And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
In light of what all is going on in our nation, one could become extremely discouraged. Did we ever think that we would see the day (in the United States of America) when Christians were singled out and executed for their faith? That a monument of the Ten Commandments would be removed from a State Capital? The definition of marriage changed and a woman imprisoned for standing up for her religious freedom?
To the bewilderment and unbelief of many, we’ve watched over this last year as these very events have transpired. These atrocious verdicts and abominable acts towards God and Christianity are destroying the very foundation of this nation. We are living in some very perilous times and only God knows what is ahead for our nation.
But in light of all this, I would like to remind us, the redeemed, the blood washed, to take courage! These things were foretold (2 Timothy 3:1 This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come…). But oh the JOY that should be flooding our souls when we call to remembrance the words of our Savior! As Luke writes, when these things begin to come to pass…Look up…Lift up your heads! For your redemption draweth nigh! This is what we have been waiting for, praying for, longing for, the return of our Messiah!
My friends, BE NOT discouraged but REJOICE, for OUR KING is COMING! So spread the NEWS!
I can hear the chariots rumble…I can see the marching throng…And the flurry of God’s trumpets spell the end of sin and wrong…Regal robes are now unfolding…Heavens grandstands all in place…Heavens choir is now assembled…Start to sing Amazing Grace…The King is coming, the KING IS COMING, Praise God He’s coming for me!
