The Bible reading taken from the holy book,Gospel according to Luke 21vs5-11 was read by MS PETER JOY.
And as some were saying of the temple that itwas decorated with handsome (shapely and magnificent) stones and consecrated offerings [[a]laid up to be kept], He said,As for all this that you [thoughtfully] look at, the time will come when there shall not be left here one stone upon another that will not be thrown down.And they asked Him, Teacher, when will this happen? And what sign will there be when this is about to occur?And He said, Be on your guard and be careful that you are not led astray; for many will come in My name [[b]appropriating to themselves the name Messiah which belongs to Me], saying, I am He! and, The time is at hand! Do not go out after them.And when you hear of wars and insurrections (disturbances, disorder, and confusion), do not become alarmed and panic-stricken and terrified; for all this must take place first, but the end will not [come] immediately.Then He told them, Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.There will be mighty and violent earthquakes, and in various places famines and pestilences (plagues: [c]malignant and contagious or infectious epidemic diseases which are deadly and devastating); and there will be sights of terror and great signs from heaven.
Why are we talking about the end time?We are talking about the end time because we are drawing nearer to the end of the year…this reminds us that we are also drawing nearer to the coming of christ.
According to the Bible Reading,false prophets will arise,fake Christians….many will arise saying they are christ. We were told not to believe them because it is not the way of salvation but of destruction.
*If something happens now and you discover you body is on the floor,your spirit looking at it. what do you think you can take along? Your certificate? Your admission?? Your phone??? Your children??? You can take nothing.
• Even a day old baby is a candidate of death. Whatever you are doing you have to do them right for you don’t know when it is time for your own death… There is no uncorrectable mistake. You can’t reverse the actions but you can amend your ways..
I pray that the grace to be able to amend our ways and follow christ will be granted into us now in JESUS name. AMEN.
The closing prayer was said as we took the grace in unison.
