To be prepare when Jesus returns
Mt. 25:13 “Watch therefore; for ye know neither the day now the hour wherein the Son of the man cometh.”
2 Co. 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to that he hath done, whether it be good or bad.”
Rise Dead Man Rise is a game that is played in the fall of the year when dry leaves are plentiful, or a blanket or sand could be used at other times.
This game is suitable for three or more players. One person is chosen to be the “dead man.” This player then lays on the ground and is covered be leaves or a blanket. The other players walk around the person chanting, “Rise dead man rise!” When the “dead man” suddenly rise, the other players run and try not to get caught. When a player is caught, that person is then “it.” The game can be played over and over again, but let’s think about a spiritual lesson.
There are a few spiritual meanings for this game, but let’s focus on one. The “”dead man” represents time. You don’t know when Jesus will return, so we must watch and be ready. The players who run, represent the many who will not want to receive God’s judgment, and the player that is caught means you won’t be able to escape.
We must be prepared for Jesus’ return be living a life that is pleasing to Him. The Bible teaches us the things we must know and do to make it into Heaven. We must do good and live a life that is pleasing to God. The Bible also tells of the many events that will take place right before He comes. When we see these things, we know the time is near. So watch and be ready.
