THE NEXT GREAT EVENT: Are You Ready?
No it is not about the coming of the circus or carnival, not some great sporting event, but it is the great event that is next on God’s time clock. What is this great event? It is the coming of the lord Jesus Christ for His people. These are the people who have placed their trust, faith, and hope in His death burial and resurrection. These are the people that are looking for the promise. God cannot and will not lie. He promised that He will return and what He has promised He will surely do. It will be a unexpected and sudden event. [1 Corinthians 15: 51-52]
For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [1 Thess. 4: 14] Can you imagine the chaos that will take place when Jesus comes and takes His people out of this world, in a moment, in the twinkling of the eye? There will be panic and turmoil like this world has never seen. People will wonder where all the other people went. People from all walks of life and from every nation, will be gone. It will be a very sobering time, but the big question still remains: Will you be ready, FOR THE NEXT GREAT EVENT?
