1. SPIRITUAL MATTERS

church.family1
My favorite chapter in the Bible is Matthew 24. Jesus teaches about events that were going to happen in the near future, and things of the distant future [last days], and about his return from heaven. To me, it is exciting to read—and, from my perspective, exciting because I believe our generation is living the last of the last days described.

I love how Jesus does NOT pull punches—he is honest and straightforward as always. Jesus does NOT sugar-coat the realities of living in an evil world. However, after being straight-forward about the trials [persecutions] to come, he leaves us with HOPE—he is coming back and will defeat evil once and for all.

We have just left a tumultuous 2018 behind. And 2019 does not appear to be one that will bring peace and tranquility in America. And just because you are a Christian, certainly does NOT exclude you from the battles [worldly-religiously] and their consequences. In fact, you are becoming more of a target of evil every day. And don’t doubt, it is going to get worse.

Jesus warns, “…you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death….” [Vs. 9] ARE YOU READY? And for me, that is the main message of Matthew 24—ARE YOU READY?

Then in Vs. 10 Jesus tells us what will happen with those who are NOT ready. They “…will turn away from the faith.” But my Christian friends, you don’t have to be part of the “turning away.”

Jesus warns us, “Watch out that no one deceive you” [Vs. 4]. And how do we get to that point of not being deceived?

Know the scriptures—test the spirits [teachers, preachers, false prophets] against the scriptures—pray for wisdom—“keep watch” [Vs. 42]—“be ready” [Vs. 44].

There is a sentence that Jesus speaks that I strongly suggest you read, study, and pray over this 2019, in Matthew 24. It is verse 13.

I won’t comment on it, other than to say, study it with “keep watch” [Vs. 42]—“be ready” [Vs. 44] in view.

I will leave you with this. No matter what 2019 brings you, live it out in the ATTITUDE OF CHRIST.
