EXHORTATION FOR WATCHFULNESS
We can’t be careless and indifferent to so many events that are happening today in the entire world…
The Lord Jesus warned us 2000 years ago that:
“There will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars;
and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity, the sea and the waves roaring;
men’s hearts failing them from fear and THE EXPECTATION OF THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH,
FOR THE POWERS OF THE HEAVENS WILL BE SHAKEN.” (Luke 21:25-26)
Lately, I’ve heard all kinds of news about what is about to happen on the entire earth… and this morning I was reading exactly these passages. And I knew that nothing is a coincidence.
Those of us who belong to the Lord and love Him and are waiting for Him to come must NOT get scared, BUT MUST WATCH AND PRAY.
Later in this chapter, the Lord Jesus is warning us:
“But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with CAROUSING, drunkenness, and CARES of this life, and THAT DAY come on you unexpectedly. For it will come as A SNARE on ALL those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. WATCH therefore, and PRAY ALWAYS that you may be counted worthyTO ESCAPE all these things that WILL COME TO PASS, and to stand before the Son of Man.” (v. 34-36).
We are living times of EXTREME VISITATION, when we need to take heed VERY SERIOUSLY to the Words of Lord Jesus, which will undoubtedly happen.
What kind of lives should we live, since we KNOW that SOON all these things are going to happen???
We either take our relationship with the Lord seriously, or we will PAY THE CONSEQUENCES OF OUR DISOBEDIENCE, LACK OF WATCHFULNESS AND IGNORANCE…
And BLESSED will be those whom the Master will find WATCHING AND PRAYING UNCEASINGLY.
We know that the subject of prayer is always mentioned, but how many of us SERIOUSLY PRACTISE IT??? Only those will have protection, deliverance and blessing.
Fervent prayers with faith and based on God’s Word – this is what the Lord asks from us, and they receive answer.
Powerful people are people of PRAYER.
Don’t you want to be one of them?
We learn to pray by PRAYING ALWAYS in any place and for any detail, BELIEVING that our prayers will have a great power and will make a great difference.
“Lord, help us to pray unceasingly and not give up. Father, teach us the strategies of heaven, so that we can always come out victorious, and ever be afraid, but on the contrary, be filled with joy, because we are always connected to You through prayers, supplications and thanksgivings…”
