Being prepared. As Jesus talked about the kingdom of God, He told the people that you can’t see the kingdom with your eyes. He said as the lightning strikes and lights the sky, so will His returning be. It will come upon man suddenly. Jesus said prepare yourselves against that day. He said his followers will know Him. Because we will look like Him. How we prepare ourselves is by seeking the kingdom and His righteousness. As we learn from and about God, we will know Him. And the only way of entering into heaven is by knowing Jesus and Him crucified. This is the Reality of Christianity.
