“Behold, He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of Him. Even so. Amen.”
‘All of creation, all of the earth, make straight a highway, a path for the Lord. Jesus is coming soon.
Call back the sinner, wake up the saint, let
every nation shout of Your fame, Jesus is coming soon.
Like a bride waiting for her groom, we’ll be a Church ready for You.
Every heart longing for our King, we sing “even so come”, Lord Jesus, come, even so come, Lord Jesus, come.
There will be justice, all will be new, Your Name forever, faithful and true, Jesus is coming soon.
So we wait, we wait for You.
God, we wait, You’re coming soon!
Even so come
Lord Jesus, come
Even so come
Lord Jesus, come.’
(Chris Tomlin-Jason Ingram-Jess Cates)
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet, for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed…..
“But watch yourselves lest your hearts be weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly like a trap.…for it will come upon all who dwell on the face of the whole earth, but stay awake at all times, praying that you may have strength to escape all these things that are going to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”…..
For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night…
We who are His redeemed church are waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ,
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.
Then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord.”….
“I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.”
I don’t know about you, but I’m going to be looking a little more attentively for the return of the Lord, I do not want to miss out.
I love what Pastor Chuck Smith’s timely prayer as he spoke, may it also cause us to examine our hearts and invite Jesus to inspect and clear away anything that could hinder our eternal perspective, at the center being that Jesus is coming back soon, are you ready?
“Oh God, give us ears to hear what the Spirit is saying to the church. May we, O God, listen to what You would say to us. Search us, O Lord, know our hearts, try us, O God, know our thoughts, if there is a way of unrighteousness, if there is a way of deceitfulness, God help us that we would not deceive ourselves, and be blind to the truth. Lord, if there is something wrong in what we are doing, how we are doing it, let your Spirit reveal to our hearts. God we don’t want to go on living in a lie or a fallacy. We long to know Your truth. Thy Word is truth. Teach us Thy Word that we might in its precepts and live in its light. In Jesus” Name, Amen. “
