WATCH FOR HIS RETURN!
This has been a painful week as over 400 innocent Russian people, many of them children, were ruthlessly terrorized and killed by Muslim jihadists - may the LORD heal, comfort, and help these families in Jesus name. And today a massive hurricane is currently sweeping across Florida where some of my family live - may the LORD use this to draw us each closer to Him. Plus, there continues to be much unrest in many nations around the world - we pray for the Prince of Peace to bring true peace to the hearts of man. Jesus spoke a lot about the last days and in Matthew 24, he says, "Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever. However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah's day. In those days before the Flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn't realize what was going to happen until the Flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes." Then in Mark 13, Jesus says, "Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will remain forever. However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. And since you don't know when they will happen, stay alert and keep watch. The coming of the Son of Man can be compared with that of a man who left home to go on a trip. He gave each of his employees instructions about the work they were to do, and he told the gatekeeper to watch for his return. So keep a sharp lookout! For you do not know when the homeowner will return--at evening, midnight, early dawn, or late daybreak. Don't let him find you sleeping when he arrives without warning. What I say to you I say to everyone: Watch for his return!" May we all stay JESUS FOCUSED in these last days and find PEACE in the eye of the storms of life!
