End times – Jesus comes and we are gathered
Mark 13:26 “At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27 And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens.”
The Anti-Christ comes with destruction, fear abounds and it looks hopeless. But he ends not with a bang but a whimper for he is eclipsed by the Son of Man.
Edgar Whisenant wrote ’88 reasons for 1988’ predicting the date of the rapture in that year to be between September 11 and 13th. Amazingly 4.5 million copies were sold! He stated, ‘Only if the Bible is in error am I wrong. ‘ Hmm!
Throughout history angels and men have asked ‘how long?’ and ‘when will you come?’ But there is no answer. What we are told is He will come and He will gather.
Days of distress and death is not the end.
Job 19: 25-26 “I know that my redeemer lives, and that in the end he will stand on the earth. 26 And after my skin has been destroyed, yet in my flesh I will see God”
Job knew there was more than the suffering he was going through.
Jesus says there is more than the days of distress.
There is more than just existing on this earth for a set amount of years.
We are made for something else, somewhere else, for someone else.
He is coming on the clouds and will gather us to be with Him.
When and how? Who cares that much when you are just relieved and excited He is coming!
The last words of the Bible “I am coming soon!” this is all we need to know!
