That’s why we call it inevitable

The first time I heard of the word “inevitable”, it sounded like those impossible, cumbersome vocabulary. Not to mind, I went to a grammar school, so words jumped at me uncontrollably at a age, younger than it was permitted to have a “Bee” spell. But come to think of it, it took nearly a decade after, before I got to know what it meant.


Enough of the Bee spell.

 “Inevitable” means an unavoidable, inescapable, ineluctable situation. It’s certain to happen."

What if your “inevitable” was impromptu? What if the inevitable showed up at your door unannounced? What if it visited you unseeingly kind but fair? What if life caught you off guard at your most vulnerable state? What would you do? What if you called and no one answered at your drowning moment; the philosophy you thought you knew suddenly decided to go numb and life became abstract like it is without its owner? What would you use to make up for it? If what you called your comfortable zone becomes the heating pivot of life, who would you turn to? What would you do, if you suddenly lost all that was the excuse to the inevitable?
Terminal disease could be inevitable. Birth could be inevitable. Losing a job could be inevitable. Many things could be inevitable. But one thing is inevitable; the creator’s call. 
It could come in two forms: Death/Rapture
Death is inevitable. Even the blind knows that. It is certain and comes unannounced.
Christ returning to earth is inevitable. 
Ummm!!! You say how did I know that. 
You could argue with me and ask how I knew; Christ returning to earth is inevitable.
Mark 13: 32, “But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for you know not what hour your Lord does come. But know this that if the manager of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up.”
If Christ returned at your least expected moment, would you be prepared? What if life was shorter than you thought? What would you do, if you realized you had less than a second to breathe, if life visited inevitably unannounced? You'd promised to catch up with your dear loved that afternoon, suddenly life caught up and you could did not make it for half an hour more, what would be you lot.  Hell or Heaven.
I am harsh. Yes! Blunt? Yes. 
When the music start, your body won't deny the inevitable; it will have to dance to it.
I am speaking to the likes of those, who thought they’ve got it fashioned out; to those who’ve limited God to a number, an image, an idea, an opinion, or a research. Do not forget that all you are is just a breath. You shall pass, sometimes, one day. I’m speaking in words to you who chose to listen to a limiting father, mother or friend who will be long gone in a minute.
As Moses pleaded, “See, I set before you today life and prosperity, death and destruction. For I command you today to love the LORD your God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commands, decrees and laws; then you will live and increase, and the LORD your God will bless you in the land you are entering to possess. But if your heart turns away and you are not obedient, and if you are drawn away to bow down to other gods and worship them, 18 I declare to you this day that you will certainly be destroyed (Deut. 30:15-18)”.
As Paul said, "For if you live according to the sinful nature, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the misdeeds of the body, you will live (Rom. 8:13)".

In summary, a word for the wise, when well taken becomes wholesome
