Jesus is coming soon - Great Tribulation
devotion by Sis. Bala Samson
He is coming; He is coming...
"Then there will be great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever shall." - Mathew 24:21
Friend, please do not turn a deaf ear and blind eye to the incidents that are happening around the world. Jesus said in Luke 21:25, "And there will be signs in the sun, in the moon, and in the stars; and on the earth distress of nations, with perplexity..." verse 28 continues to say, "Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near." Friend, as a Christian we cannot ignore what is happening around the world; what do these things tell us? That the Coming of the Lord is at hand! I know there is work to do, family to feed, vacation ahead and shopping to do; but do you know where you would spend your eternity? I mean, the Bible talks a lot of eternal life and you need to live your life worthy to be able to spend your eternity with God. Now spare some time and listen today!
How can God hold back judgment?
Rev. Billy Graham: You are trying to hide in an illusive, imaginary world. But….sooner or later we must leave our dream world and face up to the fact of God, sin and judgment."
How many of you dread to read the newspapers because, all you read of is: violence, crime, adultery, divorce, abortions, pornography, sodomy, wickedness - the stench of sin has reached the nostrils of God!
After rapture when the people of God will be transported from earth to heaven, in other words when the Lord Jesus Himself will gather His people up and take them to heaven, the next seven years will be tribulation period for the people left behind on the earth. THIS IS JUDGEMENT PERIOD!! It is referred to as a day of heavy darkness and gloominess. The book of Revelation largely talks about this and it is called the GREAT DAY OF THE WRATH OF GOD ALMIGHTY!
It will not be as some people imagine, merely a bit of trouble and persecution, you just cannot even imagine the magnitude of sufferings that people have to undergo during this time. It will be worse than the Hiroshima bombings in Japan, worse than the war during Hitler days and worse than any of the world war that you had heard of. The kind of disasters that the world would face will be in form of hurricanes, drought, disease and violence. May be we are facing them already but what we see is just a FORETASTE OF WHAT IS YET TO COME………….Beware & get ready!
In the book of Revelation we read of tremendous visions given to the apostle John; he describes the visions just as he saw them. In chapters 6 to 16 we read of seven seals, seven trumpets and seven bowls of wrath. To many the book of revelation has just remained a mystery and many Christians do not understand the truth and thus live a reckless life. Friend, I want to warn you that the WAGES OF SIN IS DEATH. Psalm 96:13 says, "He is coming, He is coming to judge the earth." As each seal is broken, we see events unfold upon the earth!
The Lord has a complaint against His people... "My people know not the judgment of the Lord."
"As I live, saith the Lord, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live, turn from your evil ways, for why will you die?" - Ezekiel 33:11.
What should I do now to be saved from the great tribulation period?
  1. Be convicted of your sins, confess and leave them immediately.
  2. Accept Jesus Christ into your life and have an active, living, minute-to-minute relationship with Him.
  3. As commanded in the Bible, take full-immersion water-baptism as a public covenant with God and as a sign of your new relationship with Jesus.
  4. Attend a good, strong, Holy Spirit-filled Church and fellowship with good believers.
  5. Read the Bible everyday to know of His Second Coming, be prepared and prepare others as well.
God bless you!
