“Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:” – Colossians 1:28
We have Secret Agents that gather intelligence from other countries in order to warn us of possible attacks. We have the advanced Doppler radar system that warns us of any stormy, treacherous weather that may be approaching. God has his own warning system in place to warn this world of His coming judgment. God’s people are His warning system.
I can remember the tornadoes that hit our area hard in the spring of 2011. Earlier that afternoon, a friend brought up the weather forecast and the possibility for bad weather later on that night. My response was rather nonchalant. “Oh, they always say that. I haven’t seen any tornadoes in our area in my lifetime.” Well, needless to say as I awoke to a frantic wife pointing to our TV showing a tornado on the ground in our county heading toward our home, my attitude quickly changed. I can remember thinking how I wish we had been more prepared. Thankfully, the tornado turned and went in a different direction.
Surely we would warn others of an approaching tornado. But what about the spiritual storm that is coming? Are you warning others of God’s coming judgment? Have you taken the warning seriously yourself? Revelation 20:11-15
