Obviously, we agree with the truth on the much we have seen on the things peculiar with our generation, the fact that judgment is determined, the rapture, the great tribulation and the injunction on “Escape for your life”, it then follows that every saved boy or girl should be on his/her toes right now running along with the information and understanding he or she has received. The Lord’s question to him or her, like it was to Lot in that day, is“Hast thou any besides? …” If there be any, He says “bring them out of this place” (Genesis 19:12).
The men who came to Sodom knew the urgency of the judgment declared and the terror of God and that God meant every word He said. They also knew that God never takes pleasure in the death of a sinner and so would always give opportunity to whosoever cares to make amend and return to Him (Ezekiel 18:23, 32; 33:11; 2 Corinthians 5:11; Ezekiel 12:25; Jeremiah 1:12). On this note, they asked Lot if he had any besides. This included wife, children, relations, neighbours, friends, colleagues, and so on. Lot was told to go and tell them of the looming judgment and this he did.
When Jesus came on board, He did same. He went around telling men and women of the kingdom of God and the consequences of missing it (Matthew 4:17; Mark 9:43-48). He sent His disciples to do same (Luke. 9:1-2; 10:1, 8-9; 19:10). The disciples also went everywhere preaching the word (Acts 8:1, 4).
The same assignment has been given to us but now must be carried out with more urgency because it is the last time (1 John 2:18; Hebrews 10:37; 2 Corinthians 5:11, 18-19). Every Christian youth who has understood the very next thing in God’s programme must see this assignment of not just preaching but bringing them out of this place as an unavoidable responsibility much more than Paul saw it (1 Corinthians 9:16; Romans 1:14-16). It is a necessity laid on him. Refusing to attend to this divine assignment or doing it casually or to fulfill an obligation is an offence unto God that attracts eternal punishment (Ezekiel 33:1-9; 3:18-21). The assignment must be carried out with love, compassion, understanding of the looming danger/judgment and serious prayer/intercession for those being ministered to so as to bring them out of this place (danger zone).
As this is done, the Lord will deliver them and you would have delivered your own soul (consider Ezekiel 22:30-31; Exodus 32:30-34).
So, who do you have besides? After reading article, you must go to give them the information of the Lord’s next agenda and how He has provided a way of escape while the opportunity lasts. It is very necessary to present them to the Lord in prayer and after until they come out from the danger.
