Last week, I just could not bring myself to post my weekly blog. Not that there was a lack of topics or subjects that I hold dear and close to my heart. Just felt it was not the right time. I’m sure many of you go through this at one point or other. Then I was not feeling well by the middle of the week, had a family emergency to take care of so the week past and no blog 😦
This morning there is one topic that is on my mind. It has been for several years now, but the subject has been creeping up more in the past few months and that is about Pre-Tribulation, Mid-Tribulation and Post-Tribulation. I have read many different aspects on this one, that brought valid scriptures. But no matter how valid and how true the points were made on each one… there is only one that I see clearly each time I pray about it: And that is this scripture: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” – Matthew 24:36 KJV I never accepted a date setting, I can tell the signs of times that surrounds us throughout the world we are on the verge. But one year can still mean a thousand year to God. His timeframe is not the same earthly time frame. All in all, I feel we need to focus more on being prepared both physically and spiritually, keep our faith in God, to let Him guide us, pray daily, read and meditate on His word. But not to focus on the rapture alone saying: “I don’t have to worry about the coming tribulation for I will be raptured first!” Please! What if that is your only focus and God did not attend that to happen and you are in the midst of the tribulation? Wouldn’t you rather be prepared spiritually and help others during this time instead so they to can be prepared come Judgment day? Do you think the Disciples were focussing on the rapture instead of spreading the Gospel? That is my thoughts here on this subject. I don’t want to make it sound I want another discussion or argument on this subject. In fact I am tired of that. I want us to focus instead on what Jesus called us to do instead. To be “fishers of men”
This blog is not meant to sound as preachy, nor to open a can of worms. Just take a moment to let it sink in and focus on what is more important for all. To believe, to have faith, to pray, and to love one another.
