He which testifieth these things saith, Surely, I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. —Revelation 22:20
Christ will come as quickly as the lightning flashes from the east to the west, and just as quickly He will snatch His bridal company away while the world sleeps in a drunken stupor.
But the next time He comes, all will know it. Every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess Jesus Christ as Lord (Phil. 2:10-11). Every eye shall see Him, and every slanderous tongue will have to confess before the world that these were God's chosen vessels.
This honor belongs to the saints. The world will have to confess that we were right, and that they were wrong. God is very proud of His bride. God's children now deny themselves many of the things of the world, but they are heirs of the kingdom even though many are poor in this world and having hard times. There is going to be a change in this old world. God is calling you to behold. Don't go a step further.
The first time the bride will be caught away. The second time she will come riding on white horses. Jesus will stand on the Mount of Olives and they that pierced Him shall see Him. You now know down in your hearts that Jesus is the Christ. God's people hear something more than natural men hear. The wisdom we get comes from God, who gives liberally to all His people. More than anything else my prayer has been, "Give me wisdom." A blind man can see if he looks with spiritual eyes at the signs of the times.
Lord, I am ready and waiting for the day when
You will come and take Your bride. Amen.
