LOOK TO JESUS


LOOK TO JESUS

“And then at last, the sign of the coming of the Son of Man will appear in the heavens, and there will be a deep mourning among ALL the nations of the earth.” Matthew 24: 30

God has been speaking to me this week about the return of Jesus. I felt impressed to share this word with you NOW, instead of waiting. The words to a song keep coming into my mind, “Look up, your redemption draweth nigh” (Jesus IS coming). In Matthew 24: 1-12, 37 the Lord says that the things going on in society prior to His return will be much like they were in the days of Noah. When you read these verses you will find that the world today is the same or worse. Because of the people’s sin and rebellion, God destroyed all but eight people on the earth with a flood. As I read through the Bible, I cover over 2000 years of history and in all that time I see no changes in the behavior and attitudes of the majority of people. Solomon, who was considered the wisest man said, “…there is no new thing under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9,10). This has proven to be correct when you look at ‘people; the righteous & unrighteous, both then and now.

In the days of Moses there was much complaining, scoffing, and open rebellion against God’s commandments (called ‘SIN’) and God disciplined His children. He sent fiery serpents into the Israelite camp and many died after being bitten (Numbers 21: 5-9). He told Moses to make a serpent and put it on a pole. When the pole was held up, any who looked at it would be healed. Scripture says that MANY DIED. Why? They just did not believe, or they chose not to look. Much later, Jesus spoke of this time when He was describing His death and ascension into heaven (John 3: 14, 15). Some will look to Jesus for eternal life; many won’t.

God loves us and He sent His only Son, Jesus, to save us (Matthew 18: 11, 14; John 3: 16, 17). It is NOT His will that even one of us be lost. There was a time prior to His crucifixion when God the Father spoke audibly to Jesus and Jesus responded with these words, “This voice came not because of Me, but for your sakes. Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto Me” (Matthew 12: 28-32). As when Moses held up the serpent on the pole; so Jesus hung on the cross; but Jesus was raised from the dead and He is lifted up ALIVE and will one day return for those who choose to believe the reality of His life!

The word that God is speaking to us TODAY is that any who CHOOSE to accept Jesus as Lord of their lives will be saved and have eternal life. I believe He is also speaking to any who have received Jesus into their life and He is asking you, “Am I being lifted up in your life; are people drawn to you because they are looking at Me LIVING through you?”
