While the world waits for Christmas, a day that celebrates the first coming of Jesus, Christians wait for His second coming.
Jesus told what it would be like. It will come after terrible times when the sun or moon will not shine. The stars will fall from the sky and the celestial powers will be shaken.
He said, "The the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the peoples of the earth will mourn; and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. He will send out His angels with a loud trumpet, and they will gather His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other" Matthew 24:30-31.
Jesus warned about false Messiahs, men who will say they are Jesus. But they will not be able to come on the clouds with the angels. Don't be fooled.
Think About It
Why do you think the peoples of the earth will be sad? The believers will rejoice. Only those who chose not to love Jesus will be sad. They will know it's too late to change their mind.
Pray About It
Dear Lord Jesus, we know you are not slow in coming, but that you want all to come to love you. May it be so. May none perish. To your glory and honor. Lord God Almighty who was and is and is to come. Amen.
