PREPARE FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD
Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have
told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a
place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that
where I am, there ye may be also.
Revelation 22:12-13 And,
behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man
according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and
the end, the first and the last.
greatest event that will ever happen on this earth will be the coming of
the lord Jesus Christ. This is because it is going to be the end of time
and the ushering in of the Saints of God into a blissful eternity. It is
also going to be a time of tribulation, anguish and doom for unrepentant
sinners (Rm. 2:6-11). But it is surprising that just as many unbelievers
does not believe that Jesus is, coming again, many Christians are not
even -prepared for His coming.
coming is SURE and will surprise many, for at such an hour you (believer
and unbeliever) do not expect the Son of man cometh (Matt. 24:44).
scripture does not leave us in dark as regards the certainty of Christ's
second coming. The Lord Himself spoke of his return several times. In
John 14:1-3 we read "Let not your hearts be troubled, ye believe in God,
believe also in me.
father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told
you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place
for you will COME AGAIN and receive you unto myself; that where I am
there ye may be also. Daniel, in the old testament, in one of his
visions saw this and wrote “I saw In the Night Visions, and behold, one
like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven (Dan 7:13). Paul
wrote “keep this commandment without spot, unrebukable, until the
appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ (I Tim. 6:14). And from the mouth of
angels present at his ascension we hear these words "And while they
looked steadfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold two men stood by
them in white apparel, which also said, ye men of Galilee, why stand ye
gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus which is taken up from you into
heaven shall so COME in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven
(Acts 1:10-11) surely "he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see
him, and they also which pierced him and all kindred’s of the Earth
shall wail because of him. Even so Amen." (Rev. 1 :7)
When we go
through Matthew 24 and 25 the signs of his coming are clearly written
Jesus himself said there would be deceptions, false Christ, wars and,
rumours of wars, famines pestilences, earthquakes, offences, betrayals,
hatred, false prophet; lawlessness and killing of the believers
(Martyrdom). There has been no other times that these signs are more
pronounced as now. For example false Christ’s, false prophets and
deceptions (419) abound everywhere. And you may want to know that
earthquakes really got started in about 1917. In 1917 the scientists
carried in the first seismographic h machines into the high). Andes
mountains of Peru. The first year, they registered one earthquake
anywhere in the world. The next year they recorded two, the third year
they registered In 7 earthquakes in different parts of the world, the
following year 14, and from then on earthquakes have multiplied at such
a rate, and in most unlikely places. I was a living I witness to the
minor quaking in Ijebu-ode Ogun state in 1994. And just in January 2001
the It Earthquake that hit India claimed about 30,000 lives! Until today
the scientists say the earth is in constant quaking, somewhere! And if
the it (earth keeps up the vibration she is having now, they fear it
will shake itself apart. But this will not really happen for it is just
the signs of the coming of the Lord. Hell is just enlarging itself to
make room for all the sinners (outside and inside the church) that are
dying and going there, and this is one of the causes (Isaiah 5:11- 16,
I Corinth. 6:9-10). Surely Christ shall appear the second time and that
very soon. Are you ready?
coming there shall be a separation, the wheat shall be separated
from the chaff, the sheep from the goats, the faithful, from the
hypocrite. Matthew 25: 31-46 says “when the Son of man shall come in
his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the
throne of his glory; and before him shall be gathered all nations; and
he shall separate them one from the another, as a shepherd divideth his
sheep from the goats: and he shall set the sheep on the right hand, but
the goats on the left. Then shall the king say unto them on his right
hand, come ye blessed of my father, inherit the kingdom, prepared for
you from the foundation of the world…… then shall he say also unto ,
them on the left hand, depart from me ye cursed, into everlasting fire,
prepared for the devil and his angels ............ and these shall go
away into everlasting punishment; but the righteous into life eternal".
Where shall you really appear?
is called to prepare for this great event. God told prophet Habakuk,
"write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that
readeth it" (Habak. 2:2). To be ready, we must follow that which is
written in the unfailing and unchanging word of God. We must abide by
what the scriptures say implicitly. And that is:- REPENTANCE:
is a very common word in the mouth of many these days. Whereas some take
that word "REPENT" serious others make a mockery of it, yet the eternal
“destiny of man could be said to depend on what we do with it. Jesus put
it clear. He said "unless you repent ye shall all likewise perish" (Lk.
