Will You Wait? (Part Three)


Today we have various people and sect making predictions and statements about the end of the world. Some say it is eminent. Others say several events still have to take place. Which do we believe? Which do you follow?

A certain sect predicted the world would end in 1975. Others, not learning from the error of their ways, and in their foolishness and pride, have since predicted other dates.
Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows. (Matthew 24:4, 36, NLT)
Rather than live our lives to be ready for His coming, ANY TIME – both in the short and long term, we get ourselves busy chasing after shadows. We get ourselves busy trying to time God. Rather than seek to have extra oil, we, like sheep meant for the slaughter, follow after the examples of the foolish virgins. [Matthew 25:1-13] In our presumption, we think we can out smart God.

Our call is to rest, trust and wait on God. Will you?
