The King is Coming!
Luke 21:25-28 tells us that when the time approaches for Jesus the Christ to return to planet earth, there will be signs in the sun, the moon and the stars. Nations will be in distress and perplexed by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will faint from fear of what is coming as the powers of the heavens are shaken.
No one on earth or in heaven knows the year, the day or the hour of Jesus’ return, except Father God. However, if we listen and look attentively, we can hear the earth groaning for its redemption and see the world stage becoming prepared. The rapidly increasing extreme weather patterns, threats of nuclear war, tsunamis, and earthquakes are evidence.
Soon and very soon, we are going to see the King! Jesus—Son of God, Son of man, God Himself is going to come with clouds, and in power and great glory to bring justice to the nations. At this second appearance, he will set up his millennial reign—an earthly government headquartered in Jerusalem, Israel where he will rule in righteousness. Every knee will bow before Jesus and all of humanity will recognize him as “King of kings” and “Lord of lords.” All people and the nations will serve him (Daniel 7:13-14). The heavens and the earth, the righteous and the unrighteous, angels and demons, life and death, time and eternity will come under the dominion of the Conquering King. If we haven’t yet, we need to humble ourselves, purify our hearts, and become ready for this final act by believing, and receiving the work of the Cross, asking God’s forgiveness for our sins and inviting Jesus to be Lord and Savior of our lives.
