Now is the day of salvation, but night is coming

The end is near. Jesus is coming back soon…I just know it. If you’ve been putting off faith in God because you figured you had plenty of time to repent, I’d suggest getting on your knees right now.

I’m not by nature an alarmist, and I don’t have any inside information so take my prediction with a grain of salt. It just seems like we’re getting too far off the rails to avoid jumping the tracks completely and colliding with the reality of a God who has had enough. Wrong is right; lies are truth; males are females. Babies are parasites; speech is violence; math is oppressive.

What’s going on? Is climate change affecting people’s brains? Is it something in the water? We’re seeing such a high level of stupid, one wonders if it corresponds to a high level of lead.

No. I’m quite positive what we’re seeing are the natural consequences of once healthy branches being severed from the vine. What’s going on is that we’re cutting ourselves off from God in increasing numbers, and the correlating numbers of idiotic, immoral, and “I am just dumbfounded by” incidents are clear evidence of it.

Or, to use a third but also apt metaphor, in untethering ourselves from what grounded us we’re left floating unguided in space, not knowing which way is up. Without faith in God as our anchor, any which way is up…or down…left or right. We’re on our own…spinning and fumbling for something to hold on to…and any conclusion or viewpoint is as good as the next.

If God is thought not to exist, or his authority is rejected, we have no objective standard by which to judge what is right or wrong. And apart from a Creator who designed us for a purpose, there is no “way that things are supposed to be.” So why not decide that men can become women, or a boy can be a girl if that’s what his mother wants?

You know…God is merciful and is still available for anyone to get reconnected to if they reach out for him. All you gotta’ do is raise your hand and he’ll grab it. But a day is coming when his arm will have done all the saving it can and he will withdraw it and grab a gavel instead.

And on that day, woe to those who call evil good, and darkness light. 

Behold, the Lord GOD comes with might, and his arm rules for him; behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. – Isaiah 40:10

For he says, “In a favorable time I listened to you, and in a day of salvation I have helped you.” Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation. – 2 Corinthians 6:2

Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! The one sitting on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. – Revelation 19:11
