Theme: What Time Is It?

Scripture : Romans 13:10-14

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now

is our salvation nearer than when we first believed; the night is far spent, the day

is at hand, let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the

armor of light!

 

Points To Ponder

We have talked about Jesus coming back for His children since I was a boy.

There’s a scripture that says “for since we first believed, they have been speaking

of His return!” so there are a lot of people who roll their eyes when we start

talking about Jesus coming back. But that doesn’t mean that He isn’t coming

back!

As you see the events in the world today, many talk about prophesy being

fulfilled. Wars in the East, fire, pestilence, earthquakes, child will rise up against

their parent, wars and rumors of war. All of it points to Christ’s eminent return!

But that’s not what I want you to get from this! The scripture says it is HIGH Time

to awake out of sleep, for our salvation is nearer than when we first believed!

That’s the part that gets me excited! Now is NOT the time to just sit around and

say “yeh, my parents told me Jesus was coming back, and He still hasn’t come

back!”

What you are missing is…it is nearer than ever before..don’t quit looking

now…Now is our salvation nearer!

The Night is far spent—look around—this is Not meant to get any better. I’ve read

the end of the book…it’s going to continue to get worse and worse…that’s the

plan…be excited about that because it reinforces that He is coming back to get

us, to Catch Us Away.. that’s what the word Rapture means “a catching away!”

It’s High time for Holiness! Don’t get lax in your worship and devotion and living a

consecrated life! Now is NOT the time to give up your stand for what’s right and

lower your standard to the level that others around you are.

Don’t compare your dedication to the Lord to what others around you are doing.

Compare your dedication to what the Lord has done for you!

Now is the time to prepare for the coming of the Lord.

No matter who said it before us—it’s is More true Today than Ever Before!

Jesus is coming back for those looking for Him to return.

Don’t quit looking just before He comes!

Your salvation is nearer than ever before.

Get excited, Get motivated! Get Ready!

Let’s Pray Together

Jesus, forgive me for becoming lax about your return. I want to look forward to

you coming back every day. I want to wake up and say “Lord, could it be today?”

and believe in my heart that… it really could be! Please make me ready, make me

worthy, make me prepared. May I do what’s right in your eyes and not settle for

what’s right in the eyes of those around me. I want to get ready. I want to stay

ready. I want to be ready.

Even so Lord Jesus, come quickly…Maranatha!

Amen
