Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 10/17/10

This week’s scripture comes from Matthew:

“At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of [heaven], with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.”    (Matt.24:30-31)

We have all faced difficult days and will likely face more, especially if we are proclaiming the name of Jesus Christ, for the nations despise the Holy One of God and persecute His followers. But there is a day coming, a great day, when Christ will return, leading the armies of Heaven, when all else will be laid low and He will have His beloved gathered from one end of creation to the other to be caught up with Him. Hallelujah, Lord!  O glorious day!  O Blessed Hope!  O mighty Savior!  Come, Lord Jesus, come!   

May the Lord bless you this day and each day until He comes on that last day.
