He Is Coming
“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus”
As the storm clouds of judgment gather over this poor sinful world, and as the day of vengeance of our God approaches, what a comfort for the believer who knows the Lord as their Saviour to recall again and again this precious promise. The Lord is coming back again to receive us to Himself, and nothing can alter or hinder that promise. He has said, “I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:3). This is indeed a wonderful hope amid all the hopelessness of the world today. To know that before the storm of judgment bursts on this deserving world, we will be transported to the skies. “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord” (1 Thessalonians 4:17).
We echo the longing of the Apostle John when he wrote, “Even so, come, Lord Jesus.”
