LUKE 21:27,28

LUKE 21: 27 Then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.”

 

JESUS/YESHUA HAS GIVEN THE DISCIPLES A COMPREHENSIVE OUTLINE OF WHAT THE GREAT TRIBULATION (MATT.24:21) IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE.

HE DESCRIBED A NUMBER OF PRELIMINARY EVENTS, SOME OF WHICH ARE PRE-TRIBULATION EVENTS, FOR THEY ARE IN THE EARLY STAGES OF REALIZATION; HOWEVER, IT IS WHEN UNNATURAL OCCURRENCES IN THE HEAVENLIES – SUN, MOON, & STARS – AND THE SEA, OCCUR, THAT HE SAYS TO “LOOK UP & SEE THAT YOUR REDEMPTION IS NEAR.”  HE ALSO LINKS IT TO THE “ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION” (DAN.9:27). IT IS THEN THAT WE CAN KNOW THE LORD JESUS/YESHUA MESSIAH WILL RETURN.

FOR HIS FOLLOWERS THIS WILL BE A GREAT & GLORIOUS DAY. HOWEVER, FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT KNOW HIM THIS WILL BE THEIR GREATEST NIGHTMARE.

GOD’S PEOPLE NEED TO BE AWARE OF THE TIMES. THAT IS WHY WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO KNOW THE SIGNS. IT IS WISDOM TO NOT LEAVE ANY UNFINISHED BUSINESS IN OUR LIVES. AND IT IS PRUDENT TO BE SHARING OUR “BLESSED HOPE” (Titus 2:13) WITH THOSE WHO ARE LOST, ESPECIALLY LOST LOVED ONES.
