Welcome 

A Thought from Interim Director of Missions / Moderator Barry

    The other day we had severe weather warnings come across our radios informing us that severe weather was pending and that we should make preparations and be ready for possible life-threatening weather.  So, many of us took time to make sure we had plenty of flashlights, extra batteries, water stored up, extra blankets, and a place where our family could go if a tornado or strong winds damaged our homes.  

    We make those preparations when we have plenty of warning, and some people just don't do anything at all!  They think they can just weather out the storm, and everything will be OK!   

    Too many of us take this same attitude of preparation concerning the Lord’s return.  I hear many people say, “I’m looking for the signs!  The warnings!  And clear events!”  The scripture is very clear!  It tells us the things that we need to be looking out for.  And even if we don't understand everything the Scripture tells us concerning the Lord’s return, His promise should be enough!  He said that He would return!  This should be enough to invoke in us a time to make preparation.

    We are told that we have today.  That now is the time of our salvation if we would only accept Jesus as our Lord!  But our enemy, Satan, keeps telling us that we don't have to decide that today – you can wait until tomorrow.  I believe he knows that tomorrow will be too late for many of us.  And for those that wait, they will become his slaves for eternity.

    Don’t wait until all the events are fulfilled from Scripture.  Don't wait until that great trumpet sounds.  Don't wait until the Lord returns and then have to say to yourself, why did I not make preparation?  Why was I not ready?  Those will be some of the last words people will utter in anguish on that day!

    On that day His children, which are called Christians, will be gathered up and taken from this world.  There will be no sirens.  No radio broadcast.  No immediate warnings.  Because, we have already been given everything we need to know about His return.  The question is, are you ready for the storm of His return?
