Well, it’s happening again! Southeast Missouri is preparing for a “First Alert Action Weather Day!” or perhaps a “Weather Week,” if the forecasters are close to being right this time. We’re supposed to have temperatures around ZERO the next couple of days and snow is supposed to start on Sunday night, resulting in several inches of the “white stuff” to go over our solid sheet of ice that we got this week. The grocery store parking lots are FULL! Milk, bread, eggs – they are flying off the shelves! Folks are panicking and preparing. People are getting ready to “hibernate” for a long winter’s nap because they hear that a storm is coming.
But guess what? Judgment Day is also coming. Are you preparing? It is a day when all will stand before God. Paul told the church in Corinth, “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad” (II Corinthians 5:10). John caught a glimpse of that day and described it in Revelation 20:12. He said, “And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.” Yes, it is most assuredly coming! Now, we don’t know the exact time when Jesus will return, which is why He told His followers to “Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 25:13) Are you ready for Judgment Day?
May we be prepared spiritually for that big event! Don’t get caught unprepared! It’s coming! Simply Blessed! Courtney
