My Words Will Not Pass Away

My Words  Will Not  Pass Away

There are some Bible verses  that make a person  kinda think,  “Oh, oh!     Maybe I’d better listen up.”

Luke 21:33  is one  of those verses.     There Jesus says,  “Heaven  and earth  will pass away,  but My words  will not pass away.”

In that chapter  Jesus was telling  His followers  about the end times.     Between  all the disasters prophesied  and family members  hating one another — killing one another — all because  of the name  of Christ — it will be  a time  of great distress.

In Luke 21:17,  Jesus warns  His followers,  “You will be hated  by all  on account  of My name.”     It seems like we are seeing some  of that  in the news already.     School Christmas programs  are no longer allowed  to sing  “religious”  Christmas songs.     Art work desecrates  the birth  and crucifixion  of Christ.     Gay rights activists make scenes  in church services.     In a number  of foreign countries,  Christians are imprisoned  or killed.     Many web sites  have been created just  for the purpose  of blaspheming Christ.     And the list goes on…….

It’s time  to listen up.     Where do we stand  in this lineup?     Are we trying  to straddle the fence — living as if  we don’t know Christ,  but claiming  to be Christian?     Are we hiding  in the bushes,  pretending that none  of Jesus’  words  are coming true?

We need  to ask ourselves  where we want  to be  when Jesus comes.     Do we really think  we can suddenly  become a sincere Christian  at the very last second?

Just because God  has proven  that He keeps all  of His word,  it would be sensible  to obey  Jesus’ advice  in Luke 21:34-36,

Be careful never  to get your hearts burdened  with drunkenness  and its nausea  and with worries  about this life,  or that day  will take you  by surprise  like a trap.     It will surprise  all people  wherever they live  on the earth.     But always watch  and pray  to be  considered worthy  to escape all these things  that are going  to happen  and to stand  before the Son  of Man.

Because Jesus has also promised  to never leave us  or forsake us,  in all this  we can say,  “Hallelujah!     Lord,  Your love  and care  for us  is precious.     Your words will not pass away — and that’s final.     Let us hold  onto You  forever.”

Love,
Margaret
