Revelation 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
I do not know about you, but this last year flew by. It is hard to believe that a new year begins tomorrow. With this being the last day of the year, we finish our walk through the Bible in 2017. We end with a promise, that we as Christians look forward too. Jesus says that “I am coming quickly”. He promised to return and come back for His church.
Now, some people look at that promise and mock it. They say that 2,000 years is not exactly quickly. But God says 1,000 years is but a day to Him. These 2,000 years are nothing, to a God who knows no time limits. He was as much alive before time began, that He will be when we are Heaven forever and ever. He is an eternal God and He is not bound to time like we are.
My heart agrees with John and I cry out “Come, Lord Jesus”. For when Jesus comes, we will be with Him forever. When Jesus comes, sin’s reign will end. When Jesus comes, all of the injustices in this world, will be made just. When Jesus comes, all of those who have nothing in this world, will be rich. When Jesus comes, all the tears and sadness will be no more. When Jesus comes, death will be defeated for ever. When Jesus comes, the devil will be taken care of. When Jesus comes, life will really only begin for us and we will live how God had made us to live.
However, these things are true only for those who have been saved by Him. If you have never accepted God’s free gift of Salvation, you should dread this day. For you will be judged and thrown into Hell. There, you will be tormented for eternity, forever separated from God. Seek Him now, while He might be found. Ask Jesus to forgive you. Believe in Him as the Son of God, who died for you sins. Confess to Him that you are a sinner and need to be forgiven. And you will be and then you can look forward to His return.
Yes, come Lord Jesus! Come quickly!
Dear Jesus, I thank you for another year. I thank you for the memories made in it. I thank you for being with me through it. I thank you for the newness of a new year. I pray that 2018 is a better year than 2017 was. I thank you for Your promise that You are coming quickly. Come Lord Jesus, come. Amen.
