Brother Monk! You must come in! The storm is near and the waves are beginning to pound our poor island! You must come in, right now!
Yes, of course, but let me throw my bottle with a message into the sea. And where it lands, who knows? Someone, somewhere, with the Lord’s help shall find it and perhaps take the message to heart, I pray. Now let’s be off to the church.
Like the bottle on the sea, carried about to an unknown destination, so is the Word of God, being received in somebody by the power of the Holy Spirit. And it does not come back empty, but will do as God has proposed. And in this comes salvation. For by the Holy Spirit can you then confess Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior! You are born again into a new life in GOD, the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, one GOD, living and eternal, maker of all things, sustainer of all things, and executer of things; He is who planned the ages and all things to come forth and do what they do; H e is the judge of all men.
He will come one day soon, and call His Holy Church to Himself- true believers; first, the dead in Christ will rise from the grave. Then we who are alive shall meet them in the air above the clouds, where we shall also see Christ, for we shall be like Him. And then we shall follow Him up to Heaven to the Father Almighty, and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words.
All this shall happen before the future coming seven years of hell on earth as never, ever before, known in the Holy Bible as the “Tribulation!”
But Christ shall spare His body, the Church, from this awful, awful time that is to come after the Rapture of the Church upon all the earth, all the unbelievers!.
So send out the Word of God to all that have an ear to hear! Proclaim the Good News of Christ. He is the One who shall judge the whole world! All nations and men shall be judged for their deeds, evil or good. Send out the truth that men may know their future-know what’s coming, and know what’s in store for them! It’s all in the Holy Bible-everything…just read it! It is GOD’s spoken word written for you! But read it and you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. And your life shall change forever!
Lord, I pray that today, now, that one more Jew and one more Gentile shall come to the saving knowledge of the Lord, Jesus Christ, as their Savior. I pray for the souls of those conceived but never born, and for the little children everywhere…
In Jesus Christ’s precious name I pray,
In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit,
