Well, here we are, "May" already.... the flowers are all in bloom and are exhibiting nothing short of God's glory...Here in East Texas we are now entering in to our "Tornado Season", and oh, so many have their eyes on the skies.... watching for the "signs" of impending weather....
This turns my thoughts to the "why" I watch the skies as well...I'm watching and waiting as patiently as I can for the "impending" return of my Lord Jesus Christ...
Tornados exhibit massive power; there is no way that mankind can control them. It’s simply a case of being informed in time to take cover. Just a few days ago, a Tornado ripped through the Middle West, destroying everything in its path as well as nearly forty lives.
Again, my thoughts are turned toward Jesus…. will His coming back be like a Tornado? Scripture tells us that Jesus’ return will be like that of a thief in the night.
Then as we read on we find in verse 4 this promise:
But you, brothers, are not in darkness so that this day should surprise you like a thief.
Just as the cities and towns here in East Texas and in the Midwest have warning systems of an impending Tornado, God gives us a warning system in His Word as well.
The question that arises in my mind is this:
Are you aware of the “Warning System” that God gives?
Are you watching the sky for His return?
Are you ready, for the impending return of Jesus Christ???
For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dad in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever....1 Thessalonians 4:16-17
