For a spiritual connection of worship and praise
THE LAST MINUTE
We all agree that many people always wait for the last few minutes to complete a task that sometimes turns out to be very important.
For some, they think that by coming closer to the goal, it excites them more or give them time to venture around. It is not always the case for everyone; however, we also find people who take time to concentrate in their work in order to prepare for the future and are ready for any unexpected things along the way. Are you someone who waits until a deadline to get ready or someone who prepares ahead of time?
On a daily basis, we do comfortable things that draw our attention such as: eating what we want, going out with people who reflect our personality. However, we do not think about the future of this world in which we live in.
We do not have a clue that eating, drinking, dressing up and other things will end one day. The best book that describes the past and future of this world is the Bible. It is clearly shown that in the later times men will attach much more to transient things than eternal things.
1 Timothy 4:1-3 “Now the Spirit expressly says that in later times some will depart from the faith by devoting themselves to deceitful spirits and teachings of demons, through the insincerity of liars whose consciences are seared".
2 Timothy 3:1-4 "But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God".
There are other biblical references. For example, 2 Peter 3: 3 - 7, Jude 1: 17-19, 1 John 2: 18, Mark 13: 5 - 6. These signs of the last time invite us to a high spiritual vigilance by allowing us to meditate on the return of Jesus Christ.
When we read the Bible about prophetic events marking the end of time, we can see that we are counting on the last minute. Are you ready, to face the reality of hell? Otherwise, you must prepare yourself accordingly by receiving JESUS CHRIST as your Savior and Master. Do not wait until the last minute to make this decision because you do not know the future.
