As per usual, I was rummaging through a gaggle of worldwide news sites looking for any & all things related to Bible prophecy … and as per usual of late, there is so much that I just have to stop for a moment .. just take a break as it becomes almost overwhelming at times. .. Yesterday, during this one particular break, I decided to briefly scan Facebook just to see what folks were up to. .. As I scrolled down through a number of posts, I happened to stumble upon a picture of a young man who had just experienced what appeared to be a massive surgical procedure on his brain. .. Turns out that he is suffering from brain cancer. .. When looking closely at his face, one could see that one eye was bruised very badly, but the other was wide open, staring straight ahead. .. I paused for a moment to look into this wide-open eye, & it seemed that there was a myriad of mixed feelings coming from it. .. Certainly the reality of how fragile life is had to be one of them. ..

The lady that posted this photo obviously wanted many of us to see just how dire this young man’s condition is, and asked for prayer for him. .. It immediately became apparent that this is what I needed to do. .. So I went out on my back patio & prayed for this young man. .. After a bit, I began to realize that even though his condition appeared to make it look like he was much closer to his day of reckoning than the rest of us, was that really the case? .. So many people across this planet of ours are suffering all sorts of life-threatening situations every moment! .. war, crazy weather, persecution, execution .. the list goes on …..

When I reflected a bit on this, the look in this young man’s eye and all the other glimpses of a world coming apart at the seams, it made me realize that none of us know exactly when ‘our moment’ will be upon us. .. It can all change so quickly! …

So for now, I feel that God wants me to share with each of you some thoughts on all of this .. and then a call to salvation which is the ultimate path to the only real peace of mind in all of this madness. .. I pray that each of us would stop & take just a moment to read, & then reflect on what I am about to share with you .. a thought that says just how close we all really are …………

“One heartbeat .. that’s it! .. that’s all! .. You are only one heartbeat away from eternity …

… Everything you have .. your life, your breath .. this moment .. it’s all borrowed …

… It’s all a gift .. and at any moment, it all ends with a heartbeat .. and there is NO MORE TIME …

… One heartbeat .. and the chance to be saved is gone .. there is no more
choosing …

… It is all sealed for eternal life, or eternal death …

… The only thing we can be sure of is that it will come .. and the only time we can be sure of is now

…… Right Now! ……

… Now is all you and I have .. now is the time of salvation …

————————————————-

Remember this .. There is no sin so deep that His love isn’t deeper .. no life so hopeless .. no soul so far away .. and no darkness so deep that is love isn’t greater still ….

God is salvation .. God is deliverance .. protection .. rescue .. freedom .. refuge .. and safety. ..

It all begins with the receiving .. with the opening of one’s heart .. with the turning away from darkness and stepping into the light .. with the giving of one’s self .. the committing of one’s life .. a vow of love .. a prayer .. a decision .. a total and unconditional YES! .. and the time is NOW! ……

I will be continually praying for this young man .. his name is Larry .. as well as all of you as we move ever closer to our ‘moment in time’ .. and I will be praying for each & every one of you, and our Great God knows exactly who you are! … Hallelujah! …

Until next time,

Red
