Ready to Go

Then they sang a new song,“You are worthy to receive the scroll and open its seals, because you were killed.  And with your own blood you bought for God people from every tribe, language, nation, and race.
You let them become kings and serve God as priests, and they will rule on earth.”

As I looked, I heard the voices of a large number of angels around the throne and the voices of the living creatures and of the elders. There were millions and millions of them, and they were saying in a loud voice,“The Lamb who was killed is worthy to receive power,riches, wisdom, strength,honor, glory, and praise.”

Revelation 5:9-12

There will be a final moment for you on this earth. If you die before the return of Jesus, you will take one last breathe and then, if you are a follower of Jesus now the truth of Eternity will open before your eyes! The Glory of Heaven, the Reality of God Almighty and the Peace and Joy of Eternity will flood your total being!

But if Jesus comes before you die, in the "twinkling of an eye" you will be changed and you will forever be with the Lord!

It is easy to say "Jesus is coming soon!" But deep in your heart there may still be the question: Is it really true? The truth is this: Jesus can come at any moment, and you could leave at the blink of an eye. The return of Jesus is as certain as the fact that if He delays His return you will leave whether He returns or not!

Many Christians spend their time ignoring the fact that Jesus may come at any moment, just as lots of people give all their energy to "staying alive" on this earth as long as possible!

The Apostle Paul said it best when he said he was anxious to go and be with the Lord, but willing to stay here for the sake of others. So we too must be ready to go and yet willing to stay!

"Lord Jesus, help me today to be ready for Your return and busy in helping others do the same! May You be praised forever. Amen."
