“God steps out like he means business: You can see he’s primed for action.” [Isaiah 42:13 The Message]
Today we celebrate the appearing of a babe lying in a manger—are you ready to celebrate the second appearing of the King of Kings? The Lion of the Tribe of Judah!
Around the globe the warnings are being given—they are increasing—they are becoming louder. Like a thief in the night God will slip into the place of your dwelling—will you hear the sound of His coming—will you be aware of His returning, are you prepared to recognize His appearing the second time?
In His first appearing He was a gift wrapped in swaddling clothes, what gifts have you wrapped to give to Him as you await His appearing the last and final time?
To see His appearing the second time requires surrendering of all things through faith in Christ. Faith will express itself in joy—Joy will become your strength—and spiritual strength will provide the endurance Christ spoke of. “But he who endures to the end shall be saved.” [Matthew 24:13] This is an end-time promise, a last day reality.
Endurance is to hold one’s ground in conflict or to bear-up against an adversity, to hold-out under stress, standing firm, persevering in all manner of pressure. Wait calmly and courageously for God’s perfect timing, listen to hear the Lion’s roar against all God’s foes, trust His Word and faithfulness to all those that wait His appearing.
Endurance is not passive resignation to fate and mere patience, but the active, energetic resistance to defeat! Hold fast this glorious morning to faith in the God of the Word—and release SHOUTS OF JOY!
