While people are saying ‘peace and safety’, destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you, brothers and sisters, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief. – 1 Thessalonians 5:3-4
There is great tension among the nations today. In many cases there is no diplomatic solution and statements to one another are more threatening than before.
Fear is growing in the hearts because of frightening events like earthquakes, hurricanes, floods, forest fires, nuclear threats, wars and famines. All these happenings point us to one thing and that is that Jesus is coming back!
The coming of Jesus
In Luke 21: 25-28, Jesus speaks about the signs of the sun, moon and stars. The nations will panic for the roaring and tossing of the sea. But then they will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with power and great glory.
Many people do not know that all these frightening events have to do with the coming of Jesus Christ.
One day, while it is still dark in the world, there will be a clear, white cloud: Jesus will come back to get His children. It is going to happen! Everything written in the Bible has happened or is going to happen soon. Jesus will come suddenly, on a day and hour that you do not expect. It is therefore important for you and me to always be ready for His coming. Are you ready to meet Him?
