The Lord Is Coming Soon
Jesus Is Soon to Come!
“Some seer expects it’s going to happen this weekend that King Jesus is finally returning to this world on the famous date I'm pointing to, Alex, in this majestic floral calendar,'' cried Gene with excitement!
“I suppose; if Jesus Christ returns tonight, I’ll never graduate high school and I’ll in no way have the chance to play baseball, sing or love someone... Well, you can make the rest of my boring life out, can't you," mumbled Alex as he wept bitterly.
“I believe this is grand because I am as ready as I am ever going to be! I've got a colossal spelling bee on Monday, I can’t possibly win. Now, I can just forget about it, and take a chill pill, and not study this weekend,” hollered Gene with a chuckle.
“Right and it'll be an end to being made fun of by Sandra’s agnostic chums,” cried Melissa with a sigh of relief.
“Wow, I didn't think of all this! Jesus' return will be the finest day ever,” quietly muttered Alex as he silently glorified the Lord in his tender heart.
So, You Believe the Mystic?
"Amigos, you just can’t be too real! You chat as if you believe this mystical Doctor Wren,” uttered Melissa in mere disbelief!
“Naturally, we do! It all seems to fit together! God said it in the Bible, pals! Jesus is coming back in twinkling of an eye to receive us to himself. It’s happening this weekend! Dr. Wren predicted Christ’s second coming again! Are you ready?
Jesus is arriving this evening, yeah, yeah, yeah! And his return will be overwhelming for everyone! All will see him coming in the clouds riding on a glorious white prancing horse in a fierce windstorm with his vesture dipped in blood.
Surely, he'll take us to heaven! Next, he’ll destroy the wicked with a blazing inferno quickly and they will be ashes under our feet. Everyone alive with Christ living in their hearts will be saved," cried Gene in exhilaration!
“This doesn't imply we should sit around and patiently wait for Jesus’ return! We must toil and tell as many people as possible about the Good Gospel News before he comes back to help convert lost souls to Christianity.
God takes no pleasure in the destruction of the wicked. He calls it his strange act because he desires everyone to be saved,” cried John with a twinkle in his right eye!
For then shall be great tribulation, such as was since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake, those days shall be shortened.— Matthew 24:21-22
Jesus Will Surprise Everyone!
“Now no one can ever ultimately know when Christ will take his church away! Actually, he wants absolutely no one to guess a date. Since he’s planning to stop time on our clocks and burn our works and earth. We'll survive, except, our things won't.
He desires all people to live the best Christian life ever by loving their neighbors and enemies and adhering to the ten commandments until he unexpectedly returns! He'll quietly surprise the lost while they're sleeping but we'll be watching and praying. Only the signs of the times in the world will warn us. There'll be wars, earthquakes, floods and pestilence and dire signs in the heavens.
The love of many will wax cold and violence will abound. The unlearned will believe good is evil, and evil is good and they will die. Now, can you ever be ready in such a world when you're living in a siesta?"
“Of course not, but I'll certainly be ready; at least, I hope so, Melissa! I've been baptized you know,” hollered Ginger as she trembled with fear. Besides, I attend church religiously on Saturdays!
“How could you say, you hope so? Why aren't you sure Ginger? Else everything you've worked for so far is useless up to this point.”
"What do you mean?"
Can We Know Christ's Second Coming?
"We know truthfully that Jesus said no one in the world can predict his second coming, right! Because he plans to surprise people like a thief does, in the middle of the night. Therefore, no one can ever know! But he's not coming quietly and it certainly won't be a secret rapture! There will be boisterous noises all around with fierce lightning.
Christians simply need to be ready for Jesus' return every day by living virtuously and worshipping God on the holy Sabbaths which is every seventh day. That's all, plain and simple.
Next, Jesus said, he is utterly razing the earth and purifying it with a blazing fire after snatching his Christian brothers and sisters. The dead in Christ will rise first then we'll be caught up with him in the air changed and wearing glorious white robes.
For this reason, we must live our best holy life ever and not worry about the world going up in smoke, friends. We will be with Jesus forever and ever and enjoy paradise with God real soon when the last trumpet sounds!"
Oh Boy, I Need to Be Baptized.
“Do you remember your baptism?" Melissa cried and Ginger shrugged her shoulders and knotted her head in unbelief.
“Considerably, no, I was a baby, how could I remember? My mama said I was christened, and I trust her!”
“That's the issue, Ginger! You should always remember the glorious day of your baptism and have a plaque framed around it! The day God took you in and made you a part of his family. This was the moment you divulged and repented of your sins. Since babies can’t vouch for themselves, they’re already a part of God’s heavenly host, because; they are innocent and sinless. Your baby baptism was only a presentation to your church and a day to party. Now, since you are much older and impertinent and have become a sinner, you need a proper baptism! God said everyone is a sinner and falls short of his glory."
“Truly, are you certain?” Brawled Ginger in dismay, as she raised her brows.
"Yes, Jesus’ apostle held in Acts 2:38, Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”
“Amigos, I can’t grapple; my mother didn't understand the Holy Scriptures. I don’t have Jesus living in my heart. I’m truly not ready for Christ today! I'm in need of being baptized at once and must confess my sins to God and repent.
I know God doesn't hear the entreaties of a sinner. I also must tell my parents how mesmerized they've been with their religious traditions. They must believe what the Bible commands in Acts 2:38. They need to receive a baptism by immersion too, and right away,” cried Ginger with zeal.
Then Ginger thought of running to a Church of Christ on Saturday. She desired to do the right thing for her soul and spirit in the sight of God Almighty.
