PREPARING THE NATIONS FOR HIS RETURN

PREPARING THE NATIONS
FOR HIS RETURN
– Pastor Chris

Friday, April 15, 2022

Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book (Revelation 22:7).

In Matthew 28:19-20, the Master instructed, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations… Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” The Lord Jesus gave us a message. It’s the message of salvation for the whole world, which He accomplished in His death and resurrection.

We’re to preach this message until He returns as He promised. Because the time of His return is nearer than ever, we must preach the Gospel now with greater fervency and urgency than ever before. This isn’t religion; it’s about Jesus Christ and His living message: that He came to die for all men, and that God raised Him from the dead that we may have eternal life and come into fellowship with God; and that He’s coming back for all who believe in Him.

He gave us the signs that’ll herald His coming, and we’re seeing many of those things happening in our world today. There isn’t that much time left. That’s why we’re preaching and calling every man to repentance: “Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus” (Colossians 1:28).

The Bible gives us an interesting description of His coming. 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 says, “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” Can you see why you should be prepared by living for Him, every day?

Knowing that the coming of the Lord is closer than ever, take the admonition in Jude 1:4 to heart, living circumspectly, purposefully, worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise: “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.”

Blessed be God for His unfathomable grace, wisdom and mercy, lavished upon His Church to effectively proclaim the Gospel and establish His righteousness in all the earth in these last days! This Easter, preach the Gospel like never before. Turn many from darkness and damnation into the glorious liberty of the sons of God. Hallelujah!
