Do you find it difficult to keep your eyes focused forward? Most believers in today’s society find it easier to be busy than take time to be people who proclaim the message of the cross.
Everyone around us is living their lives forgetting that one day everything they know will come to an end. What people forget is that there is a life after the world comes to its end and that end is going to come rapidly and without warning. I believe that we are living in the beginning of the end or the beginning of sorrows that Jesus talked about in Matthew 24.
Jesus said that no man will know the day or the hour. But one thing we know, he will return and will return soon. This is something that pastors and leaders have been saying for years.
If we want our lives to be successful we need to understand that our lives are not our own, our lives belong to the Lord. However, we need to live our life for righteousness sake. But what does that look like? What are the choices we must make to live lives of grace?
Psalm 118:19-22; “Open to me the gates of righteousness; I will go through them, and I will praise the Lord. This is the gate of the Lord, through which the righteous shall enter. I will praise You, for You have answered me, and have become my salvation. The stone which the builders rejected has become the Chief Cornerstone…”

I am My Beloved’s and my beloved is mine. Christ is not ours because we are not Christ’s. Our whole life is to be about Christ and Him crucified with Him maintaining the first in our life. Because when we are Christ’s, He is ours.
1JN 2:15-16 NKJV
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world.
Song of Solomon 6:3 NKJV
I am my beloved’s, And my beloved is mine. He feeds his flock among the lilies.
I was recently on Facebook and happened to visit the LEFT BEHIND MOVIE page for updates or a new trailer. They posted this question….
Are any “Left Behind” fans planning to watch the premiere of “The Leftovers” on HBO this weekend? Have any of you read the book “The Leftovers”? Let us know what you think!
Iraq is about to fall. Russia is slowly reclaiming their empire. Iran, Egypt and Syria have their qualms with Israel. Al Qaeda is on the rise, stronger than ever before. School shootings are rising. Civil unrest is happening all around the world.
What is happening? It seems as if all hell is breaking lose. The reality is… it is. The Bible is very clear that in the final days war, rumors of wars, plagues and evil would be on the rise and prevalent. I remember the day I woke up to a new and scary world.
