JESUS IS COMING SOON
Freelance writer Lupie Riley
Thought: We’ve seen their signs, we’ve heard their voices, THE END OF WORLD is near. The fear mongers are still out there with this corona virus pushing their lies and confusion. The world to millions seems like its sur-real with jobs lost, small businesses hurting on the verge of closing permanently and friction rising in those who have come to the end of their patience with the stay at home ruling.
I talked with my 101-year-old friend and asked her if she could remember anything like this happening in her lifetime. Her answer was NO. How are we as Christians responding to this crisis? Are we anxious and living in fear or are we standing strong in the faith and trusting the Lord to give us the strength and wisdom to do the right thing as we face up to each day?
If you have children or grandchildren their watching you and how you cope with a bad situation. My heart goes out to children who live in homes with alcohol or drug addicted parents. This is the lesson their learning as to how to respond to a crisis and chances are they will grow up to repeat their parent’s way of coping.
The Bible tells us there will be pestilences in the last days and this could be one of those signs that Jesus mentioned in Math 24. The world will not end but it could be the coming end of the age of grace and that door will be closed like God closed the door on the Ark with only eight people safely inside. It could be close to the time when Jesus will call his own out of this world before the seven year judgment comes upon planet Earth. It’s called the rapture or the taking out of the church (believers who make up the body of Christ).
A description of this departure is revealed in the book of Thessalonians. That Ark of safety right now is the person of Jesus. Open the door of your heart and ask him to come into your life today. Receive the gift he offers freely of forgiveness and eternal life in a place called Heaven.
If the world would come to an end like the fear mongers proclaim then the Bible would be a lie. Jesus still has to reign for 1,000 years as king of Kings over the whole world. All these things that are happening are to align events for the great one when Christ is King. Do not be afraid, trust in the Lord and he will fill your mind and heart with his peace and comfort. Maranatha
Prayer: Father God thank you for this promise of eternal life with you in a place called Heaven. Someday soon you will sound that trumpet and we will see you face to face as you call us out and up to live with you forever. Amen
Verse: I Thess. 4:15-17 “I can tell you this directly from the Lord: that we who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet him ahead of those who are in their graves. For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven with a mighty shout and with the soul-stirring cry of the archangel and the great trumpet-call of God. And the believers who are dead will be the first to rise to meet the Lord. Then we who are still alive and remain on the earth will be caught up with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air and remain with him forever. So comfort and encourage each other with this news.”
