Do you realize that for as many times as the Bible speaks of the first coming of Christ, it mentions eight times as more, the second coming? For God's word to put such so much importance on the second coming of Christ, how much do we anticipate the second coming?
The signs are all around us that the second coming may happen sooner rather than later. First, Israel is in the homeland. These are Gods people and in His land, Also, the rise of satanism and the occult, the homosexual movement, the degrading and redefining the the home are just a few of the numerous signs of the coming drawing near. God gave us His only son to die on the cross and there is no middle ground, Jesus, the person, is coming back.
There are also so many different purposes of the return, Jesus is going to bring the rewards for the Saints and complete the salvation Jesus will receive the glory that is His, bring light to the things of darkness, judge the world, destroy death just to name a few. Its exciting for Christians to anticipate Jesus reigning and ruling over the world.
So what does all this mean for us? We must be prepared and assured in Jesus' second coming. We ought to love His coming, Look for His coming and not just fold our hands, but occupy and be busy while we are waiting, Are you ready for His coming? Praying for the day? Jesus is coming back, and it could be today!
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:" I Thessalonians 4:16
