Theme:Shun The World
Text:2 Timothy 4:1-2a
I solemnly urge you in the presence of God and Christ Jesus, who will someday judge the living and the dead when He appears to set up his Kingdom.Preach the word of God.Be prepared,…
Paul charges us before God and Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing in His kingdom. He had the assurance that he fought the good fight, he finished the course, he kept the faith, and God will award him the crown of righteousness at His judgement seat!
God will give the crown of righteousness to all those who love His appearing, those who are not discouraged or backslide but remain faithful to the end! We should not allow the things in this world to weigh us down, neither should we be set, settled, and occupied with the things of the present age.
We need to be filled with the heavenly breath by breathing in the breathed out word of God (2 Tim. 3:16 ).
Remember Lot’s wife: one last look at the things of this world means that she loved the things of this evil world which God was going to judge and destroy!
If we love the world today, the Lord will leave us here to pass through the great tribulation that we may be put to shame until we become mature and are raptured(second rapture,Rev.15:1-6)
Let us pray to escape the great tribulation(Matthew 24:21)Jesus spoke about, it will be terrible for those who are left behind.
“DON’T BE LEFT BEHIND”
