Cherish The Hope Of Christís Coming Again!
Throughout the entire New Testament the one supreme hope to which the heart and mind of the believer is constantly turned is the return of His Lord and the believerís glorification with Him. Here are a few of the many passages pointing to it:
"Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13).
"Your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with Him in glory" (Col. 3:3-4).
"Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is. And every man that hath this hope in Him, purifieth himself" (1 John 3:2-3).
"Unto them that look for Him shall He appear the second time without sin unto salvation" (Heb. 9:28).
"This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into heaven" (Acts 1:11).
"And, behold, I come quickly; and My reward is with Me, to give every man according as his work shall be" (Rev. 22:12).
