WFW - He is coming back

But do not forget this one thing dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like a day. 
The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. Instead He is patient with you not wanting anyone to perish but everyone to come to repentance.
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar: the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare.
Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and Godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming. 2 Peter 3:8-12


The Holy Spirit impressed an idea upon my heart that I carried out last weekend. I had a group of ladies over to my home that didn't know each other, but knew the Lord, to have dinner, watch a DVD and then have a discussion on it. We watched a Dvd about the first few moments after the rapture of the church. Even though the food was good and the fellowship even better, the most important part of that evening was the fact that many of us were reminded that JESUS IS COMING BACK, SOON. It sent us into a session of worship that was unbelievable.

It has been on my mind since then and so today I want to encourage all of us to focus on that fact. Whatever life looks like for you now, set your affection, your heart, your very being on the fact that Jesus will soon return. Whatever you do for your self, your family, friends and even strangers, let that be the filter you do it all through.  It may seem like a long time coming, but He is waiting since He doesn't want anyone to perish. He promised it and HE is not slack concerning His promises.

JESUS IS COMING BACK, SOON.

Blessings,
Vickie

Have a great WFW everyone.

This is a beautiful post. I don't want Christ to come back too soon though because there are still those I love who have no yet accept Him into their lives.

It makes me prayer even harder for them.

I so appreciate your post about the soon return of Christ. I think there are a lot of Christians who are lukewarm, complacent, unaware. Calling attention, like you have done here, is a wake up call to someone. He is coming soon. Come Lord Jesus!

Terri Tiffany said...
