Brethren, we are on the threshold of the time of the coming
of the Lord;
a time of great change and stress;
a time of trouble and derision;
a time of pain and suffering;
a time when some will shine with glory
and a time when many will fall.
Let us then diligently seek
to abide with Christ and to keep
to stay the course and to continue to walk the straight and the
narrow pathway of righteousness;
to remain true and faithful to God;
our eyes fixed on the promised City whose Maker and Builder is the Lord and the
hope of the glorious day of the resurrection.
In that day we at last will have left behind this earth and
be assembled around the throne of God.
