TEXT: Psalms 102:13-16
KEY VERSE: Acts 3:20-21 And He shall send Jesus Christ, which before was preached unto you: Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all His holy prophets since the world began.
In His first coming, Jesus did not come with His glory; if He did, probably the whole world would have followed him, including sinners, fornicators, murderers etc. When He came the first time, He was born in a stable where they kept animals.
He was crying there like a little baby hence the people that saw Him did not know that the King that created the heavens and the earth was the one crying there. He concealed His divinity with humanity so that none could see Him except those that have the eye of God. May you have the eye of God in Jesus name.
Brother, sister, tell your neighbor Jesus is coming back again, tell him the King of kings is coming back again but this time, not in a stable, not wrapped in a swaddling cot. Rather, He shall come with great signs and wonders.
Bible says immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, the moon shall not give her light, the stars shall fall from heaven, the constellations of the heavens shall be shaken, then shall appear the sign of the coming of the Son of man with power and great glory, then shall the tribes of the earth mourn.
It is in the second coming that He is coming with glory, but what do you understand from the Bible reading of today? If He has not built up Zion He would not appear in glory, hence when you see Him build up Zion then you should know that He is about to appear.
How will He build up Zion? Psalms 147:2 says, “The LORD doth build up Jerusalem: He gathereth together the outcasts of Israel.”
There are two ways that Zion is being built. Firstly, Israel must be recovered and brought back home. This has already been fulfilled from 1948. The next thing is to build up Jerusalem. Now we know that 70years ago Israel came back home but Jerusalem was not given to them, only the eastern Jerusalem was given to them; the western Jerusalem was given to the Arab people.
Jesus cannot come with part of Jerusalem in the heathen hand, He has to come when Jerusalem is fully liberated. Now Jerusalem has been liberated the groom of saints is about to come. Have you made yourself pure and ready?.
Thought for the day:
Jesus is coming for the saints, not sinners. Are you ready?
Song for the day:
He's coming in glory, He's coming in glory, all eyes shall see Him…..
Bible reading for the day:
Isaiah 16-18; Ephesians 1
