And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am
Jesus promised (his followers) he is coming back to take us, that we may be with him where ever he is. As God, the promises of Jesus can obviously be trusted 100%. There is no doubt of his coming back, there is no doubt we will be with him. The question, however, is are we ready to welcome him when he comes? are we preparing for the coming of the king of kings? The day or the hour of his coming is not known and will never be made known to anyone. However, Revelation 16:15 says “Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”
Dear, are you awake? is your garment on? are you ready to welcome Jesus? We must always ponder on these questions and make ourselves ready for the coming of Jesus. We must practice true repentance… a repentance that consists of a total change of ways and not just an emotional prayer of forgiveness.
The promise made by Jesus belongs to a Holy people, people practicing true repentance.
Have you fallen in any way? Stand up, durst your body, confess to God and determining a total change. Because Jesus is coming to rapture a Holy church, we must be Holy.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I desire to be Holy, I desire to be ready for your coming, teach me how to work daily being ready for your coming. Amen
