Be Prepared For His Coming by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Be Prepared For His Coming by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

But the end of all things is at hand: be ye
therefore sober, and watch unto prayer
(1 Peter 4:7).

Some people say the world isn’t going to end
anytime soon. They say, “This talk of Jesus
coming soon has been on for ages; it’s never
going to happen!” Well, anyone who talks like that is
ignorant. I tell you, Jesus Christ is coming again! 1
Corinthians 16:22 (AMPC) says, “If anyone does not
love the Lord [does not have a friendly affection for Him
and is not kindly disposed toward Him], he shall be
accursed! Our Lord will come! (Maranatha!).”

The events and happenings all around the world
today are clear indications that the Lord’s return is
approaching, sooner than many can imagine. We’re in
the last days. In Luke 21:25-26, Jesus said that in the
last days, there’ll be perplexity of nations, men’s hearts
failing them for fear: “And there shall be signs in the
sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the
earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the
waves roaring; Men’s hearts failing them for fear….”

There’re very few events that need to take place
before the King finally shows up. Many aren’t prepared
for His return, but don’t be among such people.
Someone might ask, “Isn’t He going to take every
Christian with Him?” Yes, He’s going to take Christians
who are expecting Him; not those who have forgotten
about Him and have become so carnal and live as
though Jesus isn’t coming. Hebrews 9:28 says, “…and
unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.”

When the Apostle Paul, in 1 Thessalonians 5:6
admonished us not to sleep, he wasn’t talking about
physical sleep. He was talking about spiritual sleep;
when you’re so deep into worldly things that you
become unaware of, and oblivious to spiritual realities
around you. Jesus told us to watch and pray, “…for in
such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh”
(Matthew 24:44).

We must be awake and alert in the spirit; let
your life be guided by His love, by His Word and by
your expectation of His coming. Let your desire to win
more people to Christ flourish, because we’ve got to
win them; otherwise, they’ll perish without God. This is
the drive; this is what keeps us working to make sure
we leave no stone unturned in our quest and pursuit for
the souls of men.

CONFESSION
I’m fully convinced that the Gospel is God’s saving
power to everyone who believes, and therefore, I’m
resolute in my commitment to win more people to
Christ, snatching many out of the kingdom of
darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God.
Hallelujah!
