November: My month of preparing for the coming of the Lord by Pastor Amos Dada



It is with delight and great joy that I welcome you to the month of November, our month of Preparing for the coming of the Lord. Are you ready for the coming of the Lord? "The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God." Isaiah 40:3. There is a voice crying from the heavenlies saying ‘prepare for the coming of the Lord.’ The coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is in two phases, he first came as a lamb to save mankind (fulfilled), the second phase, he will come as a lion to harvest souls and give rewards. This month the Spirit of the Lord is periscoping Christendom and beyond to see how ready we are if Jesus should appear today.



The scriptures are full of how he will come. At the tail end of his exit from this world, they asked Jesus, "When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, it is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power." Act 1:6 "For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.3 While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape."1 Thes 5:1-2. 



The unfortunate thing about this subject is that, some people argue, these words are written some 2000 years ago, and yet Jesus is yet to come. The bible warns God does not count time the way we count time -"But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.2 Pet 3:8" For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday when it is past, and as a watch in the night" Psalm 90:4 People trivialize, jovialize, simplify, derogate, ignore, argue and make jest, about the coming of the Lord. One thing those people with that school of thought forget is that delay is not denial, also that those who share those thoughts like them of old are no more on planet earth, meaning he will either come while you are alive or when you are dead. Whichever one comes first, terminates the period of preparation. So, the issue is not when He  will come, the issue is the period of  preparation. The issue is more personal than corporate.



May we be rapturable!
