Looking for the Lords return

Most of you reading this know I’m big into prophecy. I love the anticipation of the event and I love looking for the signs of the times. Its wonderful to know our salvation is real and our future is sure. Here is a good article I read today, I’ve read similar things many many times over but thought I’d share for those of you who weren’t up on the parallels between the days of Noah and our times.

As it was in the days of Noah, so will it be at the coming of the Son of Man (Matt 24:37). The time leading up to the Great Flood was a lot like our time today in that it was characterized by a deliberate and escalating disregard for the ways of God. Finally β€œthe Lord saw how great man’s wickedness on earth had become and that every inclination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil all the time” (Gen. 6:5).

As I was reading today about solar max storms coming in 2012 (the big scary hollywood years) and Israel existence and relations with countries around and the constant escalating war rumours with Iran and Russia, I can’t help but be reminded of the Ezekiel prophecies, and indeed all endtime prophecies that go together to indicate that we are living in the last days. Israel as a nation being one of the biggest, maybe THE biggest sign that we are in biblical days, end days looking for the return of Christ – to bad our churches don’t preach it much anymore πŸ™

I’m pumped though, I love looking for the return of Christ, like the bride, never knowing the hour, eagerly awaiting her husband (jewish wedding picture), packed, ready to go, staying up late each night expecting but not knowing exactly when He would arrive…

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this message for the churches. I am both the source of David and the heir to his throne.Β [fn] I am the bright morning star.”

The Spirit and the bride say, “Come.” Let each one who hears them say, “Come.” Let the thirsty ones come–anyone who wants to. Let them come and drink the water of life without charge.

And I solemnly declare to everyone who hears the prophetic words of this book: If anyone adds anything to what is written here, God will add to that person the plagues described in this book.

And if anyone removes any of the words of this prophetic book, God will remove that person’s share in the tree of life and in the holy city that are described in this book.

He who is the faithful witness to all these things says, “Yes, I am coming soon!” Amen! Come, Lord Jesus!

The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all.

  1. I definitely think that anticipating the Lord’s return has the power to transform our lives as Christians. The anticipation gives us hope and should also spur us on to love and good deeds.

  2. How then shall we live? I appreciate your words and focus on Jesus’ immanent return, because I am reminded to live today with a sense of urgency like the disciples did after Jesus ascended into heaven. They lived believing He was in fact returning SOON, and laid it all on the line for the sake of the gospel. I pray that I’d get some of this passion for the kingdom brewing afresh in me. Thanks Micah.
