“The Patience of God”
So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with Him. Bear in mind that our Lord’s patience means salvation, just as our dear brother Paul also wrote you with the wisdom that God gave him. 2 Peter 3:14-15
I truly believe we ARE living in the last days. Now, I know that many people in the past have said the same thing. And some people have the attitude of doubt. They wonder if this is TRUE, then why something hasn’t happened yet. Well Peter tells us why in these verses.
We who are TRUE Children of the Living God, are awaiting the next climatic event in biblical history, which is the RAPTURE of the believers, those who have already come to Jesus Christ for the SALVATION of their souls. They will be ‘caught up’ and transported to meet with Jesus in the sky. But we should make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with the Lord before this takes place.
We, the Children of God, like the others in the past, await this event with baited breath. However, I believe we are closer than we have EVER been, because of all that is unfolding in the affairs of mankind, in this wretched old world in which we presently reside. And also the increasing negativity towards the nation of Israel, from their surrounding neighbors. So we wait ANXIOUSLY, and question, “Oh Lord, how long will it be?”
But the Apostle Peter tells us that we need to ‘bear in mind that our Lord’s PATIENCE means salvation’ for the lost, in other words, God is giving ALL the LOST people, those who have NEVER truly given their HEART to Him, the opportunity to be saved, before it is too late.
The RAPTURE could happen at ANYTIME. Are you ready? If you have not given your HEART to God, then you will be spending an eternity in a place called HELL that is a place of eternal torment, torture, misery, pain, agony and despair, with NO escape. You NOW have the opportunity to turn from your sinful life and accept God’s AMAZING GRACE, the SALVATION of your soul. You do this by: CONFESSING your sins to God, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and become a TRUE Child of the Living God. Do it NOW while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
