God saved the life of a 9-year-old boy, through this song. He escaped from his kidnapper, after singing this song continuously for three hours, until his kidnapper got disgusted with the song and let him go unharmed. Praise to the Almighty God and thanks to Hezekiah Walker!

Jesus is coming soon, am I ready is a question I ask myself daily, because it is important that like the wise virgins, I am prepared when Jesus comes. To me being prepared means that I do a daily character check. My duty is to be sure that I know what God is looking for in me. And I believe that all professed Christians should be asking God what do you want me to do today?
God’s may answer, “Worship Me only”:
"Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters." Revelation 14:7.
Worshiping the Creator includes worshiping Him on the day He set aside as a memorial of Creation (the seventh-day Sabbath). That the reference in Revelation 14:7 is to the Sabbath is made clear by the fact that the words "made heaven, and earth, and the sea" were lifted right out of the Sabbath commandment (Exodus 20:11) and used here. Our true roots are found in God alone, who made us in His image in the beginning. Those who do not worship God as Creator, no matter what else they may worship, may never discover their real roots.
To fear God means we should revere God and look upon Him with love, trust, and respect - eager to do His bidding. This keeps us from evil. "By the fear of the Lord men depart from evil." Proverbs 16:6. Solomon, the wise man, also said, "Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man." Ecclesiastes 12:13.
God may also answer: “Give Me glory.” We fulfill this command when we obey, praise, and thank God for His goodness to us. We fulfill this command when we obey, praise, and thank God for His goodness to us. One of the major sins of the last days is un-thankfulness (2 Timothy 3:1, 2).
God may answer: “Be careful what you do, say, see or listen to, because you are being judged. The hour of His judgment is come. This indicates that everyone is accountable to God, and it is a clear statement that the judgment is now in session. This command rejects idolatry of all kinds -including self-worship- and totally repudiates evolution, which denies that God is Creator and Redeemer. (Many books and radio talk shows today overstress self-worth, which leads to self-worship. A Christian's self-worth is in Christ, who makes His children sons and daughters of the King of heaven.) The gospel includes the creation and redemption of the world by the Lord God of heaven.
