MORNINGTIME 2130
 
Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, EXCEPT THERE COME A FALLING AWAY FIRST, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; 2 Thessalonians 2:3. Here's a simple picture definition of "falling away". You go to the public beach with your sun screen and your little rubber raft, you lay down on the raft and gently push off from the beach until you're 20 feet from the shore looking at the ocean. It's busy with lots of people around playing in the water so you decide to take a little nap. The sun is warm, the breeze is nice, just a quick one. When you wake up, the people are gone, THE BEACH IS GONE, the sun is really hot, you're thirsty, and, is that a shark fin out there??? The ending of this story is up to you. You never meant to sleep long, just a little nap. You thought you were among friends, but no one tried to call you. Actually, if you'd known this was going to happen, YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER GONE TO SLEEP. Oh ya, now you remember, the last thing you heard was someone yelling, "Don't go to sleep". YOU DIDN'T LISTEN TO THE WARNINGS. You are now in great danger and only a miracle can save you. Apostasy works just like this. Less and less reading of the Bible, less prayer time, and no interest in "talking Bible" with those who ask you to. You thought you would be safe, that others would look out for you, and even that you really didn't think you, would put you, in danger. It looks hopeless, and that is a shark fin coming closer in your direction. You're tired, you blew it, it'll all be over soon...  why bother trying, it's hopeless.....  WAKE UP, NOW, READ THE WORD, SEEK HIS FACE, FELLOWSHIP ALL YOU CAN, CARE FOR AND ABOUT YOUR FRIENDS, OBEY THE LEADING OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, cast off worldliness and take on Holiness, Righteousness, and Purity, and Grow in CHRISTLIKENESS. Wake up sleeper, CHRIST IS COMING BACK, SOON, GET READY, and, Be Blessed.
