Who You Know

In all the tumult and chaos of the world today, we wonder what is secure.  What can we trust?  What can we hold on to and be safe?   Some people have a little place in the country.  Some people have an underground bunker.  Some are hoarding, and backing that up with guns.

Maybe the biggest part of preparedness is getting ready to meet God.  We are all going to die one way or the other–through war or terrorism, through an automobile accident, illness or freak accident.  And then whether or not we are close to the end of the world, it is the end of the world for us when that final event happens to us.

Jesus talked about the end of the world and his own return.  He said when he returns the glory of it all, the glory of His appearance, and the sheer magnitude of the earthly changes happening–noise, light and movement, will have everyone trying to hide in caves if they don’t know Him.  For those who have a relationship with Him, we will recognize who we’ve been waiting for.  We’ll hold our hands up like little children waiting to be picked up by their returning parent.  And so it will be that those who go with Him leave this dimension.  Those who hide will stay.  And when He leaves, He takes all the light with Him, leaving those here in the “outer darkness where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth.”

Perhaps taking time to know Him, studying the stories of Jesus, talking to Him in prayer and checking out the truth of His claims is the best preparation for these times, after all.
