Waiting for the Finish!

Then the one sitting on the throne said:

I am making everything new. Write down what I have said. My words are true and can be trusted. Everything is finished! I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will freely give water from the life-giving fountain to everyone who is thirsty.   All who win the victory will be given these blessings. I will be their God, and they will be my people.

Revelation 21:5-7

I suppose I could, and maybe should read these verses everyday. When Jesus makes something "new" it doesn't just "look like" it is new, it really is new! And when He says all things are finished, they are indeed finished!

There are those who are predicting a soon and total collapse of the world system! Never forget that even when every power on earth is "out of control," Jesus will still be in control and will still be the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end.

The conclusion of life on this earth will not come because of "global warming" or "nuclear anihilation." It is foolish to think that man can destroy this earth, or to think that man can save the planet! As the Bible clearly says, all men are like grass that appears for a little while and then is gone!

There is only One Man who can Save the people of this earth, and He already did what was needed to provide that Salvation for everyone who will accept it! Jesus finished His work on the Cross of Calvary!

The "Signs" of the return of Jesus seem to be everywhere! We are like runners in a race who can see the finish line. An old song said it well. "Soon oh, very soon, we are going to see the King!" Hold on to your faith and run with everything that is in you toward the End!

"Lord Jesus, even as You have finished Your work on the Cross, we are waiting for the "finish line" in this race of life! Encourage us today to keep running until we see Your face coming with the clouds! And may You be praised forever. Amen."
