Both the Old and New Testaments are full of allusions to the times
in which we live today, which include: the last days, the rapture,
the tribulation, the second coming, followed by the Millennium. There
are far more prophecies concerning these days than the prophecies
pertaining to the birth of Christ. The season of His first coming makes
me think about His next coming.
Today I was listening to the music from Handel’s, Messiah, and
specifically to the music he wrote from 1Corinthians 15:51-55:
(read the whole chapter. You’l be glad you did!)
“Behold! I show you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall
all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last
trump: for the trumpet will sound, and the dead shall be raised
imperishable, and we shall all be changed”...then,
“O death, where is thy sting?
O grave, where is thy victory?”
The Rapture has always been immenent, meaning it could happen today.
Is there anything you need to do to prepare? His coming is more sure than
the dawn. And, yes, we do not know the day or the hour, which is why we
need to be awake, alert, watching.
