IN AN HOUR YOU THINK NOT
“But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father. Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at mid-night, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping” (Mark 13:35). There is coming a big separation between heaven and earth. The Lord Jesus Christ is coming for His own. He gave His life for the world. For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life (John 3:16).
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye maybe accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:36). There are a lot of things happening in the world today that fulfill these scriptures. Greed is a major tool that the devil is trying to use today to destroy the church of Christ the Lord. There are more churches all over the world than in the last 50 years. The main reason for the rise of many churches is greed. The so-called ministers are out to build religious empires, teaching false doctrines and preying on the vulnerable, weak and the fearful. Prosperity preaching is one of the traps of these greedy manipulators.
Matt.24:44 reads, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” The Lord Himself made this statement while talking to the multitude. e Heh Then He turned to his apostles and said “Be ye also ready.” Even if you are saved, you need to examine yourself to make sure you are in the faith. Study the promises of God and understand them and what to expect. In scroll 172, paragraph 3, Brother Neal Frisby wrote, “Watch and pray. Jesus said, hold fast till I come. Get a quick hold on God’s promises and stay with it. Our light should be burning as a witness.” The major way to get ready is to know the promises of God and hold fast to them. For example as follows: “I will never leave you nor forsake you; “I go to prepare a place for you. I will come and take you unto myself that where I am there you may be also.” Get a quick hold of these promises and stay with them.
Surely the Lord God will do nothing, but he revealeth his secrets unto his servants the prophets (Amos 3:7). The Lord has sent us rain, the former and the latter rain. The teaching and the harvest rain are here with us. God, through his prophets and apostles, has told us about the coming translation as in 1st Corinthians 15:51- 58. Find these secrets and take heed of what the Lord told us. Whatever the men said must line up with the bible. The season of the translation is here; Israel is back in their homeland. The churches are uniting or bundling up and they know it not. This is harvest time and the tares have to be bundled first before the quick short work will gather momentum. Angels will accomplish the separation and harvest.
Matt. 25 2-10 makes it absolutely clear or definite conclusion that part was taken and part was left behind. “But ye, brethren are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all children of light, and the children of the day, we are not of the night, nor of darkness. Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breast plate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation” (1st Thessalonians 5:4-8).
In scroll 172 paragraph 5, Neal Frisby wrote “Use these scriptures as a guideline to keep your confidence that the true Church will be translated before the mark of the beast.” In Rev. 22 the Lord said, “Behold I come quickly” three times. This shows the degree of urgency of the Lord’s warning of His coming. He said in an hour you think not the Lord will come; suddenly, in a twinkling of an eye, in a moment, with a shout, with the voice, and at the last trump. The hour is drawing nearer. Be ye also ready. If you are not sure you are ready or even saved, this is the time to hurry up and resolve these issues. Check yourself, acknowledge you are a sinner, and know that Jesus Christ is the only solution for sin. Repent and accept the blood of atonement, be baptized, set a time to study the bible, praise and pray. Find a bible believing church to attend. But if you are already saved and backslidden and not ready to meet the Lord, go to Galatians 5 and James 5. Study these scriptures prayerfully and be ready to meet the Lord in the air through by resurrection or the catching away in the translation.
