God said, "be ready." So, are you ready? God teaches in the Bible that all men must die and then be judged for how they lived (Heb. 9:27, 2 Cor. 5:10). Jesus warns repeatedly that he will come back unexpectedly and that will be the end of the world (Rev. 22:12, 2 Peter 3:9-13). On that day, the righteous and wicked will be separated with one group going to hell and the other going to heaven (Matt. 25:31-46).
So, are you ready? You are supposed to be ready (Luke 12:35-48). There will be no excuse on the Judgment Day, if one isn't ready, because God will give no mercy on that day (Acts 17:30-31, 2 Thess. 1:6-10). The end could happen at any time, no one knows when the Lord will return, but we do know that he told us to "be ready," (Matt 24:35-51).
Jesus taught in Matt 25:1-13 that the mystery of His coming is liken to ten virgins waiting for the arrival of the groom in order to go to a wedding. We learn from Jesus that those who were unprepared got left behind, and such will be the case with people today if they fail to be ready (Luke 13:22-27).
So are you ready? Jesus has said, "be ready."
Hope to hear from you or to see you at the services.
