In The Near Future; How Could This Happen?
We had a great time with our friends last night. I just woke up and turned off the alarm. It looks like my wife got early and went to work; she does that some times on Saturday. Although as I look around it looks everything just as was the night before.
There were usual amount of sirens going on out side. I called my wife to see what time she would be home, her phone rang and rang and went in to her voicemail, I left a message. I decided to take a shower and turned on the TV catch the news. As I headed for the bathroom the announcer seemed to be in a panic; there plane, car and train crashes everywhere. I thought “bad day” for traveling!
While in the shower, the sirens were getting louder and more frequent. I got out of the shower and tried calling my wife; again it went her to voicemail. I was starting to get worried she always has her cell with her.
I went to the TV and they were interviewing a government official and he just announced that the President had just declared a state of emergency for the entire country. Planes were falling out of the sky and car wrecks on every major and minor highway. The most disturbing thing was that some people had vanished everywhere.
Then there was great commotion outside. I went outside only to see all the parents were all in panic. They were looking around everywhere for their kids, all the young children were missing, even the babies.
I went inside to call my wife, no luck; I even called her office number, no answer.
Then I remembered in Book of Chronicles, where Paul said; “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed”.
How could this happen! I was left behind!
I am a good person, go to church, I teach Sunday school, and I even pray for others, this can’t be true. I must be in a bad dream!
I tried my wife again, both numbers, no answer! I called my Pastor, no answer either. Now, I am really worried!
I felt so lost and I did not know what to do. I picked up my Bible and turned to Revelations and started reading and remembered what would happen during the tribulation period, plagues, earthquakes, famines and more. What a terrible time to be on earth, it was so overwhelming. I am not prepared for this, who would be?
I fell to my knees and stated praying:
Dear Lord Jesus, I admit that I am a sinner and I am in need of you and your forgiveness. I want to turn from my sins and follow you completely. I believe that You are the Son of God who died on the cross for me and all my sins; you were buried and rose to life again. I accept the Father’s gift of eternal life through faith and belief in you alone. I receive you as Lord and Savior of every part and area of my life forever and ever. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
This will not be pretty, but I now know Jesus as my Lord and Savior and with the blood covering of Jesus I will be able to face this.
There are so many that are unprepared like I was. The next 7 years will be Hell on earth, I must tell as many as I can, salvation is the only answer!
Rev 22:12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward [is] with Me, to give to every one according to his work”.
Are you prepared? This could happen anytime, ever right now!
Seek Jesus He is waiting for you; He loves you and died for you!
