NIGHT COMETH (1)
TOPIC: NIGHT COMETH (1)
TEXT: ECCLESIASTES 12:1-14
What you are using your morning and afternoon seasons to do determines how you will spend your night time, so before you say you have no pleasure in them, find a place to think about YOUR journey in life so far. Jesus said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work”- John 9:4. The night time will surely come for everyone, it is certain and as long as the day breaks, there must surely be a night time. Work while it is day therefore; never use your morning to play. What you are using your morning to plant is the harvest you are going to reap at night. This is the time to run, it is time to fly; streetwise, you will see some adults on the road begging or going to farm to make an ends meet. I do not say it is their faults neither do I blame them for whatever they might be going through, but when you see such an elderly (wo)man on the road, what come to mind. When a dead man is being washed before interment, as they carry him/her up to be washed, his/her lifeless head will shift to one side, meaning, it is going to be your turn.
So when you see such a man on the road, what should come to your mind is, it is going to be my turn one day. Before I talk about where you will spend your eternity, let me ask you how and where will you spend your old age? The Bible says, “O that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end!”- Deut. 32:29. You will be forever wise if you use your today to think about your end and rise up to your responsibilities.
The great Preacher concluded, He said, remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth when evil days come not. Know your God now before you will need Him. When God called unto some people, they ignore, thinking they don’t need Him. What do they need from God, nothing. Business is booming, life is rosy and things are moving fine for them. But when evil days come, just one event, everything is crash, they run to church be praying unnecessary prayers. Even though God is merciful, He is also a jealous God. He will tell His messengers, leave that man there o, we have been calling him for a very long time now and he was nowhere to be found. He didn’t even looking at our side, but now he has come by himself/herself. See; don’t let us lose him/her again. We may not see him anymore if we do what he wants in time. This is more reason why a whole lot of people spend so much time in church, because while it was well with them, they never thought about coming to God.
Are you being preach to today and you thinking the preacher is a fraudster or it is because they need your tithe and offering, that is why they always knock at my doors, you say? I want to warn you, night cometh when no man can work. A time is coming when you will not even hear the sound of the grounding machine close to you. A time is coming when you will need the help of another person to lead you on the road you formerly speed on. Think today, heaven is calling and the preacher finally concluded, he said, “Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” May you find sense in today’s Word.
