  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.

  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

    So always be ready,
    because you don’t know the day your Lord will come
    Matthew 24:42

    We prepare for many things – careers, marriages, schooling –
    but are we prepared to meet God?
    [Billy Graham]
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?
  2. Matt5

    Matt5 Summary first, then the detail.

    Most Christians aren't prepared for anything. Plus, we don't even know what that means. Although, we can guess that it is more than nothing. Reading the Bible is not going to be enough.

    We'll know Jesus is coming 42 months out, according to Revelation. It's not going to be a mystery.

    Matthew 25 suggests double trouble with the return of Jesus:

    1. The parable of the talents.
    2. The wise and foolish virgins.

    In the parable of the talents, the one person who buries his talent gets tossed into outer darkness. So, make a wrong decision and suffer the consequences.

    In the wise and foolish virgins, half the virgins make a bad decision and suffer the consequences.

    There seems to be substantial consequences for failure to be ready, whatever that means.
