“10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2…”

Then suddenly, after all the warnings, a day will dawn that will start like any other day, but before that day is over, you will be face to face with God. Are you ready for that day? For, in one day, in one hour, God’s judgment will fall. [Revelation 18:8, 10, 17, 19].

For many people this will be the saddest day ever because they did not prepare themselves for this day. They did not repent, were not baptized, and did not accept Jesus as their personal savior. They will be likened to the “Five Foolish Virgins” of [Matthew 25:1-10] that failed to prepare their lamps before the Bridegroom came and missed out on the wedding feast. What Tragedy! The smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever. And they have no rest day nor night. [Revelation 14:11].

Listen, as God through Pilate gave Israel one last chance before consigning the nation to perpetual judgment. [John 19:8-16] He is giving you one last chance to repent.  The parable’s lesson in [Luke chapter 13] is that mercy and grace are available to all who will come to Christ IN TIME. Because eventually time runs out. [Hebrews 9:27]. This message is an urgent call for you to use the second chance wisely.

Understand that it is only the forbearance of God that stands between you and eternal damnation. You are living on borrowed time. Opportunity to repent does not last forever. For He said to the vineyard-keeper, “Behold, for three years I have come looking for fruit on this fig tree without finding any. Cut it down! [Luke 13:7].

I want you to know that in life there are windows of opportunity. Once those windows close, opportunities are gone.  God’s patience won’t last forever.  The window is closing. The opportunity is passing. Seek the Lord while He may be found. Call on Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, the unrighteous man his thought, let him return to the Lord and He will have compassion on him, and to our God, for He will abundantly pardon.” [Isaiah 55:6-7]. 

Consider today with some urgency your eternal life. Tomorrow is not promised. Learn the lesson of the Ten Virgins [Matthew 25:1]. The Foolish were not in the bridal procession and they hadn’t been in the closed-door celebration. Why will you die? Repent and live! Give, your life to Jesus NOW! Don’t delay! For I declares says the Sovereign Lord, I take no pleasure in the death of anyone. [Ezekiel 18:30]. 

I tell you; your whole life is about to change. Get under the Almighty wings for cover. For NOW, is the Appointed Time. NOW is the Day of Salvation! [2 Corinthians 6:2]. Do not wait! Do not postpone the matter any longer! “Seek ye the Lord while He may be found; call ye upon Him while He is near” [Isaiah 55:6].

Repent and Live! The clock is ticking down from God’s Two-Minute Warning and the window to change is closing. Don’t be another Belshazzar who waited until it was too late! Only if he’d repented, God probably would have spared his life. God spared the King of Nineveh, which had 40 days till destruction; God spared King Manasseh who had done the most terrible things of anyone in the Old Testament! But Belshazzar went on in arrogance with his charade and died that night. [Daniel 5:1-30]. Don’t you do it! Repent and live! For the judgment of God is serious business. 

We’ve Been Warned! – 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2…!
