“Therefore rejoice ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhibiters of the earth and of the seal for the devil is come down to you having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time” (Revelation 12:12, in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
My husband was in the Air Force when we met. The military personnel used terms and words that civilians may not understand. One of the words I often heard used by his friends was the word ‘short’. The term did not refer to stature. It was used to describe how many days they had left until they would be leaving.
The devil knows his time is short and he is working overtime to wreak havoc on this world. I have news for him; Jesus is coming and my time is short here. I’m looking for the return of Jesus in the air!
Prayer: I pray, “Even so come, Lord Jesus.” This world is not getting better, it’s only getting worse. But, I have a hope, a beautiful hope of Your return for Your Church. I’m packed up and ready to leave this world. In Jesus Name, amen!
“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” (I Thessalonians 4:16-17, in the King James Version).
Yesterday our skies were filled with clouds. They were dark clouds ready to burst into rain. Driving down the road to pick-up my husband from the airport, I said to my son who was with me, “Steve, look at all those clouds. Jesus could come back in those clouds. It’s a perfect set-up for His coming.”
A friend reminded us a few years ago that Jesus was coming back in the clouds. When our skies were not filled with sunshine, but when there were clouds.
So if your day is cloudy, look up with excitement because this could be the day He comes back!
Prayer: When I look up to see clouds, it gives me hope that this could be the day of Your return to gather Your saints. Thank You, Lord, for this blessed hope!
