Jesus is coming again

Jesus is coming again, scriptures is filled with promises of His 2nd Coming. It will bring hope and rest to the true church, but it will bring judgment to the unbelievers.

James 5:8 Be also patient; establish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draws near.

1 Corinthians 1:7-8 So that you come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2 Peter 3:9-10 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

The time when He comes will be when the church is spiritually sleeping and people are concerned about enjoyng life.

Luke 17:28-32 Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. In that day, he who shall be upon the housetop, and his goods in the house, let him not come down to take it away: and he that is in the field, let him likewise not return back. Remember Lot's wife.

There is no new age of peace coming where different religion harmonize and appreciate each other, because our basic problem is not lack of tolerance, our basic problem is our tolerance for sins. This world's greatest problem is not global warming but global rebellion again God.

The bible is clear that all of us have sinned:

Romans 3:10-14 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one: There is none that understands, there is none that seeks after God. They are all gone out of the way, they are together become unprofitable; there is none that does good, no, not one. Their throat is an open sepulcher; with their tongues they have used deceit; the poison of asps is under their lips: Whose mouth is full of cursing and bitterness:

The remedy for our sin is to cry out to Jesus for our salvation, he saved us from the curse and control of sins when he died at the cross, shedding His innocent blood for you and me. We are saved to live a holy life, a life that glorify God, we are not saved to have a self fulfilling time on earth.

Today Jesus is calling you, will you come to Jesus?
