THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Down in South Louisiana, in a small community, ole Boudreaux was acting different!
He quit drinkin', quit smokin', quit chasin' women, and started working at the church.
He raked leaves, swept the sidewalk, and even did some painting.
Pastor Thibedeaux went to see him and ask about the change.
He asked, "Boudreaux, whut dis change is whut dun overtook you?"
Boudreaux said, "Well, Bro. Pastor, I dun heard on the news about Chris' is in da Gulf.
And, if He dat close, I wanna be 'good to go!'"
26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth:
behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not.
27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Jesus said that when He comes, people will be doing the same things they were when the
flood came over the earth in Noah's day (Matt. 24:38).
People will be partying, getting married, and will not be concerned for a judgment day.
He also said that lots of other things would be happening:
There will be "wars and rumours of wars" (Matt. 24:6);
There will be "famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes," (Matt 24:7)
Also, "many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.." (Matt 24:11).
But, I believe, the main thing Jesus said is there will be NO WARNING!
For "as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west;
so shall also the coming of the Son of man be!"
Sometimes life becomes so hectic, we forget to keep Jesus in the center of our lives.
Sometimes life becomes so scary, we forget to keep Jesus in the center of our lives.
But the only way to be READY for His appearing is to keep Jesus in the center of our lives!
It COULD BE any day!
