Most people don’t realize that they have a dead-line. As a friend of mine said,”You better be washed in the blood-line before you cross the dead-line.” Which simply means that there is a dead line for everything,and everyone leading to death. Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 calls it a time or a season instead of dead-line, which means the same thing. In verse 2 it reminds us that there is a time to die and it is written,”that it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement” (Hebrews 9:27).The big question is ARE YOU PREPARED? AND DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR FINAL DESTINATION IS?
If you should die at this moment, you would have reached your deadline. Where will you end up? Heaven or hell? Jesus died for us and before He died He knew where He was going and where His final destination would be AND it was better than where He had been. Isn’t it better to meet your Maker before the undertaker or the funeral director.
Bob Marley, said in one of his songs, “How many will have to suffer, and how many will have to die?” This was a question asked when the riots seemed endless in Jamaica(West Indies). Now today, as a Christian I look at the world and contemplate the same thing. How many unbelievers and non – Christians will have to suffer, die, and go to hell because they refuse to accept God’s gift of His only begotten son (Jesus Christ). as written in John 3:16,For God so love the world that He gave us Jesus so that no one would perish,It’s not His wish that any should perish;Because the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life (Romans 8:23). God will not force or entice us, the choice is ours and every death is a reminder of the fact that you have a dead line to make a choice, like everything else in life.
God said in Hosea 4:6, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee…” People fail to realize that the worlds definition of knowledge is not the same as Godly knowledge; and college education is totally different from spiritual education. That is why God has to remind us in Proverbs 3:5-6, to trust in Him with all our hearts, and don’t depend on our own understanding; and when we acknowledge Him in all our ways, He promises to direct our path. How many Easters’, Christmas’, and funerals do you have to go through, hear about, or participate in before you reach your dead-line, and realize it’s too late? I don’t know how much time you or I have left to live, do you know how much time is left? God is the only one who has that answer, do you really want to play with Him?
Still the question remains un – answered. How many more will suffer and die, before you realize that there is a God and He has a dead-line on your life. Again I must remind you that Hebrews 9:27 tells us, that it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgement. You must know that physical death is a result of sin caused by Adam on mankind (Genesis 3:9). The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23), but the gift of God is eternal life. For the Christian death is called sleep, because at Jesus’ return we will all go up to greet Him in the air. Who would you rather be with Jesus in paradise, or the devil in hell.

All glory, praise, honor, and thanks go to God, the Immortal, Invisible, and only wise one, who used me as one of His messengers to get His message out to the lost and un-saved, in every language, to every country, to every nation, I pray that He will give all who read this and those who pass it on the spiritual necessities to comprehend what the Spirit of the Lord has to say to His people, and that they may act accordingly before the deadline, in Jesus Mighty Name I pray, Amen.
