Very few people are ready for the return of the Lord Jesus
Christ. There are many Christians that believe that they are saved but they
don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ. We need to be in a tight
relationship with the King or else we will not be saved.
The Lord Jesus said: Not every one who says to Me, Lord, Lord will enter
into the Kingdom but those who do the will of My Father. The will of the Father
is that we OBEY the SON. We must be in a relationship with the Lord Jesus
Christ every moment of our lives. There are very few people that are in a
relationship with Christ. Few people really seek God not even in the same
house. You will find that in a house
maybe one partner, one spouse will be serious with the Lord Jesus and
the other one is not serious. The one will be taken when the Lord comes and the
other one will stay behind. That is what the Lord Jesus said. We read in
Matthew 24:40-42 “Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and
the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall
be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour
your Lord doth come.”
Is Jesus really your Lord, is He really the King of your life? Is He the
most important person in your life? Are you spending your entire life every
living moment in service of the King? Jesus is the King of that Kingdom and
unless we regard Him as King and serve Him as King, treasure His Words and
treasured spending time with Him then He is not really our King.
The door is closing and very, very few people are ready, extremely few. Now
is the time to get ready. We each must have extra oil in our lamps, we cannot
look at each other. Each of us will stand before the judgment throne of Christ.
We love our spouses, we love our children and we pray for them but in the end
it is you and Jesus alone, there is not going to be anybody there with us.
One will be taken and the one will be left. It is sad but it is true. We
have the opportunity now to make sure that we are taken and not left.
