THE SOON RETURN OF JESUS CHRIST

Luke 21:27 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.
Just when it seems like the world is about as goofed up as possible it suddenly deteriorates to new levels. The Lord told us in no uncertain terms how difficult the last days would be. I guess reading about it in the Bible and seeing it come to pass are quite different things. We see the jihadists emboldened to the point where they are beheading American news reporters, killing children who are born in Christian families, and blatantly attacking the land of Israel. At the same time the American church has fallen asleep consumed with thoughts of their best life now rather than having an eternal perspective. In an atmosphere like that the words from the eighteenth century preacher, Jonathan Edwards, come like a breath of fresh air.
“But above all, the time of Christ’s last coming, is the time of the consummation of the church’s marriage with the Lamb, and the time of the complete and most perfect joy of the wedding. In that resurrection morning, when the Sun of Righteousness shall appear in our heavens, shining in all his brightness and glory, he will come forth as a bridegroom; he shall come in the glory of his Father, with all his holy angels. And at that glorious appearing of the great God, and our Savior Jesus Christ, shall the whole elect church, complete as to every individual member and each member with the whole man, both body and soul, and both in perfect glory, ascend up to meet the Lord in the air, to be thenceforth forever with the Lord. That will be a joyful meeting of this glorious bridegroom and bride indeed. Then the bridegroom will appear in all his glory without any veil: and then the saints shall shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father, and at the right hand of their Redeemer; and then the church will appear as the bride, the Lamb’s wife. ‘Tis the state of the church after the resurrection, that is spoken of, Revelation 21:2”
Edwards spoke of the return of Christ as a real event. The truth is that it was real to him and more important than anything this life could offer. He had tasted real love, the eternal love of God, and that had set his hope on eternity. The taste of true love will change your perspective of life. It will turn your heart toward heaven and put an expectancy of that great day in your soul.
