He’s Coming…Again! Millions around the world have already ushered in this year’s Christmas Season. All types of people are busy with traditional shopping, decorating, trimming the tree, wrapping gifts and packages, cooking and baking, and some making traveling plans. But, let me ask you this most important question. Are you prepared and making plans for the Second Return of Jesus Christ?
I’m afraid that we celebrate and make plans for celebrating Christmas Day each year with little thought that He’s Coming Again! This time not as a little babe born in Bethlehem of Judea but as Lord of Lords and King of Kings! Amen.
As we celebrate the earthly birth of Jesus Christ over two thousand years ago, we need to be reminded to prepare within our hearts, minds, and lives for His second future coming…Actually, even more so!
Yes; we MUST first believe in His first coming as a babe in a manger born unto the virgin, Mary. Yes; we must believe in his sinless life. Yes; we must believe in the Cross of Calvary where he bled and died for our sins. Yes; we must believe in His total bodily Resurrection from the tomb. And; Yes….we must believe He is Coming Again to take his Bride, the church (born-again believers in Christ Jesus) to live forever and ever with Him in Heaven! His second coming is as assured as his first!! For his first coming made His second coming possible!!
What type of preparation do we need to believe? Faith (Hebrews 11:1) By faith and through faith…we must first believe that He is who He says He is…God’s own Son (John 3:16). We must believe that He is God manifested in the flesh (John 1:14). And, We must believe that the Word of God (all sixty-six books of the Bible) are the inspired and inerrant Words of God. By Faith we receive God’s Love through His Son, Jesus (Romans 10)….And, by Faith we live out our daily lives according to His Words.
My friend, are you ready for His Second Coming? Oh, I hope so. I pray so. As you continue with your plans for a Happy and Merry Christmas this year…please make plans in your heart to make “ready” for His second coming in a twinkling of an eye! He’s Coming Again! (I Thessalonians 4:14-18).
Remember, God Loves You!
