So Little Time, So Much To Do

๐ŸŒพ So little time and so much to do!ย 

๐Ÿ“– 1 Corinthians. 15:51-54 51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, 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. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.ย ๐ŸŒพ

Earlier this week, we celebrated the Biblical festival of Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets) otherwise known as Rosh Ha Shana. What’s interesting about Rosh Ha Shana (the Jewish celebration of the New Year), is that it doesn’t fall on the first day of the first month. It actually falls on the first day of the seventh month! It’s difficult for outsiders to understand this concept, but if we study how the Jewish year begins and how God is outlining this age according to the Jewish feasts it all makes sense.ย ๐ŸŒพ

The first month of the Jewish year begins with Passover. Two thousand years ago, the new age began with the crucifixion of Jesus on the Cross on Passover! Next, Messiah rose from the dead precisely on day of the celebration of first fruits. Then, fifty days later, the Feast of Shavout (Pentecost) began the celebration of the harvest season. This day marked the outpouring of the Holy Spirit and the beginnings of the first harvest right here in Jerusalem as three thousand souls came into the kingdom!ย ๐ŸŒพ Now, here we are, in the midst of the summer harvest — the harvest of souls, awaiting the great sound of the trumpet! When the trumpet sounds — it shall be the beginning of a new age when “this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality!”ย ๐ŸŒพ So as we celebrate Rosh Ha Shana or Yom Teruah (Feast of Trumpets), it’s a reminder that this age is soon coming to a close — that the summer will soon end and there will be no more days to work. Let’s take heed the sound of the shofar and rise to this awesome occasion!ย ๐ŸŒพ

Brethren, we live this life only once, so let’s do what we need to do while we still can!ย ๐ŸŒพ Let’s not put off the good we are called to do!ย ๐ŸŒพ

Don’t put off forgiving others — forgive now!ย ๐ŸŒพ

Don’t put off sharing with that neighbor with whom you’ve been wanting to share for years — share now!ย ๐ŸŒพ

Don’t put off going forth and doing the great things God has called you to do — do them now!ย ๐ŸŒพ

These are the final days of the harvest — let’s get out into the field and finish the work that needs done so that we might all be able to rejoice together in the end!!ย

๐Ÿช” Finish Well ๐ŸคŽ

Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us ๐ŸคŽ Hebrews 12:1
