The Return of the King

“And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to every man according as his work shall be. I am the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, first and the last.” Revelation 22:12-13

In the popular hymn Jesus Is Coming To Earth Again it speaks about how no one knows when the Lord is going to come back. It has been somewhere around 2000 years since Jesus Christ left earth for the first time and for 2000 years the Christians have been waiting for his return. The return of the King of this earth. One of the last commands Christ gave to his disciples was to “Go and preach the gospel to every creature.” Thus preparing the world for Christ return when he comes.

In 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 “For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.”

I just can’t wait for Him to return and yet I feel sorry for all those who will be left behind in the rapture. Yet we must heed the warning in Revelation and never stop watching for the return of Jesus Christ.

Revelation 3:3 “Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come as a thief in the night, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.”

So let us be ever watchful for the return of the King lest He take us unawares. As a thief in the night!
