I see a lot of stuff online about signs of Jesus returning. I am not saying that it isn’t the case because it very well may be soon. But one thing we forget is that time is only relative to us here on earth. God is not constrained by time: “But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.” 2 Peter 3:8
We play games with God as if we can con Him like we can the people of this world. We play Christian and have the outward appearance of one, while we’re dying on the inside. When it is our time to leave this earth, whether that is through death or Jesus returning, there will be no room for fakes. Only the ones with the inward relationship with Jesus, the ones that allowed Him in to their lives, will be found worthy.
I do feel that God is trying to get our attention. Not necessarily as a nation, being American doesn’t grant you entrance into heaven. Not as denominations because we created those. I feel God is trying to get our attention as individuals. Allowing things, drastic things, to happen to open our eyes. Not our physical eyes but our spiritual ones. Where do we stand with Him?
A true relationship with Jesus is the only way into heaven. Jesus had a conversation with a man named Nicodemus in John 3:1-21. In verse 3 “Jesus answered and said ‘most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he can see the Kingdom of God'”. Nicodemus was confused and asked how that could be physically possible. And Jesus clarified that He was talking about a spiritual birth in verse 5 “Jesus answered, ‘Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God'”
It is also mentioned in Acts 4:12 “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”
If the people we are following aren’t pointing us to Jesus then we’re headed in the wrong direction. If the people we seek council from aren’t giving us Biblical answers and pointing us to Jesus then we’re being misled.
In what direction are you heading? There is only one way to God and there is only one way to heaven and that is Jesus. If Jesus returns today, will you be ready? If the answer is no then we can help lead you in the right direction. If you are not sure then we can help.
