The day of the Lord is approaching. He will return to earth cloaked in dark clouds and lightning. Are you ready for Him?
He’ll be coming down the mountain when He comes. Will you welcome Him?
Every mountain and hill – every exalted thing that is raised up against Jesus – will be made low. Vanquished. Overcome. Extinguished.
Every valley – the lowly, oppressed, forgotten – will be raised up.
Do you know what this means? Everything built by man will crumble to the ground. Become ashes and dust. Nothingness.
His Word is a double-edged sword – We will see both His judgement and His glory (His goodness) poured out at once. It will be a day of great rejoicing and terrible mourning. He will raise up the things built on humility, brokenness, and total dependency on Him, and He will lay to waste all that is built by human wisdom, human agenda, and pride.
People get ready, Jesus is coming. Honor Him as Lord in every area of your life. Align yourself to His agenda and cast down your man-made crowns. Build your life on solid rock so that when the day of testing & shaking comes, you will be able to stand. It is better to have a shack on the rock than to have castles of sand.
He came to earth 2,000 years ago as Mary’s little lamb. He is returning as a mighty lion.
He came as a servant. He is returning as a King.
He came as a scapegoat. He is returning as a Judge.
He came to turn ashes into beauty. He is returning to shatter beauty to ashes.
People get ready.
- Isaiah 40:3-5
- Hebrew 12
- Haggai 2
- Psalm 45:3
this is a beautiful and timely post… the question are you ready for him is so important, are we ready for his soon coming, we need to make sure to be ready because he wont be coming again.
Very beautifully written and so very true! We should live every moment of our lives as If the Lord’s coming is any minute!!
It’s amazing how Jesus came here to be human and endure the suffering of this world. He impacted the world 2,000 years ago and continues to do so. I look forward to his return. Thank you for sharing!
May our eyes, hearts, and hands be open to receive Him when he comes. Lord, make us ready. May we love sight of the frivolous things and steady our eyes and hearts on you and your mission.
Beautiful reminder. The only thing that matters is what we do for Him!
Awesome call for all to prepare for His coming. It is a must for everyone. Thanks for sharing.
This is so motivational. Such a great reminder! Thank you for your posts reminding us of the Truth of Scripture! Looking forward to stopping back at your blog more often! 🙂 Blessings on your day!
I’m Ready and I want him to come soon!
Yes, I am ready and waiting for HIs return eagerly. Can’t wait. One time when we were in Ghana, the sky lit up and was flashing. We didn’t know what it was and thought maybe the Lord was returning. But it wasn’t time yet. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.
I love the comparison in how he came and how he is returning! Great call for us all to be ready.
Oh I pray to our Lord that the eyes of the people of this world will be opened so that they will be ready for his coming. We must always be ready because we do not know when he will come!
I am honored for when the time comes.
The way this world is going… I’m ready for Him to come!! Let’s DO THIS. 🙂 This gives me hope.
I too often get distracted with daily life and forget to await His return.
I often get so nervous to think the time is coming! Time to prepare!
This is beautiful. All I can say is “Come Lord Jesus!” So excited to spend eternity with Him.
I love this!!! There are so many days that I sit and ponder Christ’s return! I cannot WAIT!!! How glorious it will be!!!
Amen and amen!
Such a powerful and true message. I know I need to do a better job of being prepared. So often we get caught up in the little things. It’s time to remember what truly matters.
I would love to be alive to see him come again- but I don’t necessarily want to live through all the chaos and difficulties of the end of times. Thanks for this timely warning!
So true and yet it’s so easy to forget that he will come again. A good reminder to live like he’s just around the corner about to pop in on us!!
Beautiful words! And I love your gorgeous pictures and blog design too.
I enjoyed reading your post, Samantha! I liked how you explained leveling mountains and raising up valleys. Thank you!
“Align yourself to His agenda”….those words struck me! That is exactly what I want to do. Show us the way, heavenly Father!
Thanks for sharing a great post!!
It is a wonderful thing to think the time is coming!
What a wonderful post! Such a great perspective to consider.
This gave me chills. I don’t know how to fully prepare for this but I’m so excited to be with Him and my family in paradise!
As a Christian woman I really appreciate your post. It’s a beautifully written reminder that we need to prepare for his coming. Thank you!
This is a wonderful post! Beautifully written =)
So important to remember our lives are very short-term. Today is not to be wasted or misspent!
