Topic: Before the Judgement [DCLM Daily Manna 2 December 2018 Daily Devotional by Pastor William Folorunso Kumuyi]
Text: Daniel 12:5-13 (KJV)
Key Verse: “And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished“ (Daniel 12:7).
The emergence of computer has greatly fuelled the advancement of science and technology and drastically changed the way we live. Alongside these advancements is increasing sense of insecurity and apprehension – no thanks to recent social, economic and political developments in the world.
Both Testaments of the Bible foretold what the end of the present age will be. The book of Daniel is one of the prominent scriptures in this regard. Its last chapter summarises and concludes the great revelations contained in the book. The earlier verses foretold the eventual deliverance of the Jews from Antiochus who will greatly persecute them. Beyond that, it points to the fate of believers (dead and alive) before the coming of the Antichrist. They will be raptured to meet the Lord in the air and be rewarded for their works.
Christ’s coming at the rapture would be to deliver believers from the troubles that would be unleashed on the world during the reign of the Antichrist. The Bible reveals that he will reign for seven years. He will deceive the world for three and half years, gain global acceptance and eventually enter into an agreement with Israel. But Israel’s real trouble will begin with the last three and half years when the Antichrist will renege, desecrate their worship and persecute them.
Truly, “Left behind” believers will weep and gnash their teeth. Do you want to be among them? Thus, “give diligence to make your calling and election sure: for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall: For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ (2 Peter 1:10,11). Be prepared.
Thought For The Day: The greatest miss of all times will be the missing of the rapture.
Bible Reading In One Year: 1 Corinthians 12-14
