Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.
43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what
watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have
suffered his house to be broken up.
44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the
Son of man cometh.
What an admonition and reminder, to the church, the called out ones. In
this same passage Jesus makes it clear, that in the time before this age
comes to an end, that it will be difficult for even the solid believers.
For their sake the days will be shortened, so they can make it from day
to day. If the very elect, those on solid foundation and rooted in the
word, producing fruit fit for the kingdom; if for them they will
scarcely make it in, it causes us all to make sure where we stand. There
is no room for "mights" and "maybes". The bible cautions believers and
non believers alike to save ourselves from this generation. God's word
warns us that if this salvation is even neglected, how shall we escape
from the judgement? It didn't say if we do not accept salvation, but if
we neglect it. So after we believe, after baptism of water and the Holy
Ghost, the Holy Spirit of God, we must be careful to not become lazy and
careless with the gift of grace and salvation, extended to all nations,
through the precious blood of Jesus.
If you are unsure, today is the day of salvation! As Paul admonished the
saints, make your calling and election sure. Click on the link " The
