I wonder how I would have reacted to Jesus had I lived during His time on this planet. I’m almost positive I would see Him as some kind of imposter. Most of his contemporaries viewed Him as an ordinary man with extraordinary power. Even King Herod had heard about this miracle worker and wanted to see more. Many didn’t know He was the promised Messiah. Even though all the prophecies were being fulfilled by Him, it would have been difficult to grasp the whole thing.
It was just the right time in history for this to happen. Is the time right now for His return? This is something we can speculate about and hope for, but the truth is we don’t know when He will return, but we can be sure it will be the right time.
It’s time now for us to prepare for His second coming, by readying our hearts and minds with the good news He has already accomplished for us.
Our nation is slowly being corrupted and becoming victims of political correctness instead of truth. There is a short span of 70-90 years in a lifetime. As I grow older, those years pass faster. Many cry out for answers and it’s our obligation, as followers of Jesus, to let them know God’s truth.
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
The work has already been done. Now it’s time to ready ourselves for the second coming of our Redeemer.
Thank you, Lord, for coming at just the right time to redeem a lost and condemned world. I will never fathom the depth of your love for us, but I will always praise you and thank you for it. Amen!
