Considerations ~ Closer to the End

There is only one way we know we are closer to the end than ever before: the passing of time shows that we are further along today than we were yesterday. We are closer to the finish line now than we were then.

Other than that, we see every generation of believers experience all the kinds of things spoken of in the Scriptures, proving that the world is going from bad to worse, just as God’s word tells us. These visible signs assure us that, while we can see these things happening the way Scripture describes them, we can also have faith that the things God promised would happen beyond our sight are also carrying on according to the will of God.

One day, the preparations of God that we can see will meet up with the preparations of God that we cannot see. There will be a trumpet blast from heaven, the sound of the archangel announcing the return of the triumphant King of kings and Lord of lords, the Son of Man riding through the clouds into the material realm, the angels gathering God’s children from every part of the earth, and the lost calling on the rocks and hills to cover them out of their fear and terror of the wrath of the Lamb of God.

Conclusion: You who know that Jesus Christ is coming back for you, live to the fullest your place in the kingdom of heaven until he comes. You who are not ready to meet Jesus should he come today, know that, “now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation (II Corinthians 6:2).
