どうする? Then, what shall I do?

 本としては、今はChuck Smithの"Final Act"というのを読んでいます。
 でも、その学びをしてみようとうきっかけ、トリガーを引いたのは友人から借りた、Joel Rosengerg/Skip Heitzigの"Epicenter"というDVDでした。見たことある人はいるでしょうか?

 先日CCCostaMesaのBrian Brodersenのメッセージを聞いていました。彼は、携挙について説明した後、「では、これらのことを学んだ後の、適応は何でしょう」と言い「このことを知った上で、この危機感をもって福音を人に伝え、神との関係を正しく保とうではありませんか。」と言いました。
”あなたがたは、今がどのような時か知っているのですから、このように行いなさい。・・・・・私たちが信じた時よりも、今は救いが私たちもっと近づいているのです。・・・・・・・・昼間らしい、正しい生き方をしようではありませんか。主イエス・キリストを着なさい。肉の欲のとめに心を用いてはいけません。” ローマ13:11-14
Lately, I have been studying about "Last Days" such as the Rapture, the Tribulation....etc.
The book I have been reading is "Final Act" by Chuck Smith which is awesome.
But, what really got me into this or motivated me was the one DVD called "Epicenter" by Joel Rosenberg / Skip Heitzig. This DVD explains what is happening in Jerusalem, which is the center of Israel, which is center of the world by showing interviews of many people such as Calvary Pastors, Bible scholars and Middle-East specialists even the present President of Israel, Netanyahu . It is really EPICENTER of this not only present, from long time before, the world.
I watched this DVD. And whole time I was watching, I was like " Oh my Gosh!!! It is happening!!!", "That is so crazy!!". It made such impact on me.

So now, what I am to do after watching it??
The other day, I was listening the message by Brian Brodersen on the Rapture.
He explained many things concerning the Rapture. At the end of the message, he said, "What then, shall we do after knowing these scriptural facts?", "We are to get the gospel out to people!".
I was so challenged!!
"Am I doing right things with knowing those facts?"
" What does God want me to do during and after the study?"

"And do this, understanding the present time. The hour has come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. 12The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. 13Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy. 14Rather, clothe yourselves with the Lord Jesus Christ, and do not think about how to gratify the desires of the sinful nature." Romans 13:11-14
