Do you have time? Your days are numbered!

clock approaching midnight

Commentary By:  Gordon King

James 4:13-15

‘Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” ‘

Psalm 39:5-6

“Behold, you have made my days a few handbreadths, and my lifetime is as nothing before you. Surely all mankind stands as a mere breath! Selah Surely a man goes about as a shadow! Surely for nothing they are in turmoil; man heaps up wealth and does not know who will gather!”

Time, we only have so much of it to live.  Each and every one of us is given but a small chunk of time to live while here on earth.  What we do with makes the difference in our eternal destination!

Ephesians 5:16

“Making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”

The time that we live in now is evil, and it will get worse!  As time goes by, so does the increase in wickedness and evil upon the world.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-3

‘Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.’

Our time is short, we only have a little of it, we must make the right decisions in our life in order to pass on into eternal life and not eternal destruction!

Romans 13:11

“Besides this you know the time, that the hour has come for you to wake from sleep. For salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed.”

I believe that we are very close to the beginning of the Tribulation Period.  And when that time comes the believers in Jesus Christ will be taken from the earth to be with Jesus Christ in heaven!  Amen.

And yet many cannot discern the times that we are now in, they ignore the signs before us!

Luke 12:54-56

‘He also said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, you say at once, ‘A shower is coming.’ And so it happens. And when you see the south wind blowing, you say, ‘There will be scorching heat,’ and it happens. You hypocrites! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky, but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?’

The end times are at hand, those who are wise make preparations, those who are foolish and ignorant despise what is good in the sight of the Lord!  The day is soon coming for the Lord to rapture the church, the children of God.

1 Corinthians 15:51-53

“Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed. For this perishable body must put on the imperishable, and this mortal body must put on immortality.”

Those who did not believe, those who rebel against Jesus Christ, will endure the Tribulation Period.  It will be a time of great turmoil, evil, violence, and wickedness!  The ruler of time is known as the Antichrist.  He will first appear as a man of charisma, charm, and power, performing great signs and miracles.  Yet, in the middle of this time, he will show his true colors of evil and wickedness!

Daniel 7:25

“He shall speak words against the Most High, and shall wear out the saints of the Most High, and shall think to change the times and the law; and they shall be given into his hand for a time, times, and half a time.”

And when people of the world are saying “peace and safety”, sudden destruction will come upon them like a thief in the night!

1 Thessalonians 5:3

‘While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.’

Time is so short, none of us know just how much of it we have.  We may have another day, we may not!  Today is the day of salvation, don’t wait another minute, accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior now!

Let us all as believers in Jesus Christ move forward in our walk with the Lord, being faithful and true to the One who created us.  The time is soon coming for us to redeem our inheritance and be with the Lord forever!

Philippians 3:13-14

“Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.”

When all is said and done, it is the faithful who will reign with the Lord our God forever and ever!

Revelation 22:5

“And night will be no more. They will need no light of lamp or sun, for the Lord God will be their light, and they will reign forever and ever.”

 

God bless my friends!  Maranatha!

    Amen! I believe that we are in the final part of the last days. Although if seven year tribulation period falls in line with the Jewish seven year cycle, it would not start for (at least) another six and a half years, as we have just completed the seventh year. But definitely if there was ever a time to get serious about God, it is now! God needs us doing what we are supposed to be doing.

      Thanks for your comment Matthew!

      We are definitely living in the end times, the last days! Yet, how much time do we have before the rapture of the church? And even if the Tribulation period didn’t begin for another six and a half years (which no one knows), does that mean that the rapture couldn’t happen today? Absolutely not! I believe that the “restrainer” spoken of by the apostle Paul in 2 Thessalonians 2, is the Holy Spirit within the body of Christ. And when the one who restrains is taken out of the way, then “the lawless one” will be revealed. We don’t know just how long it will be before the lawless one will be revealed after the restrainer is taken out of the way! It could be instantaneous, it could be a month, a year, or possibly even several years.

      Whenever the time, whatever the day, our days as humans on this planet are numbered. The lost souls may not have another day to live, another day to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior! And as you said, God needs us doing what we should be doing now!

      God bless! Maranatha!

    Amen! We are all being prepared to leave, I find I am putting my affairs in order and have prepared a letter and left it with important personal documents in my filing cabinet to be found by family looking for explanation. The letter details what has happened should I suddenly disappear and what can be expected during the course of the following tribulation period. I am buying Bibles and giving them as gifts to people I am in contact with , whether they want them/ read them or not I will leave up to them and of course The Lord. I urge them not to accept the mark of the beast but to surrender to Jesus as Lord and their Saviour. I believe I am being led to do this by The Lord it is just like I would do if I knew I had only a few weeks./months to live. It may be much longer but I am ready……. Come Lord Jesus!

    Blessings to you all In Jesus Name

    Amen Gordon and Christine, the peril of world destruction is imminently close. Witness how fragile our lives really are. If there were some interruption in our food/water supply or medical care then millions of people could die. Utilities needed for heating and cooling which were never a consideration before the 19th century are now part of our infrastructure for survival. It’s time for Christians to leave this planet, we should be departing at any second now. ALL ABOARD FOR THE RAPTURE !!!! I’m not saying this out of a prideful egotism but out of the reality of reading my bible and watching world events take place. The Time of the Tribulation is about to begin, personally I believe that the Gog/Magog war will also be the time of the rapture and the beginning of the 7 yr. tribulation period. If you look at all that’s going on around Israel. The facts are that life, civilization, and nations cannot continue to exist under the current trajectory of history. There is a boiling point, a tipping over point when major nations and infrastructures will break down and DISCONSTRUCT. Too many nuclear bombs and diseases for it not to happen sooner rather than later. Thankfully and joyfully This is all God’s plan and allowance. Jesus has a better plan coming and we believers need to get off this earth so God can take care of business and then come back to rule and reign with Jesus in a better world. I believe that the earth during the millenium will be rehabilitated to the state like it was before the fall of Adam and Eve, absolutely beautiful and a place for humans to multiply and inhabit the whole earth with no wars or evil, What a great privelege we will have to be serving our God and Savior Jesus during this period.
    I have a housefull of bibles and books for anyone who wants to read them during the tribulation after my wife and I are taken out of here. The bible says that His word will not come back void but will prosper where ever it is sent.
    Wouldn’t it be awesome if at the exact moment the kickoff of the superbowl happens tomorrow that the rapture happens at the same time. All of a sudden thousands of empty stadium seats and players missing from the field. I wonder what would happen if the rapture actually did happen tomorrow at superbowl, I’m ready and hope everyone who claims to be Christian are also ready to meet Christ in the air.
