Scripture Verse

Be ye therefore ready also; for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.

Friend, the Holy Spirit is calling all men and women into the knowledge of who Jesus is.

The time is at hand in the world when if the Lord so desires, He can come back as the Mighty Conqueror and all who believe and are alive will be raised up to the heavens to be with Him; all who are deceased who "sleep" will be raised to be with Him and all those saints of Heaven will be with Him.

In the scripture verse above, He advises us to be ready. Ready how?

He means that we do not let our faith and belief wane; that we do not give in to the strife in the world and think that He is not helping us.

It is important to know in your heart and mind that He is the All Powerful God and He has a Plan according to His Law which is Perfect, to overcome evil.

He has been fair with evil. It will one day have had it's "day in the sun" and will be plunged into the bottomless pit.

Many of the signs, according to Biblical scholars are ready for His Second Coming.

If we say in our heart, "My Lord delayed His coming" and fall back into sinful living, thinking and ways then...

The Lord of that servant (man) will come in a day when he looketh not for Him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him  asunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers. Luke 12:46

Friend, do you see how important it is for us to be faithful believers?

Don't let the world and all it's offerings deceive you.

Eat, drink and be merry is not a good mantra. This does not mean that we cannot eat and drink and be merry - it just should not be a lifestyle choice that overrides belief in Jesus, God's Son. (After all, Jesus did turn water into wine - fine wine - at the wedding feast. His first public miracle.)

God does not want us worrying, or being unhappy. Our joy comes from inside knowing He is in control and that we have a Holy Just God as our Father, and that we belong in the Heavenly Kingdom.
