January 3 – Prepare For The Second Coming Of Jesus Christ
Jesus Christ compared his second coming to the time of Noah when all things appeared to be going on smoothly until the flood came unexpectedly to wipe out the people of the first generation. People failed to heed Noah’s message heralding God’s warning that people must repent of their sins. God was provoked and destroyed everyone, except the family of Noah who responded to his warning. A great flood overtook the earth and everyone died! Jesus warned the people of the present generation to learn this important lesson of repentance and confess their faith in him. Jesus said, “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed” (Luke 17:26-30).
Jesus Christ will return to earth when people have least expected. Christ will rapture his saints to heaven and condemn the unbelievers to hell fire. The left-behind-people will live under the mercy of Satan (The most wicked creature in existence!) Satan, who is also known as the devil, will torment the sinners in hell fire. However, the raptured believers will be with Christ in heaven to enjoy an everlasting peace and joy. Therefore, all people are encouraged to declare their faith in Jesus Christ in order to qualify for the rapture. Jesus Christ is the only deity who is worthy to advocate for sinners on God’s Last Day of Judgment! Christ, who has died for sinners will advocate for people who believe in him; he will exonerate them from the punishment of hell and grant them the passage to heaven. The Savior will declare his saints “Justified” while the unbelievers will languish in hell.
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I want to make heaven; I do not want to go to hell fire. Please, I surrender my life to you today; I confess you – Jesus Christ – as my personal Lord and Savior. I declare that I will faithfully serve you for the rest of my life. I believe I am now saved since I have declared you as my personal Lord and Savior. Please keep my name ever written in the book of life. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for your saving grace. Praise God. Amen!
