The Best Show
Have you ever been to a concert? Moments before it starts, the lights dim. Everything is dark. But when the star of the show begins performing the lights come on and everyone cheers.
Matthew 24:29 says, “Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light….” The next verse tells us what happens after this divine black out. “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven….and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds…”
Revelation 19:11 fills in some details. “Now I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True…His eyes were like a flame of fire…”
This is the Second Coming of Christ. Everything blacks out – and then all the worlds attention is focused on the Light!
What a sight it will be – Jesus on a white horse with the armies of heaven behind Him. How spectacular, how triumphant! He is coming to judge. He is coming in great glory. He is coming as King of all!
This future event is certain to happen! It will be the final culmination of human history.
What should your response be?
Watch. Be ready. Be filled with hope. Live pure. Your Redeemer is coming. If you don’t know Him, you still have time. Give your life to Jesus right now!
And keep looking up – today might be the day!
