Luke 21:34 (NASB) “Be on guard, so that your hearts will not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day will not come on you suddenly like a trap.”
To this day I can still hear my dad’s grandfather clock ticking and the chimes going off on the hour. Even through the night, I could know what time it was by the number of chimes. There is another clock ticking today, and no one knows but God when the final chime will strike. But I feel it is very near that hour!
This means, more than ever, reading the headlines as events happen around the world needs to be read as a warning from God Himself. One of them could be the final warning. Our time is short no matter how old you get to be on this earth. The rapture could take place at any moment, and we are warned to be ready, to have our hearts in tune with God. Are you listening for the chimes? I am!
Amos 3:7 says, “Certainly the Lord does nothing unless He reveals His secret plan to His servants, the prophets.” I believe today the Lord is giving out His final warning.
In Matthew 24:32-34 He said Israel would be back in the land after being scattered. Now, 2000 years later, the Israelites are back in their land with a thriving nation.
He said in Mathew 24:37-39 that the world would be “just like in the days of Noah.” Read the headlines, or watch any news show. We may be seeing our final warning! Guard your hearts and minds so that the day will not catch you unaware.
