Lk 12:40 You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. We still have the image of the household, however, the attitude is not one of anticipation and blessing, but of surprise and loss. We should analyze this briefly. In both cases, the Master's return and the thief's arrival were unexpected The question for each of us is: Are we ready? As Paul finishes this letter to the church in Thessalonica, there are two things that he wants us to understand: There are certain facts as we look to the future event in history The second coming of Christ is the hope of all believers (1 Thessalonians 2:19). To be ready for the second coming, we need to take the following steps: First: come to the Lord as you are. Jesus Christ promised, Him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out (John 6:37) You told me to push this rock, and I've been pushing it for weeks, yet it has not moved an inch! A voice from heaven rumbled among the clouds, then whispered in the man's ear. I told you to push the stone, God said, I didn't tell you to move it. I'm the only one who can move it, and when you're ready, I will. By the way, look at your hands
Wait on the Lord. If you would like a fascinating Bible study, take your concordance this week and look up the word wait. Over and over again God's people were told to wait.

Maybe you are a Christian, and lately you have not been living a faithful and fruitful life for the Lord. You may need to respond to the Lords Invitation for prayer. Possibly, there may be someone who needs to confess their sins before God. You may have been living in secret sin, trying to hide it from God and your brethren
Jesus says to be on guard, to be ready, because we don't know when the Second Coming will happen. But it can help us to prepare for it when we know that getting ready to celebrate the first coming of Christ can also be a way to prepare and be ready for him to come again. One of the themes for Advent preparation is worship Nor do we know that day or hour that we will pass from this life. So Jesus said: Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him (Matt. 24:44). There are faithful servants and evil servants (Matt. 24:45-51). God is man's Creator Knowing you are weak is a wonderful starting point for service. It's where Simon Peter started from when Jesus called him. Seeing the power and holiness of Jesus, Simon fell down at Jesus' knees, saying, 'Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord' (Luke 5:8b). Like he did with Simon, Jesus uses people of contrite spirits to do. He is coming in the air to rapture or take away all who have placed their faith in Him. (1 Th 4:16-17) For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the.
David and Goliath Sermon — Sermon outline by Tom Moore on the trust in God, the preparation and the willingness to fight that we see in David.. INTRODUCTION: A.

In our last study we saw that the blessed hope of the Christian is the personal return of Christ, and that He will return first into the air for His own (1 Thessalonians 4:17), and then to the earth with His own (Jude 14; Zechariah 14:4; Acts 1:11)

First of all, and most importantly, being ready to meet the Lord means you've made sure of your relationship with Jesus Christ, and are trusting only Him to save you —not anyone or anything else, and certainly not any good works you've done. R. A. Torrey put it this way: I am ready to meet God face to face tonightfor all my sins are. For this reason you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will (Matthew 24:44). . . . the master of that slave will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour which he does not know, and will cut him to pieces and assign him a place with the hypocrites; in that place there. They have in mind the warning of II Thessalonians 2:1-3 as follows: Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, that ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand If you do have one, I hope that you will make sure that it is ready to protect you when the time comes. Just as we must make sure our smoke alarm is ready in case of a fire, Jesus tells us that we must be ready for him when he returns. We don't know when that time will be, so we need to make sure that we stay ready

Preparation for the Second Coming of the Lord Partt 1. I am conscious today that God has a design for us greater than our thoughts even or our language, and so I am not frightened of on the line of the spiritual exaggeration, shall I say. I dare believe that God will help me say things to you that shall inspire you to beginning dare to believe God The minute you decide to receive Jesus as Savior and Lord, the power of the Holy Spirit comes into your life. It's the power of the resurrection—the same thing that raised Jesus from the dead . Think of the things you see as immovable slabs in your life—your bitterness, your insecurity, your fears, your self-doubts. Thos In fact, you'll probably not need those precautions for 999 days.

Therefore, keep your eyes on the skies and be ready at any moment to meet the Lord face to face The Lord Himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: then (afterward) we which are alive and remain, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air; and so shall we ever be with the Lord (
