The Prep


"If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the master and prepared to do any good work" (2 Tim.2:21).

The Second Coming of Jesus has become a multi-million dollar business. Hal Lindsey's Late Great Planet Earth may have started it in 1970. Over 35,000,000 copies have been sold. Political upheavals, natural disasters, the rapture, the 1,000 year reign of Christ on earth, the Antichrist, and the battle of Armageddon are all a part of it. The late night TV evangelists point to current events to show Jesus imminent return. "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour" has done little to stifle the imagination of those seeking the answers. Jesus' own words, "No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, not the Son, but only the Father", also don't have an effect. Without the sensationalism of descriptions about raptures or Antichrists, Jesus told the disciples that His return would be with the company of angels. He would sit on the throne, and the judgement of all nations would take place. In His last parables, which He taught in the last week of His life, told of preparedness. Preparation does not include amassing great fortunes or any great genius or prognostication..."For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me." It isn't the day or hour that should take all of our energies...It is being prepared by being humble servants...

Have a great start to your week....Begin it with a RAK or two... Love mark Phil.4:11
