Nearer Than Ever

The journey of a milion kilometres starts with a first step.So long it commences,the distance to cover reduces with each step taken forward.By so doing,the destination becomes nearer than when started.It is more reasonable to be interested in the nearness of the end of the journey than the ground already covered because in this lies the rest of the traveller.
To an athlete,the starting line is not so much important to him as the finishing line in running a race.He concentrates on the remaining distance as soon as he starts.The finishing line is the ultimate to him.
However,in the journey of life,human beings have reversed the forward looking role.It is a general knowledge that the Son of God who became the Son of man so that the sons of man may become the sons of God came into this sinful world more than two thousands years ago and He left with a promise,
‘In my father’s house are many mansions,if it were not so,I would have told you.I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you,I will come again and receive you to myself;that where I am,there you may be also.’ John14:2-4.
This promise has been a subject of controversy among people.Many wonder why He has not come since more than two thousands of years ago.
Should man be concerned about the past years or the remaining few years before He comes and what will he will from Him when He comes? Many have wrongly and dangerously concluded that the Son of Man,Jesus Christ is not coming again.Some erroneously misinterprete the reason for this.Be assured that Jesus Christ is coming again to take the saints who follow Him away.He has declared it and it will be so.He reveals,
‘And this Gospel of the Kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations,and the end will come.’ Matthew24:14.
He will not come again until every nation has heard the Gospel.There are some that have not heard ;yet,they must hear it as a witness to them.
Your coming across this piece is an opportunity for you to hear the Goodnews that a Saviour had been born long ago who had paid for your sins.Only repent of your sins and forsake them.Or to strengthen your faith,if you have been expecting His second coming.
He has not COME AGAIN because many people are not BORN AGAIN.There are many who must be BORN AGAIN before He COMES AGAIN.
After this, He counsels you to
‘Watch therefore,for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming.’ Matthew 24:42.
You do not know the hour when Jesus Christ will come again,watch,pray and wait for your rewards from Him because He said,
‘And behold,I am coming quickly,and My reward is with Me,to give to every one according to his work.’ Revelation 22:12
May God bless you as you confess,repent,forsake your sins and wait patiently for His second coming.
