Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!

The Call of Wisdom
Wisdom calls aloud outside;
She raises her voice in the open squares. 
She cries out in the chief concourses,
At the openings of the gates in the city
She speaks her words: 
“How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
For scorners delight in their scorning,
And fools hate knowledge.
Turn at my rebuke;
Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
I will make my words known to you.
Because I have called and you refused,
I have stretched out my hand and no one regarded,
Because you disdained all my counsel,
And would have none of my rebuke,
I also will laugh at your calamity;
I will mock when your terror comes,
When your terror comes like a storm,
And your destruction comes like a whirlwind,
When distress and anguish come upon you.
 “Then they will call on me, but I will not answer;
They will seek me diligently, but they will not find me.
Because they hated knowledge
 And did not choose the fear of the Lord,
They would have none of my counsel
And despised my every rebuke.
Therefore they shall eat the fruit of their own way, 
And be filled to the full with their own fancies.
For the turning away of the simple will slay them, 
And the complacency of fools will destroy them;
But whoever listens to me will dwell safely,
And will be secure, without fear of evil.”
Prov 1:20-33

Listen to what God is saying to you. He is asking you to repent, to turn away from your sins, change your mind and turn back to Him. Time is running out fast and there will come a day, sooner than you might think, where that chance to repent will no longer be here for you.

Don't put it off, do it now dear reader.
