“Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand”.
It is not sufficient to our blessedness that we read and hear the scriptures, but we must keep the things that are written; we must keep them in our memories, in our minds, in our affections, and in practice, and we shall be blessed in the deed. The nearer we come to the accomplishment of the scriptures, the greater regard we shall give to them. The time is at hand, and we should be so much the more attentive as we see the day approaching. There is no other way to watch our righteous garments not to be spotted with the world other than having God’s Words in our hearts. The Bible says, “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”(1Pet.5:8) Our only Sword to battle the enemy is the WORD.
Time is really moving faster than normal. We are daily heading towards the judgement day. How prepared are we? We neither read the Word, study, meditate nor keep it, how can we be like Christ Jesus when He appears? He said, “the time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel”( Mark 1:15)
We are always busy with our businesses, not having any regard for the Word. It’s time to reset our priorities and seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness; it’s time to put the Word into practice for the time of the rapture is at hand. There’s no time left for loving the world and its things. We are in the extra time and we must use every moment for preparation towards Heaven. We must set our affections on things above for the time is at hand.
Precious soul, heed the warning, for your life will soon begone. Oh how sad to face the judgement; unprepared to meet the Lord.
PRAYER: Help me Lord Jesus to be prepared for your kingdom for the time is really at hand.
