Dive In!

My heart is full with the knowledge that Christ’s return is soon. So many of us are living for ourselves, Christians included. Many aren’t living for God with the knowledge of His return in their hearts.

Know Him? No

If you don’t know Him today, know that God loves you unconditionally. He aches for you to know Him and have life and life abundantly! Come to Him and receive His everlasting love for you, my friend. Contact me or find someone who you think is truly living for and in love with Jesus and talk with them. Even tell Jesus Himself at this very moment of your desire to know Him. You won’t be disappointed!

Know Him? Yes

Are you trying to live as the world lives, fulfilling your longings with money/material things, success, activities and other people without satisfying your longing in God? He’s the only One who can satisfy you, beloved. Raise your heart to Him.

It’s not easy to constantly die to our soulish wants and desires and we will do so until His return. But come to Him, spend time with Him alone daily, and also bring Him into every aspect of your life here. You will grow in experiencing His yoke that is easy and light.

He Aches For You!

He aches to hear your voice, and also wants to tell you how He feels about youalways love and gladness! Ask Him, beloved! Ask Him! He will speak of His love to you!

Go on the never-ending pursuit of seeking God and searching out His unfathomable riches. Talk to Him and listen for His reply. Dive into His Word and ask questions like, “What was Mary feeling as she sat at Your feet listening to You speak?” What were You feeling, Jesus?!” He will answer, I know it!

It’s not just for the pastor or missionary or the person who’s “crazy” for God. It’s for ALL of us! Dive into seeking out the God of the universe in all His endlessness! You won’t be disappointed!

Being Prepared for Christ’s Return

“Be dressed in readiness, and keep your lamps lit… “Blessed are those slaves whom the master will find on the alert when he comes; truly I say to you, that he will gird himself to serve, and have them recline at the table, and will come up and wait on them… if the head of the house had known at what hour the thief was coming, he would not have allowed his house to be broken into. “You too, be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour that you do not expect.” …the Lord said, “Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? “Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes… (Luke 12:35, 37, 39-40, 42 – Read all of Luke 12:35-48.)

Christ says we are blessed if we are ready when He returns. We’re to be alert and always prepared for His second coming so that His return doesn’t take us by surprise no matter when He comes. We must be ready. In verse 37, Jesus even says that He Himself will come serve and dine with us who are ready and alert for His return.

I know that I honestly don’t feel prepared for Jesus’ return! How can we be prepared? Some things I feel God brought to my mind:

  1. First, we must have faith in God to help and guide us by His Holy Spirit. Without faith, we can’t please God.
  2. We must put our relationship with Him center-stage, spending daily, quality time with God on a consistent basis. (Read the Parable of the Ten Virgins.)
  3. Read, pray, study and live His Word, including studying Scripture pertaining to the End Times. (150 Chapters on the End Times.)
  4. Help others be ready by equipping them to do #1-3 above and guide them in preparing others still–both other believers and also reaching the lost for Christ (Luke 12:42).

So remember what you have received and heard; and keep it, and repent. Therefore if you do not wake up, I will come like a thief, and you will not know at what hour I will come to you.’ (Revelation 3:3)

Prayer: Lord, strengthen our faith in You and guide us by Your Holy Spirit. Help us to cultivate our relationship with You in all depth and intimacy. Give us a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of You and in Your Word, Your will and Your ways. Help us in every way to be alert and prepared for Your return, helping others to be ready as well. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
