A Promise For You From Bible Promises: [09/MAY/2019]
Topic: Would You Be In The Number?
For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first. – 1 Thessalonians 4:16.
Read: John 14:1-6
When parents go out of the house and tell their children that they are coming back soon, the children believe and take their parents for their words. This is because they believe that they will surely come back to the house. They also believe that Mummy and daddy have no reason to lie to them. But when they’re not forthcoming, the children begin to watch the road to see if their parents are coming. Most especially when their parents promised to get them something when returning from their outing. They don’t go to bed until they see their parents arrive home safely.
The Bible tells us in Acts 1:11, Which also said, “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven”. And our memory verse says that Jesus will descend from heaven with a shout of the archangel to take His people to Himself. Jesus Himself (just before His crucifixion) told His disciples (as He’s also telling us today) that He is going to where He came from (heaven). And that He will come back again (after He had finished preparing a place for us in heaven) to take us to Himself so that we will be with Him wherever He is.
From the word of Jesus Christ, He will be coming to take His people and only the redeemed of the Lord will be in the number. Anyone that is not yet saved through the blood of Jesus cannot be in the number. Will you be in the number? Or are you already in the number? There is no room for costly assumptions, be sure that you are in the number and don’t assume to be in the number to avoid disappointment on that day.
Bible Promises Prayer: Father Lord, on that day when you will come for Your people, let me be among the people in Jesus Mighty Name.
