“Judgement Day”

“The time was the 19th of May 1780. The place was Hartford, Connecticut. The day has gone down in New England history as a terrible foretaste of Judgment Day. For at noon the skies turned from blue to gray and by mid-afternoon had blackened over so densely that, in that religious age, men fell on their knees and begged a final blessing before the end came. The Connecticut House of Representatives was in session. And as some men fell down and others clamored for an immediate adjournment, the Speaker of the House, one Colonel Davenport, came to his feet. He silenced them and said these words: “The Day of Judgment is either approaching or it is not. If it is not, there is no cause for adjournment. If it is, I choose to be found doing my duty. I wish, therefore, that candles may be brought.”  Robert P. Dugan, Jr.,

Dear church, on “Judgement Day” there will be no time for making decisions about your future or attempting to atone for your past.  It will come upon us on a day we do not know and a time we do not think it will be.  But know this, it is coming, and the real question is, if Jesus was to come today would you be found doing your duty towards the Lord Jesus Christ?   If you cannot answer that question, then you are not ready for the Lord’s return.  If you can answer the question and know you are not doing your duty you need to repent today.  If you are living for the Lord and actively serving the Lord, then you must stay faithful looking for the day of redemption.   What is your answer?  Pastor Mark
