Are you Prepared for the return of Christ?

Preachers Corner http://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

Each believer should give the Lord Jesus the first place in all things and we should be prepared for his return. The Bible tells us several times that there is coming a day when the Lord will return for his people. Are you prepared for the return of Christ? It is very easy to lose focus on the fact that Christ is coming back. As you listen to this address I trust you may be encouraged by God’s word and be ready for the return of Christ.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation

1 Thessalonians 1:8-10 for the word of the Lord sounded out from you, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but in every place your faith which [is] towards God has gone abroad, so that we have no need to say anything;for they themselves relate concerning us what entering in we had to you, and how ye turned to God from idols to serve a living and true God,10 and to await his Son from the heavens, whom he raised from among the dead, Jesus, our deliverer from the coming wrath.”

1 Thessalonians  2:6-8nor seeking glory from men, neither from you nor from others, when we might have been a charge as Christ’s apostles;but have been gentle in the midst of you, as a nurse would cherish her own children.Thus, yearning over you, we had found our delight in having imparted to you not only the glad tidings of God, but our own lives also, because ye had become beloved of us.

1 Thessalonians 2:17-20 17 But we, brethren, having been bereaved of you and separated for a little moment in person, not in heart, have used more abundant diligence to see your face with much desire;18 wherefore we have desired to come to you, even I Paul, both once and twice, and Satan has hindered us.19 For what [is] our hope, or joy, or crown of boasting? [are] not *ye* also before our Lord Jesus at his coming?20 for ye are our glory and joy.”

1 Thessalonians 3:11-13But our God and Father himself, and our Lord Jesus, direct our way to you.12 But you, may the Lord make to exceed and abound in love toward one another, and toward all, even as we also towards you,13 in order to the confirming of your hearts unblamable in holiness before our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all his saints.”

1 Thessalonians 4:1 “For the rest, then, brethren, we beg you and exhort you in [the] Lord Jesus, even as ye have received from us how ye ought to walk and please God, even as ye also do walk, that ye would abound still more.”

1 Thessalonians 4:9-18 “Now concerning brotherly love ye have no need that we should write to you, for ye yourselves are taught of God to love one another.10 For also ye do this towards all the brethren in the whole of Macedonia; but we exhort you, brethren, to abound still more,11 and to seek earnestly to be quiet and mind your own affairs, and work with your [own] hands, even as we charged you,12 that ye may walk reputably towards those without, and may have need of no one.

13 But we do not wish you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them that are fallen asleep, to the end that ye be not grieved even as also the rest who have no hope.14 For if we believe that Jesus has died and has risen again, so also God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus.15 (For this we say to you in [the] word of [the] Lord, that *we*, the living, who remain to the coming of the Lord, are in no way to anticipate those who have fallen asleep;16 for the Lord himself, with an assembling shout, with archangel’s voice and with trump of God, shall descend from heaven; and the dead in Christ shall rise first;17 then *we*, the living who remain, shall be caught up together with them in [the] clouds, to meet the Lord in [the] air; and thus we shall be always with [the] Lord. 18 So encourage one another with these words.)”

1 Thessalonians 5:9-11because God has not set us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,10 who has died for us, that whether we may be watching or sleep, we may live together with him.11 Wherefore encourage one another, and build up each one the other, even as also ye do.”

1 Thessalonians 5:9because God has not set us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ,10 who has died for us, that whether we may be watching or sleep, we may live together with him.11 Wherefore encourage one another, and build up each one the other, even as also ye do.”

1 Thessalonians 5:23 “Now the God of peace himself sanctify you wholly: and your whole spirit, and soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
