Like many of you, I’ve been watching with horror the devastation of the earthquake, tsunami and now nuclear plant explosion wracking Japan over the weekend. In many ways, Tokyo is like a second home for me. I’ve spent many days there over the past 12 years, and some of my closest friends live there. While all of my friends are safe and accounted for, thousands of others are not. As I read the articles and watch the videos, I feel as if the apocalypse is unfolding before my eyes.
We often wonder what will happen in “the last days” and long for Christ to return and set everything right. The reality is that the end came for hundreds if not thousands of Japanese this weekend. Sadly fewer than 2 out of 100 who lost their lives will join us in Heaven. Most who died entered eternity without Christ.
Our job is far from over. Pray for Japan.
