The Coming Back Of Jesus: How To Be Prepared As A Christian by iliyande(m): 8:31am On Dec 13, 2015
In the New Testament's 260 chapters, Christ's return is mentioned no less than 318 times. Statistically, one verse for every 25 pages of the Bible refers to the return of Jesus Christ in some way, shape, or form. Make no mistake about it: Jesus Christ will come back again, and God has given us specific instructions for what we are to do while we wait.

We are to be watching for Him.

"Blessed are those servants whom the master, when he comes, will find watching" (Luke 12:37 NKJV). We shouldn't get caught up in the things that dominate the minds and hearts of nonbelievers, such as what we will eat, drink, and wear. Instead, we should be consumed with our pursuit of the kingdom of God. We should seek, above all, the rule and reign of Jesus Christ in our lives.

We should be ready to go.

Let me ask you this: If Christ came back today, would you be ready to go with Him? If Christ came back at that moment, would a place where you're about to go or a thing you're about to do cause you to be ashamed or embarrassed in any way? If so, then you need to change what you're doing. If you are not living in a way that is pleasing to Him right now, then His return will come as a great shock and surprise to you.

We should want to become more like Jesus Christ each day.

According to 2 Peter 3:11-14, "You ought to live holy and godly lives. . . . So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless, and at peace with Him" (NIV). If you have a real sense of His imminent return, then it will impact the way you live and will cause you to purify yourself, even as He is pure (1 John 3:3).

We should anxiously await His return.

Have you ever been looking forward to seeing someone? You wait for the sound of that person's car in the driveway. You pull the door open before your friend can even knock. That's what it means to "anxiously await" someone's arrival. If anything would cause us hesitancy in saying, "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!" (Revelation 22:20 NKJV), then we need to carefully examine our lives.

We should be working (Luke 12:43).

While watching is the evidence of faith, working is the evidence of faith in action. Watching for the Lord's return will help us prepare our own lives, but working will assure that we will take others with us.

God bless you. Christ's coming is imminent - it is clearer now than ever before.

This write up confirms what my spirit has been telling me for the past few weeks.

May we not be like the foolish virgins.

There'll be no 2nd coming because there never was a first coming to begin with.

The White Man lied to you to believe his tradition and mind-control principles for his selfish goals. We are all selfish anyway. We all want the good things of life.

There is no hell or heaven as is being sold to you. The world would not end. There'll always be humans on earth.

Think, read and ask questions.
