When Jesus Comes

Hymn: One sat alone beside the highway begging

1 One sat alone beside the highway begging,His eyes were blind, the light he could not see; He clutched his rags and shivered in the shadows,Then Jesus came and bade his darkness flee.
When Jesus comes the tempter’s pow’r is broken;When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away. He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.
2 From home and friends the evil spirits drove him,Among the tombs he dwelt in misery; He cut himself as demon pow’rs possessed him,Then Jesus came and set the captive free.
When Jesus comes the tempter’s pow’r is broken;When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away. He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.
3 “Unclean! unclean!” the leper cried in torment,The deaf, the dumb, in helplessness stood near; The fever raged, disease had gripped its victim,Then Jesus came and cast out every fear.
When Jesus comes the tempter’s pow’r is broken;When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away. He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.
4 Their hearts were sad as in the tomb they laid him,For death had come and taken him away; Their night was dark and bitter tears were falling,Then Jesus came and night was turned to day.
When Jesus comes the tempter’s pow’r is broken;When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away. He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.
5 So men today have found the Savior able,They could not conquer passion, lust and sin; Their broken hearts had left them sad and lonely,Then Jesus came and dwelt, Himself, within.
When Jesus comes the tempter’s pow’r is broken;When Jesus comes the tears are wiped away. He takes the gloom and fills the life with glory,For all is changed when Jesus comes to stay.

It is one of my most significant responsibilities in life to be a parent to my two children. I wish for each of them to be well, happy, and blessed, as well as to have a strong relationship with the Almighty. However, even while I do all in my power to satisfy the needs of my children, there are times when they require a miracle – something that only God can supply for them. When I’m in a similar situation, I think of a father named Jairus, who came to Jesus because his daughter was sick, and whom Jesus healed.

  • Jairus, on the other hand, was aware that his daughter had a need that could only be met by Jesus.
  • 23).
  • In order to receive a cure or other miracle, we may believe that we must manipulate God’s will.
  • When we come to Him in trust, He takes great pleasure in satisfying our needs.
  • Before He got to Jairus’ house, a group of people arrived and delivered the dreadful news: “Your daughter has died.” “What’s the point of bothering the Teacher any longer?” (See also v.
  • However, the tale of Jairus’ daughter was not yet complete — and neither is your story at this point.
  • Hearing this awful news, Jesus addressed the grieving father with a profound statement: “Do not be scared; only believe” (v.

A book might be written to explain the wisdom of Jesus’ statements, but let me just state one thing: God wants to replace your FEAR with FAITH in this situation.

The ability to maintain your trust in God’s faithfulness and the reality of His Word is critical when confronted with Satan’s deceiving “proof.” It goes without saying that the story of Jairus’ daughter had a happy conclusion.

When Jesus came, he discovered the dead girl surrounded by a throng of people who were sobbing and lamenting.

However, the good news is that Jesus is prepared to push through the darkness and despair, giving resurrection vitality to even those things that had previously appeared to be beyond hope!

Nothing more than speaking life to Jairus’ daughter was required of Him: “Little child, I say to you, arise” (v.

All it needed was a single word.

3 Ways You Can Be Ready When Jesus Comes Back

Allow me to pose a question to you. When was the last time you pondered when Jesus will return and whether or not he would return? In your opinion, when was the last time you received a message regarding the approaching return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ? As my church has been going through a process of learning to hear what God is saying to us today and seeking Him to bring true Spirit-led revival to our community and nation, I was reminded of one of the aspects of revival that was present 30 years ago during the height of the Jesus people movement, which was the last move of God that we experienced.

This revival brought back to mind one aspect of it that I had forgotten: the belief and expectation that the Second Coming of Jesus may occur at any time.

We speculated on what the Lord might find us doing when he returns to judge the world. If it does, I hope it will reawaken in you a yearning and expectation for that day to arrive, so that we might exclaim with the Apostle John, “Even as you have come soon, Lord Jesus.”

3 Things To Help You Be Prepared For When Jesus Comes Back

In Matthew’s gospel chapter 25, Jesus speaks of ten virgins who are awaiting the arrival of their bridegroom. MATTHEW 25:1-13 “Then the Kingdom of Heaven will be like ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom,” Matthew 25:1-13 says. 2 There were five fools and five clever people among them. Third, just enough olive oil for their lamps was brought by the five who were foolish; nevertheless, the other five were intelligent enough to bring additional oil with them. 5 They all felt weary and fell asleep when the bridegroom was late for the wedding.

