Are You Ready For The Coming Of Jesus?
How can you live as if Jesus were returning today? How do you show your faith in his imminent return? Let us reason Together.
1. He’s coming soon;
He’s coming soon;
With joy I welcome
It may be in the morning;
It may be night or noon,
But I know my Lord coming soon.
2. The Kingdom of God is not meat and drink, but Righteousness in the Holy Ghost! (Romans.14:17).
(a)KINDOM OF GOD:- The sphere of salvation where God rules in the hearts of those He has saved.
Eating and Drinking. None-essentials and external observations.
(b)RIGHTEOUSNESS:- Holy, Obedient living Eph 6:14
PEACE:- The loving tranquility , produced by the Spirit, that should characterise believers’ relationships with God and each other (Gal. 5:22)
(c)JOY IN THE HOLY GHOST:- Another part of the Spirit’s Fruit,this describes an abiding attitude of Praise and thanksgiving regardless of circumstances, which flows from one’s confidence in God’s Sovereignty (Gal. 5:22;1Thess1:6)
Read:- Luke 17:20-37
“For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other, so it will be on the day when the Son of Man comes. But first the Son of Man must suffer terribly and be rejected by this generation.”
“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days, the people enjoyed banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat and the flood came and destroyed them all.
“And the world will be as it was in the days of Lot. People went about their daily business—eating and drinking, buying and selling, farming and building—until the morning Lot left Sodom. Then fire and burning sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. Yes, it will be ‘business as usual’ right up to the day when the Son of Man is revealed. On that day a person out on the deck of a roof must not go down into the house to pack. A person out in the field must not return home. Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! If you cling to your life, you will lose it, and if you let your life go, you will save it. (Luke 17:24-33)
Many will claim to be the Messiah and many will claim that Jesus has returned—and people will believe them. Jesus warns us never to take such reports seriously, no matter how convincing they may sound. When Jesus returns, his power and presence will be evident to everyone. No one will need to spread the message because all will see for themselves.
Life will be going on as usual on the day Jesus returns. There will be no warning. Most people will be going about their everyday tasks, indifferent to the demands of God. They will be as surprised by Jesus’ return as the people in Noah’s day were by the flood (Genesis 6–8) or the people in Lot’s day by the destruction of Sodom (Genesis 19).
We don’t know the time of Jesus’ return, but we do know that he is coming. He may come today, tomorrow, or centuries in the future. Whenever he comes, we must be morally and spiritually ready. How can you live as if Jesus were returning today? How do you show your faith in his imminent

Job 29:1-25 , John 15:5
Proverbs 8: 17- 19, Psalm 1: 2-3 , Joshua 1:8, 2 Cor. 4:13, Romans 10:8-10
The Holy Spirit is your senior partner; He is your Helper, Strengthener, Guide, Instructor and Teacher.
Your life and accomplishment can be achieved with eternal values when you are totally yielded to the Holy Spirit.
Almighty God has connected you to an unbeatable partnership with Himself. Being connected with Christ makes you fruitful. His Word vitalises every path of your body. Your blood, heart, bones and your sight are vitalised through His word. Praise God.
Read Job 29: 1-25
YOUR MIRACLE HAS COME!
“JESUS IS THE SOLUTION WHEREVER YOU ARE HURT”
“Immanuel” God with us. Matthew 1:23 “They shall call His name Immanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
Christ is our Victor. Micah. 2:13″ One who breaks open the way will go before them”
Because Jesus has gone before us,things are not as they would
have been if He had never passed that way.
Christ has conquered every foe that obstructed the way. He slain the
devil, nailed our sins to His cross, conquered death for us, barred the entrance of hell against His children and never to see the abyss of perdition, broken the lions teeth,pulled the fangs of serpents, bridged every river across our ways, given us matchless garments that render us invulnerable to fire (Isa. 43:3 ), blunted the sword forged against us,the instruments of war has lost their points and power. It is true we often engaged in combat, but the fight is with a vanquished foe. All we have to do is to divide the spoil.
All that God wants to be manifested in you is Christ; Christ alive in you: working through you , touching and changing lives through you.
Christ has taking up His abode in your Spirit; you’ve become His headquarters and operational centre. Whatever He needs to do in the earth today is through you. You are His beauty, Glory, Wisdom, perfections, righteousness, trophy, and outreached arm to the world, in ever- increasing measure. Jesus said in John 15:5 “I am the vine. Ye are the branches…,” You reveal the glory and beauty of Christ. Glory to God. Amen.
