HE WILL COME RIGHT ON TIME
The Lord promised to come again to receive us unto himself. It’s been almost 2000 years ago. Each moment the believers kept expecting and many have slept expecting him (Heb.11:39-40). He did not come in their time, but they passed on expecting. But surely the Lord will come as he promised, nevertheless not at anybody’s time, except his own; John 14:1-3.
Remember in John 11, when Lazarus was sick and eventually died; in verse 6 it reads, “When he had heard therefore that he was sick, he abode two days still in the same place where he was.” As you read verses 7 to 26 you will see that the Lord spent another two days before getting to Lazarus, who was then dead and buried. According to verse 17, “The when Jesus came, he found that he had lain in the grave four days already.” Jesus said, to Martha in verse 23, “Thy brother shall rise again.” In her level of believe, she knew of the last days and the resurrection of the dead; she believed that her brother would surely rise in the last day. But Jesus was telling her of here and now but she was thinking of the future. Jesus went further, to tell her in verse 25, that, “I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.” But Jesus in verse 43, showed that the last days, Martha was talking about was standing before them; and yet she was settled about the revelation of the last day that was to come. But she could not comprehend that the last days’ maker was the one standing and talking to her. The last day is the resurrection power at work, and before them stood the last days’ voice and crier. And Jesus Christ cried with a loud voice, “Lazarus come forth.” Jesus showed indeed that he was the resurrection and the life, and was right on time for Lazarus, even when he came four days late by man’s judgment. He came right on time.
In Genesis when man’s sin became unbearable before God, He told Noah how to build the ark, because two thousand years was up for the then world. The rain and flood came and God judged the then world. God was on time to judge the world and save Noah and his household and company of creatures as He ordered. God came on time. Our Lord came again two thousand years to dwell in the world as man. Heb.12:2-4, tells us, what God went through on earth as man, “Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.” He came on time to fulfill the cross to save man. He is never late or early but comes right on time.
Jesus promised to come after another two thousand years. This makes it six thousand years of man on earth. There is no man keeping accurate record of time, only God knows when the 6000 years is up; for the millennium to start. Be rest assured the Lord will come at the exact time. We are past the six thousand year mark, by man’s calendar. But remember in the case of Lazarus He spent four more days before arriving and still proved He was the resurrection and the life. He will definitely come for the translation at the right time. Be ye ready is our own apart to play; as to answer when the rapture trumpet sounds.
This world is operating on the Roman calendar of 365 days approximately, but God uses 360 day calendar. So this world is operating on borrowed time, when thinking of the 6000 years mark for this world. When Jesus Christ comes it will be the Resurrection and Life, time clock moment. God’s time is different from that of man. He call the time and all we do is to be prepared for his sudden arrival; in an hour you think not. According to Rom. 11:34, “Who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath sbeen his counselor?”
He will surely come, just be ready, holy, pure, and stay away from all appearances of evil. He will surely come He will NOT fail; though He tarry wait for Him, The Lord Jesus Christ. He will come on time, watch and pray. Repent and be converted and get baptized by immersion in the name of The Lord Jesus Christ. Remember Mark 16:15-20; it is for you as you wait for the time of the Lord’s arrival, stay ready.
