Topic: Jesus Will Return [Sunday, 14th May 2017]
The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. 2 Peter 3-9
I have heard folks say Jesus will not return because they feel they’ve been hearing about His impending return for a long time, and still He has not come, even though nearly all the signs of the end time are already happening. Let me quickly reiterate the fact that Jesus is coming back and I am excited about His coming.
You also should be excited. I really can’t wait to put on immortality and the glorious body I will receive. I can’t wait to live in a world of peace and tranquility, where pure joy exist, for eternity.
But you see, Jesus does not just want only those that have their names in the book of life to come with Him to this new world, He actually wants all men. He does not want anyone to suffer the ever-burning furnace of hell, but that everyone should repent (2 Peter 3:9). This is one of the major reasons He has not come.
Although, I am sure He is aware that not all men will accept His sacrifice for their sins, He wants, as a just Judge, the gospel to be preached in all nations of the earth, as a witness, then the end will come (Matthew 24:14).
It is the Lord’s intention to get, as much people as possible, saved. This is the reason why, as ministers of the word of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:18-19), we should put in more effort to reconcile more people unto the Lord. The goal is not to scare people with hell, but to get them to genuinely love the Lord and live for Him.
The Lord is counting on us to get this job done as soon as possible. Probably you are reading this, and have not come to know the Lord Jesus, call upon His name today and be saved from sin by His blood. He loves you so much. Accept Him as your Lord and Saviour now. Remember, Jesus will return.
Keep winning daily.
Dear Lord, I pray for sinners all over the world, that the glorious light of the gospel shines on them. That they accept Your sacrifice for their sins, and accept the life You are offering them, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
