It has been quit some time since I posted last. A lot has been happening. The world is spinning, taxes are now past due (!) and there is a new “pandemic” known, interestingly enough, as the swine flu. In my life I have outlined the Book of Deuteronomy (fun, but tedious), caught up on a lot of sleep, and done very little writing. That last mention is actually a really good thing… I find writing extremely therapeutic… therefore, no writing = not need for therapy. Sort of.
But here is something that has not happened yet that all of Creation is yearning for:
THE SECOND COMING OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.
Flu… economy… depression… writer’s block… all of these and more will be distant memories when He comes back for His church. Listen to the words of the Apostle John:
He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon.”
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of the Lord Jesus be with God’s people. Amen.
Revelation 22:20 - 21
What is amazing this is that the Bible ends with an invitation to come to Christ. In the Book of the Revelation, John has outlined the horror that is awaking those who reject Christ. And yet, these things are all written in the future tense and have yet to happen in the our lifetime. The Book of the Revelation and therefore the Bible as a whole ends with an invitation to come to Christ. AMEN!
Yesterday I had a great and unique privilege of preaching two memorial services. I was fortunate to be speaking in front of a crowd of Christians. They do not fear death… and rightfully so. Jesus has conquered the grave. And yet we await His coming for us.
Have you told someone of the Lord’s saving grace today?