8 After that, the five stupid ones approached the others and requested, ‘Please give us some of your oil since our lights are about to burn out.’ 9 “However, the others responded, ‘We don’t have enough food for all of us.’ ” Get some for yourselves by going to a store.’ 10 “However, while they were away purchasing oil, the bridegroom arrived.

  1. ‘Lord!
  2. Let us in!’ Open the door for us!
  3. “You, too, must keep a close eye on things!
  4. In this tale, Jesus is admonishing us to expect the unexpected.
  5. It was the ignorant ones who did not anticipate Jesus to come in the middle of the night or that He would be delayed in any way.
  6. Many people believe that the oil depicts the Holy Spirit at this time.
  7. I reminded the congregation of how they used to look forward to the day when they would finally tie the knot with their soul mate.

A similar situation exists with regard to our level of expectation in regards to the return of Jesus Christ.

Are we looking forward to and anticipating the arrival of that day?

What is your degree of expectation in terms of life?

This idea was conveyed in our youth group by doing dumb things that were intended to be amusing.

LOL Now, it was all in good fun, but at the same time, we were persuaded that Jesus would return in the near future.

The expectation, on the other hand, was not completely incorrect.

To love Him completely, we must be waiting at the door and looking down the road, expecting His chariot to appear around the corner at any moment. And we need to have that sense of expectation fueled by a lamp that is filled with oil.

2 Be Prepared For When Jesus Comes Back

In the nineteenth chapter of the Book of Revelations, the Apostle John provides a stunning depiction of our destiny. THE BOOK OF Revelation (19:6–8) It sounded like the cry of a large crowd, or like the thundering of gigantic ocean waves, or like the crash of thunder: “Praise the Lord!” I heard it again and again. Because the Lord our God, the Almighty, is in control. 7 Let us be joyful and rejoice, and let us honor him with our actions. Because the time has come for the Lamb’s wedding feast, and his bride has begun to prepare for the occasion.

  • I urged my congregation to recall all of the preparations that had gone into the wedding ceremony once more, and they did.
  • What color is your hair?
  • Everything has to be absolutely flawless.
  • That is the same motivation we must have for our relationship with Jesus.
  • What we do and how we live our lives on this planet are the means by which we prepare ourselves to meet Him in the hereafter.
  • Having said that, I don’t want anyone to go into a performance-oriented frame of mind.
  • We are making a sacrifice for Jesus’ sake.
  • If you’re a Christian, when was the last time you considered being that lovely present to Jesus, just as a bride is a gift to the groom?
  • What are the virtuous deeds that you are beautifying yourself with in preparation for your wedding day?
  • You are responsible for organizing the event.

3 Be Loved By Jesus And In Love With Jesus

In the fifth chapter of the book of Ephesians, the Apostle Paul exposes a mystery to us. EPHESIANS 5:22-32 is a biblical passage. For wives, this means that you should submit to your husbands as if they were the Lord. Because a husband is the head of his wife in the same way that Christ is the head of the church, 23 He is the Saviour of his own body, which is called the church. 24 In the same way that the church submits to Christ, you women should submit to your husbands in all things as well.

  1. In order to make her holy and clean, he sacrificed his life for her 26 and bathed her with the purification of God’s word.
  2. As a result, she will be blameless and without flaw.
  3. Because a guy who loves his wife also loves himself, he demonstrates love for himself.
  4. 30 And we are members of his body, just as he is.
  5. In marriage, this is a well-known text that is often used to teach about the nature of partnerships.

On the other hand, Paul clearly states that he is speaking about Christ and the church. There are several things that you need to take away from this chapter and apply to your own life right now. You must grasp the significance of.

  1. Christ has such a deep love for you that He is willing to sacrifice himself for you. When I say Jesus loves you personally, I am not referring to Jesus loving the world, or Jesus loving children, or Jesus loving preachers, or Jesus loving those who are highly religious. Instead, I am referring to the fact that Jesus loves you personally, and He loves you so much that He gave and continues to give Himself for you personally. It is the most incredible love that a person can possibly receive, and it is exactly what you must provide. You must accept it before you can use it. It is not something that can be earned or purchased. You must just accept it, regardless of whether or not you believe you are deserving
  2. Jesus is at work transforming you into a gorgeous bride without a stain or wrinkle in His sight. He is preparing you to be the most beautiful bride that you have ever been
  3. Jesus loves you more than He loves His own flesh and blood. He cares about you enough to provide for and appreciate you. Your worth in His eyes is not based on your appearance, but on your character
  4. He has no eyes for anybody else but you.

