READ: Luke 9:57 -62
57 And it came to pass, that, as they went in the way, a certain man said unto him, Lord, I will follow thee whithersoever thou goest.

58 And Jesus said unto him, Foxes have holes, and birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.

59 And he said unto another, Follow me. But he said, Lord, suffer me first to go and bury my father.

60 Jesus said unto him, Let the dead bury their dead: but go thou and preach the kingdom of God.

61 And another also said, Lord, I will follow thee; but let me first go bid them farewell, which are at home at my house.

62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

MESSAGE
On the first of January 2018, I announced when sharing the prophecies for the year that God said the countdown to the end had begun that year. Jesus Christ is coming back really soon. In today’s Bible reading, He gave us the signs to show us His coming is near- famine, earthquakes and pestilence in diverse places, saying that all these would be the beginning of sorrows.

In the original Greek language, the word translated ‘sorrow’ there actually means ‘labour pains’. In other words, the world would be going through labour pains in order to give birth to the new world which is the New Jerusalem. When a pregnant woman is about to give birth, she would start having pains, but as she gets closer to delivery, the pains would increase and come more frequently than before. If you check the statistics, you would see that the things Jesus said would be the beginning of labour pains have been happening more intensely and frequently in the last couple of years, than ever before. The earthquakes are more serious and widespread; even places that had never experienced earthquakes before are also having their share. The pestilences are spreading much faster around the world. These should tell you that the end is almost here.

And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
Matthew 24:14

As Jesus said, the gospel of the kingdom of God will be preached in all the world and when this happens, then the end shall come. If you look around the world, you will see more and more countries opening their boarders and allowing the gospel to be preached in their nations. I believe that all we are waiting for is for everyone to hear the gospel, so as to have a chance to give their lives to Christ and then, rapture will take place.

No one knows the date or the hour when Jesus Christ will come to take His children, so if you are not one of His children now, you will be left behind when He comes. If, however, you have already surrendered your life to Jesus, Please hold on to Him to the very end (Matthew 24:13); We are in the last days already are you ready for rapture?

REFLECTION
Be honest with yourself; if rapture happens today , will you be among those who will make it to heaven?

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: JUDGES 10-13

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

HYMN 5: HAVE YOU BEEN TO JESUS
1. Have you been to Jesus for the cleansing pow’r?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Are you fully trusting in His grace this hour?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

Refrains
Are you washed in the blood,
In the soul-cleansing blood of the Lamb?
Are your garments spotless? Are they white as snow?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

2. Are you walking daily by the Savior’s side?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Do you rest each moment in the Crucified?
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?

3. When the Bridegroom cometh will your robes be white!
Are you washed in the blood of the Lamb?
Will your soul be ready for His presence bright,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb?

4. Lay aside the garments that are stained with sin,
And be washed in the blood of the Lamb;
There’s a fountain flowing for the soul unclean,
O be washed in the blood of the Lamb.
