Our Returning Lord
“When I saw him, I fell at his feet as though dead. Then he placed his right hand on me and said: “Do not be afraid. I am the First and the Last. I am the Living One; I was dead, and now look, I am alive for ever and ever! And I hold the keys of death and Hades.” Revelation 1:17-18 (NIV)
Don’t be afraid of getting face to face with Jesus because you can be at peace knowing He has been where you are and He is returning to end Satan’s reign. Doubters criticize Jesus from afar, but if they would only pause to look upon Him and grasp the fact that He is the One who was and is, and is to come, they would fall in humbleness before Him.
Jesus has the authority to forever end the injustices of this world, and soon He will. His return is soon and certain, just as assuredly as He came the first time to pay the price of forgiveness for sins He will come back a second time to redeem us.
Let’s pray today for our hearts to be at peace knowing that death and hell is at the mercy of our returning Lord.
