Prepared For His Second Coming
“Behold, I am coming as a thief. Blessed is he who watches, and keeps his garments, lest he walk naked and they see his shame.” Revelation 16:15 NKJV
Jesus is coming again, even if it’s in the next two hundred years; it’s an undisputable truth: He is coming again – soon! But as He told us, no one knows exactly when He will come. We can be guided by the signs, but no one can predict the exact time of His coming. Some have tried in the past to predict the time but they failed.
Jesus said, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Matthew 24:36, 42-44)
We’ve got to be prepared at all times. Being prepared is first to keep ourselves in a perfect condition, because He is coming for a church without spot or wrinkle, a glorious church; being prepared also entails being busy with whatever assignment He gave to us, doing it faithfully. Jesus said, “Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods.” (Matthew 24:45-47)
