From Lamb to Lion
Revelation 22:20 (AMP)
He who testifies and affirms these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.”Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.
The first time Jesus came to earth, He arrived quietly. The Lamb of God who would take away the sins of the world through His own death and resurrection came as a baby in a manger. But the second time Jesus comes to earth, He will appear magnificently in the sky. The Lion of Judah bringing judgement.
It might surprise you that in the Bible, references to the second coming outnumber references to the first by a ratio of eight to one. Bible scholars count 1845 biblical references to the second coming, including 318 in the New Testament. Second only to faith, the second coming is one of the most dominant subjects in the New Testament. The Lord Himself referred to His return twenty one times.
Are we anticipating His second coming as ardently as we celebrate the baby in there manger? Final victory and the eternal reign of Christ are in our future. As you live in expectation of that day, radiate His love to others by showing sincere interest in their lives. Don’t waste a minute. Go and share the hope that is within you.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
