Heavy on my heart right now- His return may be soon, but more importantly, not even tomorrow is promised to you! TODAY is the day of salvation! Don’t put it off!!
Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life, no man comes to the Father but by Me!” The Bible says to call on the name of the Lord while you may be saved.
ALL have sinned (done wrong things against God’s commands) and fallen short of the glory of God, no one is righteous, not one.
You must repent, which means to turn from your sins and to turn to God, and believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, and you will be saved! The gift of God is eternal life!
Salvation can only be found in Jesus Christ. Yeshua HaMashiach (in Hebrew). Jesus the Messiah.
It constantly feels as if my words fall on deaf ears, whether they be calls to repentance, admonitions to right living, or wake up calls about the end times. People just do NOT want to hear truth anymore; they would rather believe the lie. Are you experiencing this? Truly heartbreaking 😦
So hard not to feel hopeless sometimes, but we need to have faith no matter what it looks like, for only God knows their heart. All we can do is plant the seed…
I remember a dream I had as a young teen about Jesus’ return. In the dream, I saw written in the clouds, “HE IS COMING!” I went to the high school and began telling everyone & anyone, whether they would listen to me or not, that they needed to Repent & be Saved because Jesus was coming SOON. And I remember that the supposed Christians that I knew were all trying to quiet & silence me telling me that I was causing a scene & embarrassing myself & them, but I would not.
I even got on the intercom system and was pleading with anyone who could hear me to Repent & turn to Christ, that His coming was at hand, as teachers & administrators tried to stop me. In the midst of all this, I remember being surprised that there was a handful of unlikely people, that I would not have expected, who began to help me plead with the students around us. Most of them I did not even know as Christians.
Sadly, I can see this happening in reality soon as well 😦
So I will continue to cry out, whether anyone seems to listen or care, despite whether other believers try to silence me or mock me… Who is there to fear but Him who can destroy both body & soul in hell?
Now you are most likely, and for good reason, wondering what the title of this post is all about. They are words of profound insight from our not quite 5 year old. If at first they don’t hit you, just ponder them for a bit…
Earlier tonight before we put the littles to bed, the younger two were playing with Daddy, and I was practicing some reading with our oldest. We were reading a simple storybook Bible for toddlers. He first impressed me with his reading of the word ‘beautiful,’ with no input from me whatsoever, in its description of the garden that God placed Adam & Eve. I was amazed! He really is a natural reader.
Then after we read a couple of stories, he was flipping through the book and stopped on a page about the birth of Jesus. I asked who the baby in the manger was, to which he quickly responded, “Jesus.” I then had him read the takeaway message at the end, which said, “God sent His Son for me.” I asked him what that meant, and he promptly replied, “Skin on bones!”
It truly gave me pause, as I had no idea where it came from. I repeated it aloud to my hubby, who was equally surprised and asked our son where he got that. And he just shrugged and said something like, “I don’t know. God came with skin on bones to do good.” And that was all he had to say…
And I am still pondering it in my heart hours after he is asleep in bed.
Postscript: Hubby said there is definitely no antichrist spirit in our house, haha.
A little excursion from our usual to share a bit of lovin’ with everyone.
Happy Valentine’s Day ♥
