“He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly.  Amen.  Even so, come, Lord Jesus.” Revelation 22:20 (KJV) I was invited to go to Moore Elementary School with a 5th grader, Nasir Drake, and be his grandmother for the day. His grandparents are deceased. Nasir never knew what life is about…

Words are so important particularly to those who are grieving over the loss of a loved one. Often I am at a loss for words. The Apostle Paul writing to the church at Thessalonica gave them words to comfort one another. They were words of hope when he told them that the Lord would descend from heaven with a shout. “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 4:19 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). What comforting words these are!

Prayer: Hope of Your soon return is a comforting word for me. When I feel such heaviness over my losses, I can read Your Word and be comforted knowing You are coming back to take us from this world of sorrow. Thank You, Jesus!

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.” (Revelation 21:1 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible). There are several “no mores” in this chapter. John (the writer of Revelation) had been banished to the Isle of Patmos. The island was a lonely place to be as no visitors toured Patmos. Quiet time was all the time for John. Historical accounts indicate that the city of Ephesus was visible from the island. No doubt as he sat looking across to Ephesus, night was approaching and he could see the skyline of the city. In his mind he couldn’t help but think of the church located just a few streets from the waters edge. John knew it would soon be church time and only wished he could be in attendance. But one of these days, he wrote, there would be “no more sea” – no more division between him and where he wanted to be.

Prayer: At the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, the division between us and those we love will be no more. It’s a hard thing to be separated from those who have departed from this life, but what a hope we have one day to be reunited!

Time

“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!
