BE PREPARED FOR HIS SECOND COMING!
For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be cut up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Every Christian is expected to prepare for Christ’s second coming. Whether we are prepared or not, Jesus will surely come back again. The Bible says in the opening text that for the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be cut up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
Jesus Christ’s second coming is fully guaranteed because God can never lie. God’s Word will surely come to pass no matter how long it will take. Jesus Christ’s second coming is no longer for sin but for the salvation of souls who are prepared. No wonder the Bible says in Hebrews 9:28, “So Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear a second time, apart from sin, for salvation.”
The best way to prepare for Jesus Christ’s second coming is to be a soul-winner. Soul-winning is a very serious business which every Christian is expected to invest in. That is why the Bible says in Luke 15:7, “I say to you that likewise there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine just persons who need no repentance.” Winning souls into God’s kingdom gladdens the Heart of God and make heaven to rejoice.
Daily Tip: Every Christian should get prepared for Jesus Christ’s second coming by engaging in soul-winning which is a very serious business. Shalom!
Golden Text: The Lord is not slack concerning His coming, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that they should perish but that all should come to repentance (2 Peter 3:9).
