For the Son of Man will come with his angels in the glory of his Father and will judge all people according to their deeds. And I tell you the truth, some standing here right now will not die before they see the Son of Man coming in his Kingdom. Matthew 16:27-28 NLT
It might be any day now.
(Or, it could be years until He Returns.)
One thing I am certain of, He is coming again.
So, no matter when He comes, we His Followers keep following.
Keep your eyes on the clouds
Until He returns we are to keep looking up. Keep your eyes on the clouds, and while you are doing that, keep joyfully singing His praises.
Hallelujah! Yes, praise the Lord!
Praise him in his Temple and in the heavens he made with mighty power. Praise him for his mighty works. Praise his unequaled greatness. Praise him with the trumpet and with lute and harp. Praise him with the drums and dancing. Praise him with stringed instruments and horns. Praise him with the cymbals, yes, loud clanging cymbals.
Let everything alive give praises to the Lord! You praise him!
Hallelujah!PSALM 150 TLB
Keep your heart fixed in His Word
We are called as His Followers to stand on our faith. What comes out of my mouth reveals where I am standing. We walk by faith–NOT by sight. Yes, these are challenging times, but there have always been challenging times for those who believe and have their hope firmly fixed on His Word.
Fix your hope firmly on His promises, for He is faithful. His mercies are new EVERY morning.
May I never forget your words, for they are my only hope.PSALM 119:43 TLB
Keep your feet on His path
His Followers walk a narrow road. Their feet are fixed firmly on His path. His sheep know His voice and they follow.
He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along.PSALM 40:2 TLB
Later, in one of his talks, Jesus said to the people, “I am the Light of the world. So if you follow me, you won’t be stumbling through the darkness, for living light will flood your path.”JOHN 8:12
Keep your little light shining.
There is an old song that the Church jubilantly declares, “Soon, and very soon, we are going to see the King…”
In heaven a crown is waiting for me, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on that great day of his return. And not just to me but to all those whose lives show that they are eagerly looking forward to his coming back again.2 TIMOTHY 4:8 TLB
You are a child of the King!
Until He returns, keep following.
Soon, and very soon, we shall see our King.
