Seven Nights of Doom – Don’t Miss the Signs . . .

In my sometimes crazily fast-paced life, there is much that misses my attention as I find myself scurrying from one amazing ministry opportunity to another. It’s not just how busy I can sometimes find myself. It’s that I have an incredible radar for what matters most to me – the things of the Lord and His leading that someone, somewhere, at some time, is in need to whom I can minister. Suffice it to say so very much passes right by me. I am known to be incredibly intense and incredibly driven when it comes to the Lord and my ministry work. How much I miss on a daily basis that other people see, I cannot even imagine. What I tend to miss given my driven nature and how full my plate so often is now are the details of life. And because I have willingly sacrificed having a social life so that I can be available 24-7 to the Lord and to the work to which He has called me, I often have no idea whatsoever of the social and entertainment happenings of the world around me. So it came as a bit of a surprise to me when I noticed a little sign along the side of the road that I would not have ordinarily even noticed was there. The sign was plain and clear. No details. Just four words. SEVEN NIGHTS OF DOOM.

Don’t Miss the SIGNS OF THE TIMES . . . 

And do you know something? The sign not only catch my eye. It caught my heart. Not because I can only imagine some person, some group, some organization, someone out there had dreamed up this Halloween celebration of sorts, or perhaps theater presentation, or haunted house, or who knows what it might have been as Halloween was just around the corner. The reason  the sign caught my heart is because of my indescribable burden for the dire state of this world and for how many people are on the highway to hell because they have not heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ, or because they have heard the Gospel of Jesus Christ and have refused to repent from their sins and to confess Him as Lord and believe God raised Him from the dead. So what does any of this have to do with Seven Nights of Doom anyway, you may wonder.


Because as I plunge for the first time ever deep into a study of what the Bible so clearly explains is on its way when it comes to the end of the world as we know it and the indescribably horrific time of tribulation for those who have not repented and placed their faith in Christ and for the eternity in hell where all those who are not followers of Christ are headed, I can’t help but wonder this. SEVEN NIGHTS OF DOOM are absolutely totally thoroughly undeniably astoundingly indescribably NOTHING when compared with the future so many people on this planet right now are facing because of their refusal to repent of their wickedness and to submit themselves to living according to the ways of the Lord as so clearly proclaimed in the Bible.

Furthermore, the sign caught my eyes – and my heart – because I am shocked, and deeply grieved, at how socially acceptable it is for our society to give glory to haunted houses, and costumes, and pranks and all manner of darkness all in the matter of fun and games, while it is more unacceptable by the day it seems to tell the world about the reality of HELL which is for real and that faith in Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to be forgiven and receive the promise of eternity in heaven with God. Yes, friends, hell is for real.

SEVEN DAYS OF DOOM, which I have since discovered to be a haunted house made available for the local public to benefit a local organization, will more than likely draw a nice-sized crowd before its doors are closed as Halloween comes and goes.

But what remains is this. Not seven nights of doom. But an eternity in hell for those who do not fall to their knees in repentance for their sins and believe that Jesus died on the cross for us so we may be forgiven our sins and live the righteous lives God has called us to live as He prepares believers in Christ to spend eternity with God our Creator.

The SEVEN NIGHTS OF DOOM sign will no doubt be taken down as soon as the so-called holiday is over.

But what will remain for those who are paying attention are the SIGNS OF OUR TIMES – that make it abundantly clear the world is drawing to a close and that now is the time of salvation for those who want to be assured that both their present and their future shall be with the Lord God almighty.

Rom 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
