The LORD's coming -- Rev. Dr. J. Samuel Sudhakar

Scripture : 'Behold, I come quickly; blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy...' Rev.22:7

The whole world is corrupt as in the days of Noah. The very thoughts and imagination of men are wicked. Sincerity and truth have become rare qualities. People want to live only for fame and prosperity. People are selfish and take care of their lives and family alone. They do not bother about perishing souls. But there are yet a handful of people who say 'Come, LORD Jesus, come soon.' Blessed are you when the LORD comes and He sees you keeping up the words of prophecy in the Holy Word.'

The Word of God teaches you and guides you that you and I will be prepared to meet the LORD. Life on this earth is preparation time. Those of God's children ordained and called by the LORD keep up their good life and their lives glorify the LORD. Many think because the LORD's coming is delayed they can live according to their own wishes. They have a feeling that Christ may not come soon but the LORD who said He will come will come very soon. His words will not come back void.

Read His Word every day. The LORD will give the necessary instructions to follow what is good and right in His sight. Dear believer of Christ, satan will pose before you as if the coming of the LORD is delayed. But you and I have to be steadfast preaching the LORD in season and out of season, leading a life pleasing to God, remembering that our names should be recorded in the Lamb's Book of Life. If you are holy and just, be more holy and just in the sight of God. Do not look at others but focus only on Jesus so that you become His blessed son or daughter to keep what is given to you. Decide your destiny.

Prayer : LORD, I will keep Your Word. Amen.

Thought for the Day : Be blessed in preparing ourselves to meet God.
