Crisis at the Border
Lately, we have heard the term “crisis at the border” a lot. The debate going back and forth is whether or not this is a true crisis, and frankly that is another talk for another time. However, the talk got me to thinking about the future crisis at the border that will happen one day. That crisis will be on Judgment Day and that border will be Heaven. On the day of Judgment many will be having a crisis at the border of Heaven, trying to figure out how they are going to be able to enter. Unfortunately for those who are having a crisis, the time then would be far too late. Jesus warned us about those who would have the crisis when He stated the following: “Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: for I was hungry and you gave Me no food; I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink; I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.’ “Then they also will answer Him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to You?’ Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life,” Matthew 25:41-46. What a sad day for those who will be having a crisis on that day.
However, the crisis on that day can be avoided. How you may ask? Simply put, we must make sure to make our reservations in Heaven. Peter stated, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to His abundant mercy has begotten us again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you,” 1 Peter 1:3-4.
Don’t allow the crisis at the border sneak up on you, make your reservations today!
