Be Doing
in End Times
Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality. Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse them.

For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.

--- 1 Corinthians 16:13

Jesus warned us time and again about watching, being alert, being strong in the Lord, sober in spirit.
Many read these warning but do not fully understand why it is so important especially in the end times.
It is because it will be so easy to "fall into sin" and to "fall away from the Lord" due to "deception", "greed", and "persecution". (we know these 3 reasons from seed parable) We need earnest on-our-face-praying during these treacherous times that we not fall victim to the schemes of the devil. It is VERY IMPORTANT that we maintain our TESTIMONY and focused prayer life (Luke 22:46). We must "stay awake at all times, praying" ( Luke 21:34,36). Many will not endure the difficult times ahead. We will need to be walking in the power of the Holy Spirit not to fall into temptation to sin.
