The end of ALL THINGS….

But the end of ALL THINGS is at hand; therefore be SERIOUS and WATCHFUL in your PRAYERS.  1 Peter 4:7

The end of ALL THINGS …

It sounds so ominous. It sounds like something we should pay attention to. Are you SERIOUS and WATCHFUL in your PRAYERS? This is something that I am learning.  Why? Because we have been instructed to do so and because it is important as we see the great need all around us. Souls need to be saved. Our hearts need encouragement and without SERIOUS PRAYER, these things may not happen.

All around us crazy things are happening. Governments seem to be more and more corrupt. Public schools have an agenda that is against the family. Fathers are leaving their children and mothers are overwhelmed and looking for some escape. Then there is the infighting, war, illegal activity, violent outbursts, unreasonable expectations and illogical thinking and selfishness seems to be the modus operand-a ; all of these are symptomatic of the sin that rules in the hearts of mankind. And it is increasing exponentially! Could it be that the END is that near? It seems to me that there is a satanic movement to destroy mankind and the plans of God. Satan has always had this agenda and we are instructed to PRAY today because the END is nearer than we realize!

What am I saying? Get SERIOUS Christian! STOP meandering around truth. STOP walking in the pathway of the unjust and start living SERIOUSLY for the Lord. Be the LIGHT OF GOD in the darkness of a sinful world.

1 Pet 4:8
And above ALL THINGS have fervent LOVE for one another, for “LOVE will cover a multitude of sins.”

According to Peter, the END is near, get SERIOUS and PRAY. Then ABOVE ALL THINGS – LOVE one another.

Be SERIOUS in PRAYER, be FERVENT in LOVE. These are two extremely important things we are told to do by GOD Himself through Peter’s words. Are you listening?

Yet, that is not all. As 1 Peter 4:11 says, speak as an oracle of GOD,
MINISTER in the ability of God’s supply. Why? Because in ALL THINGS GOD should be GLORIFIED.  Today, tomorrow and in the end.

1 Peter 4:11 “If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of GOD. If anyone MINISTERS, let him do it as with the ability which GOD supplies, that in ALL THINGS GOD may be GLORIFIED through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the GLORY and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.

PRAYER is a deterrent to sin Matthew 26:41
LOVE is a characteristic of GOD, the fruit of the Spirit. Galatians 5:22
MINISTER is to be an attendant, to serve another, to wait upon another

Don’t think you should leave ministering to some other person with a title. GOD calls us all to be MINISTERS!

There is a day coming when MINISTERING will be rewarded.

Matthew 25:40
And the King will answer and say to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’

We have today to be obedient.  You have today not knowing what tomorrow brings. Use today for the GLORY OF GOD.

Matthew 26:41
WATCH AND PRAY, lest you enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”

Galatians 5:22
But the fruit of the Spirit is LOVE, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

Mark 13:33
Take heed, WATCH AND PRAY for you do not know when the time is.
