Behold, I am coming soon! [Jesus]

second-coming-of-christNew Year’s Eve… the end of 2016… Just finished reading my Bible through one more time (began doing it when annually when I was 18 – now I’m 69… figure it out 😉  Been a wonderful, uplifting, soul-sustaining, life-transforming practice!  I recommend!  (If you’re looking for a Bible reading plan to guide you, I wrote one several years ago I entitled “Necessary Food” based upon Job 23:12 [“I have treasured to word of His mouth more than my necessary food.”]  You read a passage from each major literary type of the Bible each day and finish the Bible in a year.  Just email me at leroybartel@gmail.com and I’ll send you a free pdf copy for your Bible reading this year.)

Back to what I got from my Bible reading during “coffee with the Lord” today…

The final passage of God’s word to us (repeated three times I might say) as we end 2016 and begin 2017 tomorrow morning…

“And He said to me [John], ‘These word are trustworthy and true!  The Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets has sent His angel to show His servants what must soon take place.  BEHOLD, I AM COMING SOON!  Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book…

“BEHOLD, I AM COMING SOON, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done.  I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end!…

“He who testifies to these things says, ‘SURELY I AM COMING SOON!’  AMEN!  COME, LORD JESUS!

“The grace of the Lord Jesus be with you all!  Amen”

(From Revelation 22:6-7, 12-13, 20-21)

May you all have a God-blessed New Year as you watch for and expectantly wait for the Lord’s return!  “Amen!  Come Lord Jesus!”
