Isn’t it great knowing that Jesus is coming soon! Yep, He’s not just coming, but He’s coming SOON. “Behold, I come quickly”, Rev. 3:11. How do we know that quickly is not another 2000 years? Because the Bible teaches us to compare current events with the signs of His coming.
And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:28
The verse doesn’t read “maybe, just maybe, your redemption will draw nigh soon”. Nope, YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH. From every Believer’s point of view, things are looking bad. Even from a lost soul’s point of view, the world is in a mess. Everyone is looking for hope. Many think Obama is that hope - that light at the end of the tunnel. But we know that there is no hope outside of the Lord Jesus Christ. “For thou art my hope, O Lord God”, Ps. 71:5. My hope is in the coming of the Lord Jesus Christ – my hope is KNOWING that Jesus is coming soon.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise. Sing unto the LORD with the harp; with the harp, and the voice of a psalm. With trumpets and sound of cornet make a joyful noise before the LORD, the King. Let the sea roar, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. Let the floods clap their hands: let the hills be joyful together before the LORD; for he cometh to judge the earth: with righteousness shall he judge the world, and the people with equity. Psalm. 98:5-9
The theme is joyfulness! The King is coming!
