Paul tells us, in 2 Tim 4:1-5 (KJV) “I charge or “testify earnestly” before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall evamgelismjudge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.

But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.” So my friends, our responsibility is to stay focused on where God is leading, as we make full proof of our ministry to others in the final days of what we call the history of this world, which by definition is a “continuous, systematic narrative of past events written as a chronological account” beginning with, “in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

And now, we are at the threshold of the promise land where every person who seeks God’s presence and kingdom should be searching “the scriptures” and seeking the Spirit of God while praying without ceasing with a passion as history and prophecy unfolds before our eyes in the form of “breaking news.”

But the masses are not concerned with hearing the truth. It’s all a fable or a “a story not founded on fact.” But thfriends, where do you and I stand in this time of total chaos and confusion we find ourselves living in today. Can we say with no reservation that we are not like the five foolish virgins who had lamps, but no oil?

For you and I, our lamp would be the word of God, but like the foolish who had no oil to sustain them as they waited on the bridegroom, we lack the oil of God’s Spirit found in His word that would sustain us with a continuous connection to God during that time Christ speaks of in Matt 24:21 (KJV) A time of great tribulation, which has never been since the beginning of the world to this time, nor ever shall be.”

My friends, look from within, are we like the wise, who search the scriptures daily as we develop a personal relationship with God and His Spirit. Yes, the bridegroom has delayed His coming. But His promise remains, because He is patient with all His children.

Not wanting any one of us to perish, but [His desire is that] everyone will come to repentance” and be a-part of the redeemed who will live throughout the ceaseless ages of eternity in His kingdom. Yes, from time to time we have all photo3-300x173-300x173[1]became drowsy and fallen asleep.

But today we must work the works of him that sends us out on the front lines of the battle field to serve, while it is day: for the night cometh soon, when no man can work.” John 9:4 (NIV) But, it is during that time, we will hear the sound of a mighty rushing wind but we must understand it’s closer now than it’s ever been.

We can almost hear the trumpet as Gabriel sounds the call for God’s faithful to come home. I don’t know about you, but I can almost hear also the father saying to His “Son go get my children.”
