As we near the end of the Christian year, approaching Advent, today's devotion for today is based on Mark 13:26,27 "At that time people will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. And he will send his angels and gather his elect from the four winds, from the ends of the earth to the ends of the heavens."
One of the remarkable promises Jesus made about the day he returns to judge this world is that when he returns, every eye will see him. How is that even possible?
The Bible is very clear about how that is possible. It says that the angels will pick up all believers in Jesus on judgment day and take them to the very place that Jesus is returning. It doesn't matter where in the world you live or precisely where Jesus chooses to return. The earth as we know it will be destroyed on judgment day. But Jesus will bring you safely through that time to eternity. In the meantime, give thanks that God has it all figured out.
Please pray with me, Heavenly Father, creator, and sustainer of all things, seen and unseen; thank you for providing Jesus as my Savior. Without him and his saving work on my behalf, I would be lost forever. Thank you for your Word where I can find out more about you and your love for all of humankind. Please help me keep my eyes on your promise of my resurrection from the dead when you come back on Judgment Day. In Jesus' name, I pray. Lord. Amen.
