MORNINGTIME 2336
 
Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? IT IS EVEN A VAPOUR, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. James 4:14. For over 6,000 years people all over this earth have been born, lived, and died. Some had full lives, some had short lives. Some died of old age, some were violently tortured and died a horrible death. Some lived a life of ease, some had troubles and trials seemingly non-stop. Women have been violently abused for years, babies have been killed before they even got started. Man had tried everything and had actually run out of new ways to torture and kill their fellow man. There is nothing new under the sun that hasn't already been done. People die young, they die of old age, they're born whole, and some seriously deformed. Pick ANY combination, it's been done already. "And as it is appointed unto men ONCE TO DIE, but after this the judgment": Hebrews 9:27. So how are you going to die? If the Lord said to you, "If you would like, I'll allow you to have a very nice life of ease and you will die of old age, but you will be of no value to me", would you take it? If He said, "I have a Glorious Plan for your life, you will walk in total Obedience to Me, and you will die in 3 days in total Service to Me, you are Precious to Me", would you take it Joyfully and die in 3 days as a Martyr as He said you would? Here's the bottom line to all this. We are ALL going to die one way or the other. Do you Love Christ enough that the WAY you die doesn't matter? Or are you holding up your requirements that God can do this, but not that? This much pain is ok, but no more? Do what you want to this world, just take me out of here before it gets too bad? All those sinners can die and go to Hell, I don't have time to talk to them, I'M GETTING OUT OF HERE, you're on your own buddy!!! "God is love", are you? Will you Preach and Teach to  the bitter end? WILL YOU DIE EVEN A MARTYR'S DEATH IN HIS SERVICE, and, Be Blessed???
