“This same Jesus who was taken up from you into heaven will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.” Acts of the Apostles chapter 1 verse 11[b].
It seems we have spent 12 months just waiting. Waiting to get out of a Lockdown, waiting to have a haircut, waiting for the ‘R’ number to come down and waiting for certain dates on the route map out of the pandemic.
There is a lot of waiting in the Bible too. After Adam was told about the coming of the Messiah, Jesus we have many hundreds of years. The Jewish people while slaves in Egypt had to wait 400 years before they could leave and go to the promised land. Jesus had to wait 30 years before He began His public ministry. The disciples waited 3 days before the resurrection of Jesus from the dead; then a further 50 days before with the power of the Holy Spirit they preached the Gospel to the world.
The Christian Church is still waiting for something else to take place and that is the return of Jesus Christ as the King and Lord of all.
Are you prepared for the return of Jesus?
