A Company may celebrate its grand opening by giving prizes to the first 100 customers or awarding the one millionth customer many gifts. But have we ever given much thought for what will happen when the very last person on Earth comes to trust & obey Jesus as Lord and Savior? In that hour, Christ will come for His church. “And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17). This will be more glorious than any one can imagine, the inheritance is larger than life and out of this world! But it is reserved exclusively for that very last person who was just added to the Church, belonging to Christ. Every faithful child of God from the beginning of Adam’s family to that very last person will inherit eternal glory. Then, for the rest of the story and everyone that does not belong to God in Jesus Christ, an awful judgment will follow…one in which everyone else meets condemnation & a fiery end to this life. The Apostle Paul makes it clear that those who do not believe will be punished “because they refused to love the truth and so be saved.” (II Thessalonians 2:10) It is necessary to examine our own heart. Have we really trusted in Christ’s promise to forgive and been born again by faith in His baptism? If not, now is the time. Do we feel the urgency to tell people about Christ and His love. Please prayerfully intercede for this society. God is still waiting for lost people to come to Him.
