|Time of Christ: Thanking God For The Snooze Alarm
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
I personally have two alarms clocks, my alarm that says it is actually time to arise that is in my head and the second one my cat telling my husband it time for him to be feed and time for my husband to come to bed. The cat alarm is more accurate then my own. It is the snooze alarm of my house. The cat knows our routine to the point if we are not where we should be at a certain time, he comes to find out why. However I can push my cat away and put him on snooze alarm. For after a few minutes he be back to make sure I am up and if I am not he goes through his routine of waking me up. Of course it sounds silly, but in reality once the cat gets me awake and I am sitting on the bed, he will come and lay down right beside me to cuddle as if he needs his morning hug. Do you have God on snooze?
Do have God on snooze alarm. As he woken you up to his word and what is to come in the future? Have you understood his prophesy of destruction and rebuilding to the point you get that if you in good times, you are living with peaches and cream. If you leaving in bad times there is hope for a better tomorrow. Have you put God on snooze alarm, knowing his day of destruction is coming only to say it not yet so why worry about it, let me get back to sinful living, living as if you not dying, or it not time for the alarm of heaven to sound? When the hour of our Lordís returns come are you on snooze, or are you up ready to go to meet Him in the air? When the Lord comes have you been busy making others aware? Or is that snooze alarm not enough of a warning to arise Jesus is coming and it time to meet him in the air? Are you living pushing a snooze alarm, or ready and awake and up a minute before the alarm actually goes off. Let us not be complacent to being awake in our world to the hour it truly is. Let us not be blind to the snooze for it is easier to set then to rise and awake to the call of God in our life.
The snooze alarm is the gentle reminder it is time to prepare. It is time to be awake. It that laying in bed extra ten minutes before rushing around to get things ready for work or school. Yet the snooze alarm is more then a call to rise it a call to rest. It a call to prepare for the actually sound of the trumpet call of Godís return. The snooze alarm is the only warning we can and will receive. It the only wake up call we hopefully will ever need. Are you ready for Christ return? Has your snooze alarm gone off to warn you that it not time, and you must prepare. Do you got one eye half open.
Jesus warns us that rumors of war and wars would come before His coming. That should be enough to understanding the time in which we live in, never knowing if the hour is now or later, but we need to be ready. Do not hit snooze and go back to sleep, hit the snooze only to prepare, for you do not want to miss the alarm by turning off the sound of the alarm. It like the removing of the smoke detector only to have your house burn down a day or two later. We need the alarm, we need the knowledge of Christ call.
Dear Heavenly Father remind me daily of your coming, never allow the warning of your Sonís return to be unspoken in our world. Let the people rejoice that day is coming and help others know the hour might not be yet but Your Son will return. In Jesus precious name, Amen.

Continual Scripture Study for Devotion:1 Thessalonians 4:14-18 KJV
(14) For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.
(15) For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep.
(16) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
(17) Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
(18) Wherefore comfort one another with these words.
