With the world the way it is and the way things are shaping up with fulfilled end times prophecy, all true Christians need to stay focused on the one main issue: the saving grace of Jesus through his death on the cross and his resurrection power to live our lives in these troubling days. Enough of prosperity theology, or living by the law, or making an issue about what day of the week to worship on. These things are not going to save anyone. The only thing that will save anyone is the shed blood of Jesus upon the cross of calvary. Baptism will not save you; nor will speaking in tongues. Good works or going to church, or giving to the poor, will not save you.
It is time to realize that there is only one way to salvation. Jesus said "I am the way, the truth, and the life, no person comes to the Father but by me." We must focus on the finished work of salvation provided for you and me on the cross 2,000 years ago. Everything else is heresy, false teaching, and the deception of Satan.
Time is short. End times prophecies are being fulfilled before our very eyes. The pope is working diligently to organize the One World Church. Look at how things are building up in the middle east. I could go on and on about the end time scenario. The world is ripe for a savior. The unfortunate thing is that the anti-Christ is going to delude many people in believing that he is the savior. That is why we must know the truth.
It is time to bond together as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, who have been saved by his grace. Let's restore our relationships. Get rid of any bitterness. Heal our broken marriages. Get deliverance from our addictions. Have physical and spiritual breakthroughs. It is time to focus on the only thing that really matters: our relationship with Jesus Christ. Let's not let anything stand in the way of that.
Don't call yourself a Christian if you have not made a conscious, willful decision to invite Jesus into your heart as Lord and Savior. Thinking of yourself as a Christian just because you go to church, pray, read your Bible, or do good deeds won't cut it, people. One must get serious about their Christian faith.
There is a lot of deception in the world right now. Some people have a false hope of salvation because they either think that they are automatically saved, or they are putting their trust in things that will not save them. The sad part about this is that many of these people will go into the Tribulation Period, the worse time of adversity and judgment this world has ever known. Put your faith in Jesus now so that you can escape the coming judgment and spend eternity with God. The only other alternative is eternal separation from God in what many people believe to be a literal hell.
Christians, we must bond together now, more than ever. Let's don't get off on issues that don't really matter. Let's preach and teach Jesus and Him crucified for our salvation, and nothing else. Time is short. We may not have much time left to preach the truth before we are raptured, or before we are silenced.

One thing is certain. Today is 1 day closer to that time than yesterday was. Today could be the day! But should the Lord tarry another thousand years, one other thing is certain. OUR time is always short as a human. From Psalm 90:12 " So teach us to count our days that we may gain a wise heart."
