Grace and peace on this Easter weekend Dear Hearts.
Today, as we celebrate the two thousand year old miracle of His resurrection, let us think on Christ’s end-time warning to His followers:
- 7 So they asked him, “Master, when will this happen, and what sign will there be that these things are going to take place?”
- 8-9 “Be careful that you are not deceived,” he replied. “There will be many coming in my name, saying ‘I am he’ and ‘The time is very near now.’ Never follow men like that. And when you hear about wars and disturbances, don’t be alarmed. These things must indeed happen first, but the end will not come immediately.
- And prophesies world-wide suffering
- 10-19 Then he continued, “Nation will rise up against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; there will be great earthquakes and famines and plagues in this place or that. There will be dreadful sights, and great signs from heaven. But before all this happens, men will arrest you and persecute you, handing you over to synagogue or prison, or bringing you before kings and governors, for my name’s sake. This will be your chance to witness for me. So make up your minds not to think out your defense beforehand. I will give you such eloquence and wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to resist or contradict it. But you will be betrayed, even by parents and brothers and kinsfolk and friends. and there will be some of you who will be killed and you will be hated everywhere for my name’s sake. Yet, not a hair of your head will perish. Hold on, and you will win your souls! _Luke 21:7-19 J.B. Phillips New Testament
Two-thousand years! Plenty of time for hearts to grow cold and folks to turn to other gods. And yet, the promise stands!
“Hold on, and you will win your souls!”
Do you know Him? Does He know you?
Is your relationship with Him intimate, as a bride with her groom?
. . . do not ignore this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.2 Peter 3:8
