Just Over The Hilltop
My text will come from Revelation 22:7 Behold I come quickly…
The Lord Jesus Christ says this right after John has been shown the end times. I’m sure John was hoping it would be real soon that the savior would come back and catch out all the saved of the earth.
As we get closer and closer to the 2nd coming of the Lord Jesus Christ we all can realize that the Lord’s return is just around the corner. With the news reports and watching the violence of our world and signs of the end times you don’t have to know too much to know that our eternal destiny is just over the hilltop.
The great temptation of the age will be to just give up on his return. The scripture says that there will be those in the last days that ask where is the promise of his return.
So in the last days there will be many that will quit preaching and teaching on the 2nd Coming of Christ because of discouragement and that’s because of prophecy teachers that set dates for certain events and nothing happens. The result is a lack of faith, discouragement, distrust in the word of God. a lack of faithfulness and disinterest in the word of God and the things of God.
May you never give up on the 2nd Coming of our Blessed Hope for it is truly just over the hilltop.
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.
