I keep my eyes on the skies because Jesus is coming again. Jesus promised His followers that He would return again and receive them,I am a follower.I have to be awake,be alert,and be ready, for His promise to return is a fact I believe. Oh what a wonderful promise.! So until then I will keep my eyes on the skies, song in my heart as I watch to welcome His return.
1 Corinthians 15: 52. In a moment,in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall, sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
Ever since Jesus ascended into the clouds,His followers have gazed towards the heavens anticipating His return.On the day of His ascension, two angels of the Lord comforted the distraught disciples with the promise of His Second Coming. “And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold two men stood by them in white apparel; Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven “
Meeting in the air :1Thessalonians 4:17 “For the the Lord Himself shall 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 remains 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 . Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” CAUGHT UP!
Looking up, mankind has always looked to or referred to the heavens for natural and spiritual blessings.We must realize that the signs of the times maybe bad for the devil but good for the church. Jesus said that the bad times are signs that His coming draws nearer and nearer and our deliverance from the power of the devil and his demonic forces corruption,crime,sickness oppression. suppression, world wide political unrest,war and rumors of wars,fears of nuclear weapons.For us Christians it’s time to be steadfast and unmovable, just LOOK UP!
The blessed hope and future of the Christian is that Jesus will return for His Church,He comforted His disciples with these words : “Let not your hearts be troubled: ye believe in God believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions : if it were not so , I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go prepare a place for you,I will come again and receive you unto my self ; that where I am,there ye be also.”( John 14:1-3).
In a world of sin sickness and corruption we have a promise of a better world that awaits us .As Christians we should talk about the coming of the Lord and about ruling and reigning with Jesus Christ throughout eternity. Paul urged us, “Comfort one another with these words.” (Thessalonians 4 :18). We do not know when He will come but we are told that His coming is sure,we are charged to watch for it. Let us do so and keep our eyes on the skies !
There comes a time in every person’s life when they must choose whether to serve or reject God .Noone can make that decision. Today is the day of Salvation. His coming is at hand !We need to be ready for His return lest we miss out on spending eternity with God. Let’s not get distracted by false so called prophets, hirelings, corruption and exploitation in the church world,they have a special reservation in hell.
