Summary: Jesus is coming back, and the church is coming back with Him. That is why we need to live a Holy life now. We need to prepare to be part of the Army of God.
Jesus is coming back, and the church is coming back with Him
That is why we need to live a Holy life now
You can’t think that you can just live like the World
and then God will do all the work cleaning you up,
making you act and think Holy after you die
According to 1 Timothy 6:14 we need to live right now without spot, “until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ”
1 Timothy 6:14 (KJV) That thou keep this commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:
As the bride of Christ, “we must be presented a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle…”
Ephesians 5:27 (KJV) That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.
We are being challenged to live a Godly life NOW!
2 Peter 3:11-14 (KJV) Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, 12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness. 14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
This is the time to live right in the sight of God
This is the time to, “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.” Acts 2:38 (KJV)
I’ll address this more in a few minutes
Right now, we must see Jesus is ready to come back soon
It is soon because we are now in the last day’s
After the Rapture takes place, there will be a 7 year tribulation like the world has never seen
At the end of the tribulation period, Jesus and the Church will return in the Second Coming
In Revelation 19:11, We see these mysteries of God revealed
Revelation 19:11-12 (KJV) And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself
his eyes were like flames of fire and on his head were many crowns
a name was written on him that no one understood except himself
he wore a robe dipped in blood
and his title was the word of God
but here's the most amazing thing here is he's not going to be alone
many people don't realize the Lord is not coming back by himself
but he's actually going to be accompanied by something called the armies of heaven
the Bible calls Jesus the Lord of heaven's armies
Psalms 46:1-11 (KJV) God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. 2 Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; 3 Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. 4 There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. 5 God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. 6 The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. 7 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. 8 Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. 9 He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. 10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. 11 The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
This all sounds like the Tribulation
in revelation 19:14 this army is going to be clothed in the finest of pure white linen
and they're going to follow him on white horses
Revelation 19:14 (KJV) And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
