What if that twinkling were to happen tonight?

As a born again believer I look forward to going home to be with my saviour, sometimes though it's hard to imagine. Here lately though the LORD has really kept this thought close to my heart.

Mat 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.

Well sure I don't know the day or the hour but if I were a betting man I'd put my money on tonight. I don't know anything special, haven't read anything that tells me that it's tonight, it's just that it seems so immanent that it won't wait for day break. LORD GOD that I would have lived today as though that was the case.

I work along side of the epitome of the liberal progressive movement. I work at a drug and alcohol rehab center. Their philosophy is centered around humanism and relativism, we are even told not to judge their "addiction" as being bad because that is relative.... The only reason I still work there is because of the wonderful opportunities to witness. I've noticed something in even the most conservative of my coworkers, they are turning farther and farther from the things of God. Sure most of them are lost and already separated from our LORD but their hearts are hardening. They have "hope" in this world, and at this particular time when the world seems to be spiraling more and more out of control. So what if? What if that twinkling of the eye were to happen right now? What have I done today to point others to Christ, what has my life been a picture of today, and what questions will my life and what I leave behind answer.

Rev 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

i would say that it is not centered around humanism but is rooted and founded ON humanism. Relativism is the humanist way to navigate the gray areas of life. the farther we lean to "us" the bigger the gray area.

My Mr. Visionary says every day that you can not convince him that the Lord will not come today.

Look expectantly for the Lords return What a glad day that will be.

In HIS Keeping,

(tell Jamie I miss her, How is she doing?)

Aye, there have been many days, lately, that I expect to hear trumpets. My wife and I look at each other, sometimes, and ask why the Lord tarries. Then there are other times when, frankly, I feel like I don't want to give up, that I'm not ready to leave. My children are so young, etc...

Alas, we do yern for Him, in the end.
