Text: Luke 12: 47. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 
48. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

 

An instruction from the word of God tells us, “Watch for you know neither the day nor the hour the son of man shall come”. Matthew 25:13.
We are very conscious of our activities on earth, taking the required time and process for each activity.
We prepare for our jobs, our studies, and all our activities in life.
In fact, we have come up with a non-negotiable philosophy that tells us that a failure to prepare, is a sure way of preparing to fail.
But it baffles me that in as much as we take all the necessary time required to prepare for our earthly activities, we never give time or live consciously with full awareness on the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

 

We live carelessly, getting involved in so many ungodly activities, forgetting that Jesus is coming soon.
There’s no luck to any activity in life.
When preparation meets opportunity, success is undeniable.
The same way it Is, when our preparation and readiness meets the Lord, making Heaven is undeniable.
God in His word has laid down principles on how we can prepare and await His coming.
In His word, the Lord said, repent and turn from your evil ways and you shall be saved. Isaiah 55:7, James 4:8-10, Acts 3:19.

 

The coming of the Lord is not a myth.
Many including myself have seen the vision of His coming.
We must understand that the path of life and death are parallel to each other, it’s an unpredictable journey.
You don’t postpone your day of salvation until tomorrow for tomorrow might be too late.
Today, now, as you read these words, is the appointed time for your salvation.
Only those whose lamps are burning will see the Lord.

 

Jesus told of a marriage feast with 5 wise and foolish virgin, in Matthew 25:1-13.
From this story we clearly see that these maidens were really virgins, they had waited for their master faithfully.
The time of the master’s arrival was unknown to them, so 5 had an extra oil and it was counted to them as wisdom but the other 5 thought another day would still be open for their salvation and they had no extra oil.
We must be like the 5 wise virgins.
Is your lamp still on fire?
Take extra oil by constantly renewing your faith through God’s word and promises.
Beloved, do not copy the world and her system.
Jesus Christ is coming real soon, it is my duty to tell the world.

 

Remember,
Luke 12: 47. And that servant, which knew his lord’s will, and prepared not himself, neither did according to his will, shall be beaten with many stripes. 
48. But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

 

Prayer of repentance.
Jesus, I have heard your word.
Forgive me my sins as I repent today and turn a new life.
I confess you as Lord and Savior of my life.
Thank you for saving me in Jesus Christ name. 

 

Please, If you have made this prayer for the first time, I encourage you, to daily and constantly feed on God’s word, to grow your faith and understand more about the savior.
You can also fellowship in the local church nearest to you, ask questions and enjoy the benefits of your salvation.
See what it means to be saved and free.

 

Shalom!
