Dwayne Wedderburn | Hallelujah! Christ Returneth!

"Let not your heart be troubled. Ye believe in God believe also in Me. In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also." (John 14 v 1-3)

We focus on His glorious birth, His sinless life, His atoning death and, indeed, we rejoice in His triumphant resurrection. We must be always fully focused as people of God, as ministers of the gospel, as a nation, of the certain reality that Jesus Christ is coming again. The theme of our message must be eternal salvation through Jesus Christ, with much emphasis on His second coming for His saints.

The Apostle Paul declared that Jesus is coming for a glorious church, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing. As we labour daily, as we strive to get the best results each day in all areas of our lives and calling, let us be mindful that an individual and collective end of it all is inevitable. Jesus Christ is coming again. Indeed, the trumpet of the Lord shall sound and time will be no more. This is the inescapable destiny of the entire human race.

 

Death surely not final

 

It is appointed unto man once to die. We all have a sure appointment with death, regardless of who we are. Life does not end at death. At death, natural life ends and eternal life begins. Our natural life - our time spent here on Earth - must be used to seize the opportunity to be beneficiaries of eternal life through Jesus Christ. Many lives are cut down in this nation daily. Murder, accident, sickness, and disease are prominent doorways to eternity. There are no accurate statistics available to man analysing the final eternal destination of the millions that have gone on before us. But what is sure, is that there is no repentance in the grave. The time for repentance is in life. Don't mess with your eternity. A decision to serve Jesus is our only guarantee of eternal salvation, a time spent eternally reigning with Jesus.

 

Man's Eternal Hope

 

"And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea. And I, John, saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a voice out of heaven saying, behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and He will dwell with them, and they shall be His people, and God himself shall be with them, and be there God." (Rev 21 v 1-3).

Salvation, through Jesus, climaxes with eternal life, and the message of Jesus must be pointing always to the hope of the redeemed. Highlighting Jesus returning for the ransomed church of God, to dwell forever with Him in a world free of death, curse, sickness, pain, and heartache, there will be no need for the sea or the sun. The brightness of His glory will be the sustenance of life.

Satan and all his demons, witches, warlocks, sorcerers, who are waxing so bold in this present time will join with the fearful, idolaters, and the unrepentant and burn in the lake of fire. God's final judgement will be handed down with a sentence to eternal doom and destruction, totally bound and tormented, living in eternal death.

 

Don't Compromise WORD

 

The gospel, the only hope to access eternal salvation, must be preached urgently without compromise. Evaluation of our messages is urgent. If the content of our message is causing men and women to be saved and ready to be with Jesus eternally, regardless of their social status, position, or place of power, then we are preaching the Gospel.

Jesus is coming again! Hallelujah! Christ returneth! Hallelujah! Amen.
