Behold, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed-in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.
For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52 NKJV
Most Christians believe the return of Jesus Christ for His church is imminent. It could happen any time. It would be great if Jesus returned right before my bills need to be paid. He could return right before my rent is due.
I don’t mean to make light of Jesus’ return. But you know what? That is the hope we have. Life on planet earth is complicated. It is difficult. It becomes more expensive to live all the time.
Wars and rumors of wars abound. Terrorists strike without warning. Cold hard hearts use and abuse innocence to feed their lust. The earth shakes, catastrophic winds blow, waters rise and people are left in the dark without basic needs. What are we to do?
The things that happen in this world can cause great fear. God tells us not to be fearful. Jesus tells us not to worry about what we will wear or eat or where we will live because He knows we can worry about those things.
When Jesus returns the cares of this world will be long forgotten. We will not be in heaven wondering if we have enough money for retirement. We will not be concerned with anything other than serving God and worshiping Him in the beauty of holiness!
We will worship God and serve Him as perfected people in eternity. Our worship of Almighty God will be magnified by our perfection. We will worship Him in spirit and truth without distraction or opposition.
I love to worship God. He is worthy of praise honor and glory. I do not have a very good singing voice today. In heaven I will sing like an angel. So will you!
Our heavenly Father wants us to look forward with great anticipation to the return of Jesus Christ. He is not just coming back to the earth. He is coming to take you to His Father’s house. Jesus is coming back so you can live with Him because He loves you!
Laugh out loud. Rejoice and celebrate. Jesus is coming soon. The time of the Lord’s return draws closer and closer every day!
Therefore, my beloved brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. Vs 58
God will give you victory over sin and death through Jesus Christ. Be ready for it!
