Gaining Perspective

There are guesstimates on the internet relating to how many people have ever lived. I picked one of those guesstimates, that's guesstimate is :106,456,367,669 people.

Matthew 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.

Only a FEW find the narrow way that leads to life. What's "a few?" Typically "a few" means 3. So lets guesstimate a 30% "saved" rate. Which means 70% are lost. How many people would that mean are in hell/hades at this very moment? 106,456,367,669 X 70%=74,519,457,368

So....74.5 BILLION PEOPLE ARE IN HELL? For the sake of argument take or leave 10 BILLION, and let's say 64 BILLION people are in hell. Oh my.....What's the point I'm trying to make? This is so serious. Giving ourselves wholly and completely to the Lord Jesus, today, while His mercy is still extended means EVERYTHING. Time is short, regardless of when the rapture occurs, today could be your personal last day. I believe with many others that the rapture will occur any day now. Everything within me screams DEFCON 5, ALERT STATIONS. Maybe the rapture won't occur today, but what does that matter? What matters is personal readiness TODAY. Should'nt we all be living each day as if it were our last anyway? If you knew today was your last day on earth, would'nt you be a little more loving, a little more focused on the things that really mattered and alot less focused on all the worthless things in life? Time is SO VERY short. I pray for all the brothers, my family and myself now Lord Jesus, that we may be counted worthy to escape all that's about to happen and stand before you. Give us strength and wisdom to both know and do your perfect will. In Jesus name, SO BE IT, AMEN. Grace and Peace
