""But let him who glories glory in this, that he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord."" - Jeremiah 9 V24
"The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance." - 2 Peter 3 V9
People who know the Lord Jesus Christ as their Saviour should glory in knowing Him for their names have been written in Lamb's Book of Life. One may wonder why our Lord is not returning to take His bride and what is really keeping Him from coming. Well, our Lord is longsuffering and He extends His lonvingkindness to all sinners and He is waiting for the last person of His bride to repent and receive Him. But time is indeed short for we know absent from the body is present with Lord for those who know Him. Whether one spends eternity in the presence of the Lord or in darkness is a decision we make on earth. And God has invited everyone to receive His saving grace. One day the Lord will indeed return and He will execute judgment with righteousness. Praise God!
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
