To the Editor:

On Sunday, March 8, 2020, daylight saving time begins and we spring forward and move our time ahead one hour. We are told it’s a great time to check our smoke detectors. The Bible says to examine yourself. So it’s even more important to know where you are spending eternity and that you won’t be smoking, burning and suffering for eternity.

It’s smart that all of the sudden people all across America are prepping for the coronavirus by getting extra food, water, toiletries and medicine so that if an outbreak occurs they wouldn’t have to go to stores and increase their stress and the risk of infection. The Bible praises ants for storing months of food as wise. It’s right to plan ahead in this life but even wiser to prepare for eternity. The Bible says in Proverbs 27 and James 4 don’t boast about tomorrow. You haven’t been promised tomorrow. Over 150,000 people die every day. The good news for everyone is Jesus died for our sins and you can go to heaven if you trust Jesus as your only way to heaven and believe in His death, burial and resurrection.

The good news for Christians is that Jesus is coming back very soon. God’s book, the Holy Bible, promises Jesus will return to take his faithful followers and children to live with Him in his glorious presence forever. (John 14:3) Everyone else will be left behind to suffer in the most difficult times in history called the seven-year tribulation. If Jesus were to come today to take those who believe in him as their Savior to heaven in the rapture would you be included? Don’t be left behind! It’s written in 2 Peter 3, “there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lust and saying, where is the promise of his (Jesus) coming?” Are you watching for Jesus coming or are you a scoffer? The Bible says there’s a reward crown for those watching for the return of Jesus. Some scoffers say nothing changes and people have been saying Jesus is coming for 30 years. The Earth is seeing record weather chaos and strange events that smashes record after record. Record earthquakes and volcanoes have occurred.

“Rapture coming very soon to a Christian loved one near you. Advance reservation required from Jesus for this once in a lifetime out of this world trip and make over!”
