Times of the Season
When I was young…I don’t think my parents told me too much that was
happening in the future because it always seemed so far away! I must have
asked many times, when are they coming, when are we going, how long will it
take to get there, are we there yet. Time moved sooo slow!
As I am
older…2017 has slipped by – somethings quietly, some painful, some joyful.
Now 2018 is marching ahead at a fast cadence!
Much of the current
news highlights the ongoing method to solve disagreements and personal
troubles is to shoot people around us and themselves.
Why is the news
important to the church website?
1. None of us know the day, God will
ask us to come home to heaven to live with Him.
2. None of know the
day when Jesus will come the second time and take all His children to live
The Son of God, chose to take our sins to the cross
that each of us would know His unlimited love for us
So that we would ask

There is no guarantee for today. You may be driving down the
street in a quiet town and a bullet may ricochet in your direction, an
unavoidable accident may occur, an unknown health issue may suddenly happen
and God uses those instances to call you to heaven!
God may also
decide today that everyone has had a chance to hear the Good News of Jesus,
say enough is enough to this world, send Jesus to gather all of His Children
together and take them with Him to heaven
Be prepared - If you have
not accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you are not a child of God. You
will be judged and hell will be your new living space. Jokes are made about
living in hell because heaven won’t accept our ticket or St. Peter won’t
open the heavenly door.
It’s no joke! God’s grace will accept anyone
with a ‘past’ – no matter what we may have done yesterday and in our past!
Ask for His forgiveness, He promises to grant it – unless you have waited
until you have breathed your last breath! Then it’s too late!
Contact a godly person to let them know of your decision.
Following God is a wonderful life journey where you don’t have to wait until
heaven to experience and hear God’s direction.
