This same Jesus…

Acts 1: 10-11

10 And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was going, behold, two men in white clothing stood beside them. 11 They also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into heaven.”

The angels told His disciples, “This Jesus…”, will come again! What a truth and a promise! Jesus had told them that He would come and receive them unto Himself one day and this saying from the angels confirms this. Many years before the book of Revelation was written, we confirm His second coming and where He will be when He sets foot on Earth again. 

We know that His word is true because of the predictions and prophecies that He fulfilled in His first “coming”. The statement of His second “coming” in regards to His setting foot on the Mount of Olives is a prophecy that I am looking forward to witnessing. God’s Kingdom coming to Earth and being ruled by Jesus for a thousand years is a fulfillment of prophecy that I am anxious to see and be a part of.

So much has happened in the past thirty years of my life. I got married to a wonderful woman. We had a child, my son, who I thank God for every day. I became a pastor of a small church and I got to know my Savior more intimately than I thought possible through His Word. There have been other blessings that the Lord has blessed me with that are more than I can include here but I am thankful for them all.

The world is changing rapidly and coming to the end of this age much faster than I thought possible but God is in control and I know that it is part of His plan. What is next? I’m not sure but I am sure of Him and His love for us. We will see, and I think much sooner than most would believe, what God has prepared for our eternity.

Some may ask if this is just a dream of mine or just some fantasy that I have dreamed up while reading the Bible? It is neither. I look forward to the prize of my Savior and Lord and I humbly lay my crown and my blessings down at His feet because I could not be more blessed than I am with my family and with Him. The world would only see the material things in my life but I am looking for the reward that is not seen here but it is in my home in eternity. Thank you, Lord.
