From the Pastor’s Desk…

December 10, 2018

Were you ever caught unprepared for something?  That is a terrible feeling. Personally, I would rather be an hour early for an appointment than be one minute late.  I’ve learned the hard way that it always pays huge dividends to be prepared.

Jesus told us that as it was in Noah’s day, so shall it be prior to His return (Matthew 24:7).

Friends, we are living in those days now. The Lord Jesus will return for His church soon.  How do we become prepared for Jesus’ return?   “For if when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have  now received the atonement (Romans 5:10,11).

Noah’s ark is a type or symbol of the church.  Are you really prepared for Jesus’ return?  Are you encouraging others to be prepared?  Now is the time to prepare.  Jesus is coming again.
