6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand.
7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

“Knowing that shortly I must put off this my tabernacle, even as our Lord Jesus Christ hath shewed me.”

He also spoke through Peter in 1st Peter 4:7 saying:

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”

“O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?”
1st Corinthians 15:55

Christ has indeed delivered us from the fear of death (Hebrews 2:15). His expectation is that we will begin to make preparations for our flight to eternity, either by death or by the rapture. Finally, in words of Amos 4:12, I plead with you today: “PREPARE TO MEET YOUR GOD”!
