The Christmas season is upon us, but I detect an air of sadness, almost as if people are waiting for something bad to happen. Unlike Christmases in the past, this season is like there’s a feeling of impending doom. For starters, there’s the Mayan prophecy of Dec. 21, 2012. The conflict in the Middle East, the gloomy global economy, the missile test in the Pacific, all add to the doom and gloom atmosphere. The spirit of giving has become a spirit of grieving. Many have despaired and are thinking of ending it all, to get away from the horrific events that are predicted to take place soon.
There are also those who think these will all go away, just like the Y2k furor. They go their merry ways taunting those who are fearful, saying that life as we know it will go on, that the good times will always be here.
From my perspective, the end times are upon us. Just read the Book of Revelation, and you will know what I mean. There are wars and rumors of wars, earthquakes, famine, typhoons, and all the catastrophes mentioned in the Bible. However, we are not to despair and take our lives by committing suicide, because this is a one way ticket to hell. Spending eternity in hell is the worst thing that can happen. Thus, you must never, ever contemplate suicide. The way to deal with these times is to:
1.) Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
2.) Get baptized with water.
3.) Establish a relationship with God
Man was created for heaven, while hell was created for the devil. However, if man refuses to accept Jesus as his Lord and Savior, then he is not saved, and will go to hell when he dies. Everyone on earth will die, sooner or later. The only security is to make sure our names are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. This is the only way to get heaven, where everything will be alright.
My friends, our heavenly Father has been patiently waiting for us to go home to Him. Let us make ready for the coming of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
To learn more about Jesus, go to a Bible-based church. Pray to the Holy Spirit for discernment as to which church the Holy Spirit wants you to go to.
God bless you!
