BEHOLD, HE COMETH
Memorise: Behold, he cometh with clouds, and every eye shall see him, and they also pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen. Revelation 1:7
Read: Acts 1:9-11
Bible in one year: 2 Chronicles 32-33
Hymn 7: Great Is Thy Faithfulness
Prayer Point: Father, please prepare me for the second coming of Your Son my Saviour, through the Holy Spirit. Amen.
The second coming of Jesus Christ has become a controversial issue in recent times. While some people argue that Jesus Christ will not come again, others say He has come secretly and has taken His position in the Church. Nothing could be further from the truth!
Jesus Christ will come again and when He does, all eyes shall see Him. Many verses of Scripture support the certainty of His second coming – a classic example being today’s Bible reading. It confirms many truths about today’s discussion. Jesus went into heaven publicly in full view of His disciples and there were angels who assured them He would return in like manner. It is therefore unwise to accept the teaching that Christ will not come again or that He has come secretly.
He will return with clouds and every eye, including those of the people who crucified Him, shall see. Their shame shall be unimaginable. Revelation 1:7 says the kindred of the earth shall wail. Why? It is because they refused to repent of their sins and Jesus shall come to judge them according to their works (Revelation 6:1,15).
“For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?” Revelation 6:17
Who shall be able to stand? Only those who have accepted the Lamb who would be the Judge, as their personal Lord and Saviour shall be able to stand. Only those who have confessed their sins, accepted the love of God as demonstrated in the gift of His only begotten Son shall be able to stand (John 3:16-18).
Beloved, Jesus is coming sooner than we may expect. Are you prepared for Him? Remember, He is not coming as a Lamb again but as the Righteous Judge. Repent and be transformed into righteousness if you are yet to do so. lf you have already accepted Him as your Lord and Saviour, ask for the grace to hold on faithfully to the end.
