The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly. Zepheniah.1:14 KJA
We live in the final moments of the world. These are the days referred to the the scriptures as the “The last days.” The day of the LORD is at hand. Sadly, there are those who do not believe that the world will come to an end.
Everything in the world today however points to the fact that the world is an expiring date. The global warming, natural disasters, the wars and outbreak of incurable diseases all point to the fact that one day the world will be totally destroyed. These are facts.
Again, all the prophecies Jesus gave about His second advent have all been fulfilled. Two thousand years back, Jesus predicted that “…nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places” (Mat 24:7). These, He said, are signs of the times. In order words, all these points to the fact that the day of the LORD is at hand.
It’s going to be a terrible day. Zepheniah said in his prophecy that “That day is a day of wrath, a day of trouble and distress, a day of wasteness and desolation, a day of darkness and gloominess, a day of clouds and thick darkness” (Zep 1:15). No man shall be able to stand the day of the LORD unless he is saved from God’s wrath. And to be saved from God’s wrath, one has to be born again. This is why we must preach the gospel, and warn men about this dreadful day.
Jesus said “And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come” Mat 24:14. This means we have an assignment in these last days to preach the gospel in every corner of the world. There’s no time when the preaching of the gospel has become so important to be preached than the days in which we live.
Men are on their way to destruction. Some of them are your relatives, family, friends and loved ones. This is why it’s an urgent need to preach the gospel. Today, God is challenging you to be the roadblock to hell. Reach out in boldness and preach the gospel today. A soul is counting on your obedience to be saved. So be bold and preach the gospel. The day of the LORD is at hand.
Prayer: Father I thank you for enlightening me through your word about the urgency of the hour. I receive the boldness to reach out with the gospel of Jesus to many today. Ignite in me the boldness to reach my world with the gospel in Jesus’ name. I thank you Lord.
