At Last He Missed It

Saturday 3rd November 2018 Morning Prayer Devotion

Scripture Reading:- Revelation 20:11-15

Topic:- At Last He Missed It

Text:- Revelation 20:15

It rained the previous night. I slept late on Saturday night and thus, woke up late.
My Church service starts by 8am but when Iopened my eyes, it was exactly 8:12 am. I
sprang up from my matress, removing my blapresses quickly as I can and didn’t even
bother to bathe. Brushing my teeth within ten seconds, I wore my already pressed clothes,
and ran off to church.
My roommate was still sleeping but I didn’t think he planned going to church at all. So with
out saying goodbye or waking him up, I left the room.
When I stepped out, I saw some young students of the fellowship who meet in front of my
hostel. They were just setting up in preparation for their service. I think they start theirs
around 9a.m.

The way the weather was, with the clouds dark and heavy, everywhere looked gloom and
quiet but in my hurry, I took no time to observe or relish the remarkable atmosphere.
As I walked and ran on the tarred narrow road, just some distance from my hostel, I saw
two girls sitting on a pavement and crying. They were dressed for church but with the way
they sat and clinged to each other, weeping, I doubt if they would still go to Church that

Though many passers-by like me walked and paused to stare at them, they were clearly
unconcerned. They cried uncontrollably that even their shouts of pain made my heart
flutter. I thought about going to them and trying to console them but I was late for service
myself. My conscience tortured me a great deal but when I glanced at my wristwatch, it
was already 8:32a.m. I am late. I have to go. I told myself as I continued on my path.
Well, after few minutes, I made it to Church eventually. Except for a guy I saw who rested
his head against a wall by the road, I didn’t notice any other strange thing till I got to Church.
But when I entered the Church, it was another sight I beheld. The backdrop of the altar
and the designs of the pulpit and walls of the venue were already set up but I didn’t. see
the Pastor. In fact, I didn’t see any of the Church leaders. The Church was scanty. Except
for two ushers and three choristers I saw, most of the workers I knew were not present.
There were some members present though. But every single person in the building was
looking lost. The brother beside me was even shedding tears without crying. I too was
getting afraid.
And then all of a sudden, a lady cried out just behind me. It was so sudden and the sound
was so laced with pain and fear that I was afraid the worst had happened.
This is when I dropped my Bible on a chair and had a deliberate look of the whole church.
In the left corner of the front which was designated as choir stand, three sisters placed
their heads on the table in front of them; shaking their heads and body in that manner
some people do when praying silently.

Event just behind them was yet another sister who sat on the bare floor, with one of her
shoes nowhere near her. Even her scarf was hung around her neck.
I recognized the sister. She led choruses in the evening service we had the previous
thursday. But now, the sweet voice I heard turned to a painful mutter of incomprehensible
words. She held on to the corner of a table with her two hands, and wept as she said
things I didn’t understand.
At this point, I knew this could only mean one thing but I didn’t want to believe it. I couldn’t
just bring myself to believing it. I couldn’t. I was still pondering on what all these mean
when an older man sitting two chairs before me stood up suddenly and shouted with a
voice crackled, broken and almost lost. ‘Lord God! Please have mercy!’

Prayer Points:-
1. I command anything in my life that can hinder me of making heaven at the end of my life, die by fire now, in the name of Jesus Christ!
2. I refuse to go to hell! Heavenly kingdom is my portion, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. I will not missed the rapture, Holy Spirit, help me to make it, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Oh Lord God, rain upon me, Your morning rain, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Saturday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
