Be Ready for Jesus to Return

On the one hand we have a false teacher making claims about the world ending on September 23rd....but on the other hand we have a solid evangelist, Franklin Graham, telling all his followers that they should "Be ready" for Jesus to return.

With natural disasters raging across America, Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, is warning Christians to “be ready” for Jesus’ return, as the CEO of Samaritan’s Purse shared a plethora of Bible verses about the biblical end times.

“Wildfires raging on the West Coast. Violent hurricanes, one after the other, ravaging everything in their paths, with one of the worst — Irma — bearing down on Florida,” Graham wrote in a recent Facebook post. “A magnitude 8.1 earthquake shook the southern parts of Mexico this week, and we even recently experienced a rare solar eclipse.”

He then appealed to various Bible verses to detail scripture that references a number of signs humanity will experience before the end times kicks into high gear. Graham started with Luke 21:25, which reads, “There will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves.”

The evangelist also referenced Matthew 24:7, which proclaims, “For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and there will be famines and earthquakes in various places.”

While Graham said that all of these verses detail “some of the Biblical signs before Christ’s return,” he was careful to also mention another important biblical tidbit: that no one knows the day or hour. Still, he said that recent events serve as an essential reminder.

“It is a reminder to all of us to be ready — to repent and confess our sins, and ask for God’s forgiveness. In the meantime, we can find comfort, peace, and hope in Him,” Graham continued. “As we pray for all those affected by the current disasters, we should also remember God’s promise to us in John 16:33, ‘I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.'”


Now notice what it says at the end of the article;

As Faithwire previously reported, Bible prophecy has been getting a slew of attention in recent weeks, with the Great American Solar Eclipse, a Sept. 23 prediction and natural disasters sparking plenty of discussion and debate about topics like the rapture, the second coming and Earth’s future. Read more about that here.

Should all true followers of Jesus Christ be excited for Him to return??


But what about someone who claims to love Christ but is terrified to meet him?

That would appear to be a problem.

I'm going to suggest to anyone who says that....they should spend more time in the Bible and to ask Jesus in their prayers to reveal to them WHY they are scared.

Do they love this earth and the things in it MORE than they love Christ's appearing?

Luke 8:14
The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature.