Approximately one year after going through the agony of divorce, I was experiencing a spiritual crisis in my personal life. They were unhappy with me, I was alone, and I was angry with myself for failing as well as with God for not keeping an eye on my back. In the aftermath of my failed marriage, I blamed myself for everything. I was raised as a Christian. It was never intended for me to be divorced. Divorce is not something I should have done as a pastor, since pastors are not meant to go through it.

  • I was also enraged with God because He had not responded to my prayers and had not resolved the matter.
  • The time came when I was so depressed, frustrated, and unloved that I actually considered driving my semi-truck off a mountainside on a snowy day.
  • It was only a short time later that I felt the gentle tap of the Lord on the back of my shoulder, and He inquired of me.
  • Then I responded with the words, “You are meant to love me unconditionally, Lord.” Which prompted Him to respond, “Then why do you despise what I cherish?” Thud!
  • Not only did I come to terms with the fact that I was loved, but I also fell in love with Christ all over again.
  • Do you realize that Jesus loves you on a personal level?
  • What state of readiness do you have for the return of Christ, your bridegroom?
  • Blessings Pastor Duke is a man of God.

To Dig Deeper Into This Topic, We Recommend

In one popular argument to Christianity, non-Christians assert that because Christians think Jesus is returning soon and that He has not returned, it follows that He will not return at all. Today, many people associate the phrase “coming soon” with the act of driving through the drive-thru at their favorite fast-food restaurant. They thus believe that Jesus will return in a short period of time when asked the question “Is Jesus coming back soon?” When Jesus talked of His return, He used the word “soon” rather than the word “immediately,” implying that He would return in the near future.

“Come, Lord Jesus,” the choir sings.

When Is the ‘Soon’ for Jesus’ Return

The Greek word for “soon” is tachu, which may be rendered as “as soon as possible” or “without undue delay.” Throughout the New Testament, the word tachu is most frequently used in the Book of Revelation (Revelation 2:16; 3:11; 11:14; 22:7,12,20). By “soon,” we mean that the sovereign events of history have been put in action, ensuring that Christ’s coming will take place without any additional delay. Thus, history is progressing in accordance with God’s schedule, who is in complete command of the entire historical narrative.

Speaking about Christ’s second coming, Peter writes in 2 Peter 3:9 that the Lord is not slow to fulfill his word as some regard it as such, but is patient with you, not desiring for any to perish but for all to come to repentance.

The Lord Jesus’ return is imminent — in the sense that the plan of God is progressing and is only being postponed so that the elect may be rescued (Romans 8:29;Ephesians 1:5).

The Return of the Lord Jesus Is Imminent

This means that the Lord Jesus’ return is not only impending, as we must comprehend, but it is also immediate in the sense that it might occur at any time. The apostles even speculated that the Lord Jesus’ return would occur within their lifetime, referring to the Lord Jesus’ return as occurring in the end days (1 Corinthians 10:11; 1 Peter 1:20; Hebrews 1:2), and urging the people of God to be prepared and on the lookout for signs and wonders. Because Jesus employed the language of being “ready,” He means for the people of God to think that He is about to return at any moment (Luke 12:40; 21:34-36;Mark 13:33).

  • Jesus desires that every generation live in the consciousness that He may visit unexpectedly and that all individuals will be required to give an account of how they will locate them when He does.
  • In Acts 1:7, Jesus reiterates the teachings of Matthew 24:36, in which he tells the disciples, “It is not for you to know the times or seasons which the Father has determined by his own power.” Jesus said this when the disciples inquired as to whether or not He intended to rebuild Israel.
  • Anyone who believes in Christ is able to predict when He will return, because Scripture is quiet on the specific day and time of His return.
  • Christians, on the other hand, are instructed to “.remain alert, for you do not know on when day your Lord will come” (Matthew 24:42).
  • According to the teachings of Matthew 24:36-44, no one can predict the day or time of the Lord Jesus’ second coming.
  • Despite the fact that several dates have been offered, all of them have been and will continue to be incorrect.
  • It is reasonable to conclude from Matthew 24:36 and Acts 1:7 that God does not wish for Christians to calculate the precise day or hour of Christ’s return, and that anybody who attempts to do so is deceived by the Scriptures.

What is essential is that the people of God live their lives in light of the Lord Jesus’ approaching return to earth (2 Timothy 4:8).

