Jesus Is Coming Again
December 12, 2014
Before Jesus returned to Heaven He promised in John 14:2-3 - “I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.”
When Christ ascended into Heaven, a cloud received Him out of the sight of the disciples. In Acts 1:11 - Two angels said: “You men of Galilee, why stand you gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as you have seen Him go into heaven.”
My friend, Christ’s return will be a bodily, literal return, not just a spiritual coming as when He comes into the hearts of persons who receive Him, or when He comes to take believers to Heaven when they die. At His first coming as a babe in Bethlehem, He came to be the Savior for the souls of sinners. But His second coming will be to save the bodies of believers when they will be resurrected to be like His glorious body.
My friend, Jesus is waiting until the last souls will be saved before He will return in the sky to take believers to be with Him. What are you doing with your time, talents, and treasures? Are you spending them only for selfish pursuits and gains? From now own, let your treasure be in heaven waiting because riches are not found on earth. Turn to God in confession and repentance and begin again to make Him absolutely first in your life.
