Are You Ready?

Late 2017 – Early 2018, I kept having a conviction to talk about the Second Coming of Jesus. But, thinking about it alone frightened me because it is a very sensitive subject matter. Nonetheless, it should not be ignored.

Anyways, if you are reading this, it finally means that I gained courage through the help of the Holy Spirit to write about it as honestly and truthfully as I can.

Have you watched “Left Behind” or any movie that speaks about the Second Coming? If you have and it scared you, let me just say those movies were on a lighter note.

That’s when Michael, the great angel-prince, champion of your people, will step in.

It will be a time of trouble, the worst trouble the world has ever seen.

But your people will be saved from the trouble, every last one found written in the Book.

Many who have been long dead and buried will wake up,

Some to eternal life, others to eternal shame.

         (Daniel 12:1-2)

When I was younger, I used to have dreams that seemed like Déjà vu, each time they happened it seemed surreal. And, in this devotional, I will be sharing two that I have had consecutively and I pray deeply that the Holy Spirit ministers to you.

First –

Very few people were left in the world. It was full of chaos and disorder. People had no idea of who they were or where to go to. And there were devilish-like creatures with fat horns and huge bodies lurking at every corner. Every time this creature touched a human, the human immediately transformed to the creature. But, when I passed by the creature, it did not touch me. It only simply ignored me. It felt like the devil was taking those who belonged to him. I understand that this might seem like a fantasy/horror/thriller movie but it was intense. I remember waking up from the dream really sweaty and intense.

I will not be talking with you much more like this because the chief of this godless world is about to attack. But don’t worry – he has nothing on me, no claim on me.

(John 14:30)

I do not know what it is the devil has on you. You may not have attained perfection. But, how consistent in your walk with the Holy Spirit. The truth is whether you or I like it or not, the world is ending soon. And even though there are times, I pray for more time to experience more and do more things. God’s time will always be the best. So, whatever you do now or tomorrow, make sure the devil has and will have nothing on you.


Second –

There were several cars stopped on the road. Thick smoke in the air at a far distance from where I and a group of other people waited for the cars in front of us to move. When we realized no one or car was moving, we got down from the car. Then I saw a transparent-like liquid very long move on the road. I was intrigued and bent down to take a closer look. And when I did, it crawled back towards where the bus was parked. Everyone ran into the bus and when it got to my turn, they pushed me and allowed it pass through my right eye. They screamed and asked me to stay away from them. “Why did they not help me? You might ask. Well, it was bound to happen. The world will hate you and me not for any other reason except they hate Jesus. Also, the world finds it hard to believe in sacrificial love. Every man for himself.

They are going to throw you to the wolves and kill you, everyone hating you because you carry my name. And then from bad to worse, it will be dog-eat-dog, everyone at each other’s throat, everyone hating each other.

(Matthew 24:9-10)


Jesus is coming soon. Maybe the question you should ask yourself is Are you prepared? How prepared are you? No one else but you knows what your inside is like. Be honest and truthful to yourself. Stop procrastinating your rededication to God. And if you are an advocate, preacher or an evangelist, also try to bring your flesh under subjection.

Prepare yourself because the darker days are coming and the true horror is coming. May the Holy Spirit help you.
