“Wake-up! The Day is Almost Here!!”
And do this, understanding the present time: The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Romans 13:11-12
The Lord Jesus Christ is coming back to Earth in two stages, the first stage is the being ‘caught-up’ of all the TRUE believers, which is also known as the “Rapture.” That is the time when ALL TRUE BELIEVERS will be SUDDENLY, SWIFTLY, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, caught up from the earth, and carried into Heaven.
The Second Coming of Christ is when He returns with ALL the TRUE BELIEVERS, those of the past, who died in Christ, and those who were RAPTURED from the earth. He will return to claim His RIGHTFUL position as KING OF KINGS and LORD OF LORDS, and will set up His kingdom on earth for His thousand year reign.
The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Roman believers, gives them a WAKE-UP call, because Paul believed that Christ’s return was imminent even in his day. He told them that their SALVATION was nearer than when they first believed. Basically, what Paul was saying was that, the work of their SALVATION was soon to be completed, and that the DAY of reckoning was almost upon them. So their lives needed to be CLEANED-UP, to do away with ANY deeds of darkness, (sins) and to prepare themselves by putting on the armor of light or by TURNING AWAY from ANY sins they were participating in, and confessing them to God and asking for His forgiveness, because the Bridegroom cometh and they needed to be READY.
My question for you is: Are you READY? The DAY that Paul was referring to will be the beginning of the culmination of time as we know it. The END of the Age, the FINAL call is being given throughout the earth for the REDEMPTION of ALL MANKIND. Many will ignore it, or reject His invitation to become a part of His family, and will ultimately end up in the place of torment, torture, agony and pain, that place known as HELL.
If you have not given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are NOT READY for this CLIMATIC part of God’s Plan for His creation. However, He is giving you the opportunity NOW to come to Him and escape the inevitable destination of HELL. You come with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and BE READY for His coming. Do it NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
