In The End, What Really Matters?

Today I received an email from Olive Tree Ministries. It contained an article by Jan Markell. Her article had to do with end-times events. The article included a link which ultimately took me to an article entitled "The AntiChrist and Mr. Obama". There has been much buzz about whether or not "The One" may or may not be "That One". And I'm not looking for the AntiChrist, but Christ. If you want to read the article for yourself, you can find it here.

In any case, there can be no disputing what the author had to say near the end of his article:

"...But whether Mr. Obama turns out to be the anti-Christ or not is really irrelevant to the Church. Our job in the short time we have left is to get ready to move to our new home. That means breaking our ties with the old one. Anything that can’t be put to kingdom use is excess baggage to us now. We should be sending whatever treasure we have up ahead. We should stop worrying about our career, our retirement fund, our lifestyle, and all those other worldly distractions and put all our resources to work for the benefit of our next life. After all it’s the real one. And one way or the other, this one is already gone."

I agree! And the Lord has been tapping me on the shoulder about this of late. This world is passing away. And the more it passes, the quicker the slide. It is time to put the worldly toys aside and send our treasure to Heaven, where we can enjoy our rewards forever!
