    Matthew 7:21-23

    Not everyone who says to Me, "Lord, Lord," shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me in that day, "Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?"

    And then I will declare to them, "I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness."

    Obsession

    But you, go your way till the end; for you shall rest, and will arise to your inheritance at the end of the days.

    Perfumes in the 1980s became stronger than those of earlier times as designers tried to satisfy the demands of sensory-oriented Yuppies. It began with "Giorgio" by Giorgio of Beverly Hills. Then Christian Dior introduced "Poison," which had such a strong floral fragrance that some New York restaurants banned it. Paris-based Guerlain introduced its sandalwood-rich "Samsara;" and in 1985, Calvin Klein debuted his "Obsession."

    The word "obsession" often has a negative connotation, implying neurotic preoccupation; but it's an appropriate word for the way many people live. We're obsessed with pleasure, with sports, with hobbies, with goals, with entertainment.


    Some believers grow obsessed with current trends, biblical prophecy, and the signs of the times. A healthy interest in those subjects is good, but God doesn't want us to be consumed by them. He told Daniel to go away and occupy himself with the work while awaiting the fulfillment of prophecy. That's what we're to do as well. Study the prophecies of the Last Days, but don't neglect the work of today.

    Bible prophecy helps us to better understand the future and realize the urgent need to spread the Gospel. It motivates us to personal purity and gives us hope in a hopeless age.
