I looked around and saw some sleeping. O how I felt as I saw some who now profess to be with us asleep as I saw them. I said, “Poor souls. They have heard of Jesus’ coming and that the day of His wrath was very soon to come, but as time went on a little longer than they expected it would, they have lost their interest. Stupidity has crept over them and now they slumber never to awake again. They ought to have watched and then they would have seen the angels.” This dream has made a great impression on my mind. I hope it will cause me to double my diligence and to make my calling and election sure. {Lt14-1850 (September 1, 1850) par. 9}

Yes we all know it do we not, and still we see how our church is trying to cozy up to the worldly churches. 

So when they had come together, they were asking Him, saying, "Lord, is it at this time You are restoring the kingdom to Israel?" 7He said to them, "It is not for you to know times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority; 8but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth."…

But he answered, 'Truly I say to you, I do not know you.' 13"Be on the alert then, for you do not know the day nor the hour.

We must in a persistent relationship with Christ in order to be ready. Tomorrow is not promised. If we are daily with him then we are always ready

I had the impression your Loyalties was laying elsewhere Leon? 

Love you Ian.

Please spare me your hypocritical remarks.

This is in response to Leon's message about being ready for the Lord's coming. Amen. May we be as the wise virgins.

Sometimes it can be difficult to tell. Most of the world are asleep. Of course they think they are awake, but they are entirely unconscious with regards to the reality that is going on. Many, many, people spend their whole lives dwelling on matters that are petty, transient, or completely imaginary ! They have no realization of the controversy that is raging on behind the scenes -- a controversy that directly involves every one of them.

And they would probably say that Christians are the ones living in a dream-world. "Those crazy people believe that the world was created, and that it took only 6 days for the whole eco-system to come into existence."

The mockers and the worldly-wise-men really are talking in their sleep. Hopefully we are not doing the same thing.
