As we enter into the Advent Season of the year, I am about to embark on a journey to the land of Jesus birth. It is also the land where Jesus will return.
According to Luke 21:25-36 there will signs to let all the people know when the time is near to when He will return to set up His Kingdom in the New Heaven and New Earth.
Just as there were signs that told of His first coming.
When Jesus came the first time there were very few who believed that He was the Son of God the Messiah of the world sent to be our Lord, our Redeemer, our Savior.
Luke tells us "There will be signs in the sun, the moon, and the stars, and on the earth distress among nations confused by the roaring of the sea and the waves. People will faint from fear and foreboding of what is coming upon the world, for the powers of the heavens will be shaken. Then they will see 'the Son of Man coming in a cloud' with power and great glory. Now when these things begin to take place, stand up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
Then he told them a parable: "Look at the fig tree and all the trees; as soon as they sprout leaves you can see for yourselves and know that summer is already near. So also, when you see these things taking place, you know that the kingdom of God is near. Truly I tell you, this generation will not pass away until all things have taken place. Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away.
"Be on guard so that your hearts are not weighed down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of this life, and that day catch you unexpectedly, like a trap. For it will come upon all who live on the face of the whole earth. Be alert at all times, praying that you may have the strength to escape all these things that will take place, and to stand before the Son of Man."
There will be no mistaking who Jesus is when he comes again. Are you ready for His return? If you have not made a decision to believe in Him and if you have not received Him into your life as Lord and Savior. Now is the time to get right with God.
Grab hold onto John 3:16 "For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but will have eternal life."
He said "I am the way the truth and live. No one comes to the Father except by me."
There is no other way into the Kingdom except to believe In Jesus Christ and Him crucified for your sins who lived and died and lives again so that you too might live. When you believe these things than you will receive the love of the Father, the forgiveness of your sins and the robe of righteousness given to you by Jesus His Son, and the peace of God given by the Holy Spirit.
You will the joy of walking with Him today and the assuredness that you will be walking with Jesus for all the tomorrows of eternity when He comes to establish His Kingdom.
I would encourage you to use this Advent Season to get ready to meet the King of all creation and to spread the Good News to others so that they too might know the Joy of having Jesus as their King of king and Lord for now and for all eternity.
