He IS Coming

...and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, 
and we shall be changed. I Corinthians 15:52

Thou art coming, O my Savior, Thou art coming, O my King,
In Thy beauty all resplendent, In Thy glory all transcendent;
Well may we rejoice and sing: 
Coming in the opening east 
Herald brightness slowly swells; 
Coming! O my glorious Priest, Hear we not Thy golden bells?

Thou art coming, Thou are coming; 
We shall meet Thee on Thy way,
We shall see Thee, we shall know Thee, 
We shall bless Thee, we shall show Thee
All our hearts could never say:
What an anthem that will be, Ringing out our love to Thee,
Pouring out our rapture sweet At Thine own all glorious feet.
Thou art coming, at Thy table We are witnesses for this;
While rememb'ring hearts Thou meetest
In communion clearest, sweetest,
Earnest of our coming bliss,
Showing not Thy death alone, And Thy love exceeding great,
But Thy coming and Thy throne, All for which we long and 

O the joy to see Thee reigning,Thee, my own beloved Lord!
Every tongue Thy Name confessing,
Worship, honor, glory, blessing
Brought to Thee with glad accord:
Thee my Master and my Friend,Vindicated and enthroned;
Unto earth's remotest end Glorified, adored, and owned.
Frances Havergal  1836-1879

Reader, it has been two thousand years since Jesus was
taken up to heaven with the promise that He will return.
The Apostles and early church Fathers wrote that the
church at that time needed to be watching. The Good News
is that He is still coming "at a time we think not." The pro-
mise of His coming has fallen off the church radar recently
and yet, the signs of a coming one world government are
everywhere, if we could just see how fast the tribulation is
coming together. Jesus said we were to "watch and pray."
Paul wanted to bring as many into salvation as he could.
Nothing kept him from preaching the Gospel. Oh, that we
would understand that the time is short and many are lost.
Ask God to be a witness, through you, of His salvation.

"Did anyone ever tell you that God sent His only Son to
die on the cross for your sins so that you can have eternal
life in heaven?"

I have had many responses to this question. At the very
least it is an opener to a deeper discussion. I dare say,
many have never heard this. If you are reading this and
are unsure of your salvation, get hold of the Gospel of
John and ask God to show you just who Jesus is.