The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus

The Second Coming of the Lord Jesus is referenced 1,500 times in the Old Testament, and one out of every twenty-five verses in the New Testament makes reference to the Lord Jesus’ Second Coming, which is a significant number. When it states in Amos 3:7, “For the Lord God does nothing but reveal his secret to his servants the prophets,” this passage draws attention to this topic. What Amos says is important because it helps Christians comprehend that the return of Christ heralds the establishment of God’s Kingdom, which is defined as God’s total authority over all of His creation.

  • The book of Revelation 19:11-16 describes how the Lord will be prepared for battle, and how the nations will gather to fight against the city of Jerusalem.
  • Furthermore, this will be the day that the Bible predicts in Revelation 19:6-7, when the enemies of God, including the Antichrist and the false prophet, will be completely vanquished (Revelation 19:20).
  • Jesus will judge those who are living at the time of His Second Coming as part of the process of establishing His Kingdom.
  • A thousand years of peace will be enjoyed by those who survive this judgment as a result of their trust in Jesus Christ.
  • (Matthew 25:41).
  • In addition, there will be a resurrection of all Christians (Revelation 20:4-6).
  • At the conclusion of the thousand-year period, Satan will be freed, and a final fight will take place, which will be conquered by the Lord Jesus Christ on the spot (Revelation 20:7-9).
  • Then there will be a second resurrection, followed by another judgment.

Two Different Eternities

There are two eternal fates, one with the Lord Jesus and one without Him, as a result of the Lord Jesus’ return being a reality (Malachi 4:1-2). When the Lord Jesus returns, evil will be destroyed, the planet will be restored, and the Lord will triumph! If you believe in the first coming of the Lord Jesus, your response to his return will reveal whether or not you believe in the second coming of the Lord Jesus. Christian believers have a great hope in that they will not only be admitted to heaven, but that they will also be with the Lord Jesus for all of eternity in heaven.

Your response, dear reader, to the topic “Is Jesus Coming Back Soon?” is critical because it expresses your understanding of the Lord Jesus’ first coming as well as your understanding of His finished and adequate work.

We Are Not Promised Tomorrow

We cannot guarantee tomorrow, and the Lord knows not just the number of hairs on your head or the content of your thoughts at any one time, but also the length of all of your days. God longs for your repentance, for you to turn back to Him, and for you to put your confidence in Christ – because Jesus is mighty to save by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone — and that is why He sent His Son to die for you. You must not cower in fear, but instead must stand firm on the Lord Jesus and proclaim the glory of Christ to everyone.

Will Jesus Really Return to Earth?

As Christians, we gladly proclaim that Jesus Christ will, in fact, return to the world again and again. It’s critical for us to remember that Jesus Himself stated that He will return to the world at some point. His disciples gathered on the Mount of Olives when He spoke to them, and He promised them that He would come in might and great splendor. According to the angels, Jesus Christ would return. As mentioned in Acts Chapter 1, when Jesus ascends to His Father, angels appear and proclaim, “He will return in the same manner that He has gone.” When you look at church history, one of the intriguing things you will see is that, although though various Christians throughout church history have had diverse viewpoints on the end of time, they have always agreed on some fundamental truths concerning the end of the world.

  1. And one of them was the belief that Jesus Christ will return to the planet.
  2. It is the belief that Jesus Christ will physically return to the planet.
  3. And, finally, that Jesus Christ will bring about a restoration and a fresh beginning in the world.
  4. All of these considerations are critical.
  5. It’s even a part of the Apostles’ Creed, which was written in the fourth century.
  6. He will then return to judge both the living and the dead once His time on earth is through.
  7. Is it possible that Jesus will return?
  8. Not unwillingly because we believe, “Oh, He’s going to return,” but joyously, we as Christians proclaim this truth.

Even so, come, Lord Jesus, since Jesus Christ will truly return. Credit: iStock/Getty Images Plus/Tinnakorn for the photo. Jorruang Dave Jenkins and his wife, Sarah Jenkins, are in a happy marriage. He is a writer, editor, and public speaker who resides in the lovely state of Oregon.

When Jesus Comes

“WHEN THE LORD COMES” In the words of the Lord, “Well done, good and loyal servant.enter into the joy of thy Lord.” (Matthew 25:21; Mark 12:21) INTRO.: ‘When Jesus Comes,’ a hymn from the New Testament that reminds us that when the Lord arrives, those who have been good and faithful servants will be welcomed into the joy of the Lord, is an excellent example ( 653 inHymns for Worship Revised). James Washington Gaines wrote the book, and he also created the music, both of which are included in this collection (1881-1937).

