In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ripped from the Headlines!.”
The headline that grabbed my attention was one which read “Space junk to hit Earth.” Astronomers are tracking it, and they think it will test our readiness for any future atmospheric events. (CNN News)
Someone is about to return to this earth, and I’m not sure how many are tracking His approach. While we do not know when His actual return is, we do know that there are signs that tell us that His coming is near. Matthew 24: 36 But of the day and hour (of Jesus return) no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, but my Father only. Now is the time for us to get ready so that we may be saved. Some of the sign that shows us we are living at the end of time are:
1 Many people using God’s name, when they do not really know who He is.
2 Much unrest with nation fighting against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.
3 There will be famines, pestilences (Plagues, viruses, deadly diseases,) and earthquakes. We now see these things more frequently, thus Global Warming.
4 Christians being killed and hated because they believe in God.
5 There will be an abundance of lawlessness (anarchy, chaos, disorder, unruliness,) whatever you choose to call it, it is a sign of the end of times.
6 The love of many will grow cold….all this is taken from Matthew 24
At this moment in the world, hate seems to be thriving, but we know that it will not win out. The bigger battle that is ongoing right now, but not being seen by many is a battle between God and Satan, a battle between Good and Evil. This battle is taking place in each of our minds, and we will either lean toward the “Good” which is from “God, or we will go towards the “Evil” which is from Satan. This is what God will do for us when we keep our minds focus on Him. “You will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed (remains) on you. Because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3. And if our minds are not focused on Christ, we are saying we choose to walk with Satan, there is no middle ground I see here. We either choose to walk in light or in darkness.
So just as the scientist track the Space Junk that is about to hit this earth, year after year, we are to look at the signs around us, prepare ourselves, and know that the coming of the Lord is near, and He will soon break the clouds in all His glory.
