He's coming back...Where is your eternal destination?



Have you ever had a crazy dream? One that just doesn't make sense? One where you are suddenly transported from one place to another? One where things are so vivid that when you awake you are still there? One so real that you sense that maybe God is speaking to you?

Last night as I slept I did have a dream. Not one of those normal crazy dreams. This one was very real and was very vivid even when I awoke. This dream made sense. This dream left me asking God many questions.

My family and I were looking outside through a set of double glass doors. We were watching the sky as the clouds looked very odd. Colors very vivid. Suddenly there in the sky a bright light and a man in the clouds. I remember saying "'ve come back!" The feeling of peace I had was nothing like I have ever known. As I stood there waiting to be caught up with him, these thoughts flooded my mind...Do I get to go? Have I done all that I should do? Did I truly surrender my life to Him? Did my life reflect Jesus?

My one fear is I or those I know and love will be left behind! Fearing an eternal life of pain and suffering...Hell! For the Christian...Earth is as bad as it will ever get. For the Non Christian...Earth is as good as it will ever get!  Which one do you choose? If the Christian is wrong....then they'll never know! If the non-Christian is wrong...then they'll never know the peace of eternal life! With all that is going on in the world today...our eternity should be the number one thing on our minds. Are you watching ? Are you waiting? Are you ready? Which do you choose? Life is can end in an instant! Please don't be left behind ! If you're not sure...ask God to show you. He is always faithful!

As I awoke this morning my question to my Lord....You're coming back soon aren't you?

Matthew 24:29-42 (New King James Version)

The Coming of the Son of Man
29 “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30 Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
The Parable of the Fig Tree
  32 “Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So you also, when you see all these things, know that it[a] is near—at the doors! 34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all these things take place. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
No One Knows the Day or Hour

36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven,[b] but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour[c] your Lord is coming.
