1 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful, 2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and in His law he meditates day and night. 3 He shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bring forth its fruit in its season, whose leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper. 4 The ungodly are not so, but are like the chaff which the wind drives away. 5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous. 6 For the LORD knows the way of righteous, but the way of the ungodly shall perish. Psalms 1 (NKJV)
Lord, let my character be of the righteous and not of the ungodly.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Matthew 24:12-13
The disciples asked Jesus what sign would show the end of the world. Jesus begin to tell them about false prophets and the false Christs who will come claiming to be the Christ, there will be threats of wars and nations warring against nations, and kingdoms against kingdoms. There will be famines and earthquakes in all parts of the world. Can we see the sign of His Second Coming? Sin is running rampant and brotherly love that we should have each other is cold. We hear on the news and read in the newspapers of someone being killed whether it’s an adult or a child in cold blood and without any remorse for their actions. Those who had a zeal for God are missing in action. For adversities have caused them to give up and they no longer feel there is a God and have lost all faith in Him. But Jesus lets us know if we remain in Him and bear through all these troubles, we shall be saved from judgment. Are you ready for the coming of the Lord?
