Think Of The Homeless

There are over 30 million Americans who live on the streets of our nation. Can you consider giving something to a shelter near you? Your fellow human beings need socks because they walk everywhere. Food and shelter are great too, if they will take them. So please give.

How Can I Survive 2012 When The Earth Comes To An End?

December 21, 2012 is a date that has been predicted as the end of the world. The most widely known prophecy for this date is the Mayan calendar, which was constructed centuries ago, but mysteriously runs out on this precise date.

Scientists agree with this theory because on that day in the not so far off future, the earth and sun will line up with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, something that only happens about once every 25,000 years. This could cause world wide disaster as the world shifts suddenly, and the North and South poles end up on the equator, causing earthquakes, flooding, storms, and volcanic action never known before in the history of the world.

If this isn’t frightening enough, other prophetic informants have pointed to the end of the world being sometime in the year 2012. While the Bible does not make straight forward citation to the year 2012, it does depict various analogous events that many believe are happening right now as we watch. Jesus’ disciples directed some weighty questions to him about when the end of the age would be. Jesus answered with this:

"Take heed that no one deceives you. For many will come in My name, saying, 'I am the Christ,' and will deceive many. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows. Matthew 24:4-8

Is this time close at hand? Is time ticking away and if so, what can we do? Is it viable to survive 2012? The answer is ”Certainly”. The answer is God’s only Son. He is the only way for how to survive 2012.

More than 2000 years ago, the Heavenly Father sent His son, Jesus, to the world He created as a human to live with us, teach us, and experience life in the same ways we do. There was only one differentiation between Him and us. He never did anything wrong. We are all sinners deserving to be punished in hell

. . . . for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God
Romans 3:23

Since we are all wrong doers, we have to suffer the consequences of sin . . . eternal separation for our holy God. Death.

For the wages of sin is death
Romans 6:23

Sin leads to eternal separation from God. We all face physical death, which is a result of sin. But a worse death is spiritual death that divides us from God, and will last for all eternity. The Bible teaches that there is a place called the Lake of Fire where lost people will be tormented endlessly. It is the place where people who are separated from God because they were not born again will stay.

but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Romans 6:23

When Jesus died on the cross He paid sin's penalty. He paid the price for all sin and when He took all the sins of the world on Himself on the cross. He bought us out of slavery to sin and death! The only condition is that we believe in Him and what He has done for us, understanding that we are now bonded with Him, and that He is our life. He did all this because He loved us and gave Himself for us! For

. . . whoever calls on the name of the LORD shall be saved.
Romans 10:13

. . . if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
Romans 10:9-10

The decision is now yours. If you accept Jesus Christ as your individual savior and get absolution for your sins, you will survive the trials that will come.

If you haven’t, I urge you to do so at this moment, even as you read this you can accept Jesus into your heart. Simply pray with me, “Lord Jesus. Thank you for loving me so much that you died in my place. I realize that I am a sinner, and I desire your forgiveness. Please come into my heart and rescue me from death. Amen!”

If you made this appeal to God, congratulations! You are now existing eternally. You will by no means die! Yes, your body will die, but you will live eternally. Even though God will destroy the world around us, you will not be destroyed. That is God’s promise.

A word of caution: just because you are saved from death doesn’t mean that life will be carefree. In fact, as the day of doomsday approaches, it just might get more difficult as the devil gains more power. We have to stand together and support each other in this difficult time. If you do not already attend a a fellowship that teaches God’s Word, find one! Dive into God’s word, and learn as much as you can. Pray daily. Constantly search out God’s purpose for your life, and He will see you through. Remember, 2012 is not the finish. It is a new start!

As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name!
John 1:12