Do you want to be extravagantly blessed by God? Are you ready to reach for the extraordinary,and overcome your past or present experience of domestic violence, depression, sexual abuse, verbal abuse, child abandonment, barrenness, rejection, poverty, curses, stress, self-Harm, divorce, lack of confidence, sense of failure and shame & guilt, relationship difficulties, and work pressure?
Do you want to be delivered from Sin: Big sin, little sins, open sin, secret sins, anger, wrath, filthy communications, lies, impatience, temper, dishonesty, coldness of heart, emptiness, dryness, hardness, fear, worry, liquor, gambling, pride, self-righteousness, unbelief, hate, self-pity, criticism, unkind thoughts, sharp words, jealousy, cheating, hypocrisy, strife, lust of the eyes, evil or impure thoughts, selfishness, covetousness, gossip, worldliness, stealing, adultery, murder, sabbath-breaking, disobedience to parents, fighting, cursing, revenge, testimony failure, failure to set good example, neglect of the Bible, neglect of prayer, grieving or quenching the Holy Spirit, etc,
Have you been sick? Lost a loved one? Been imprisoned? Unfairly treated? In all of our trials, God promises to bring something good out of even our darkest moments (James 1:2-4).
“God likewise, knows where you are, but He wants you to share with Him HOW you’re really doing where you really are! He knows about the troubled marriage, the wayward children, the depleting bank account, the strife amongst siblings, the plotting coworkers, the stress of the ministry. He knows about your depression, your loneliness, your despair, your confusion, your tears, your heartache, your frustrations. And He’s still sitting by waiting for you not to just tell Him where you are, but how you’re really doing. Remember you’re in a Relationship with Him, you’re not a part of a Religion with Him. He wants to hear your voice, he wants you to share your emotions, pour all that’s in you out to Him, before you take it to others as usual who can do you no good. It’s about your Relationship not Rules, Regulations and Religion.
And a real relationship with God is honestly telling Him when you’re hurting, when you’re afraid, when you feel like giving up, when you’re angry, when you’re tired, when you’re frustrated, when you’re confused, when you can’t forgive, when you can’t fight anymore, when you don’t understand, when you’re desperate for love, when you’re spiritually deflated, and the list could simply go on forever! Because you’ll never reach a point in a real relationship with God where you run out of things to share with Him!
Can you imagine how many marriages could’ve been saved had the couples went to God to tell Him exactly where they were? How many children would not have run away from home, joined gangs, or lost their virginity, had they known to go to God with all they’re feeling and talk to Him? How many lives could’ve been saved had they went to God with their deepest hurts, disappointments, anger, and feelings of despair and loss instead of ending their lives in suicide? How many businesses that would not have went bankrupt if the owners went to God before the attorneys? How many church splits that didn’t need to occur had the pastor and church went to the God they say, sing, and preach is the Head of the church?
People of God, if you only knew how badly your God desires for you to let it all out so He can finally let in His mercy (that is new every morning); His grace (that is sufficient for whatever you’re going through); His lovingkindness (that will always be better than life); and His unconditional love (that will always cover the multitude of your every sin)! All He’s waiting for is a meeting with the Real You, at the place You’re Really At! Just tell Him! Don’t walk out on the marriage, don’t give up on the kids, don’t quit the job, don’t leave the church, don’t take your own life, don’t throw in the towel, just Talk to God, He’s waiting to hear from you! “Call to me and I will answer you. I’ll tell you marvelous and wondrous things that you could never figure out on your own.” (Jeremiah 33:3 MSG); And then He even takes it a step further: “I will answer them before they even call to me. While they are still talking to me about their needs, I will go ahead and answer their prayers!” (Isaiah 65:24 TLB)
Your spiritual drifting, your distance from God, or your unnecessary pain may be because you’ve been coming to God without the real you! He said: “I know the plans I have for you…” (Jeremiah 29:11). Not the plans for the person you’re attempting to be, not the figment of your imagination, not the covered up Cover Girl! But plans for the real you!
Today, I challenge you to get your map out and mark the “X” of where you Really are right now. Why? Because, it’s then, and only then, that God will take you from there to where He’s destined you to be!
Hear Jesus’ heartfelt plea to us, “Listen! I am standing and knocking at your door. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in and we will eat together.” (Revelation 3:20 CEV). Today, He wants to come in and share with you substance “…we will eat together“. He wants to share with you something that will feed you, nourish you, and strengthen you! And He wants to do it With You! And all you have to do is Let Him In!
Saints, He’s at your door knocking, will you open the door of your heart to Him and finally say “Lord, I’m Right Here”?
