“This is a big week in the fight against the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. On Monday, Dec. 14, the very first COVID-19 vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for emergency use was administered to millions of frontline workers across the country. This comes as COVID-19 deaths per day in the U.S. are topping 3,000. There are currently around two dozen COVID-19 vaccines and treatments in development, all of which may help to abate or end the pandemic.” Source: The Coronavirus Vaccine Number No One Is Talking About (but Should Be) (msn.com)
A vaccine in hope of bringing the COVID-19 pandemic to a halt is wonderful news. Sadly, millions have died and some who survive are dealing with declining health and side effects. Please understand that I do not make light of this pandemic and those who were caught up in its wrath. Some of my very close relatives had this deadly virus and are now experiencing major health side effects. My empathy is sincere for all affected families.
However, there is a more pressing issue with each of us fighting against Satan for our soul. Jesus, our soul vaccination sent and approved by God, is coming back soon like a thief in the night. Are we as prepared for His return as we are for the COVID-19 vaccine? Will we be ready to stand before God, the only One who can, and will, give our soul the inoculation of “Well done my good and faithful servant” or “Depart from Me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels.”
The devil knows his time is short and is diligently dispatching more demonic forces to tempt us to sin against God. Perhaps some believe there will be time to repent before Jesus’ return. But what happens if He returns in the midst of our sin? “For if we sin willfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins. (Hebrews 10:26)
Jesus said in John 17:4 “I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.” Are we striving to be prepared to meet our Maker in each moment God allows us to live?
We must remain steadfast in the faith and not put our soul salvation in the hands of Satan. In doing so, he rubs his hands together and cheerfully await our sentence to eternal damnation.
“Watch therefore; for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore, be ye also ready; for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” (Matthew 24:42-44)
