Just yesterday, the above photo of my daughter and I was taken, yet that was five years ago. Just yesterday, we were celebrating Valentines Day 2020, with not a clue as to what would happening world wide in less than a months time. Just yesterday, we were sitting around the table as a family, yet today one of us is gone. Isn’t it funny how life can change in an instant?
So much has happened over the last four months. Yet, it seems like just yesterday we were all living our normal lives. It’s hard to imagine living that “normal” life again. As believers in Christ Jesus we know that time is short, and that day which has been long awaited is quickly approaching. Over the last four months I’ve been doing much research, Bible study, and seeking of the Lord. As believers we are to be uplifting and encouraging each other during this time.
One day soon, the trumpet of God will sound, and believers in Christ Jesus will rise to meet Him in the clouds. This will happen in the blink of an eye, so quickly, there will be no chance to make a choice. Are you ready to hear that trumpet sound?
“For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ (those who have died believing in Jesus as their Savior) shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
Just yesterday, it was March 16, 2020, and our lock down quarantine began. We can not be sure of tomorrow, but we have this moment. When we look at the lives of the disciples, each one of them, with the exception of John, was put to death for preaching the name of Jesus. How did they handle it? They simply continued telling others about Jesus, even as they were being put to death. So, this should be an example to us. We are to encourage fellow believers, and be telling others about our Lord, until the very end. In eternity, all of this will seem so very far away.
