Till He Comes . . .

This is #2 in our 5-minute devotion on The 2nd Coming of Jesus. Today Larry & Paul Neville are sharing together.

1 Corinthians 11:23, 26:  For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

Every time we share communion we PROCLAIM the Lord’s death TILL HE COMES!

2 Peter 3:3-4 NLV, I want you to know that in the last days men will laugh at the truth. They will follow their own sinful desires. They will say, “He promised to come again. Where is He?

1. We have Hope

I love that word, “HOPE.” There are too many people who do not have hope today. As a Christ Follower you have hope in this life and hope in the life to come.

1 Thessalonians 4:13-15 NLT, Brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope14 For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died. 15 We tell you this directly from the Lord: We who are still living when the Lord returns will not meet him ahead of those who have died.

2. Our greatest HOPE lies in the RETURN of JESUS CHRIST

1 Thessalonians 4:16-17, For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever.

3. We will meet HIM and those who have DIED in the FAITH in the CLOUDS.

Keep looking up for your REDEMPTION is close.

Till He Comes . ..

Here are the Scriptures we are reading in the video devotional today.

1 Corinthians 11:23, 26:  For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you: 26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death till He comes.

The great preacher F. B. Meyer once asked evangelist D. L. Moody, “What is the secret of your success?”  Moody replied, “For many years I have never given a sermon without the consciousness that the Lord may come before I have finished.”

Every time we share communion together we are reminded of:
His physical death,
His body broken to save us,
His blood that was shed to pay for our sin – ‘until he comes’,

Our confident hope that He is coming back.  

Three Things to think about today:

1. I’m Going Away

Acts 1:11,  They said, “Men of Galilee, why are you standing here staring at the sky? Jesus has been taken away from you into heaven. And someday, just as you saw him go, he will return!

2. I’m Preparing a Place for you

John 14:1, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? 3 When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am.

3. I’m Coming back

“And someday, just as you saw him go, he will return!

2 Peter 3:3-4 NLV, I want you to know that in the last days men will laugh at the truth. They will follow their own sinful desires. They will say, “He promised to come again. Where is He? Since our early fathers died, everything is the same from the beginning of the world.”

Sow today for your Tomorrows

“Go and live in the village of Zarephath, near the city of Sidon. I have instructed a widow there to feed you” (1 Kings 17).

Sow today for your Tomorrows

We love the stories in the Bible showing God’s provisions for widows and woman of Faith. Today we talk about the the widow of Zarephath in 1 Kings chapter 17.

This story took place during a famine. The widow woman had no food left, she only had a little flower and oil to make a last meal for her and for her son. Then this man of God comes and asked her to do a very difficult thing, “make that last meal for me.”

The Request came with a Promise

Anytime God asked you to do something it is because He wants to bless and reward you. He is asking you to respond with faith.

“Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” (Hebrews 11:6 NKJV).

The Promise was Fulfilled to her

“So she did as Elijah said, and she and Elijah and her family continued to eat for many days. 16 There was always enough flour and olive oil left in the containers, just as the Lord had promised through Elijah” (1 Kings 17:15-16 NLT).

The Unexpected Reward

This is the results of sowing the seeds today for your tomorrow. “Some time later the woman’s son became sick. He grew worse and worse, and finally he died” (Verse 17). Her Father God had already seen past the famine to this moment. God knows your future and He is already preparing rewards for you. Of course her son was raised from the dead.

Don’t be afraid to sow seeds today for your tomorrows.

Have a great day,

Larry & Janet
