If you're reading this then you are probably aware that the world isn't ending today. Did you even think it would? Some did. And my heart breaks for them.
I know there has been a lot of joking and laughing about this whole mess. But I have to wonder... should there be? Especially by those who call themselves christians?
You see.... these people bought into a lie. Wholeheartedly. They allowed themselves to be deceived. To me, that is a sad thing.
Can you imagine what these people are thinking today? What choices they might have made while thinking today would be their last? Not to mention all they will have to endure at the hands of those who knew they held this belief... and they were wrong. I would be devastated. I'm sure many of them are as well.
Would you pray for Harold Camping and all of his followers today? They need our prayers now more than ever. They need Jesus. He can restore them. Please pray that they run to the arms of our loving Savior and receive the forgiveness He has to offer. That they would be motivated to seek His face and read His Word... and know it. I pray that this event (or lack of it) today will open their eyes and they will know the truth.
"If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
It is so important that we keep our eyes on Jesus... and Him alone. When we begin to trust in man, we put ourselves at risk. We put our eternity at risk.
Are all men going to lead you astray? Certainly not. But how will you ever know if you aren't seeking God for yourself.... reading His Word, PRAYING and following Him.
And while we're at it... let's pray for one another that we will not be deceived. Lies are coming at us faster than we can keep track. Let''s stay in God's Word, pray for one another, and encourage others to do the same.
Thanks for reading and God bless!
