And in that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives, which faces Jerusalem on the east. and the Mount of Olives shall be split in two, from east to west, making a very large valley; half of the mountain shall move toward the north and half of it toward the south. Then you shall flee through My mountain valley, for the mountain valley shall reach to Azal. Yes, you shall flee as you fled from the earthquake In the days of Uzziah king of Judah.
Thus the LORD my God will come, and all the saints with You. It shall come to pass in that day that there will be no light; the lights will diminish. It shall be one day which is known to the LORD — neither day nor night. But at evening time it shall happen that it will be light. And in that day it shall be that living waters shall flow from Jerusalem, half of them toward the eastern sea and half of them toward the western sea; in both summer and winter it shall occur. And the LORD shall be King over all the earth. In that day it shall be—"The LORD is one,” and His name one.
Yes, there will come a day called the great day of the Lord. Yes, nations are forming against Israel. There will be a remnant whom the Lord will fight for. Jesus will return bringing all His saints, His followers, with Him...those who have called on the name of the Lord and have been saved. Yes, He will return!
- Those who have known the day when they called on the name of the Lord and were saved look forward to the day of His return.
- They look up during all that happens here on earth.
- They know He died and was raised again.
- They know their Redeemer is alive today.
- They look up knowing He will return to rule and reign on earth.
- They believe what the Bible says.
- They know that the things on this earth are nothing in comparison to what Jesus has offered through knowing Him and being in relationship with Him...not trusting man and the things of this earth.
- They know they have given their lives to Jesus Christ.
Yes, He will return. It will happen just as stated above. He will stand on the Mount of Olives and it will split. The Bible speaks the truth. In the scripture above Zechariah prophesied about Israel. How God would return them to their nation (which has been happening) and one day those whom He had once hoped to redeem and who have rejected Jesus all these years, will see and believe. But it also refers to those in those last days who have called on His name for their salvation. This is not some namby pamby understanding of who God is but the real deal. These are the remnant.
Yes, I watch for the signs of His return. I see the closeness in the news. While I'm not happy to see what is going on I know that it must be. We will be having a presidential election coming up. Yes, I will vote and I will vote for the candidate whose views are the closest to what God would desire. I'd love to see a godly man in the White House, one who is not afraid to state His trust in God. But we still cannot put all our trust in a man. We must continue ourselves to put our trust in God. It's a personal relationship first, then a
His return will be in His timing. Would I like to see things change for the better in this world...this country...yes. It can only happen when one by one a person looks to God and trusts in Him. Living life for our own pleasures alone or not truly believing in God is like turning our backs on our Lord, like Israel did. How often is He given credit for the things we have? How often do we recognize Him in our daily lives? What will it take to recognize Him? It might be too late when He returns. The time to look to Him is now. Say yes to Jesus yourself.
Philippians 3:18-21 - For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things. For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
