Does your heart skip a beat when you hear of all that is going on around the world? If it doesn’t it should! What about when it comes to your front door, or should I say your windshield? This past weekend, Tennessee had baseball sized hail. Yes, you heard me right, baseball! Can you imagine getting hit with one of these icy objects being hurled at you at pretty high speeds? This is what the citizens of Rogersville, Tennessee found themselves dealing with.
Cars had their windows smashed, and others looked like someone threw a thousand hard baseballs at the sides and tops of their cars. The image of people running to their cars at the supermarket, gives chills at the thought.
These events have been happening more and more frequently causing the words of Revelation to begin jumping off of the pages. In Revelation 16:21 it says “And there fell upon men a great hail out of heaven, every stone about the weight of a talent: and men blasphemed God because of the plague of the hail; for the plague thereof was exceeding great.”
Scholars who have studied this measurement, have concluded that it is greater than basketball sized hail, or about the size of a five gallon bucket, or approximately 130 pounds. Can you imagine having 130 pound hail falling on your head, your car, your house, your dog? That is more than most people can imagine. But then again, no one in Rogersville, TN ever imagined getting hit by baseball sized hail either.
Based on scriptures, the end times are definitely near. We are living in the last days. Is your heart right with God? Have you given it any thought? Today is the day for salvation!
You may say, “I’m spiritual”, God will accept me when He sees I am a good person. Jesus said, ” I know thy works , that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor and blind and naked:
I councel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not apear; and anoint thine eyes with eye salve, that thou mayest see.
As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent. Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.” Revelation 3:15-20.
Do you know the Lord Jesus as your Savior? If not, today would be a good day to come to him. He is knocking at your hearts door but as you see, Jesus waits for you to open your hearts door to him. Good works will not save you, thinking you are ok will not save you either. “As it is written, There is none righteous , no ,not one” Romans 3:10.
All men and women after Adam were born into sin. There is no escaping it for you either. You too were born in sin, just as the generations before you. You do not have to teach a child to lie or to throw a temper tantrum, why? Because “For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.”
Adam sinned, disobeying the laws of God, and Jesus obeyed the father and gave his life for his friends, you and me. He then offers adoption into His holy family if you will just accept what He did for you. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” Romans 6:23.
We are living in the last days. Soon those who love their Lord Jesus Christ will be raptured up to be with the Lord Jesus in the air and forever to be with Him. The wrath to come on this earth, if the days were not shortened, no man would survive it the Bible says.
I hope you will examine your heart. Give it some thought. Jesus is the way and He knocks at your hearts door with what? A gift! Accept that gift. Admit you are a sinner as God himself has told us we are all born into sin. We did not wish to be born into sin but we were, and have only one way to be acceptable before God, and that is through his Son the Lord Jesus Christ.
Accept Him today…the time is short!
Said with much love
