. . . and the Lamb shall overcome them: for He is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with Him are called, and chosen, and faithful. Revelation 17:14
The Second Coming of Jesus will be the greatest event of all ages. It’s one of the grand theological truths taught from Genesis to Revelation.
• The New Birth is vitally important, but it’s mentioned only 9 times in the New Testament.
• Baptism is vitally important, but it’s mentioned only 20 times in the New Testament.
• Repentance, important and required, is mentioned only 70 times in the Bible.
• But the return of the Lord Jesus Christ is mentioned at least 380 times!
One out of every 25 verses points with an eager finger to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We’re living in the time where Jesus could come at any moment. Some glorious morning, all will be peace when Jesus comes again.
How are you getting ready for His Second Coming? What if He came this very hour? Is your heart prepared? Are you ready? Listen to some of the last words Paul wrote before his execution: “I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing” (2 Timothy 4:7-8). Do you love the thought of His appearing?
