The End Times

The End Times

So many questions surround the second coming of Christ. We wonder when it will happen, what it will be like, and exactly how the events spelled out for us in the book of Revelation will transpire.

I am reminded of what Jesus told the disciples in Acts 1:7, “It is not for you to know times or periods that the Father has set by His own authority.”

I believe there is a very good reason why no man can know when the coming of the Lord will take place. Think about it: if you knew when Christ was coming, your devotion to Him may not be what it is today! Many people would live their lives with no care in this world up to the very last moment. Many people wouldn’t make an effort to reach their loved ones till the very last moment.

God desires our obedience and He desires our readiness at all times! This is why the angels told the disciples after Jesus went back to heaven to stop looking up into the heavens and get busy doing the work that the Lord had called them to do! (Acts 1:10-11) God wants us to be about His work. He wants us to see the urgency in reaching the lost, encouraging those who are broken, and restoring relationships with the unchurched and the unloved.
 
We are living in the end times! Each minute that passes puts us one minute closer to the return of Christ! Let’s rally to the call…Let’s rach our loved ones! Let’s minister to those who are in need! Let’s be found faithful when Christ returns!