13:3). In the book of Isaiah and Revelation, we read "Behold the day of
the Lord cometh, cruel both with wrath and fierce anger, to lay the land
desolate: and he shall destroy the sinners thereof out of it. For the
stars of heaven and the constellations thereof shall not give their
light; the sun shall be darkened in his going forth and the moon shall
not cause her light to shine. And I will PUNISH THE WORLD for their Evil
and the WICKED for their INIQUITY; and I will cause the arrogance of the
proud to cease, and will lay low the haughtiness of the terrible.... "
because they "repented not of the works of their hands, that they should
not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone,
and of wood; which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither REPENTED
they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their
fornication, nor of their thefts. (Isaiah 13:9911; Rev. 9:20-21.)
to see here the necessity of repentance and what we should repent from-
have to repent from our SINS.
FACT OF SIN.
word of God, we read from the book of Genesis, "In the beginning God
created the heaven and the earth, and God made man in his own image,
male and female .... and put them in the garden of Eden ... and
commanded them saying, of every tree of the garden you may freely eat,
but of the tree of knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it
for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die, ... but one day
the woman took the fruit and ate, she also gave her husband and he ate
too.. S0 the two disobeyed the law of their God, i.e sinned. (Genesis
chapters 1, 2 and 3).
disobedience (sin) brought many punishments and judgments’ upon them.
They died spiritually, became sinful in nature and physical death,
sickness and sufferings came on the mortal body. All these passed on his
descendants (which the whole world are). When man is born, he is born a
sinner by nature and this leads him to become a sinner by practice.
There is no righteousness in him at all until he is regenerated,
converted and born by the Holy Spirit of God and this does not happen
until man truly turns away from sin unto God. This is what repentance is
TURNING FROM SIN AND TURNING UNTO GOD THROUGH JESUS CHRIST. It is a
change of mind towards sin, leaving sin alone and not going back to them
change of attitude towards it. That is gospel repentance. When this is
done God forgives us all our sins and cleanses us with the blood of
Jesus. We obtain the life that is found in Christ (eternal life). One
also receives a new nature... A divine nature from God which will enable
him to live and do righteousness and be a temple for the Holy Spirit to
dwell in . This is the SEAL we are the sons and daughters of God and
belong to Christ (Eph. l 1: 13; 4:30). This is the first preparation for
Many people used to wander why God did not take them away after they
have repented; they wonder why God should still leave them in this
wicked world in the environment of sin. The reason is this … that you
might glorify Him in your body and your spirit through holy living …
walking as Jesus walked. Unfortunately holiness is relegated to the
background in the life of many Christians and most Pastors rarely
mention of it from the pulpit. Yet, it n remains a condition for us to
enter Heaven. I am saying, these ones may lose at last. I read a
testimony about a man of God and I will share it with, you. There is
this Pastor. He believes in holiness and preaches it to his
congregation without compromise, but every weekend there is a sister
from his church that always slept with him. This continued for some
while. One day as the Pastor was serving Holy Communion in the church,
a voice spoke to him and said "Pastor if you do not repent, you will go
to hell fire". He looked round and saw nobody. He continued to serve the
communion. The voice called to him again "Pastor if you don’t repent you
will go to hell fire". You see, God is no respecter of persons. No
matter whom we are, if we live in sin after we have come to the
knowledge of the truth, we will go to hell (Heb. 10:26-27; I Corinth.
you living your life? In holiness and righteousness? Do you still say it
doesn't matter? God says "be ye HOLY, for I AM HOLY (I Pet. 1:15) and
again "follow peace with all men and HOLINESS without which ~ no man
shall see-the Lord I (Heb. 12:14). Luke 1:74475 says "that he would
grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies·
might serve him without fear, IN HOLINESS and RIGHTEOUSNESS I before
him, all the days of I our life". Brethren, let us I separate ourselves
from i every form of sin for a little leaven, the Bible says, leavens
the whole lump. Let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the
flesh and spirit perfecting holiness in the fear of God, for Christ
shall appear the second time WITHOUT SIN unto salvation unto them that
look for him and everyone who has this hope in him purifies himself even
as he is pure (II Corinth. 7: 1; Heb. 9:28; I John 3:3). The whole
purpose of Christ's death and resurrection was to provide the power for
us to be partakers of His Divine Nature, live in VICTORY over all sin
all the days of our lives and be like Him. This is VICTORY, real
VICTORY that will carry us through time into eternity. I pray you have
it in Jesus name.
wish to give your life to Jesus sincerely pray this prayer from the
depth of your heart. Lord I know that I am a sinner, lost in the world,
without hope. Today I acknowledge that Jesus Christ died for my sins.
Lord, forgive me, cleanse me, purify me with the blood of Jesus now as I
confess my sins (Confess your sins) in Jesus name. Amen.
