Do you know the truth about the end of the world? It's time to get serious about your eternity.
It's time to take a look at your future. Someday, maybe soon, one way or the other you will suddenly be facing Jesus. He's warned you He's coming. It's time to get ready.
The Word of God in Matthew 24:30 says, "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory." Jesus lets us know here that He's coming back. There's no doubt about how it's all going to end. The same Jesus who ascended into heaven, after His resurrection, will return to this earth. The first time He came to take the death sentence for our sins. The second time He's coming to take over.
It's described again in Luke 21:27 where Jesus says, "At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud, with power and great glory." What time is He referring to? Luke 21:10-11 say, "There will be great earthquakes, famines, and pestilences in various places and fearful events and great signs from heaven." The Bible describes many signs that will come just before Jesus comes back. The warning lights will be on first, and a lot of those signs sound strangely familiar.
The Bible says there will be a nation of Israel before Jesus comes back, and there wasn't for 2,000 years. There is now. Jesus said there will be great turbulence in the environment and that there will be talk of peace in the Middle East. Jesus said the Gospel will spread to the ends of the earth to every nation. That's a prophecy that can finally be fulfilled now by the Internet and radio, which reaches every corner of the planet. Is Jesus coming soon? No one knows, but He'll return to a world that looks very much like ours.
Jesus gives this warning in Matthew 24:44, "You must be ready because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him." He's coming. The warning lights are on. Are you ready? You are ready only if you have asked this Jesus to be your personal Savior from the penalty of your personal sin.
John 3:18 says, "Whoever believes in Him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the Name of God's one and only Son." Believing in Jesus is recognizing that your sin is a life or death issue and that your only hope of forgiveness or heaven is Jesus - the One who loved you enough to die for your sin. You believe when you consciously put all your trust in Him to be your spiritual rescuer from your sin. If you haven't done that, then you're not ready for His coming.
