The great lesson that Jesus teaches us about His coming is that we are not to know the time. Jesus will return one day, and that day could be today. Some have tried to teach this or that or theother must happen first then the Lord will return. Some say there must be one great last world-wide revival, some that the Temple in Jerusalem must be rebuilt, or that Russia must do something against Israel, and so on. Christ’s coming is imminent, a powerful and comforting certainty.
The early disciples expected His return in their day, so we have certainly as much, if not more, reason to expect Him today.This is our incentive for holy living, for service to others, and the sharing of our faith (the Gospel) with anyone. In Luke 12:45,46 Jesus gives us a warning; “45 But and if that servant say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; and shall begin to beat the menservants and maidens, and to eat and drink, and to be drunken; 46 the lord of that servant will come in a day when he looketh not for him, and at an hour when he is not aware, and will cut him insunder, and will appoint him his portion with the unbelievers.”
Are there things that we would want to do before He comes? Are there things that we have done that we would want to make right? John, in his first letter, shows us how this blessed hope should stir our lives to be lived for the Lord (I John 3:3) “And every man that hath this hope in him purifieth himself even as he is pure.”
There was a story about a caretaker of a large estate in Italy.The estate was owned by an extremely wealthy man who owned manydwellings, and lived in another country. He seldom visited thisestate. The caretaker kept the grounds beautifully, and everythingwas immaculate. Someone visiting the area heard of this beautiful place and howit was kept though the owner hardly ever came. He went in amazement to speak to this man. He asked him how often the owner came. The man said that the owner had come twice in the past 10 years.The visitor asked, “Why do you work so hard, every day, and keep everything so perfect when he may not come again for years?” The humble man said, “He may come today.”
We are the stewards of everything the Lord has given to our care. We are the messengers to everyone we come in contact with. We serve Our Lord in faith that He is coming for us, that we may be withHim forever.Jesus calls upon us today: “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.” (Matthew 24:42.)
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
Are you ready?
If you would like to know our Lord & Savious Jesus and give your life to him that you may partake of him or if you have been in christ but lost your way and want to come back and make your way right, I would like you to say this prayer. For it is written in Romans 10:9-10. “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
“Dear God in heaven, I come to you in the name of Jesus. I acknowledge to You that I am a sinner, and I am sorry for my sins and the life that I have lived; I need your forgiveness.
I believe that your only begotten Son Jesus Christ shed His precious blood on the cross at Calvary and died for my sins, and I am now willing to turn from my sin.
You said in Your Holy Word, Romans 10:9 that if we confess the Lord our God and believe in our hearts that God raised Jesus from the dead, we shall be saved.
Right now I confess Jesus as the Lord of my soul. With my heart, I believe that God raised Jesus from the dead. This very moment I accept Jesus Christ as my own personal Savior and according to His Word, right now I am saved.
Thank you Jesus for your unlimited grace which has saved me from my sins. I thank you Jesus that your grace never leads to license, but rather it always leads to repentance. Therefore Lord Jesus transform my life so that I may bring glory and honor to you alone and not to myself. Thank you Jesus for dying for me and giving me eternal life.” Amen!
If you just said this prayer and you meant it with all your heart and you have repented for your sins, we believe that you just got saved and are born again. What’s next?” First of all you need to get into a bible-based church, and study God’s Word and renew your mind, leaving those things, behaviours and attitudes and focus on Jesus the author and finisher of your faith.
