The Good Seed - Tuesday, December 3, 2019

Details


The Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout. … And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.
1 Thessalonians 4:16.17

The rapture of the believers
This will be an extraordinary and unique occurrence: the Lord will descend from heaven and, without putting His feet on the earth that rejected Him, will call with authority all whom He has redeemed. Believers who are dead will be raised, those living will be transformed in a moment. And all together, in new, glorified bodies, will be caught up to the clouds to meet the Lord, who will bring them into the Father’s house (1 Corinthians 15, 51 – 53).

Can we imagine the anguish and consternation of those who, suddenly and without seeing anything, affirm the disappearance of parents, friends or neighbours? Maybe you have heard of Christ’s return and the judgment to come.

The day of God’s grace will end as suddenly as that. Will those left on the earth have time to turn to Him? No, that will be impossible, as Jesus indicated in the parable. Only those who were ready entered, “and the door was shut” (Matthew 25, 10).

Are you ready? Have you turned to Jesus, the Saviour, to receive the forgiveness of your sins? There is still time to ensure being found among those to be raised at Christ’s return, but the time available may be measured in years, months, or only minutes!

“Today, if you will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts” (Hebrews 4, 7).

Today’s reading: 2 John vv. 1 – 13
