The Hour of Preparation is NOW

1 Blessed is the man that walketh not 
in the counsel of the ungodly, 
nor standeth in the way of sinners, 
nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.
2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.
3 And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, 
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; 
his leaf also shall not wither; 
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
4 The ungodly are not so: 
but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, 
nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.
6 For the Lord knoweth the way of the righteous: 
but the way of the ungodly shall perish.

Psalm 1:1-6 
King James Version

Are people prepared for when Jesus comes, this time around?

Do people care at all?

We do not know when God will send Jesus again, but Jesus clearly said:

36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, 
no, not the angels of heaven, 
but my Father only.

Matthew 24:36 (KJV)

How, then are we to prepare for the LORD?

Perhaps, the real question is, do you care to be WITH the Lord?

If you believe in Jesus, and wish to follow Him, then you will read His instructions from SCRIPTURE, and allow the Holy SPIRIT of God to explain things to you as you study the WORD of God, and as you observe the world.

Only those who care to be WITH the Lord, would care to prepare.

They would do everything by God's Book, by Jesus' instructions, following the prompts of the Holy Spirit.

It is a daily discipline, a daily task, a daily devotion.

It is not difficult, if your heart is right with the LORD.

In fact, there is no other way to be, except to follow Jesus.

A person who wishes to be with God, will be like a child, delighted in the prospect.

2 But his delight is in the law of the Lord; 
and in his law doth he meditate day and night.

Psalm 1:2 (KJV)

The laws of man don't reflect the LAWS of God.

If it were, if it had, or if it did, the world would reflect the PEACE of Jesus.

It would reflect the LOVE He taught us.

It would reflect the KINGDOM of God.

There would be no poor, marginalized families everywhere, in every part of the world.

There would be no corruption.

Everyone would have the proper food, clothing, shelter, and comfort due each one of us, as we are all children of God.

We would not even have to fight for justice.

We can live, work, breathe, think, praise freely -- as God would have us.

Read Matthew 24, for prophecies by JESUS, for what is to come, and how we are to be.

All who love Christ, will prepare for His Coming.

We will watch, wait, pray.

We will repent for our sins, for time is short.

We will lead others back to God, by leading them back to Jesus' WORDS in Scripture.

The SON of God had already shown us the WAY.

Our duty, and delight, should be to follow that PATH of Jesus.

How can we ever go wrong if we do that?

Believe nothing else the world says.

It is under the "payroll" of the fallen one.

Believe only in JESUS.

Therein lies your peace.

And the world's salvation.
