Just Be Ready

And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.”

—Acts 1:7

I’m a student of Bible prophecy, and I believe the Lord could come back at any time. I believe we’ve seen signs of the times and prophecies fulfilled before our very eyes, not the least of which is the return of the Jewish people to the land of Israel.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


At the same time, I have seen people who claim to have discovered special Bible codes and to have determined the day of Jesus’ return. Yet Jesus said, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father” (Mark 13:32).

As the book of Acts opens, Jesus is alive, and the disciples return to an old idea: “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6). They still didn’t quite get it. They were excited that the Lord was alive again, but they were saying, in effect, “Okay, we are back to business as usual. It’s really weird the way You got crucified, but You’re alive, and it’s wonderful. Now, let’s get the kingdom established.” They still thought Jesus was coming to establish an earthly kingdom and overthrow the power of Rome.

But Jesus responded, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority” (verse 7). He was saying, “This is not the thing for you to be concerned with right now.”

Jesus was saying to them (and to us), “Don’t be so worried about when I am coming. Rather, focus on what you are to be doing while you await My coming. Don’t worry about the when. Just be ready, because it could happen at any moment.”

As we look at history, we see that the Roman Empire eventually crumbled . . . but the gospel prevailed.

It is vitally important that we all take the time to like and share articles regardless of what site you are on. Conservative sites (like this one) cannot count on traffic from Facebook etc. any more. Subscribing is also important; this bypasses the censorship. The more that we can get the word out the better – and in order to continue bringing you content like this – we ALL need traffic in order to survive. Running a website is not only expensive, it also takes a lot of time and effort.

No one likes ads, but very few people will donate, hence the reason most of us have ads.
