The Last Call

Have you ever taken a train trip before? When you are in the station, you wait for your train to be called so that you can board. After it has been announced a few times, then you hear, “Last call for Train #35 going to Torino.” That last call means that if you are in the station, you have a very short time to get on board before the train leaves. There will be no other notice that the train is leaving. You will hear the air brakes release and then the wheels begin to roll. If you are not on board, it leaves without you.

I look around at our world today and I believe we are hearing “The Last Call.” Everywhere I look there is violence, war, pestilence, plagues (including Covid), and disintegration of societies. I do not see our world moving in a positive direction. I cannot imagine that man, after all he has done to mess up this world, is going to make it a better place. Those that believe that man is capable of creating “an ideal society” are sorely disillusioned. Believe me, if man could have done it, it would have happened a long time ago.

Jesus talked about a time like this on the earth. He said, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be great earthquakes in various places, and famines and pestilences; and there will be fearful sights and great signs from heaven.” Luke 21: 10-11.

Surely, anyone who is listening and looking around can hear the announcement: “We are nearing the end of the age as we know it. It is time to answer the call. Jesus is coming soon for his people. Turn to Him before it is too late.”

Have you heard the call? Are you just waiting for another and then another announcement, unaware that soon there will be no more and it will be too late to get on board? I hope not because surely what comes next is not going to be pleasant and no one wants to be around for the final act.

“For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say ‘peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman and they shall not escape.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 2-3

Please, I beg you, answer the call before it is too late!

  1. I have found that, regardless of circumstances, the best way to live each day is to try to be the best version of oneself possible in God.

    Pardon my skepticism about claims regarding any given time being the End Times. I know too much about previous predictions of the End Times to accept that now will be any different, in that regard, that the gazillion previous times. I also know too much about human history and nature to hold a positive opinion of human nature. In my mind, human depravity is a fact, not an article of faith. Faith kicks in when one lacks evidence for and against a proposition.

    • I know what you mean about the end times, but this is the first time in 2,000 years that Israel is in the land….
      there are so many opinions out there, we each have one. I just see so many things coming together. Years ago, when everyone was talking about it, technology was not in place to fulfill some of the things in the Book of Revelation…now it is. It certainly must be closer than it was then. Bless you, my brother in Christ!

  2. Valerie, such a good piece!! I, too, believe we’ve heard last call. If we’re not running for the train, ticket in hand, we’re going to miss out on the best ride!

    Jesus offers hope, no matter the situation or condition. This world isn’t my home … I’m just a’passin’ through!

    All aboard!!

  3. It’s certainly a warning or reminder for all of us to repent before it’s too late. We are responsible for all that is happening with us. We are creating a perfect atmosphere for the Devil to destroy all those who are planning to return to the Heavenly Father with a contrite heart.Thanks a lot madam for sharing the blessed post. Take care.πŸ™πŸ˜Š

  4. It sure feels like we are living in Last Times. Only God knows for sure, but in the meantime, it is still our job to do just what you laid out in this post, and tell people about Jesus, just is case, or before it is too late.
