If Jesus is NOT coming back soon...
I can't say that this is the end times. It sure looks like what I imagine it would be like, but what if it isn't?
What if there is no "rule" that says the world is going to hell in a hand basket and there is nothing we can do about it?
Have we all given up? Is it easier to say, well it's God's will that everyone get evil so He can come whoop up on the baddies and take us "good guys" away to reward?
What if we're NOT considered "good guys" until we DO forgive all, share with all and obey what Jesus taught?
Whether or not Jesus comes soon makes no difference to how we should be living today. We've ALL personally allowed ourselves and the world to become lax and immoral because we chose pleasure and prosperity for ourselves.
We each have much work to do.
If Jesus doesn't come back soon, this world and our lives will be pretty much unsalvageable unless we really Do something about it. I hate it when people on TV say we have to DO something about a situation, ...but here I am preaching it. What on earth could we possibly do to make a difference here in all this chaos?
Every one of us is held accountable to God ONLY for what WE do, and how we respond to our life crises, to the stress, to the needs of others, and to our own opportunities to use our talents.
Usually we're trying to change others, but that is not possible. It is barely possible to change something about ourselves. Have you ever noticed though, when something really needs to be done, we usually pick something else and get all uptight about it, fuming and being angry and fighting an imaginary battle to avoid dealing with an important issue?
Personal integrity, personal excellence, even when nobody is watching and even when it doesn't seem to matter, THIS is what we ALL have to do, whether it's time for Jesus to come get us or not. Because if we're not living like this, we won't be going anywhere with Jesus.
A friend of mine said this about Jesus coming to sort out His own people: He'll separate the sheep from the goats. The sheep for the pasture and the goats for roasting. Think about it!
I'm just planting seeds and hope for a better personal world for each of us. And even if all the rest of the earth refuses to live like this, God will bless us and protect us even more if we choose to become more like Him.
I always hope that someone will see what I've written and that it would encourage them to keep going, keep trying. And maybe to wonder why I care, who is this Jesus that we're talking about?!
It's no wonder so many people don't care...they haven't found out who He is yet and what it means to them personally. To so many "Christians" He's just a name in an old book.
There really is no point in "saving" the world, or getting the Middle Eastern countries to live in peace, if WE haven't first established peace and salvation in our own house. The message of the gospel is first for us (who have heard) to embrace.
Thank God He still forgives us when we fail to accomplish peace in our homes, and tomorrow we will get up and try again.
God bless you all. Write to me if you have questions or problems at
