“Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of Man cometh.” Matthew 25:13
None of us know the time of our death. Neither does anyone know the time of the Lord’s second coming.
Just as one must be prepared for dying we need to be prepared for the coming of the Lord. One is closely associated with the other.
Please understand. It has been said that there are only two things which are certain in the life; and that is death and taxes. We all will die in this physical body. The heart will beat its final beat; and we will breathe our final breath. Are you ready?
The greatest preparation we can make for death is to call on the name of Jesus when we realize that we are lost, condemned, dying law breakers, headed to eternal judgment. Calling on Jesus who bled and died on the cross as the ultimate payment for our sin, and was buried carrying away all our sin, our shame, our guilt and condemnation, and then He rose from the grave justifying forever those who will come to Him. See Matthew 26 through 28.
When you call on His name you are then prepared for death and for the coming of the Lord.
