Topic: THE CERTAINTY OF CHRIST’S COMING
Revelation 22:20 (NKJV)
He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
We have discovered in previous devotions, that, the Lord Jesus is not slack concerning His promise; He is ready, and will surely come for His Church.
The initial part of today’s theme Scripture shows the certainty of Christ’s coming; He said, “Surely, I am coming quickly.” The King James Version of the Bible says, “Surely, I come quickly.” It doesn’t matter how long it has been, Jesus will surely come for His Church. Believers in years and centuries past were expectant of Christ’s coming, but didn’t live to see that day; but doesn’t mean they’re hopeless. They will rise first, at the coming of Christ. Nothing will be lost if, for instance, this generation doesn’t live to see Christ’s coming; all we need to do is to remain in Christ, because the dead in Christ will rise first.
We need to be certain of Christ’s coming, and build personal convictions with that certainty. Let no one talk you out of this conviction. Let no one dissuade you with human philosophy. Let no one rob you of your crown. In Revelation 3:11 (NKJV), our Lord Jesus said, “Behold, I am coming quickly! Hold fast what you have, that no one may take your crown.” Hold fast what you have! Hold onto God’s promise, and count Him faithful. Hold fast the confession of your faith without wavering, for He is faithful that promised (Hebrews 10:23). Very soon, whether dead or alive, the promise of Christ’s coming will be fulfilled. Hebrews 10:37 (KJV) says, “For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry.”
Indeed, He that shall come will come, and will not tarry! Do you live your Christian life with this certainty?
