"This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner....." Acts 1:11

  Signs of the times are everywhere. Jesus warned us of earthquakes in divers places. He said,"Many would come in His name declaring they were the Christ! He predicted wars would break out in the most unlikely places. He suggested famines would create tragedy and death for countless people! He emphasized that pestilence would cover the earth. He further warned of signs in the heavens. All these have come to pass as predicted but the greatest is yet to occur!

  Hovering above the Mount of Olives the angelic being declared,"He would come again in like manner as ye have seen Him go". This same Jesus! What was He like when He left them standing there! He was a Redeemer offering them salvation. He was a Savior providing forgiveness. He was a King who would come again to make them kings and priests unto God. He was a Messiah who would come and establish an earthly reign! He was a resurrected Christ who declared, " Because I live ye too shall live also"!

  This same Jesus is about to make His entrance! All the signs are in place. Gabriel is about to press the trumpet to his lips! Jesus is about to split the eastern sky!

  This same Jesus is coming in might and majesty to claim His own! Are you ready? I am glad I am!

In Jesus',
