A New Year

Happy New Year!

Can hardly believe the year is so soon over and a new one started. 2008...remember just 8 years ago, everyone was so panicked that our computers were going to freeze and the world would end? and we are still here...I am a little tired to the news media who panic everyone with scary end of the world stories....the Discovery channel is one of the worst.....I think it started about 25 years ago when acid rain was supposed to destroy all living plants, then it was the new ice age was happening, and now its global warming...or a giant meteor is going to collide with the earth, or the volcano under Yellowstone will erupt or there will be mega earthquakes and tidal waves....sigh
and yet we are still here..

the Bible teaches that we won't know when the Lord will come,
2 Peter 3:2-4

I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through the apostles.

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation."
We need to be ready at all times, because we do not know when He will come...
Matthew 22:44
"So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."

If you are ready at all times, you don't need to worry about all the panic stories that are all over the TV...

Are you ready? Do you know Him? In 2008, let us be ready for His coming!
Maranatha! Come, Lord Jesus!
