Are you a Prepper?
You know, the folks who have stockpiled MRE’s and such, in case the power grid goes down?
Now, I’m not here to mock these folks.
In fact, since my mom went on life sustaining oxygen, I am taking serious steps to have a generator ready to go to power her oxygen concentrator.
I also clearly remember the stress of being without power for five days because of Hurricane Sandy.
So, I’m all for preparing for emergencies.
However, there is something far more important to prepare for, and that’s Jesus’ return for His Bride, the Church.
Paul tells us in his second letter to Timothy that those who look and long for Jesus return shall receive the victor’s crown.
My question to you is, “Are you prepared spiritually to meet Jesus?”
First, have you acknowledged your sin and your need for Jesus’ blood to pay the penalty for your sin?
I hope you have, because you don’t want to be here on earth for the Tribulation years.
Second, for those who are followers of Jesus, are you living with the mindset that He could snatch us up to the Wedding Feast of Revelation 19 at any moment?
Jesus told His disciples that He was going to prepare a place for us and that He would return for His Bride, the Church.
Jesus frequently used the Jewish Bridegroom/Bride ritual to illustrate how He would treat the Church.
He is coming to surprise His Bride and steal us away to His Father’s house to celebrate His Wedding Week (7 years).
Are you prepared?
Are you looking for His return, or is life just business as usual?
Bible Prophecy is not meant to scare us; but, to prepare us. If you’re not prepared, you will be scared!
Paul tells us to prepare by living out of His grace which teaches us to say, “NO” to ungodliness and worldly passions and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age.
Beloved, our Bridegroom is coming and world events are indicating that He is coming soon.
Ask the Spirit to show you any areas where you are compromising with the flesh.
Whatever He shows you, repent.
Ask Him to show you the lie behind the temptation and to speak His truth to the lie.
Then, acknowledge your dependence on Him to express His life through you for His glory!
