TRANSLATION MOMENTS- 13
In Matt.26:18, Jesus Christ said, “My time is at hand.” This He said because He knew the time of His death and return to glory was near. All His attention was geared towards fulfilling what He came to earth for and returning to heaven via paradise. He was focused, severing ties with the world system because this was not home to him.
Many of us do not remember that this present earth is not our home. Remember Abraham in Hebrews 11:10 said, “For he looked for a city which hath foundations (Revelation 21:14-19, reminds one of such), whose builder and maker is God.” Our days on earth for the true believers is almost up, and any moment. Let us stay focused as Our Lord Jesus Christ.
He was always reminding His disciples of His departure, and towards the few days to it He said less, because He expected those who have ears to hear to have heard. As our departure approaches let us be heavenly minded to see Our Lord and our faithful brethren who have gone before us. If we ever need to be led by the Spirit it is NOW.
It is difficult to fast and pray today more than ever, because the pressures of the wicked one are coming, and different distractions and discouragements. But this is no reason not to ready at all times. Missing the translation is very expensive, don’t take that chance. Have you ever imagined, the loving care of Jesus, turning to the wrath of the Lamb. He is righteous altogether and perfect in all, including His judgment.
Do not forget Matt 26:14-16, Judas Iscariot covenanted with the chief priests to betray Our Lord for 30pieces of silver. The Bible said, “And from that time he sought opportunity to betray Him.” The people who will betray the believers are already making the deals and covenanting with the wicked one and his representatives. Some like Judas Iscariot are among us and some were with us sometime. If they were of us they would remain, but Judas and his type did not remain. Betrayals are coming but be strong in the Lord. Jesus said in verse 23, “He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, the same shall betray me.”
Our hour is approaching let us be of good cheer. Heaven is expectant of the return of the overcomers. We overcame satan and all his pit falls and traps and darts. Angels we look at us with amazement, when we shall tell our stories of how we overcame. Hebrews 11:40 reads, “that they without us should not be made perfect.” Let us do all we can to be found faithful. Finally, study all of Romans 8 and end it, “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?”
