One of the questions Believers ask often is, Can I play a role in God’s End Times plan?
We can learn a lot from the words of Jesus Himself: “We must do the work of the One who sent Me, so long as it is day! Night is coming when no one can work. While I am in the world, I am the light of the world” (John 9:4-5, TLV).
What Jesus is saying here is that we’re living in a very intense period of history. The forces of evil are turning against God’s people in a dramatic fashion. While we may be tempted to just say everything is fine, we need to look around us and understand what’s happening – here in the West, and certainly in Israel.
The end will come suddenly. God’s Word assures us of that. But if we’re complacent, we won’t be ready. And worse, we won’t fulfill the destiny He has prepared for us.
If these truly are the Last Days – and I’m convinced they are – we’re approaching the crescendo of history. We need to be prepared, obedient and active witnesses to the Good News. Personally, I don’t want to be on the sidelines, so I will continue to do all I can to ensure that as many of God’s chosen people as possible hear this message.
But let’s never forget: The end is a good story. Because we will prevail. The victory has already been won. The Bible warns us to understand and pay attention to the signs of the times, because we who endure to the end will be saved!
