By Sherly Isaac

Last week tsunami, earthquake and floods have wiped away many villages and many lives in various parts of the world. Once Jesus' disciples asked Jesus what would be the sign of His coming back. Mat 24:3, "And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? What will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?"

Then Jesus replied to them in Mat 24:6-8, "you will hear of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not troubled; for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of sorrows."

We are seeing that some of those signs have come to pass in recent days. But according to Jesus, these are the beginning of sorrows. Bible talks about a day coming when He appears like a refiner's fire and that nobody could stand before Him. We read in Mal 3:1-2, "Behold, I send My messenger, And he will prepare the way before Me. And the Lord, whom you seek, Will suddenly come to His temple, Even the Messenger of the covenant, In whom you delight. Behold, He is coming," Says the LORD of hosts. "But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner's fire And like launderers' soap."

Also in Mal 4:1-2, "For behold, the day is coming, Burning like an oven, And all the proud, yes, all who do wickedly will be stubble. And the day which is coming shall burn them up," Says the LORD of hosts, "That will leave them neither root nor branch. But to you who fear My name The Sun of Righteousness shall arise With healing in His wings; And you shall go out And grow fat like stall-fed calves."

When Jesus was going back to heaven, He promised that one day He will come back. The first time when Jesus came, He came to give His life for every humankind, to save them from their sins. but the second time He is coming to judge the world. That day is coming very near. But the question is, are we ready to meet our creator? Can we stand before His glory, before His holiness, when He comes back?

If you think that you are not ready to face the creator, you need to accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. You need to repent from your sins and get washed by the precious blood of Jesus. Only those who are holy having been washed by His blood, only those whose sins have been forgiven and washed by the precious blood of Jesus could enter into heaven while others could not.

Jesus also said to be watchful and be prepared for the coming of the Lord as we read in Mat 24:42-44, "Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect."

Hope for the Hopeless - Part 5

By Sherly Isaac

Naomi came back to Bethlehem with Ruth, her daughter-in-law. This young woman who had lost her husband had no hope for the future. Being a foreigner and a widow, all her hopes were lost. Her future was not promising. According to the customs of Israel, if a woman becomes a widow and if her husband had no other brothers, there was no chance for getting married or to have a dignified life in society. Despite all odds Ruth decides to follow Naomi her mother-in-law and her God. She replies to her mother-in-law in Ruth 1:16, "But Ruth said: "Entreat me not to leave you, Or to turn back from following after you; For wherever you go, I will go; And wherever you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people, And your God, my God."

So, Ruth comes with Naomi to Bethlehem, a foreign land not known to her. She did not know what to expect in that new land or what to do, but she was determined to follow her new found faith. Bible tells us that she found favor in the eyes of Boaz who later married her. Her love to follow God brought blessings in her life as well as in the life of her mother-in-law. Her determination to follow God turned impossibility into possibility for her. Her faded hopes and her dead dreams came alive again. God blessed her that even Jesus came through her lineage.

Yes, my friend, when we walk with the Lord, when we follow Him, when we love Him with all our hearts, He blesses us and makes us a blessing. And impossibilities turn to possibilities, dead dreams come alive because of His mighty power that every situation turns around.

Psalmist says in Psa 84:11, "For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly."

Have you lost all your hope today? Are you in a complete impossible situation today? Look to Jesus, He can help you. He can bring you out of your situation and can make things possible.
