IS IT GETTING TOO LATE TO PREPARE
In Genesis God made a wonderful garden and put man in it. He came in the cool of the day to walk and commune with man. God gave man all rights and privileges. God gave Adam and Eve, instructions about the tree of the knowledge of good and evil; not to eat of it, (Genesis 2:17). They disobeyed and that was how sin entered the world. In Genesis 3:22-24, God drove them out of the Garden of Eden and placed a Cherubim, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life. So Adam and Eve were driven out and the door was shut. It was too late to obey the word of God. Too late now. You prepare by obeying the word of God at all times; else it may be late to prepare as the door is shut.
Seven days after Noah entered the ark it was too late for anyone to go into it. Because it was shut, (Genesis 7:1-10). God used Noah to warn his generation that he was fed up with them, their wickedness and godlessness. When Noah was building the ark and preaching to the people, not many listened to the man of God. He was called Noah because prophecy was all in his name hidden. Noah means rest and comfort. Because his grandfather was given the name Methuselah by his father Enoch. God must have talked to Enoch about the flood and when it would occur. That it would occur the year of the death of Methuselah; and so Noah who was to witness the flood need rest and comfort of God. God spoke to Noah that the prophecy of the flood was going to fulfill in his watch. And when Noah and all that God needed entered the ark the door was shut, it was too late to prepare. God gave rest and comfort to Noah in the ark as judgment was on the earth.
Some hours after the angels entered Sodom it became too late, as Lot, his wife and two daughters were forcefully pulled out of the city. The door was shut with instructions and Lot’s wife did not heed the instructions and was turned into a pillar of salt. It was too late to keep Sodom and its influences in the heart. Worldliness in your life and heart will keep the door closed against you at translation, too late.
About forty days after Jesus Christ rose from the dead, He ascended up into heaven and it was too late to talk to him face to face. God came in the form or likeness of man but was rejected. It was too late to physically touch the helm of his garment. Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen, (Heb.11:1). Blessed are they that have not seen, and yet believed (John 20:29). It was too late then to visit with Jesus the Christ: He was on earth but many did not take advantage of that.
Soon it will be in an hour you think not when the Bridegroom shall come at midnight and those who are ready will go in and the door will be shut, (Matt 25:1-10). It will then be too late to go in the translation; only perhaps through the great tribulation (Rev. 9), if you can survive it. Why would you want the door to be shut against you, when to day is the day of salvation?
There is still time to prepare, but it is not much time. Tomorrow may be too late. Are you sure of the next moment, that you will be alive? If you think you have time, you may be surprised that you are preparing late. Look at the world as it is today, and all that is happening; you can see, if you look properly, that the door is getting closed on this world: And it will be too late. This is the last time to prepare soon it will be late for the door will be shut when people come missing, in the translation.
Repent and be converted, forsaking your sins through confession and washing of your sins by the blood of Jesus Christ. Get baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ (not in titles or common nouns, Father, Son and Holy Ghost). Matt. 28:19, Jesus said baptizing them in the name not names. Jesus Christ is that NAME, for the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, (John 5:43). Go to a small bible believing church, be baptized in the Holy Ghost, witnessing to other about your salvation, practice holiness, purity and be full of expectancy about the translation which is the promise of God in John14:1-3. Meditate on Psalm 119:49. Hurry before the door is shut and it becomes too late, one second after the translation. It will happen suddenly, in an hour you think not, in a moment, in a twinkling of an eye, (1st Cor. 15:51-58). Hurry up.
