The Big Picture For These Last Times
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God's power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time. 1 Peter 1:3-5
He saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to his own mercy, by the renewal of the Holy Spirit. He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we should be a kind of first fruits of his creatures. Since you have been born again, not of perishable seed but of imperishable, through the living and abiding word of God - prepare your minds for action, and being sober-minded, set your hope fully on the grace that will be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ for He is coming soon to take us to be with Him.
Open the door of your heart for the night is fading. There is a seven year tribulation coming. It will be the worst time in the history of mankind. Here is the good news however - you can avoid it if you accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and repent of your sin. All of us have sinned and fall short of the glory of God and the bible tells us that the wages of our sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life.
"If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation." Romans 10: 9-10
