Have you noticed how important signs are for us? On a daily basis we need them to help us to navigate our schedules and destinations. Just think what would happen if we didn’t have them?
It would be chaos!
From roads, airports, cities, trains, street signs and menus, all are utilized on a daily basis. We need them as they help us function.
So if signs are important for our lives, how much more is it we know the signs of Jesus’ coming?
Just like how signs guide us daily, these signs will guide us on how we live and what we do. This is important because as events happen around us, we can have peace in us as our anchor is Jesus!
Here’s the good news, Jesus is coming!
Through all this chaos, God is setting the stage for the end events! This not only includes Jesus coming for us, but also a great move of His spirit, that will draw in the masses to Him.
So what are these signs?
“4. Jesus told them, “Don’t let anyone mislead you, 5. for many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Messiah.’ They will deceive many. 6. And you will hear of wars and threats of wars, but don’t panic. Yes, these things must take place, but the end won’t follow immediately. 7. Nation will go to war against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. 8. But all this is only the first of the birth pains, with more to come.”Matthew 24:4-8
Notice how these are taking right NOW.
A variety of people say they are Jesus and they’re lying. Then, we’re hearing of wars, threats of wars, nation against nation, famines, and earthquakes but DON’T PANIC!
We saw an earthquake hit Haiti a couple of weeks ago. Then, we’re seeing the tragedy in Afghanistan; moreover, we have the global pandemic and political tension. These are just some of things out of many we see around us, but they mean something. Jesus is coming!
I love how we don’t have to panic because we have Jesus. So, we don’t have be fearful because they are setting the stage of God fulfilling His plan! Even though things are chaotic, God is in charge and in the end, we win through Jesus!
So what do we do with these signs?
We have our anchor be Jesus! This means, above everything else, our lives are built on Christ! Nothing else will save us, fulfill us or deliver us. Our hope is in Christ, period.
This means, above everything else, our lives are built on Christ!
Right now, it’s easy to panic and be fearful. It’s easy to be distracted and caught up in a temporary mess but there’s something better. It’s Jesus!
I encourage you, move forward in what matters most, Jesus. Move forward with understanding what the signs of His coming mean and stay focused on what matters most, God. This is what we must do and this is what will guide us through the chaos around us.
So today, look up, your salvation is near!
Have a great day and the best is yet to come,
