Will Jesus come back before 2017?
1 Peter 4:7 “But THE END OF ALL THINGS IS AT HAND: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer.”
There has been a lot of discourse on end time prophecies. Bible scholars particularly those who majored in Eschatology (the study of end time events) are postulating on possible dates for the Second Coming of the LORD JESUS. Some are emphatic that JESUS will surely come back before 2017. A lot of Eschatological calculations, based on global events are being articulated. Obviously, we are the people of the end times.
We are no longer in the beginning of the End; WE ARE NOW IN THE VERY END OF THE END. John 14:2-3 “In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I WILL COME AGAIN, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also”. JESUS, the Holy One of God, who will never lie had declared that He would COME BACK AGAIN. Although no-one knows the day or the hour not even the angels of God, but the events and season, culminating in the return of the LORD JESUS, have been graphically spelt out and outlined.
It will amount to heresy and false prophecy for anyone to predict or mention the exact date or hour of the LORD’s return. But the truth is that the second coming of the LORD is obviously VERY IMMINENT. The conditions and the events for the LORD’s return are being globally fulfilled and established. The manifestation of the recent FOUR BLOOD MOON, climate change, changes in the constellations, human moral bankruptcy, LGBT, socio-political turmoil, earthquakes, etc are indices of the imminent return of the LORD JESUS, anytime from now. Since 1948 when Israel became a visible nation, prophecy relating to end times and the events that are preparatory to the Second Coming of the LORD JESUS are being rapidly fulfilled. We are told that JUST LIKE IN THE DAYS OF NOAH – Matthew 24:37-38 “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark”. With the advent of the internet, the World Wide Web, Social Media, ICT, Mass Media, etc, the Gospel is being preached in all the nations of the earth.
Matthew 24:14 “And this Gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; AND THEN SHALL THE END COME” The Second Coming of the LORD can happen anytime now like a thief in the night. While we await the imminent return of the LORD JESUS, we are expected to do FOUR THINGS (1) WATCH AND (2) PRAY (3) PURIFY OURSELVES DAILY AND (4) OCCUPY UNTIL HE COMES. To watch means to be on the alert, to pray means to be in constant fellowship, to purify means to consecrate ourselves to God DAILY and to Occupy means to be meaningfully and diligently engaged in Kingdom Corporate activities. We should never be “IDLE” or “INDOLENT” while we await the coming of the LORD. 1John 3:3 “And every man that hath this hope in Him purifieth himself, even as He is pure”. Do not get entangled with the activities of Noah’s days, be focused, get into the ARK of the LORD JESUS and live in the Power of the Holy Spirit. Always Get ready, the LORD will soon appear.
Prayer: Father God, I position myself for the Second Coming of the LORD JESUS. JESUS CHRIST IS MY LORD. My greatest desire is to MAKE HEAVEN through the Precious BLOOD of the LAMB of God. LORD, keep me by Your mercy and grace, never, to be wanting at the coming of the LORD. In JESUS Mighty Name, I will make heaven and will be part of the imminent rapture of the Church.
