The End

Even if—by some ironic stroke of God's humor—the rapture did occur day after tomorrow, the end doesn't follow the rapture by five months. We've got an entire millennium of Jesus' peaceful reign as King on planet Earth before the end.

But you can plan on disaster. Whether it's the increasing frequency and intensity of earthquakes the Bible prophesies, the solar flare super storm scientists forecast for May 2013, or the meltdown of a key relationship in your life, Jesus told us to expect tribulation.

He also told us to have peace in the face of it (John 16:33).

A good man ... will guide his affairs with discretion.
Surely he will never be shaken;
The righteous will be in everlasting remembrance.
He will not be afraid of evil tidings;
His heart is steadfast, trusting in the LORD.
~ Psalms 112:5-7 (NKJV)

It is not possible to carry enough insurance or make enough preparations to ward of the end of life as you know it.

It is also not possible to exhaust the Lord's ability to provide for all your need—body, mind, heart, and soul—in any disaster.

All that is necessary is to establish our love for Him and remember to call upon Him.

"Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him."
~ Psalms 91:14-15 (NKJV)

  1. I love this "All that is necessary is to establish our love for Him and remember to call upon Him."our priority must be to love God
    thank for the Post

  2. So many don't realize that the "only" reason we were created is to love and serve God. Everything else is insignificant.

  3. I feel like saying (like someone might while standing in line at a restaurant) I'm with Him. Something about that sentence makes whatever going to play out...okay.

    Life seems very, very difficult and complex. The more we love God, the easier and simpler it gets.

  5. Odie ~

    We look for pleasure in many places. We find it in that purpose.

  6. Wendy ~

    "I'm with Him." But the rewards of those words far outweigh the stress or even suffering that also comes.

  7. Everyone wants to know "when" he'll come. But I just want to be ready, in case it's today.I just want to be ready.

  8. David ~

    There are many ends to be ready for. And there are many things we wouldn't want to be the last thing we did before meeting Him. I suppose remembering both helps motivate us to do well.
