Scripture: Matthew (NIV) 24:4 And Jesus answered and saidunto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. 5 For many shall come in my name,saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 6 And ye shall hear of wars andrumors of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come topass, but the end is not yet. 7 For nation shall rise against nation,and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, andearthquakes, in divers places. 8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.
12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. 13 Buthe that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. 14 And thisgospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto allnations; and then shall the end come.
Observation: Therewas a generation of real people alive when God sent the flood and destroyed theearth except for Noah and those with him on the ark. There was a generation of real people alivewhen God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire. There was a generation of real people alive whenGod, the Son, walked the earth. Therewill be a generation of real people alive on the earth when events begin tobuild toward the end. There will be ageneration of real people alive on earth when the time of the end shall come!
Application: I might be a part of that generation. The probability of anyone alive today being apart of that generation is extremely high. To not take warning is foolish. To not spread the warning is wasting our time.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, anoint me and flow through mewith a warning appropriate for today. Help me not be foolish nor be wasting my time. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
