No One Knows When.....But God.

Real Photo Not Edited. This Picture was taken just after the Joplin tornado.
     Linda speed walked as fast as she could down the hall of her church to Sunday school.  She felt tempted to run, but she didn't.  She was late, again!  Linda stepped into the room.  Mr. Davis, the teacher, gave her a look that looked like he was saying "your late again." Her best friend, Elizabeth, was in the middle of answering a question.  "...Jesus is coming soon, so we need to be ready," Elizabeth said.  Linda took her seat and caught on to the subject at hand.  Another girl raised her hand. 
     "Yes Lilly?"
     "Yeah... and only people who believe in him will be able to go, and maybe some people might be able to be saved right then and there!" Lilly said.
     "Will God come on a sunny or cloudy day?" Linda said.
     "Very good question, but I can't answer that. The bible says, "No one knows the day or the hour," and I believe, that applies to everyone. The bible also says that, "He will come riding with the clouds of heaven." But I don't know if that means literal clouds," Mr. Davis said.
     "I once heard that, all the Christians that who have died will rise up from their graves and, together with them, we who are still alive and remain on earth will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him in heaven,"* Linda said.
     The next day, Linda thought to herself.  "The clouds look really weird today...its kind of scary. I wonder if Jesus will come today? I think I'd better find out more about how to become a  better Christian, so I can go to heaven when He comes."
    How About You?  Will you be ready if Jesus comes today?  Have you asked him to forgive you of your sins and asked him to be your Lord and Savior?  If not click here.

    So glad to see you participate in Faithful Fridays. Love your mom!

    This is true....I know I think about it many times when I see the sky and although no man knows the hour, I can't help but wonder when..... We do have to be ready!

    Wise words from a lovely young lady! :)
