The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Isaiah 25:1-5 which reads: “O Lord, thou art my God; I will exalt thee, I will praise thy name; for thou hast done wonderful things; thy counsels of old are faithfulness and truth. For thou hast made of a city an heap; of a defenced city a ruin: a palace of strangers to be no city; it shall never be built. Therefore shall the strong people glorify thee, the city of the terrible nations shall fear thee. For thou hast been a strength to the poor, a strength to the needy in his distress, a refuge from the storm, a shadow from the heat, when the blast of the terrible ones is as a storm against the wall. Thou shalt bring down the noise of strangers, as the heat in a dry place; even the heat with the shadow of a cloud: the branch of the terrible ones shall be brought low.”
Our second coming quote for today is from Michael Youssef. He said: “We must always be on watch and prepare for that day. God wants us to treat each day as if it were the last before His return. He wants us to live knowing that at any moment, final judgment will come upon this world — not so that we would live in anxiety, but to be motivated to share the Gospel message with those who do not know Him. What if Christ returned tomorrow? Would that change how you spend the rest of today? Would you continue to keep silent about His love and judgment, or would you boldly and lovingly share about His return? Commit yourself to living a lifestyle that eagerly anticipates the appearance of King Jesus.”
