Good morning beloved, glory be to God for giving us another day full of blessings. I believe you had a wonderful night of sleep. May the Lord continue to watch over our lives.
Today we learn something about the Lord’s return. Please let us read the following verses from the KJV Bible.
2 Thessalonians 2:1-5 “Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand. Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God. Remember ye not, that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things?”
We are in the last days of this world and the signs in these days do indicate that the return of our Lord Jesus is at hand. During the time Paul and the other brothers wrote this letter to the Church in Thessalonica, they had experience almost all the signs indicating that the return of our Lord was at hand except one sign; the coming of the anti-christ. Today, there is a full proof that the anti-christ has indeed come- he is fighting against the truth, doing all that he can to deceive people and deny them of the Gospel. We may not have realized, but the truth is that the anti-christ has come, and he is living amongst us. Note that anyone who is against anything relating to Christ is the anti-christ. Let us therefore be very vigilant in these last days.
But we should be very grateful that we know the truth, and that we have believed in the Lord Jesus. What is left of us is to live the life full of righteousness unto the Lord, for the unrighteous man has no place in the Kingdom of God.
Romans 13:12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.”
I pray that the Lord will cause us to be fully prepared for His return. God grace us all. Amen.
Please share a word with the world.
