The Return of Jesus

If the King of kings is soon returning to establish the Kingdom of God upon this earth, you should be ready for it. You should know how it will affect your business, your economic future, your personal safety and everything around you.

You can know what the signs are that will precede Christ’s coming and watch for them. Why stay in ignorance about the meaning of the events taking place around you? Jesus commands His genuine disciples to watch and to be ready. “Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man” (Luke 21:36).

Your entire life is about to change. Events will unfold soon to destroy the world’s way of life as we have known it.

The Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke each contain an account of Christ teaching His disciples what to watch for before He returns. Luke wrote: “So you, likewise, when you see these things happening, know that the kingdom of God is near. Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things are fulfilled. Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away” (Luke 21:31-33).

Jesus Christ gave a series of signs that must occur before He returns. Evidently, the fulfillment of Christ’s prophecy would happen within the lifetime of one generation once the signs relative to that specific prophecy begin. So Christ is coming back to this earth, but not right away. Not until these signs have occurred! People who go running around mouthing their own ideas and predictions about Christ’s return “tonight” are false prophets. They are not heeding the words of Jesus Christ. The signs listed in Jesus’ words must occur first.

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be. And unless those days were shortened, no flesh would be saved [alive]; but for the elect’s sake [for the sake of God’s repentant, obedient people] those days will be shortened” (Matthew 24:21-22).

We are now approaching that time, and these things are now being revealed. “Many shall be purified, cleansed, and refined [God is examining you and me, testing us to see who is willing to obey His word], but the wicked shall continue to act wickedly. None of the wicked shall understand, but those who are wise shall understand” Daniel 12:10

Be Thankful

1 Thessalonians 5:18

In EVERYTHING give thanks. 

We are to thank God for the PAINFUL THINGS TOO.

Romans 8:28 says ” all things work together for good to them who love the Lord and are the called according to his purpose.

You are saved. You are God’s child.  You Love God and you are seeking his will. ALL THINGS WILL WORK TOGETHER FOR GOOD. 

Phil. 4:6  Be careful for nothing; but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication with THANKSGIVING let your requests be known unto God.

If you are to receive peace in the painful trials you need to thank God for the trial as you make your request of him. Thank him that the trial brought you to the place where you had to call on him. We need to Thank God for Everything.

Jesus promised his followers life more abundant.  This means a life that is FULL and SATISFYING even if the wolf is at the door. 

There are some things that make an abundant life. There is JOY, FAITH, LOVE, VISION.

When you are thankful you bring Joy to God. I believe that GOd rejoices when we are TRULY GRATEFUL and thank him FOR WHAT HE DOES.

When you are thankful you bring Joy to others. When you are thankful JOY COMES INTO YOUR HEART. The giving of thanks has a way of erasing the Gloom of the bad things. When you thank God for everything, you begin to see it from God’s perspective. You see the benefits you gain even from the pain. I AM THANKFUL TODAY for those trials of yesterday.  I JUST WISH SOMEONE HAD TAUGHT ME TO BE THANKFUL  FOR THEM WHEN THEY WERE HAPPENING.

To be Thankful will deepen your love for God and for others. You say, I just don’t feel as much love for God as I used to,”  Start being thankful for all he has done and you will. When you were down and out and he picked you up you were so thankful, you tingled then. TINGLE AGAIN. Count your blessings, THANK GOD.

Look for things to be thankful for and you will find plenty. First start by being thankful today. Everyone has something that they can thank God for. Everyone has something that they can thank somebody for.

Find something to be thankful for in every situation and in everybody. By doing this you will lighten up the world and opening the way for the gospel to be taught to someone.
