The End of the World

In case you haven't heard, the world is actually ending on Saturday.

Awkward silence.

Okay, you don't actually believe that, do you? That a few men on earth could ascertain what the God of the universe is going to do?

Let's get one thing straight:

"But the day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone."
-Matthew 24:36

That says it all, really. To be honest, it COULD happen on Saturday. It will happen whenever God wants it to happen. But it my personal opinion—and believe me, I could be completely wrong—it won't happen Saturday, just because God will show His sovereignty once again by proving to Man that he cannot predict God's actions. But just a thought.

Be ready, people.

"For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night."
-1 Thessalonians 5:2

Prepare your hearts and get right with God. Many of us might imagine Jesus coming when we are old and gray, old enough to sit in rocking chairs by the window, watching the sky for His return. That may be the case, but when He returns, not EVERYONE will be old and gray. You just never know.

What would you do tomorrow, on Friday, if you knew that it was your last day to live on this earth?

Would you finally tell that person you know is not a Christian about Jesus? Would you go apologize to your estranged family? Would you finally tell the man or woman you have loved for years your true feelings? Would you find everyone you love and care about and spend as much time with them as you could? Would you yell His gospel in the streets?

There's a reason they say to live each day as if it were your last: because it could be.

Just be ready, my friends.
