He's Coming Ready Or Not - Is He Coming For You?

In the Bible God says this about Jesus returning in the last days:
“In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” 1 Corinthians 15:52

Jesus promises to one day come back to earth to claim those who have accepted Him and take them to be with Him in His Kingdom. So does ‘becoming a christian’ guarantee you will be on the invitation list for this Kingdom of Heaven?

And what is the Kingdom of Heaven like? Here’s what the Bible says:

“The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of ten bridesmaids who took their lamps and went to meet the bridegroom. But only five of them were wise enough to fill their lamps with oil, while the other five were foolish and forgot.

“So, when the bridegroom was delayed, they lay down to rest until midnight, when they were roused by the shout, ‘The bridegroom is coming! Come out and welcome him!’

“All the girls jumped up and trimmed their lamps. Then the five who hadn’t any oil begged the others to share with them, for their lamps were going out.

“But the others replied, ‘We haven’t enough. Go instead to the shops and buy some for yourselves.’

“But while they were gone, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the marriage feast, and the door was locked. Matthew 25:1-10

In other words, we can accept Jesus as our saviour, believing we’re going to heaven but be completely unprepared when Jesus comes back again to claim His own.

Just like any relationship, if we say we love someone but never spend time with them the relationship will grow cold. If your prayers are just ‘bouncing off the ceiling’ lately and God hasn’t spoken to you lately, now is the perfect time to return to your first love, to turn things around and begin a serious relationship with Him. Just Ask!
