I’ve heard many say that in the end times, that they will only share what they have stored up with fellow Christian brothers & sisters. Oh really!
Let’s say that an E.M.P. attack has occurred and you have been preparing for a disaster for quite sometime. Banks have been shut down, gas pumps no longer work and grocery stores have been emptied out.
What are you going to do if a neighbor comes by asking for help? Are you going to turn him or her away?
Would you want a neighbor to turn you away? Would Jesus turn anyone away? Do you think it is appropriate to greet someone in need with a weapon?
I’m not talking about people coming to your doorstep for the purpose of stealing or causing harm.
We need to remain humble in obedience to the Lord. The Lord may send people your way when things get really bad. People coming to you may not be saved, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get into prayer with them and also offer food. We need to step into faith in all areas and also trust the Lord for provisions when we are down to our last bit of rice.
How would you like it if the Lord told you “Depart from me!”, because you chose to not help those he sent to you?
40 And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’
41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
42 For I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me no drink,
43 I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and you did not visit me.’
44 Then they also will answer, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison, and did not minister to you?’
45 Then he will answer them, saying, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.’
46 And these will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.”
