The End is near!
“But the end of all things is at hand by ye therefore sober and watch unto prayer”
Throughout the foreordained, divinely inspired and God centered history of the Holy Bible, great men have been forewarning the lost world about God’s judgment. Before the oncoming disastrous flood, Prophet Noah was destined to warn antediluvian world. But history proofs that the people of all ages rejected Lords free offer of salvation. Nowadays the Word of God is again speaking to the last generation which is consist of Modern minded, liberals and traditional folk, who have forgotten the truth, way and life(Revelation 3:22).
Their religious and hypo-critic life is continue to fulfill earthly desires and selfish aims.St.John advises all believers courageously and said “ Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world, if any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof, but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever” (1-John 2:15-17).
While we are living in this temporary world, we are commanded to show Christ’s life through our human lives. St.Peter advises us to be sober and watch unto prayer.
Let us learn that to be sober in the following perspectives.
1- The Matter of Salvation
The theme of Paul’s Letter to the Galatians is that salvation cannot be earned by human effort, but must be received simply as a free gift from a gracious God, by faith ( Galatians 3:26).
Also read 2:16).
Jesus is the only source of salvation.( Read John 14:6). In heaven and earth Jesus name has full authority to achieve salvation (Acts 4:12).
2- The Matter of Christian Life
We Christians are called light of the world (Mathew 5:14) and It is their responsibility being His royal priests to proof their heavenly citizenship. All children of God should protect themselves from the works of flesh (1-Peter 2:12).
3- The Matter to discern Satanic tactics
Devil is an ancient enemy of almighty God of Israel. He is a cosmic entertainer to introduce erogenous zones and false doctrines. Satan tries to astray every Christian believer into the works of flesh (Galatians 5:19-21). He is seeking to devour Lords children with his murderous bloody weapons
4- The Matter of false leaders
Every Christian church should be sober about false leaders. (Read Mathew 7:15-17).In the last days satanic minded philosophical leaders will arise. The spiritual deception will be spread all over the earth, (Mathew 24: 4-5).
5- His Sudden coming
After the end of the grace age, Christ will call His Church to the heavenly realms (Read 14: 1-5; Rev 4:1). The early Church believed that before oncoming destruction Church will be called to Heaven. Because nobody knows its perfect date and time.St.Paul taught all believers will be changed into glorious bodies. (1-Corinthians 15: 51-52; 1-Thesolonians 4:13-18).
Christians will be taken from the planet earth. Before Christ’s imminent return the situation of the world will be alike Noah days. (Mathew 24: 37-43). At Christ's coming Christians will experience the fulfillment of divine grace which is still in progress.(Read 1-Peter1:13).
6- Watch unto prayer
Many people pray to their god’s but Christian are taught to pray to Heavenly Father (Mathew 6:8), Who is a God of Holy Bible. The same God sent His own begotten Son to give us eternal life. In Old Testament, the Prophets often pray to Jehovah. Elijah Prayed and God answered,(1-Kings 18:24). King David prayed to God 7 times,(Psalm 119:124). The Prophet Daniel prayed three times, (Daniel 6:10).
When we call God in prayer through Jesus name then we receive true spiritual power to resist against the schemes of evil one. Prayer should be in Lord Jesus, In spirit and it should be done for all saints who are facing sufferings, torture and persecution for the sake of Gospel teaching and preaching. (Ephesian 6:18-20).
Let us submit our whole lives under His supervision, Who is warning us about the destructible era which will bring 21 judgments upon Christ’s rejected generation, (Revelation chapter 6 to 9).Woe! On those who will follow the diabolical wide path under the leadership ofcounterfeit trinity. Let us await for the imminent return of Jesus Christ by sobering ourselves while passing through an evil age.
Jesus is coming Soon!
