For the Christian, there is no greater promise than that of Jesus returning as King. This is the hope that we cling to and believe in.
Let’s look at God’s Word to see if it gives us a clock on Christ’s returning. In ITimothy 4:1, the Apostle Paul writes to the young pastor, Timothy: “Now the Spirit expressly says that in the latter times some will depart from the Faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons.” NKJV Later in II Timothy 3:1-5, Paul gives Timothy more detailed information: “But know this, in the last days, perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers. Without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of Godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away!” NKJV
Also, read Daniel Chapter 12, Matthew Chapters 24 & 25 and IIPeter chapter 3 for more insight into the time in which we live. The clock in God’s Word tells me that we are in the last days, the latter days!
Are you ready for the return of King Jesus? Are you sure? What should you and I be doing to prepare for His return? First, we must accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior; we must make Him King in our lives.
Second, we need to present the way of Salvation to our family and neighbors. Let’s revisit God’s Word in IPeter 3:15: “But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts, and always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you, with meekness and fear.” In a dark world, we need to bring hope to the hopeless through our witness.
We need to witness even though we get a negative response. We need to witness so those we know have an opportunity to accept Jesus as their Savior. Are you ready? Are those you love ready? The clock is ticking!
MARVELOUS MESSAGE WE BRING; GLORIOUS CAROL WE SING!
WONDERFUL WORD OF THE KING
JESUS IS COMING AGAIN!
COMING AGAIN, COMING AGAIN;
MAYBE MORNING, MAYBE NOON, MAYBE EVENING AND MAYBE SOON!
COMING AGAIN, COMING AGAIN! OH, WHAT A WONDERFUL DAY IT WILL BE! JESUS IS COMING AGAIN! John Peterson
