Twas the night before Jesus

Magnificent Promises

Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the place,

Not a creature was praying  not one on their face.

Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care, In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not one ever kneeling or bowing a head.

And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap,
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.

With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray,
I knew in a moment this must be THE DAY!

The light of His face made me cover my head,
It was Jesus returning just like He had said.

And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth,
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

In the Book of Life which He held in His hand,
Was written the name of every saved man.

He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said “It’s not here” my head hung in shame.

The people whose names had been written with love,
He gathered to take to His Father above.

With those who were ready He rose without a sound,
While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was too late,
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.

I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear,
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.

There’s only one life and when comes the last call,
We’ll find that the Bible was true after all!

Are You Ready???


 

Here’s my question to you… Are you ready to meet Jesus? All the prophecies in the Bible has been or is being fulfilled at this time.  Are you prepared for the coming of our Lord? Is there any doubt about your salvation and that your name is in the Book of Life?  Maybe you go to Church every Sunday, give generously to the Ministry, sing in the choir or maybe even a Sunday School teacher. None of these things will save your soul. We are all standing on the edge of eternity. None of us are promised another day. So please don’t put this off!  Jesus might return at any time.  There is no better time than the present to start or maybe renew your relationship with God. Take a moment right now and dedicate yourself to Christ Our Savior.

Please… if you don’t know Christ or have fallen away please pray… Tell God you believe His Son Jesus paid for your sins and rose again. Tell God you are sorry and want to start Living for Him. He will forgive your sins and mistakes and give you Everlasting Life with Him… and place His Spirit deep within your heart. In 1 John 1:9 says, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Please remember this… To enter the Kingdom of Heaven you must have a relationship with God.  Are you ready?

I pray that God will truly Help and Bless you.
