Behold, He is Coming

Bobby –
“Behold, He is coming!”
“And behold, I am coming quickly.”
“Behold, I am coming quickly.”

“Surely, I am coming quickly.”
Behold, meaning, pay attention, or even, “HEY! Listen up, this is important.”
The Lord has made His home in our hearts. He has given us His Holy Spirit and become to us the God of all comfort, the author and finisher of our faith and our sure, sure reward. His promises are so sure that their fulfillment seem to come in advance of His arrival. But this place, destined for fire, contains these almost-former things: death, sorrow, crying and pain. All of creation groans and we groan too for the day when He will come and wipe away every tear from our eyes and bring to an end these things that are passing away. It is a marvelous promise, isn’t it? Let it sink in, please. “Behold, I am coming.”
The Christian life is lived by faith, not by sight. Our hearts beat for invisible things that are to become visible and our hope is in a Person who we cannot see right now, but who promises His worshippers that He is coming. Therefore, in light of His promise, let us put off the former things and continue to live today and everyday in the newness of life found in the Lord Jesus Christ.
Yours in Christ.
Further contemplation: He went into a far country to get His bride and returned to His Father’s house to prepare a room for us. Soon He will come back to get us. But THEN he is going to take us and present us to His Father. (Jude 24.)
