The coming of the Lord will be a great day, but he cannot come now or no time soon, because we are not ready for his return.
Some people say the churches (referring to a physical building) are not on the same accord, and they are right. What they are not saying is all of the people that are not on the same accord, we argue about this, and we argue about that, which shows we are a divided people.
Jesus wants everyone to go to heaven, or at least the majority of us, we already know not everyone will go to heaven, but let’s shoot for it anyway. We are leaving people out by saying there is no hope for them because they are liars, fornicator’s, adulterers, homosexuals, etc…
We all have some faults, but Jesus does not want us to dwell on each other shortcomings, he wants us all to come together as one no matter what our faults are. Do not find fault with the church (building) it is the people all over the world that is at fault.
I do not think pastors are doing all they can to keep peace and togetherness among their members. But then the members should be kinder and forgiving toward each other too. Jesus will not return until more of us become true believers.
We need to start praying for everyone whether they are believers or not because everyone deserves a chance to go to heaven, this includes burglars, rapists, murders, etc… all they have to do is repent and their chance of going to heaven is as good as anyone.
Love your neighbors the same as you love yourselves that will get rid of any hate in your heart unless you hate yourself. A lot of people say they love their neighbors, but when you look at the condition of the world today you know that is a lie.
Why we cannot love each other is a big issue, have Jesus harden our hearts? We should pray even more if that is the case. Pray that Jesus will soften our hearts and give us more faith, because personally I do not want to go to hell, and I do not think anyone else wants to go there either.
There are a lot of people deceiving and taking advantage of other people, and this is being done daily on a large scale. But we still have to pray for them and forgive them also. Jesus would say forgive them because they do not know what they are doing, and we should say that too.
There are some believers among us who cannot wait for Jesus to return, I want him to return too, but I am not in a hurry for his return. Plus, some of us are in such a sad state that if he did return today, we would not be ready to go back to heaven with him.
We know that everyone is not going to pray, so the people who are going to be praying should double up on their prayers. I do pray but I know I could do better, because like I stated earlier everyone is not going to pray, so it is my duty to pray for them.
I try to love everyone, but I can see where I could use some improvement in that area. I have asked Jesus to help me, and I can see some improvement, and maybe I am not as bad off as I think I am. Sometimes Satan will try to make you think you are worse off than you actually are.
Now we know what we have to do to get ready for the coming of the Lord. It will not be easy, but it will not be impossible either.
