LETTER TO THE EDITOR: High time’ to wake up and return to Jesus
‘High time’ to wake up and return to Jesus
The Apostle Paul writing to the church in Rome tells them in Romans 13:11: “And that, knowing the time, that now it is “High Time” to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed.”
There is no doubt that Paul is telling all Christians that it is “high time” to wake up because the return of Jesus is near. How much more relevant and urgent is Paul’s exhortation today?
It is “high time” for preachers and persons in the pews to wake up before it is too late. The Holy Spirit inspired Paul to tell us that “it is high time to wake up”, but also in 2 Corinthians 13:5 that we should check-up on ourselves to see if we truly are Christians. Paul writes; “Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates?”
Are you preachers out there preaching God’s Word, the Bible, or are you tickling itching ears? You who “profess” to be Christian, are you? Jesus says in John 8:31-32: “If you continue in My word, then are ye My disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”
Those that profess and are not in a church, don’t you think it is “high time” you woke up and checked up on yourself with the Bible being your guide? If you have never accepted Christ as Lord and Savior; don’t you think that it is “high time” you did before it is too late?
As Christians, Paul is saying to us: “It is “high time” we stood-up for truth and light and what is right. “Cast off the works of darkness, and put on the armor of light
“It is High Time!”
