PREPARE FOR HIS SOON RETURN! ~ PASTOR CHRIS OYAKHILOME.
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
Jesus died for the sins of the whole world; He didn’t die for nothing, neither did He die a religious death. Sometime after His resurrection, He ascended to heaven. But before He ascended, He promised to come again. Prepare your life for the soon coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. He’s coming for a Church without spot, without wrinkle, or any blemish; a Church that’s holy and undefiled, a Church that’s living in faith, walking in faith, walking in the Word of God, and manifesting the realities of the Kingdom.
This is why we’re preaching and must continue to preach the Gospel with all fervency. The Bible says because of the salvation of one soul, there’s joy in heaven (Luke 15:7). So, let’s not be passive or complacent about the Gospel. It’s what we live for; it’s what your life is for! God left us here to win souls to Christ. Make up your mind to be what God raised you to be, and to fulfil His dream. Don’t live for nothing; don’t live for yourself. Live for Him. Stand strong in Him, because He’s made you a victor in this life.
Be alert and alive because Christ Jesus has given you power over all devils. He’s given you power over fear; be not afraid of anything. And when He comes again, we’d bring our sheaves with us; we’d present all that we have won to Him, and He’d say, “Well done thou good and faithful servant; enter into the joy of thy Lord” (Matthew 25:21). That’s what our singing is for, our worship, our giving; that’s what everything we do is for: the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ!
