While I was growing up my Mother would always say expect the unexpected, with which my young unlearned mind would reply that’s impossible because if something is unexpected there’s no way to prepare for it. Now years later I understand what it means to prepare, especially by the guidance of the Holy Spirit we are shown what is important and vital for survival of soul (flesh) and Spirit (eternal). (John 16:13-16). Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.A little while, and ye shall not see me: and again, a little while, and ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
As Christians we know we are in a temporal place and one day will inhabit eternity with God Almighty and his Son our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. We are an example to a world set on the worlds gain, but one day just as the wise and foolish virgins learned that they should have prepared for when the bridegroom came only those ready entered for the marriage supper of the Lamb. (Matthew 25:1-13).
May we live a life worthy to which we are called as a servant of Christ and not only prepare ourselves, but others who need to hear the message of the gospel!!. (Revelation 22:10-14). And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand. He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
