THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Minds are like parachutes.
They donít function properly if they arenít open.
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
This is yet another admonition to be constantly working in the ministry of our Lord, and to be READY for His appearing!
Not many years ago, early one morning, Ann was still asleep and I had the bright idea to prepare her breakfast.
So I went to the kitchen and got the eggs and bacon out of the refrigerator.
Then I got the skillet out of the cabinet.
As I was spraying the skillet with "Pam," I dropped it!
That skillet landed on our tile floor with a LARGE clatter!
It awakened Ann, and she immediately looked by her on the bed, but I wasn't there.
She came running into the kitchen and said,
"WHEW! I'm glad you're still here! I heard a loud bang, and thought the rapture had occurred, and you were GONE!"
Is your mind ďopenĒ to the rapture?
Now if a man owns a house, and didn't watch carefully, a thief could come in and steal everything!
But if the owner was WATCHING, and PREPARED, the thief wouldn't be able to steal from him!
And the way to be ready is to be doing the things that our Lord said were important.
I cannot emphasize enough, the importance of LEARNING Christ, and LIVING like He would!
