This season of life is so strange.

I’m leaving in a few months and I’m wondering what the Lord would have me do in the few months I have left here.

It just happens that I’m teaching about the End Times in two separate places at church, one for Sunday School and two for small group until the very last week I am leaving.

How excited am I? VERY.

If you didn’t know this about my life, I believe the context in which I am going to seminary is that the Lord is also calling me to go and prepare the church to be ready for His return. When I think about His coming and the events surrounding his coming, my heart burns with zeal. It is the very zeal of the Lord for his church. This is what I think about when I think about the next 50 years of my life (of course underneath loving Jesus).

This is what brings me zeal:

The Bible primarily likens Jesus’ coming to a wedding. Jesus is the bridegroom and the church is the bride. Do you know what sucks?

When you are to be wed with someone and the one whom you are to be wedded to doesn’t care to be married with you. This is the state of the church right now in America, and that is the truth. She is adulterous and idolatrous all together.  Flirting with the gods of materialism, self-love, and perversion. Jesus will not be wed to a bride who is not ready.

I, Phillip Chan, will spend my life to make her ready. And by the grace of God I will.
