The Bible says, “The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God” (Isaiah 40:3). Most are not what they appear to be. When Christ comes back their masks will be removed, and everything will be revealed. Are you truly ready for that day? Remember, God looks at your heart, your mind, and your soul. He looks at your memories and your every thought that you ever had. He looks at how you spend your days chasing after one opinion and then another. He is fully aware of how much time you have spent on social media, YouTube, entertainment, and your relentless searches on the internet. He knows everything about you as you stand before the King of Glory waiting to be judged for everything that you have done in the body (see II Corinthians 5:10). Now, tell me again that you are ready for His glorious coming in the clouds. The Bible says, “And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 3:2). So, let’s talk about getting ready for the coming of Christ who will rapture up the pure Body of Christ, to be caught up to meet Him coming in the clouds. This is a topic we don’t want to quickly pass over. We need to take our time to ensure that we will be ready when Christ returns.
The first thing we need to do is throw away that Sunday go-to-meeting mask with those beautiful smiles etched in self-esteem. The second thing we need to do is stop chasing everyone’s opinion and seek an audience with the resurrected Christ. Your eternal life depends on it before you decide to cast this article aside. Satan has done a great job of sowing confusion among God’s children and the rest of the world. Social media gives the entire world a platform to express their unqualified opinions on the world stage. This is the worst evil to have ever descended upon the planet. For the so-called believers, it has given them a mixed bag of theology and for the rest, it has allowed the enemy to divide the entire world into warring camps ready to annihilate one another. Social media including YouTube is like a drug that keeps the entire population hooked as an addict. Some will leave, but they almost always come back to fill up the large hole left in their time, not knowing what to do with themselves. Social media is like a double-edged sword where it gives the contributor pride that his opinion must be correct when it’s validated by his number of likes and followers, then it gives the rest a mixed bag of theology by trying to assimilate everyone’s contradicting opinions.
Satan’s endgame is working! You can hear him laughing now! Very few will be ready for the Second Coming of Christ because they have wasted all their time searching for some elusive truth and totally missing the mark. So, we must find something else to fill the time to help us get ready for eternity. Stop chasing after everyone’s opinion and seek an audience with the risen Christ who will speak directly to you through the indwelling Spirit and be validated by His all-sufficient truth in the Holy Bible. When you follow this method used by the saints of old, long before social media, you will soon discover that the Bible is not just a history book but a book that shows you how to grow up spiritually in Christ. This Spiritual growth is not something that can be accomplished in a few short Sunday School lessons, it will take your entire life. Let’s be very clear on that, it will take your entire life as you press on to the goal of your upward calling in Christ Jesus (see Philippians 3:14). The resurrected Christ will not teach you how to play church, but He will teach you how to be the Church.
Some of you may need to start with salvation where you will offer your entire life to Christ believing that He alone can accomplish what He has promised to do in your life, believing that Christ will make you into a new creation where old things will truly pass away (see II Corinthians 5:17). You may need to begin again at the Cross repenting of all of your sins and believing that Christ’s shed blood on the Cross will wash away your sins and forgive them for all eternity. Your faith will only open the door, now you must go through it by applying all of God’s truth to your life, which will help you to overcome the old sin nature and put off the old life. Now comes the exciting part, you learn from God’s Word how to put on the new life in Christ, which helps you to put off the old life. Dear children, remember you are still standing at the door until you allow Christ to grow you from one degree of glory to another. We do this by keeping in step with the Spirit. Yes, this will be a lifelong journey but if you are not on the journey, then Christ at His second coming will know. Christ sets the rate of our growth we cannot lag behind, nor can we run ahead, but we can keep in step with the Spirit, one step at a time (see Galatians 5:16-26). I will tell you, in the beginning, some of these steps are most difficult where they will seem almost impossible, but they are not. We don’t have an option to give up we must continue realizing the great joy and peace that comes with every accomplishment.
If you are ready, then let us proceed. I will suggest that you get a little journal to record in it every time you learn something new that must be put out of your life, then also record in your journal every time that you learn something new that must be put into your life. Start by reading the Gospel of John, then day by day read through the New Testament, each time reading it slowly and prayerfully until you get warming in your heart from the indwelling Spirit. When you get this warming or convicting, then stop, record it, and apply it to your life. Ask Jesus to help you, He is listening. Every time you are successful in putting something evil out of your life and replacing it with the good, then you will be growing one step at a time. It is a lifelong journey that must be taken if you want to be ready when Christ returns for His Bride, His Holy Church. Make no mistake this journey will take all of your time. You will discover that social media will be of no help for all it will do is pull you further and further away from your goal. Satan is fully aware of this and will try everything to keep you involved by playing games to getting tons of likes on totally useless posts, or posts that only build your pride. You can hear Satan rejoicing.
Finally, don’t be fooled. We as a people have passed the point of changing the West, and America in particular, from within the system. The godless have had over 60 years to decimate our western world. Wake up, everything has changed. To change a few laws will not change their behavior or their godless hearts. Posting out-of-context feel-good Scripture on social media will not work. Electing a new political leader who promises to fulfill a godly agenda will not work. Antichrist is coming. There is only one thing we can do. The Bible says, “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities” (Revelation 18:4-5). We must come out bringing our children and grandchildren with us, no longer allowing Satan to teach them through their public school system. We must teach them how to grow up spiritually in Christ. We must teach them to shun all their social media platforms that will be opening another door to an alternate reality in the Metaverse, see my newest book, “God’s Loving Pursuit.” We must teach them to turn their backs on all the world’s sins, which have reached up to heaven. We must come out from among them and prepare for the coming of Christ. Please prepare now, the Tribulation will only get worse, and you will not stand unless you grow up in Christ every day.
