Why I Believe Jesus is Coming Back in my Lifetime.
Hush…be still…and listen. Did you hear it? Listen carefully again, there it is…just a few notes …trumpet sounds. Yes, it’s the Angel Gabriel practicing the notes of the trumpet call that will precede our going home to be with the Lord.
It’s unsettling to think that this trumpet blast will be the loudest ever known to mankind yet heard by so very few all over the world. Before you can hear the sound you first have to see with the eyes of faith and then prepare your heart to hear it.
The Bible says the people of God are sojourners here. That word simply means aliens or as reflected in some Gospel music…were just a ’passin on through….because this world is not our home. We long to go to that city which has foundations, whose architect and builder is God.
For those that “Seek God with all their hearts and minds”, God has given prophetic signs in the Old Testament. These signs describe the Redeemer, the Messiah who would come to save us from our sins. The identity of this Messiah is hidden in the Old Testament within Messianic Prophecies. In the New Testament the Messiah is revealed, it becomes clear that Gods Messiah, Redeemer is Jesus.
Jesus said “My Sheep Know MY Voice……Jesus said Faith in Him is the only way home. Believe in me He says and I will give you a personal ticket so you can finally go home to be with Me when you hear that trumpet call.
Believe in Me, He said…………Why should I believe in Him? He hasn’t come yet. I cannot use any of my senses to touch Him. We are physical beings, right, we have taste, touch, smell, hearing, seeing yet the Bible says we also are Spiritual Beings. That means we are capable of believing in something or someone we cannot see through the eyes of faith.
Michael Card said it best in the lyrics of one of his songs
“That’s What Faith Must Be”.
To hear with my heart, To see with my soul,
To be guided by a hand I cannot hold,
To trust in a way that I cannot see,
That’s what faith must be.
