Rejoice evermore! Pray without ceasing. In everything give thanks, for this is the will of GOD in Christ Jesus concerning you. Quench not the Spirit. Despise not prophesying. Prove all things; hold fast that which is good. Abstain from all appearance of evil.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-22 (KJV)
Read the entire chapter of I Thessalonians chapter 5, Paul warns the congregation to be ready “the Day of the LORD so cometh as a thief in the night”.
Note: Consider the days of Noah, the populace were not attentive to the Holy Word of Most High GOD, and didn’t realize that during their business & pleasures of this earth, that Noah and his family were boarding the “ark of safety”. Noah believed in the Most High GOD, and was ready (righteous living); and escaped the Wrath of GOD. In the midst of utter chaos on earth, Noah and his family were saved. Why? Because they neither leaned to the left nor to the right, but wholly trusted in the Most High GOD.
We have opportunity in this 21st century to “get ready, stay ready and be ready”. We do not know when Yahshua will return.
Read John chapters 14-16 and hear what Yahshua told His disciples. Think on this, Yahshua never sugar-coated our walk with Him. In this world you will have tribulation and be persecuted, but be of good cheer, Yahshua has overcome the world, and remember that He is our “Ark of Safety”, but we have to be hearers and doers of the Holy Word of the Most High GOD and BELIEVE in His Son, Yahshua ha Mashiach/Jesus Christ whom He sent to bless us.
Yahshua stated: I Am the Way, the Truth, and the Life
