Most will know that I am being facetious and not setting a date but my point still stands: How would you live if you knew that He was returning in four months. Would your concerns be centered on the here and now or on the eternal? Would you worry about storing up treasures here on earth or would you be diligently seeking the lost that you know would spend eternity in hell and torment? Would you be pleading with friends, family and strangers to come to Christ for forgiveness before they come to Him in judgement. As it is written...every knee shall bow.

Rev 3:18 I advise you to buy from Me gold refined by fire so that you may become rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself, and that the shame of your nakedness will not be revealed; and eye salve to anoint your eyes so that you may see.
- And for a few of those that have never really stepped inside the Church of Jesus Christ and have no sense of their danger I leave you two scriptures.
Mat 16:26 "For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?
Heb 2:2 For if the word spoken through angels proved unalterable, and every transgression and disobedience received a just penalty,
Heb 2:3 how will we escape if we neglect so great a salvation? After it was at the first spoken through the Lord, it was confirmed to us by those who heard,
