Jesus is coming soon
Morning Night or Noon
He’s on His way
Are you ready? Do you even believe our Lord is on His way to catch up His own in the air? Let’s look at why we should be looking for our Lord to burst on to the scene at any moment.
1. Matt. 24: 27 For as the lightning comes out of the east, and shines even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
2. Matt. 24: 29 Immediately after the trouble of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light; and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
Matt. 24: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven; and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Matt. 24: 31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
3. Matt. 24: 36 But of that day and hour knows no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
Matt. 24: 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall the coming of the Son of man
Matt. 24: 42 “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.
So here we see our Lord is telling us the signs to look for, and we see that just as our Lord came to collect His elect then, He is coming to gather His elect now. He is telling us that the conditions of the people on earth today will be the same as the conditions of the people of that time were. And we know the conditions of the people are more than right for the return of our Lord. Hatred, gossip, lying, greed, fornication, to name a few, but above all the luke warm, lip service at best that is world wide, the growing disdain for our Lord, the open denial of Jesus, ridicule, persecution and oppression of the followers of our Lord Jesus Christ. Even in countries with supposed freedom of religion those who are trying to warn of Jesus return are laughed at, scorned, and ridiculed. The people who profess to be “Christians” leave out important truths of Jesus words, and twist other truths to suit their own agenda, even going so far as to say there is no hell. They say our Lord is a loving God and would not send His children to a place of eternal torment. He loves everyone. They tell everyone that will listen that “I’m ok, you’re ok, we are all ok”.
This teaching does NOT line up with God’s Holy Word!
Read Matt. 7: 15-20
15 BEWARE OF FALSE PROPHETS, WHICH COME TO YOU IN SHEEP’S CLOTHING, BUT INWARDLY THEY ARE RAVENING WOLVES.
Jeremiah 50:6 My people have been lost sheep. Their shepherds have led them astray; They have turned them away on the mountains. They have gone from mountain to hill; They have forgotten their resting place.
John 10: 12 “But a hireling, he who is not the shepherd, one who does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf catches the sheep and scatters them.
There are many hirelings in the world today. Can you see them by what they preach? Our Lord says: Study to show yourself approved. He does not say go sit on a church pew, without even taking your sword (bible) with you, and just listen to whatever comes out of the pulpit. How can you know if the word you are hearing is the complete truth if you do not read God’s word and study?
II Timothy 2: 15 says: Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
The King James version says: Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
This is saying that each and everyone of us is to study God’s word, know what God is telling us, and that each one of us is to go out sharing the gospel of Christ in word and by our actions. We are to live the word not just speak it. We are to stay on watch! Watching for our Lord, for He is coming, and He is coming very soon. He says we will know the season but not the day or hour. This is the season.
Lord Jesus help us to be ready. Help us to tell everyone your word, show everyone your word by the way we live. You have said Lord that if we act like the world how will they know we are different, how will they know we are set aside and sanctified for you? Use us Lord for your glory. Thank you Lord, in Jesus name, amen and amen so be it.
