The Sky Is On Fire!
You just never know
what a day will bring into your life—or if you will lose your life.
“Boast not thyself of to morrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth.”
(Holy Bible, Proverbs 27:1, KJV)
Our family lives in Hidden Valley Lake, California. One day I was working two hours away from home, and had driven the family car to work. My wife was at home with our seven children, ages 13 to 6.
We had heard that there was a wild fire burning two towns away, but we thought we were safe in our location. That evening, my wife made dinner, and had all of the children sit down to eat. While they were praying, the lights had gone out, so when they finished, she got up and opened the door to look outside.
The sky was orange, and there
was a terrible roaring sound!
She quickly cried out to the children, “Grab your shoes! We have to go—NOW!” She prayed and asked the Lord for help.
If you had faced the same situation, what words would have gone out of your mouth—PRAYER words, or SWEAR words? Many people swear when faced with sudden danger. Jesus said that our mouths show the true condition of our hearts: “Out of the abundance of the HEART the MOUTH speaketh”(Holy Bible, Matthew 12:34b, KJV).
How could my wife ever get our family to safety, when I had the car? “For with God NOTHING shall be IMPOSSIBLE” (Holy Bible, Luke 1:37, KJV).
Just two houses away, an elderly handyman had been working. When he left work, he normally turned right to go home—but today, he turned left, and drove right by our house. God answers prayer! Do not curse God—call upon Him to help you. “And CALL upon ME in the day of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify me” (Holy Bible, Psalms 50:15, KJV).
My wife also remembered our next-door-neighbor who doesn’t drive, and sent our daughter to quickly go get him. She put the small children in the front, and the rest had to pile in the back between the tool boxes.
My family had no time to get anything out of our house.
One day, you also are going to leave every material possession behind. “For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and LOSE his own SOUL?” (Holy Bible, Mark 8:36, KJV). Are you prepared to leave everything that you own behind, and to stand before God? “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment” (Holy Bible, Hebrews 9:27, KJV).
Traffic was stop-and-go, trying to leave town. As my family headed for the freeway, the people driving the opposite way yelled:
The road ahead is on fire!”
Are you on a road in life, that is leading you straight into the flames? “The WAY of LIFE is ABOVE to the wise, that he may DEPART from HELL BENEATH.” (Holy Bible, Proverbs 15:24, KJV). While you have the chance, turn around, and ask Jesus to save you! “Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out” (Holy Bible, Acts 3:19a, KJV).
The fire was now on both sides of the road, and the air became black with smoke.
My family saw trees,
just like matches,
suddenly burst into flames.
Will blackness and flames be your eternal end? “To whom is reserved the BLACKNESS of DARKNESS FOR EVER” (Holy Bible, Jude 1:13b, KJV). “SUFFERING the vengeance of ETERNAL FIRE” (Holy Bible, Jude 1:7b, KJV).
When we finally got to go back home, it was an unbelievable sight.
3 towns and 1,000 homes were destroyed—some people died.
We saw the houses of our three neighbors, and they were destroyed by the fire that had ripped through our neighborhood—with one of those just 30 feet from our house.
Miraculously, our HOME was UNTOUCHED by the FIRE!
In our yard was the evidence of the battle fought to save our home—a pair of fire-fighter’s gloves and a fire hose.
More importantly, the evidence still remains of the battle that the Lord Jesus Christ fought to save your soul from the flames of hell—the cross and an empty tomb. Jesus gave His pure blood on the cross to pay for your sins, and then He arose from the grave, proving that it was sufficient.
Do you believe that Jesus is the Son of God, God Almighty in the flesh, the Creator of heaven and earth? Do you believe that Jesus is the only Savior; that He died on the cross for you, and gave His pure, sinless blood to pay your sin debt; and then He arose from the grave the third day? Will you now repent of your sins, and receive the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? Call upon Him right now to forgive you, to save your soul, and to transform your life for His glory. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Holy Bible, Romans 10:13, KJV)
Yes, I just asked the Lord Jesus Christ to save me, and I desire to now live for Him.
God wants you to now openly confess Him by getting baptized under the water, and to faithfully attend a Bible-preaching church. If you will write to us, we have some excellent Bible Study Courses to help you learn more.
