Thoughts about the end of the world. And why we need to think them...

Updated on March 11, 2017

Lit to light others...

When the end of the world can really bring the beginning of it.

John 3:16 begins with For God so loved...

Thousands of years before this moment, God held His pen to the scroll of time and inscribed His letters in light of the powerful jewel of free will. While we were yet sinners it was written of a Lamb slain before the beginning of time and in the powerful sovereignty of our Creator, our God patiently allowed our choice: to find who we were designed to be... Or, in our hearts and lives to abandon God, and contaminate our souls with darkness.

And then, let there be... Let there be light in our eyes, and in our hearts. The Word of God as if when we were ready, it leapt from the pages as if it knew us. A Bible in which God cooed His Breath over warmed our imaginations that in a blackness of a universe simply reminded us that we were not alone. Little verses of poetry which sparked our soul. And valleys, dark ominous, which we walked holding an unseen hand.

And yet this journey... Is a journey which most seem to stop at. When further there was a story one rarely reads. It is the intermission between a dead spirit finds life, and the few moments it holds just before that spirit reborn breaks from its body.

It is the failed legacy of reaching those within our grasps.

How then will they call on Him in whom they have not believed? How will they believe in Him whom they have not heard? And how will they hear without a preacher?

Romans 10:14




Kathy Troccoli: Go light your world

“And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.”

“And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.” Acts 16:31

According to this scripture God thinks outside the box. He wants to leave His 99 flock for one. In fact He chooses to leave those He has in order to seek and save that which was lost. It is Jesus Heart for the lost. As God so loved the world, He sent Jesus, the Lamb slain before the foundations of the world for us. And while we were yet sinners Christ died for us.

What would home be, without our lost loved ones? What would it be like if we didn't take effort and reach those in prayer?

If we are made in the image of God, and Christ Jesus is God, than our heart should be toward not only our lost loved ones but others! Infant, may the Holy Spirit now reach out to our lost loved ones! May we seek the Face of God concerning our lost loved ones. Find Jesus. Find His pain. Minister to it. May our lives minister to Him. May we rest in His Resurrection power! And may we trust in His ability to protect us, and grant us no more than we can take...

And then... There was hell.

If you have lost someone whom you are aware had not received Christ, it is something rarely mentioned in sermons or an area often looked over until after the fact. Being aware of the times we live in, we should be mindful of others around us, and even to the branching out beyond our circles of influence to even the outer edges of the world.

The writer of this hub wrestles with eternity daily, sometimes moment by moment. Interceding in prayer causes the heart to soften, even when no light seems visible. Imagine if the person who lit your candle had walked on by. Imagine being left in spiritual darkness and to die in its suffocated grasp and to live in an eternity without God. For that is hell, isn't it? Hell is the absence of God.

Find that soul that found you. Embrace them, even pray for their own lost loved ones. For we have many within reach of our candles. So many souls at this moment are falling headfirst into insatiable jaws of hell.
