Well, are you all ready for the planet named Nibiru to collide with the earth this Saturday? A self-proclaimed numerologist David Meade says it is so. Well, if you are so inclined to believe that our doomsday is this Saturday, September 23rd. I surely hope you are ready! Truthfully, if indeed this Saturday is truly the end of the world as we know it I would say that it is time to make a choice. Jesus or not Jesus? Do you believe in heaven and hell? Do you realize that there is one path to heaven? One path and one path only! Buddha won’t cut it, Allah won’t be enough, your favorite Shaman is not the answer. Jesus is the only answer. “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6. If heaven is where you hope to spend eternity then you have to choose to go there. You have to make a decision that you alone are not good enough to make it into heaven. You are not perfect and you need a savior. There was a great separation between God and man and Jesus gave His life so that you and I would not have to spend eternity without him. The choice is yours! I hope you will choose Jesus. I hope you choose Jesus whether Saturday is doomsday or not. He is worthy of the choice and He is the only answer to the darkness in every man’s heart.
Now concerning Saturday. If it is the last day I spend on earth I will be ready! If tomorrow is really the day before doomsday here is my plan. I have one client in the morning, then I must drive out to Collierville, Tennessee to return a cleaning product to a client that I accidentally put in my cleaning caddy, run by the tax collector’s office to make an address change and then I am done with errands. Then I suppose I will finish my chores around the house, have all my clothes washed and put away. take a quick shower because I surely don’t want to meet Jesus smelling bad. Then I think Mike and I will go out to eat dinner and have all the bad things to eat that I normally stay away from. I may have pasta, lots of carbs, and a least two desserts. Oh yeah and have a Pyro’s Pyroccino to top the night off! Hey, since it is my last day on the planet I plan on going out in style! Oh yeah I hope I can drink coffee in heaven too.
Do I have a contingency plan? Yes, I do! If I am still here on Sunday morning then I will keep doing what I have been doing for most of my days since 1970. I will rise early in the morning ready for another day loving Jesus. I will live my life worthy of being a Christian. I will do the best job I can for my clients, being a wife, mom, friend and Christian. I will live here on this earth but look toward heaven with expectation. Yes, Jesus did say He was coming back to earth one day but contrary to the false teachings of those who say they know when we will not know that day. The Bible says “Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear. However, no one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” Matthew 24:35-36.
So, you can go to sleep Friday night expecting earth’s last day is Saturday but before you do take inventory of your life. Make sure your heart belongs to Jesus. I have no doubt that when I go to sleep Friday night my destination is heaven. I hope you do to! And for all those who wake up terribly disappointed if that doomsday did not come you should be thankful that you have one more day to turn you heart towards heaven. What Jesus really wants is a love relationship with you not a fear relationship. If a threat of doomsday causes someone to consider Jesus that is great but He wants us to come because we are truly wanting a heart change and we desire to live our lives as a living testimony of God’s amazing grace.
I tell you one thing I do want to see on Sunday morning if we are still here, and I expect we will, is a news conference from David Meade saying…….oops I was wrong! It is the least he could do. Let the false prophet be exposed and all those who follow him realize when someone says they know the day and hour of earth’s final day they are WRONG! But there will be signs in the heavens and Jesus will break through the eastern sky. “It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.” I Corinthians 15:52. Yes, what a glorious day His return will be! We wait in hope for our heavenly home. Come Lord Jesus come!
