“Be careful, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, and that day will close on you suddenly like a trap. For it will come on all those who live on the face of the whole earth. Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.” Luke 21:34-36
“BE CAREFUL!” These words are words that I am ALWAYS saying to my precious children and grandchildren. So that they will be CAUTIOUS of what is around them and what they may encounter in their day to day lives. These are the WORDS of WARNING of Jesus to His Disciples about their ATTITUDE and CONDUCT concerning the LAST DAYS. And it is DEFINITELY a WARNING to the TRUE BELIEVERS, today. He tells them to BE CAREFUL that they are NOT WEIGHED DOWN with what is going on in this sinful world, don’t be ENTANGLED with the sins of carousing, drunkenness and the anxieties of life, while a lot of BELIEVERS are TEMPTED to fall to such sins, they SHOULD BE CAREFUL and TURN AWAY FROM such activities, to include the ANXIETIES of LIFE.
We live in UNCERTAIN TIMES and we should not WORRY, because WORRY is a SIN. It shows a LACK of TRUST in OUR FATHER GOD, who IS ABLE to get EACH ONE of His Children through the PERILOUS times we will face. Jesus tells us that our LAST DAY on this EARTH will come on us SUDDENLY like a TRAP. This is the RAPTURE of ALL the TRUE BELIEVERS. And this happening will affect the WHOLE EARTH. And though the TRUE BELIEVERS can RECOGNIZE and ANTICIPATE the COMING of JESUS, by the SIGNS of the TIMES. Some people will be so caught up in the WAYS of a SINFUL LIFE on EARTH, that they WON’T BE READY, when it happens UNEXPECTEDLY. They are the ones that will NOT ENTER the KINGDOM of HEAVEN for ALL of ETERNITY.
Therefore, Jesus tells us to ALWAYS be on the WATCH, and to PRAY that we would be ABLE to ESCAPE ALL that is about to happen (the TERRIBLE TRIBULATION). And to be able to ESCAPE an ETERNITY in HELL with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY to ESCAPE, once you are there. And to be ABLE to STAND REDEEMED and READY, before the SON of GOD, JESUS CHRIST, for the KINGDOM of GOD. Are you REDEEMED and READY? Or are you facing the TERRIBLE TRIBULATION with the SENTENCE of an ETERNITY in HELL, with ALL its HORRORS, and NO WAY TO ESCAPE?
In order to BE READY, you MUST give your HEART and LIFE to GOD. And BE WILLING to TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO GOD, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. CONFESS your sins to Him and ask Him for His FORGIVENESS. BELIEVE, with ALL your HEART, that JESUS died for YOU, and that He is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. You MUST ACCEPT His Gift of SALVATION and BE CAREFUL, to NOT get ENTANGLED with the things of the WORLD, but WATCH and PRAY, be on the ALERT, the RAPTURE is on its WAY, UNEXPECTEDLY. BE READY, by doing this NOW, while you still can! He’s waiting and COMING SOON!!!
