Apocalypse – an event involving destruction or damage on an awesome or catastrophic scale.

In this tornado called our world, we see the spinning increasing to a frantic pace for those who don’t have Jesus and for those who do.  The whole Zombie thing has been a central theme for many people where you have an undead person with no mind going about feeding on non zombies without regard for them and thus turning them into zombies.  Those people turn into zombies and begin their aimless, nightmarish walk to find others to feed on.   Scripture has warned of this apocalypse and it seems like the zombies are turning out, but not flesh eating zombies.  They are faith eating zombies.  These zombies feed on the fear of those who don’t know Jesus and that feeding turns those people into zombies also.  If you watch the latest news  you can spot the zombies who are leading the pack and their wanton, disregard for God has taken their undead condition and ramped it up to the ludicrous level.  When I say undead, I actually mean the stage of spiritual deadness that is evident by their rejection of Jesus.  Oh they are dead, but they don’t know it, so they wander around aimlessly looking for whom they may infect with the deadness.  They are the walking dead.  Only through a saving relationship with Jesus Christ can a person really find true life and here is how.

Admit you are sinner – Romans 3:23  For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.  ALL IS ALL.

Believe in Jesus  – Romans 5:8  But God demonstrates His love for us in this: while we were still sinners Christ died for us.  Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Confess your sins and believe – Romans 10:9-10  That if you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raise Him from the dead, you will be saved; for with the heart a person believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth he confesses, resulting in salvation.

Faith is the key – Ephesians 2:8-9 For by grace you have been saved through faithful and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Now when you do that, heart change happens, and you are no longer a zombie, but a living person with real life.

A friend of mine watching the latest news asked me what I saw in all of that, to which I replied, “I see dead people!”  He said, “How so.”  To which I also replied, “Without Jesus we are all zombies; dead, but not realizing it.  They are aimlessly wandering around trying to find life, but not succeeding, so those zombies feed on those who have life by trying to infect them with their deadness and make them zombies.”  How do I know?  I used to be a zombie.

With this condition in our world, we see that we definitely are in a destructive state.  The condition will only worsen if we, as Christians, do not share that life with others to replace their deadness with life.  And specifically the life of Christ when they receive Him.  The scriptures above tell the story of coming to know Jesus and that message is the key to eternal life in heaven and the abundant life here on earth.  In John 10:10 Jesus put it out there very plainly when he said  “the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy (zombie condition); I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly (real life).  The message hasn’t changed.  We just haven’t shared it enough to overcome the zombies and bring them to life.

Just remember this pure truth.  There is no other way but Jesus.  Acts 4:12 says it clearly, “And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.”

If you found out by reading this you are a zombie, you don’t have to stay a zombie.  Accept Jesus and you will have found  “the cure.”  If you have been lured into hanging with zombies, it is time to change your allegiance back to Jesus and repent.  If you have been fighting zombies and are tired, don’t despair.  Keep fighting the good fight and God will sustain you.  Ephesians 6:12 says it well, “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”  Think about that the next time you choose a movie or TV show to watch.  When your eyes are opened everything changes.

JESUS IS THE ONLY  WAY TO HEAVEN AND FATHER GOD IS THE GREAT I AM.  NO ONE ELSE!!  Sound the alarm and brush the dust off your sword (Bible).  Time to go to battle.

The Pilgrimage continues….
