The Judge is Coming!

 Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. [Revelation 19:11]
Do you really believe that Jesus is returning soon?  The fact of the matter He is coming back. Soon and very soon we are going to see the King.  He’s coming back to judge this world and no one will escape His wrath except those whose sins are forgiven through living faith in His atoning sacrifice. Some will go to everlasting life and others to everlasting punishment. There is a choice to be made. The world, in its ever  increasing sinful ways, is rejecting God's Son, and, it is like they are daring God to bring His righteous judgment to this world that we live in. These people will be in for a big surprise soon! The God of all creation is real and He is a powerful Sovereign King whose judgments are at hand, they are about to happen and His judgments are one hundred percent righteous. It is time for all to choose this day who they will serve!

Because of sin, everyone of us are all born and then destined to die.  By revealing His judgment as a warning, God shows His mercy to those who alive on this earth, that we all may seek the eternal safety He offers. Jesus' sacrificial death provides eternal life for all who are destined to die from sin {that is, all that will come to Him in faith}.

Jesus The Christ is the true, righteous, and the Judge of us all. We must  be found, to be faithful in Him when He judges us on that last day? If we are clothed in His righteousness, that of the Lord Jesus , we will escape His judgment for sin. Trust in Him completely and know He is not only a just judge, but a "merciful, gracious, longsuffering" God who "abounds in goodness and truth". [Exodus 34:6] With judgment looming ever so close let us all take stock of our lives and be ready because our King is coming soon!
