Friday 9th September, Today’s Article: Are You Expecting Him? (Rhapsody of Realities Today)

ARE YOU EXPECTING HIM? So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look
for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation
(Hebrews 9:28).

The Bible lets us know that the end of all things is near; the coming of the Lord is so close: “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer” (1 Peter 4:7). The question is, are you watching for His return? Are you expecting Him?

There’re Christians who aren’t taking this seriously; therefore, they’re casual with their relationship with God and complacent about their Christianity. They’re like the 5 foolish virgins the Bible talks about (Matthew 25) who weren’t expecting the return of their master and were unprepared when he eventually came.

Don’t be among those who say, “This talk of Jesus coming soon has been on for ages, when is it ever going to happen?” Such folks will be caught unawares when it eventually happens because they weren’t expecting Him. The Bible says only those who are expecting Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation. The events and happenings around the world today are clear indications that His appearing is imminent.

Don’t be caught “sleeping.” When the Apostle Paul in 1 Thessalonians 5:6 admonished us not to sleep, he wasn’t talking about physical sleep. He was talking about spiritual sleep, when you’re so deep into worldly things that you become unaware and oblivious of the spiritual realities around you. Jesus told us to watch and pray, “…for in such an hour as ye think not, the Son of man cometh” (Matthew 24:44).

We’re on a crusade to reach at least 7 billion people with the Gospel and get them ready for the Rapture; be a part of it. We want our towns, villages, cities and the nations of the world to be emptied for the Rapture. This is our drive; we’re leaving no stone unturned in ensuring no one is left behind. Visit www.reachoutworld.org on how you can be a part of this global soul-winning crusade.
