THE LAST TRUMPET

In a moment in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible and we shall be changed” I cor 15:52

Suddenly the alarm sounded with a terrifying and blasting sound unabated. The sound of the alarm woke up the residents of the 14-storey building. I was on the 10th floor. It was about 2.00am.. In the night when the sound of the alarm broke out. There was perplexity and fear in the building, as nobody seemed to know what was happening.

Finally, we got to know that it was a fire alarm. Then, what next? The instruction was clear, Since it was a winter season, we were to take nothing but our winter jacket and leave everything and immediately get out of the building through the stair-case. The electric elevator was to be avoided.

I wonder why I must leave everything that I have amassed in the foreign country1 To escape for my dear life. The Bible says, “For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out” I Timothy 6:7

My dear reader, who knows when the last trumpet will sound when you have to leave everything and answer the call of God? The only remedy is to prepare and be ready.

HOW CAN YOU BE READY
Friend, why must you loose all in this world and miss eternity? I look forward to meeting you in the kingdom of God.
