9/6/21 This Could Be the Day!
As I write this, the time is 8:30 am, Monday, Sept 6. In 25 minutes, the sun will set in Jerusalem and the two days of 'Feast of Trumpets,' Rosh Hashanah, Israel's New Year will begin. The Feast of Trumpets is also known as 'the Wedding of the Messiah!'
We know Who the Messiah is and we know His Bride because we are His Bride!
Jesus said, that no one knows the day or the hour of His return for us and that very phrase always pertains to the Feast of Trumpets; it is celebrated over two days; no one knows the exact time of its beginning because it begins when the one watching, in Jerusalem, finally sees the tiny sliver of the New Moon begin to rise in the East. Then, he goes back and reports to the High Priest and so it begins.
We don't know the day or the hour but it is also true that the Word tells us, we should not be caught off guard, being ignorant of the Signs of the Time. We are to be studying God's Word, like Daniel did as he recognized that the time of Israel's release from bondage in Babylon was near. We should, above all other people, recognize that the time of Messiah's return for His Bride is near, even at the door!
Wake up! Look up! Watch and keep on watching! Yes, today could be the day but yesterday could also have been the day. His return for us is near; watch, wait and faithfully draw near to Him as He, then, draws near to you.
His return for us is not what is most important; what is of upmost importance is what He is doing in us now as He faithfully molds and shapes us into the image and likeness of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, and never forget: His number one tool in shaping us is trials, trials and more trials; each one is meant to form in us, more and more... patience and endurance! And let patience have its perfect result that we may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Today really could be the day and so could tomorrow or the next day; keep looking up for your redemption draws near, very near.
