Many of my churchy and Christian friends have mentioned that transitioning to a cashless society is just another sign of the end times. I don’t know if it is or not. While I have read the book of Revelations, I am by no means an expert in what will happen in the end times. I can tell you more about Esther than I can tell you about Eschatology. I can’t even tell you what I’m doing for the rest of today, let alone what happens at the end of all things.
I don’t know if any of these people declaring that we are in the End Times, have the gift of prophecy. But all of us have the words of the Old Testament prophets at our finger tips.
Here is what a few of them have to say:
“Return to me and I will return to you”, says the Lord – Malachi 3:7b
|“He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God” – Micah 6:8
Even now”, declares the Lord, “return to me with all your heart, with fasting and weeping and mourning.” – Joel 2:12
Jesus himself said “Don’t worry about tomorrow. Each day has enough trouble of it’s own.”
My suggestion is that today you focus on the things that you can control. Repent if you need to. (And we all need to.) Love your neighbor and mind the business God gave you.
Here’s what I know. I need to number my own days. I don’t need to know when the Lord will crack the sky. I just need to be ready when he does. We don’t know the day, nor the hour, but we don’t want to be caught with our work undone.
