemingly on fire, the global economy is failing unlike ever before, mass migrations of people are causing severe problems in the infrastructure of societies. Nature for sure seems to be signaling something … perhaps the Lord God Almighty is trying to tell us to wake up and get right with His Son. The Book of Revelation calls out many terrible things that will befall sinful and unrepentant mankind in the last days, which I believe, are right in front of us. So what do we do? What do we believe? This, my friends, is where your faith, hope, and trust in the Lord must kick in and direct your life. We must ask Jesus to increase our faith in these last to the last days; as we see events signal His soon return and the calamities that will occur.
“And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. 6- And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.” -Luke 15:5-6 (KJV)
The times are getting and will get very tough. So it’s extremely important that you know exactly who and what you put your faith in. If you count on your family and friends to save you and shore up your faith, you are dead wrong. They will fail you just like the things of this world. Therefore, you must put your faith in the Lord Jesus for He is eternal, He is real and He will never leave you or forsake you (Heb 13:5). You must know today that if things started to go south around you, who would you look to or turn to for help. Facing this fact while things here in the US are somewhat stable, for now, is prudent and scriptural. You must practice a daily lifestyle of faith as written in Heb 11:6, for this pleases the Lord.
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” -Heb 11:6 (KJV)
As the days ramp up in difficulty after difficulty across the entire spectrum of our lives, we must know the hope that we as Christians have within us. The times will get very harsh and terrible. If you are wishfully thinking otherwise or have chosen to keep your head buried firmly in the sand, you have not read your Bible! It’s now time to put into practice this hope thing that we’ve heard about it time and time again in church. You have heard it; for some, it’s been a ‘concept’ and scripture verse here and there. The time is coming folks, where it will have to be a very present reality in your faith. For without this hope, this hope that a Christian must possess in the Lord Jesus, you will be likely swept away in deception and deceit and may very well be lost. These times are coming in like a flood – it’s time to be rock solid in your hope in the Lord. Even now people everywhere are being lied to and deceived in the areas of politics and religion. Therefore, it is imperative that we know that our blessed hope is in Christ and He is coming again to take us from here to His home in heaven. This is fundamental to the Christian faith. Do you hold on to this daily?
“Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;” -Heb 6:19 (KJV)
What’s your security in today? Do you trust your job? Your youth? Your health? Your wealth? How about your friends and family? How much time do you spend with these types of things versus how much time do you spend with Jesus: in prayer, in meditation, and reading His word – the Bible, and in knowing Him? “He that trusteth in his riches shall fall: but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.” -Prov 11:28 (KJV). Our trust in God’s provision must be foremost in our minds as the days progress. He alone will provide for us but we must trust in Him and lean not onto our own understanding and other resources.
“This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the Lord.” -Jeremiah 17:5 (NLT)
Folks, it’s time to think about these things seriously with a clear mind and tender heart. The times ahead will prove you either a Christian or a fake. And unfortunately, many will fall for they have not sought the Lord in their lives nor spent the quiet time with Him in strengthening and bolstering their faith, hope, and trust in Him. If you, in your faith, are teetering like a flower in a high wind, it’s time to get right with God! If you are playing games with your faith in Christ, it’s time to shed the games and get right with Him. If you claim to be a Christian but live sitting on the fence with one foot in worldly stuff and the other foot in Christianity, it’s time to make a decision either 100% with and for Him or not (Matt 12:30). If you are a fence-sitter, God will vomit you out of His mouth as you will be found lukewarm in your faith when you stand before Him in the Judgment – Rev 3:16. Remember the sobering and faith-shaking words of Joshua in —>>> Josh 24:15
If you are not a Christian and have not placed your faith and life in Christ to save you from a life separated from Him in the depths of hell (yes, I said hell) then today is the day of salvation for you. Today is the day of hope in Christ. But you must do something … Don’t put it off anymore! Your hope must be grounded and founded in His love, mercy, and grace. He came to this world as the Lamb of God to give His life as a ransom for us. Therefore we have forgiveness for our sins purchased by His sacrifice on the cross of Calvary. For His blood paid that costly price for your soul and mine. It’s time to put off the things of this life and choose Christ.
