Dark Days by Omoruyi Uwuigiaren

Do you know that God respects no man? If you sin, you will sink! Humans naturally reflect their world. So your actions are the product of what is in you. Evil has crept into the world. Only people that identify with Jesus Christ will swim to safety on the last day. "The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runs into it and is safe" (Proverbs 18v10).

For you to enjoy your place in eternity, you must embrace righteousness. Anything short of this is a highway to hell. "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people" (Proverbs14v34). We have stepped into dark days; the era that Jesus Christ prophesied about over two thousand years ago. He said and I quote, "And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. For many shall come in my name, saying I am the Christ; and shall deceive many. Any ye shall hear of wars and rumors of wars, see that ye be not troubled. For all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom; and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrow" (Matthew 24v8-14).

You cannot sit on the fence. You either swim with Jesus or sink with Satan. Remember that if you are a friend of the world, you are God's enemy(James 4v4). If you don't embrace godliness, you will breed worldliness.My Friend, it is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God(Hebrew10v31). Whether you believe it or not, Satan hunts for your soul everyday(1Peter 5v8).

Do you know that people die on daily basis and as you are reading this piece that someone had just kicked the bucket? No matter how powerful you are, you are not in total control of your life. You can only be secured if Jesus Christ is in your boat. "He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadows of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in Him will I trust (Psalm 91v1-2).
Surrender to Jesus today. Tomorrow may be too late.
