It could be today or maybe tomorrow, possibly at 3 a.m. in the morning, or even at 5 p.m. in the evening. If you were to ask me, “Pastor, when do you think Jesus is coming?” I would say, “I can’t tell you, the day nor the hour, but I believe it is soon.”
Let me give you some prophecies that point to the coming of the Lord.
- Many say that “I am Christ.” (Matthew 24:5)
- Ye shall hear of wars and rumors of war. (Matthew 24:6)
- Nation shall rise against nation. (Matthew 24:7)
- There shall be famines. (Matthew 24:7)
- Earthquakes in different places. (Matthew 24:7)
If you are interested on finding the truth, just read the news. Friend, it is all over the news.
There are so many more prophecies in the Bible that point to the second coming of Jesus.
To further understand, read Matthew, Chapter 25. That is your homework for tonight —there will be a test; the test is whether you read it or not.
Let me give you a scripture that will help you in case you decide you want to be saved. Acts 2: 38 “Then Peter said unto them, ‘Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.’”
First, repent, second, be baptized in Jesus name and third, receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Holy Spirit). It’s plain and simple. Let’s get ready — Jesus is coming.
Amen and Amen.
