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. 4 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 hope. 14 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.
