Each of you have been given a specific allotment of time on the planet to determine your destiny. Your timer started the day you responded to My call to salvation. The moment you were born again, your time clock started. Your time of departure from earth is preset; for some of you it is as soon as tomorrow, while others have more time, Hebrews 9:27.
Most western believers think they’re time has been allotted for playing and having as much fun as possible, yet nothing could be further from the truth. Everyone including the dead, small and great, will stand before My Father; and the books will be opened: and another book will be opened, which is the book of life: and the dead will be judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works and what they did with their time, Revelation 20:12.
Most western believers could care less about eternity, the kingdom, and life after death. They are so far removed from it I don’t even know them. When they stand before My Father, not one football, baseball, or soccer game will ever be mentioned except when I explain to Father how they spent their time on earth.
The only money that will be mentioned is what went to the poor, the orphan and the widow except for the time wasted on making money for themselves.
The only education that will be mentioned is that which advanced My kingdom on earth.
If you are a believer the only thing you should be focusing on for the rest of your life is your time investment! When your time is up, and you are in eternity your memory of your time on earth will be a vapour, that appears for a little time, and then vanisheth away, James 4:14.
Western believers are in a stupor, lulled to sleep by luxury, a pathetic condition that grieves the hosts of heaven. You have only one opportunity, only one short life, to set up and plan your entire eternal destiny and most of you are playing it all away.
In a flash the life you are now living, will be over and you will be standing in front of the Judge of all the earth as He examines and displays to billions of silent onlookers, what you did with your time! Some of you I have called, and you are offering excuses and running from your call.
My friend, your time is being doubly wasted, because you are miserable even as you play on earth!
My child, I have given you much and to whoever much is given, of him shall be much required, Luke 12:48. Your sorrow will be great on that day, because you rejected My call.
May I suggest that you stop and reconsider all that you are doing with your time. Time is all you have to offer Me and time is all you need to determine your eternal destiny. Please walk in wisdom amongst them that are lost, redeeming the time, don’t waste another minute, Colossians 4:5.
