Most people will scoff at the idea that Jesus will actually return to the earth. However, the warning is clear and we are on notice:
Mat 24:37-51 37 But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, 39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. 40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. 42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. 43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. 44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. 45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. 47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; 49 And shall begin to smite his fellow-servants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; 50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, 51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Salvation, through the infilling of the Holy Spirit the Bible way is therefore compulsory for all of us if we want to live forever:
Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Ephesians 6: 24
24 Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen.
We are meant to repent and need to change our way of thinking about what this means. Glenn’s invitation to you is to attend a Revival Centres Church meeting. You will hear the spiritual gifts and, if you wish, there will be the opportunity to receive the Holy Spirit and be baptised.
If you have any questions at all, please call Glenn Duker. He will be happy to talk about this wonderful thing. Thank you for keeping up with the Themes of the Bible series!