Another of Gaines’ well-known tunes is “Take My Hand and Lead Me,” which is followed by “In That Home of the Soul” and the music to the song “You Never Mentioned Him to Me.” “When Jesus Arrives” (not to be confused with the Fanny Crosby song “Will Jesus Find Us Watching,” which starts, “When Jesus comes to reward His workers”) is one of the hymns released by members of the Lord’s church for use in churches of Christ and is found in several hymnbooks.

  4. I.
  5. Once again, when Jesus returns to gather His followers, And a crown is given to the righteous, and I long to hear Him say, “My servant, well done,” and for his soul to experience the delights of paradise.
  1. A day will come when Jesus will return to collect His own: 1 Thessalonians 4:13-17
  2. After that, those who have remained steadfast in the face of temptation will be awarded a crown: 1:12
  3. Jas. 1:12
  4. In addition, they will hear Him say, “Enter in,” as recorded in Matthew 25:34.

II. The second stanza instructs us on how to prepare for His return. I want to teach everyone the narrative of love, so that they may know His forgiveness without cost, and that they may receive a crown of triumph before His throne in splendor above.

  1. We need to share the message of love to everyone through teaching others as well as ourselves: 2 Tim. 2:2
  2. 2 Tim. 3:2
  3. 2 Of course, both we and them must be aware of His unconditional pardon: Isa. 55:7
  4. Isa. 55:8
  5. And in order to receive the crown of victory, we must remain faithful: 2:10
  6. Rev. 2:11

III. Stanza 3 informs us why He is coming back to earth. I believe he’ll return with his jewels to collect them, and they’ll be granted eternal rest;’ To know that those who come in His name will be included among the blessed is a comforting realization.

  1. When Jesus returns, He will claim his jewels, which are as follows: Mal. 3:17
  2. These are the ones who will be granted eternal rest: They shall be counted among the blessed or redeemed of all ages, according to Hebrews 4:8-9. Revelation 7:9-10

IV. Stanza 3 informs us of the day on which He will return. I do not know when my Savior will return, but I must be prepared to meet Him when He does. If I am ready, He will claim me as His own, and that is sufficient assurance for me.

  1. We have no way of knowing when the Savior will appear: Matthew 24:36
  2. As a result, we must be prepared as follows: Jesus says in Matthew 24:44 that if we are ready, He will summon us to the resurrection of life. 5:28-29
  3. Jn. 5:28-29

The chorus (which I generally leave out) speaks of the Christian’s desire to see Christ return, which I think is a good thing. I want to know that He will welcome me there; I don’t want to be turned away; I want to meet Him in that beautiful city; and I want to be there forever with Him. This tune was included in the first edition of Hymns for Worship under the heading “Special Selections,” which included the following note: “This part has been created for songs with more challenging music and a distinct textual style.” Every congregation and user is free to determine whether or not these options are valuable to them.

I do not recall ever being in a congregation where this song was sung, but after listening to it, I am not certain that it is a song that could be performed well in most congregations owing to the more challenging music and textual style, particularly in the chorus.

Nonetheless, there is nothing unscriptural about the words, and we must keep in mind that it is critical to be prepared “When Jesus Returns.”

Uncle Sinner – When Jesus Comes

“Our minister delivered a sermon on Hell on Sunday morning, and I was not pleased with it in the least. As you can see, I do not believe the Bible emphasizes the importance of Hell.” Now, take note that the New Testament contains a total of 264 chapters. And God mentions eternal punishment 234 times in the Bible, which is nearly once in every chapter (see note 1). Jesus Christ spoke more of Hell than he did of Heaven in his teachings. Tell me what you intend to do when Jesus returns. What are you planning to do when Jesus returns?

Will you give him your seat, or will you refuse to give him your seat?

” What are your thoughts on the followers of Jesus?” Your minister has my full support.

“I’m not sure what I should do about the Jesus people.” Tell me where you intend to flee when Jesus returns.

Will you postpone your decision until another day?

When Jesus comes, where will you flee to?” They appear to be experiencing happiness that I am not experiencing in my church; I would love to attend their meetings, but my parents do not agree.

I support your minister in every way.

(God mentions the possibility of eternal punishment.) Who are you going to fall in love with when Jesus returns?

Is it possible that you’ll be a little too buzzed?

That is unfortunate because you do not experience the same happiness in your church that you do within the Jesus movement.

Your minister has my full support.

Who will you be in love with when Jesus returns?
