Get Ready For Christ’s Return… Joshua of Ghana

TEXT: LUKE 12:32-48

Key verse: “And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately” (Luke 12:36).

Each time a conversation gets to the direction of the return of Jesus Christ, many people are either dismissive, amused or unconcerned. This is because they think it is unlikely or if it will happen at all, that it would be in the distant future. In the process, they miss the essential lesson of ensuring that the Lord’s coming does not meet them unprepared.

Jesus Christ assures His disciples that almighty God has reserved a place in heaven for them. Believers should therefore, not misplace their priorities but jettison anything, including love of money, that could hinder their love, obedience and service to the Lord. They must allow their lives to shine brightly, while living in constant expectation of the imminent return of our Lord Jesus Christ so that when He comes, they would be ready. In fact, He would come when most people are not expecting Him.

Great blessings await those He will meet ready at His return. But those who fail to prepare for His coming and are consumed by the rat race, revelry and oppressive activities of the world, would suffer eternal separation from Him. Those that are ignorant of His advent will also face punishment; while those that knew but refused to get themselves ready, will get a more severe punishment.

This is a timely warning, especially in our present age when all talk about the return of Jesus Christ seem like fable to many. To be ready, you must not condone even the slightest sin in your life but shun all evil distractions of the world. You must diligently follow the Lord, faithfully engage in the service of winning and preparing souls for heaven and growing daily into the nature and stature of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: How ready are you to meet the Lord?

Matthew 24:5 “For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many.

See also Luke 21:8, Mark 13:6.

Here is a list of people since the 18th century who claimed to be Jesus. Most have proven to be finite. They are dead.

In recent years, Australia has been a hot bed for the second coming of Christ. The latest (July 2015) is Brian Marshall. He is married and 71 years old.

In 2013, AJ Miller of Australia claimed to be the incarnation of Jesus. His girlfriend, Mary Luck, is allegedly Mary Magdalene incarnated. He is around 50 years old.

Jesus has only one bride, the body of believers or His church. He is the head of the church (Colossians 1:18). Jesus has a contract to be married to His bride. The contract was paid with His blood on the cross (Acts 17:11, Acts 20:28, 1 Corinthians 6:20). See Ephesians 5 for the relationship between Jesus and the church. Jesus provides the model for marriage.

John 20:27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach here with your finger, and see My hands; and reach here your hand and put it into My side; and do not be unbelieving, but believing.”

After reviewing pictures of these two imposters, there were no scars on the hands or feet. They did not offer any evidence of a puncture wound to midsection. No scars were observed around the head from a crown of thorns.

Zechariah 14:4 In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which is in front of Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in its middle from east to west by a very large valley, so that half of the mountain will move toward the north and the other half toward the south.

I am still waiting for any of these hucksters to have a controlled descent out of the clouds without a parachute or safety device. Touch down safely on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, Israel. And mark your arrival with an earthquake. Crack the mountain in two pieces and create a new geographic feature. This would be guaranteed to make the news. It would go viral on YouTube.

Revelation 1:7 BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him; and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.
