The coming of Jesus is almost a daily speech and is now sounding like a cliché. This is a news that the apostles of the old began preaching just immediately after Jesus had Just ascended the heavens. Jesus actually told them that He would go back to the father and prepare a place for them; his people and then come back to take them to where He is, because where He is, His people will also be. More so, He told them that He would not leave them comfortless, rather He would send a comforter which is the Holy Spirit. Since then, the apostles had gone round to preach this gospel that the king is coming back again to take His people with him back to the father.
1 Thessalonians 4: 16-17 states: “For the Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout…. then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so, shall we ever be with the Lord.”
This is the good news, Jesus Christ is coming for people who believe in Him and are already washed by His blood, just like the book of John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life”.
It has been several years this prophecy was prophesied but it appears as though many who were getting ready relaxed especially because it has taken a while and it is yet to come to fulfilment. They have ended up doing all sorts of things that they deemed fit which is not according to the scriptures. Paul said, “all things are lawful but not all things are expedient”, this means that everything one wants to do is their choice but may not be according to the will of the father. This is why, one needs to know what is the will of the father.
Every day draws us closer to the day of the coming of the king because we are already living in the last days. In the coming days, we will be celebrating Christmas, a time mapped out to celebrate the birth of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ. Many people are planning and buying things and getting ready for the Christmas celebration. Some women are buying clothes and all manner of things in order to look good for the celebration. But there is a most important and ultimate celebration that is coming up, it is called the marriage of the Lamb. This ought to be the most prepared because it will be sudden in the twinkle of an eye. This is the more reason why we shouldn’t forget about the prophecy of His coming because He is coming for the people who are ready and are prepared. Therefore, it is pertinent to prepare ultimately for the return of the master for the KING IS COMING!
