Good morning. Jeanette Stark here. It is Monday, March 14, 2022.
Do you believe, truly believe, that Jesus is coming soon??
I recently read something on-line, and I want to share that with you this morning.
“…If we truly believed that Christ was coming soon, it is highly doubtful that we would be living our lives in the same way. We wouldn’t be focused on getting rich, or obtaining material possessions, nor would we be striving for power or fame. We would spend a lot more time loving our friends and family instead of fighting over petty things and holding grudges. If we really believed that it wouldn’t be long until our Savior’s return, our heavenly goal would be our highest priority! But sadly, we go through the motions of “believing.” As Christians, we talk about Jesus’ soon return, and even sing about it, but there doesn’t seem to be any sense of urgency, like we truly believe He “really” is coming! The truth is, Jesus IS coming again!
“The Bible says in John 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” And in 2 Peter 3:10, we’re told, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up.”
“There is no time to waste; we need to prepare our hearts and lives NOW, so we are ready to meet our Lord.
“Matthew 24:36 tells us, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” Make no mistake: Jesus IS coming soon!” – Brenda Walsh Ministries.
The article went on to show, Matthew 25:13, Mark 13:32, John 3:16. Let’s look.
“Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour in which the Son of Man is coming.” Matthew 25:13 NKJV
“But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.” Mark 13:32 NKJV
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 NKJV
I don’t think John 3:16 is complete without verse 17: “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.”
Do you believe Jesus came to this world to save you? Do you believe His word is true? Do you believe He is coming back? Do you believe it will be soon? I do.
My prayer for you today is that you can understand, completely and totally understand, how much Abba loves you. Trust Him. He is good.
Psalm 103:11 “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him. “
