“The Winning Team”
“The days will come upon you when your enemies will build an embankment against you and encircle you and hem you in on every side. They will dash you to the ground, you and the children within your walls. They will not leave one stone on another, because you did not recognize the time of God’s coming to you.” Luke 19:43-44
These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ to some Pharisees that were in the crowd in Jerusalem during His Triumphant entry into the city. Even though this warning was for the inhabitants of Jerusalem, concerning the destruction of His beloved city, due to the fact that they rejected Him. I couldn’t help wonder if our own beloved nation is at risk of being dashed to the ground by our enemies as a result of not recognizing nor accepting the time of God’s coming.
The destruction of Jerusalem that was predicted by Christ, started in A.D. 70, by the Roman soldiers. The destruction of Jerusalem took place because the people didn’t understand the significance of what was going to take place with the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Today, many people in our nation, to include some of our government leaders, not only don’t understand it, they reject it, time and time again. Many are blinded by Satan and his devious schemes, and live in a world of delusions. They would rather live a lie, then accept the TRUTH. We, as a nation have turned our backs on God, and I believe for the most part, we are facing a show-down.
But for those of us who have ACCEPTED God’s merciful act of SALVATION, we have the HOPE of Heaven. And I BELIEVE that He is coming SOON to rapture His Children out of this old, wretched, sinful world and into the glories of Heaven. I BELIEVE it, because He predicted that He would come back for those who BELIEVE and have ACCEPTED God’s gift of SALVATION. Just like He predicted that Jerusalem would fall and IT DID!!! Where do you stand? Unbelieving? Or Believing?
Just look at it this way, if I’m right about it I WIN, and if you are right about not believing it, I STILL WIN, because either way I’m on my way to HEAVEN, for ALL eternity. Don’t you want to be on the WINNING team? You can be by: CONFESSING your sins to God, and 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 be on the WINNING team, and on your way to HEAVEN to live for ALL eternity. The alternative is an eternity in HELL, the place of torment, pain and agony. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!
