You were told of a place that you were going to go.
You had to prepare and be ready when that time came
you got left
you fell “asleep”
you felt bad
blamed it on yourself
decided that maybe this was God’s way
felt that your families should have stalled the bus
felt it was their fault
you even got mad
angry and upset
because you were the one who told “them” to be ready
and you wasn’t
You got another phone call.
You were told to be ready to meet at the same location at the same time
on another day
This time you sleep
but you sleep lightly
you’re on guard
you know your time is near to be ready
Because you refuse to miss this bus
The truth is………… many people will NOT be on “The Bus” with their family and friends when Jesus returns.
Praise God! You made it to heaven! You made good on your second chance!
If you can read this story and see clearly the message. Then you know and understand that your time is no longer your time to entertain and to do what you want with it. You now understand that this thing is serious, and God wants YOUR name in that book. What book you say?
See Our Lord has a guest list. Yes,……………and to get in YOUR name has to be on it. Can’t just any ole body walk up in this function. When you get permission to invite your family and friends, that person who invited you put them on their guest list.
Read : Revelation 21 (New International Version) 27 Nothing impure will ever enter it, nor will anyone who does what is shameful or deceitful, but only those whose names are written in the Lamb’s book of life.
Everyday we wake up we get a second change in life to repent of our sins and to accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour. Everyday is like a fresh sheet of paper that has nothing on it. Each day is brand new, not one person here on earth has peeped inside of it. Everyday our Lord is working behind the scenes, through people, situations, life lessons, testimonies just to get us to stay awake long enough to know that the time is near!
The bible says: Mark 13 (New International Version) 32“No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Be on guard! Be alert[f]! You do not know when that time will come. 34It’s like a man going away: He leaves his house and puts his servants in charge, each with his assigned task, and tells the one at the door to keep watch.
How deep is that! Have anyone told your kids to clean up the house and when you get back it better be cleaned? And when the kids did what they supposed to do and cleaned up, they still watched out for you to get back……………… they felt confidence, they did what they were told to do. They ran up to their moms, hugged and kissed them when she returned, because their work was done, they knew how mom like it, they knew she would be pleased. And She was.
But for those who didn’t do what they were supposed to do, they didn’t feel as happy. They knew that they got caught NOT watching out for her to come back. They knew that when she returned that she would not be pleased.
the bible says:
Proverbs 11 (New International Version)
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
and he who wins souls is wise.
I don’t want to be left behind. I want to be caught up in the clouds to meet Jesus when he cracks the sky!
