Christ Is Coming!
"Christ is coming!" is the trumpet call that is sounding all over the world today. From some quarters we hear its blast and peals loud and clear. There are those who are thrilled with the very thought of His Coming. There are others who do not want to hear about it.
Believers who today are truly looking for their Lord to come are expectant in their attitude. They are the people who are "waiting" for the Son of God to come from Heaven. Yes, it will be "even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come" (1 Thess. 1:10).
Soon the cry will be heard, "Christ is coming!" What a cry that will be! Will you hear it? Will you be ready to leave this world? Will you be glad to see Him come? (Matt. 25:6).
Not so if you have not purified yourself even as He is pure (1 John 3:2-3). It will be a sound of terror when you awaken to the fact that He has really come and that you have been left behind! (Matt. 24:32-51; Matt. 25:1-13).
Those who are truly looking, watching, waiting for Him to come to receive them to Himself, cannot but be filled with a rapture such as only the thought of His coming can give to them.
