Christ Is Coming

The sands of grace in the hourglass of time have nearly run out, for the "coming of the Lord draweth nigh." James 5:88Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh. (James 5:8). When the Lord comes for His own the door of grace will be forever closed.
Yes, Christ is coming, and one of two things will happen when He comes; you will either be caught up to be forever with Him or left behind for judgment. Think of it—left behind for judgment!
Think of those who know the Lord Jesus as their Savior and what their gain will be. They will be "forever with the Lord," seeing His face, hearing His voice, and sharing His love and glory. Perhaps a loved one, or a dear relative or friend will be among those "called home."
Will they leave you behind?
But, dear unsaved one, why do you need to be left behind? Christ died for the ungodly, and there is not a sinner on earth that He is unwilling, or unable to save. He saves to the uttermost (Heb. 7:2525Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7:25)).
Scripture is full of examples of His love to helpless and hell-deserving sinners, for He saved harlots; He saved a thief on the brink of hell; He saved a jailor by an earthquake; He saved Saul of Tarsus when he was doing his utmost to stamp out the name of Jesus, and Jesus can save you.
Don't say that you are beyond the reach of God's heart of love. Calvary's cross proves to you that God is not a harsh judge, for "Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world." John 1:2929The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world. (John 1:29).
Sinner, your only hope is Christ. Come to Jesus now for "now is the day of salvation." Do not depend on anyone else, nor on yourself, but on Christ alone. "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me." John 14:66Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6).
The last book of the last chapter in the Bible tells us: "And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me." Rev. 22:1212And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. (Revelation 22:12). God's pleadings and warnings go on until the very end of His living Word. Do not trifle with your soul's salvation; take refuge in a living, loving Savior who still cries, "Come unto Me," and "Him that cometh to Me I will in no wise cast out."
