… as if it were the last day.

“Have you followed the prediction by Harold Camping that May 21 would usher in the rapture?”
“Camping believes that the rapture will occur on Saturday, May 21, and God will destroy the earth on Oct. 21. He made a similar prediction back in 1994, but now says his findings were premature.”
“Given the public controversy, many people are wondering how Christians should think about this.”

So… to live as if it were the last day.

On July 23, 2010, I awoke to a message… “Bless others as if it were the last day to shine.”  So here we are… ‘the predicted last day’.  There is so much left unsaid, but above all things that could ever possibly come from me to you, is…

I hope you see JESUS!

Bebo Norman – I Hope You See Jesus
Ocean Album Lyrics

Instead of fear
Instead of blinded eyes
Instead of shame
Instead of all my lies
Instead of an orphan without a name
I hope you see Jesus

Instead of anger
Instead of unbelief
Instead of weakness
In the heart of me
Instead of a wounded soul
I hope you see Jesus

Chorus
I hope you see Jesus
Standing in my place
Bearing all my shame
I hope you see Jesus

Instead of voices
In a faceless crowd
Instead of prophets crying out
From behind a shroud
Instead of fingers pointing out the blame
I hope you see Jesus

I hope you see love
I hope you see love
I hope you see love

Oh, my God when you look at us
A broken people who have turned from love
Instead of words we throw
And the wars we wage
I hope You forgive us

I hope you see Jesus
I hope you see Jesus
I hope you see Jesus
Standing in our place
Bearing all our shame
I hope you see Jesus

In Christ, always… jams4JESUS

Excerpts from related posts…

“The end is near… at the door.”
Posted on May 3, 2011 by jams4JESUS

You say it, but do you believe?

“For false christs and false prophets will rise and show great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect…  So you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near—at the doors!” … Matthew 24  “Behold, I [Jesus] stand at the door and knock.  Anyone who hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”  … Revelation 3:20

I could go on and on about all the signs of the times that even I have seen and believe… but it is not about me.  It’s about God, and only He knows the hour.  The truth [to me] is, every one of us are living in our own end times, and should consider to live like we are dying… to and from this world.  Whether Jesus comes back in an hour or in half a century, each of us should be living like He’s coming… now!  Are your “new linens” packed?  Is your heart found where your treasure lies?

He/she who has an ear, listen up…

     I have said this before, and I’ll say it again… Why would anyone expect to live in God’s House in Heaven, when they have chosen not to live with Him here?  If you knock on the door of a neighbor’s house, of whom you have never invited into yours, do you expect that they would open their door or that they would recognize you at all?

My intent in sharing is not to alarm you, but to sound the alarm…  ‘If we confess from our heart that Jesus is Lord and repent of our sins, Jesus is faithful and just to forgive us and cleanse us of all unrighteousness.’  With Jesus as our true Savior… we are covered.  When God looks at us, He will see… His Children.

When the flood gates open, will you be ready?

Falling Grace…
Posted on April 27, 2011 by jams4JESUS

As I heard His voice, I opened the door and entered through…  The Lord’s table was set before us.  As we gathered around it, waiting to be seated, God’s arm and hand extended toward us, signaling an offering that we would join hands and follow in unity… to give Grace.  And when God’s hand began to open, it was from here, His Blessings fell…
