“Perhaps Today”

Posted: May 15, 2021 in Uncategorized

I have made some little signs with these words on them and have placed them on our refrigerator, in my Bible as a book marker, in my office in front of me, and behind and above me so that when others watch the broadcasts I do, they can see the sign and be reminded of the imminent return of the Lord Jesus Christ for those who are true Christians (John 14:1-3). Yes, it could happen today. Are you ready? Do you know what will happen to those who are left behind? It’s not pretty. [1]

Genuine. We become true Christians (not just nominal or professing Christians) the moment we believe on the Lord Jesus Christ alone, Who died for our sins [once and for all], Who was buried for three days and nights, and Who rose again bodily on the third day with a glorified body consisting of flesh and bones, but no blood (Acts 16:31; 1 Corinthians 15:3, 4; Luke 24:36-43; Hebrews 9:12). [2]

Five Ss. [3] The Rapture is Sure, Sudden, Silent, Selective, and Satisfying. Could you share this information with someone and explain the truth of each of these things from Scripture? If so, you could make a significant difference in someone’s life and discover real joy yourself (3 John 4).

Hope. [4] This glorious event is a “Comforting Hope” for those believers who have had another believer taken from them temporarily in death (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). It’s a “Blessed Hope” and brings joy and happiness to believers who may be experiencing temporary sorrows in this life (Titus 2:13; See Romans 8:18-23). It’s also a “Purifying Hope” and will help us when we’re tempted to sin – act lawlessly (1 John 3:2-4). Our hope is not wishful thinking, but it is a confident expectation based on the promises of God who cannot and will not lie to us (Titus 1:2; John 14:6; 17:17).

Crowns. [5] Furthermore, those believers who love His appearing will earn the “Crown of Righteousness” because it will help them live righteous lives (2 Timothy 4:8). The “Crown of Rejoicing” will be given to Christians who have a part in the salvation of the lost so the “Body of Christ” can be brought to its completion (1 Thessalonians 2:19, 20). The “Crown of Glory” will be given out to faithful Pastor-teachers who help Christians grow and do praiseworthy works which Christ can reward at the “Bema Seat Judgment” (1 Peter 5:4; 1 Corinthians 3:11-15; 4:5). The “Crown of Life” will be bestowed upon believers who resist temptations even to the point of death (James 1:12; Revelation 2:10). The “Incorruptible Crown” will be given out to those believers who discipline themselves properly so they can do their work well (1 Corinthians 9:25-27).

Discouraged? Are you “down in the dumps” and don’t know what to do? Look up to God and cry out to Him for help! “Let us [Christians] therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16).

Assurance. If you’re not a true Christian, or if you aren’t sure you’re saved and headed for heaven, contact us and let us help you gain assurance of salvation once you have met God’s one and only requirement for salvation. He can save any of us, no matter how bad we’ve been, from the penalty of sin, from the power of sin, and ultimately from the very presence of sin. Yes, we can be sure of our eternal destiny before we die (Romans 8:16; 1 John 5:13). Would you like to have this too?

Assistance. We’re here to assist those who are teachable and willing to change for the better (2 Timothy 2:2, 15; 3:16, 17). We can be reached through our website: www.kelseypeach.com.

Suggestion. May I suggest that you make up some signs of your own like mine and place them in various places in your home to remind you of the Lord’s imminent return? Hand some of them out to others too. Until He returns let’s “be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that [our] labor is not in vain in the Lord” (1 Corinthians 15:58).
