The most vital inquiry anybody can ask him/herself is this: “Jesus is coming – am I prepared?” To know whether you are prepared there must be an association of confidence with God’s Word. What does “prepared” mean regarding God’s message to devotees? What is required to make somebody prepared for Jesus coming? Furthermore, how can one realize that he/she is prepared for His wanting it to be a by and by magnificent occasion?
“Ready” as far as Jesus’ arrival it appeared to be a vigilant state in Luke 21:36, as takes after: “Be dependable on the watch, and ask that you might have the capacity to get away from all that is going to happen, and that you might have the capacity to remain before the Son of Man.” Watching, in reference to the indications of the end given in the part of Luke 21 (additionally, in its parallels, Matthew 24 and Mark 13), infers knowing the signs, remembering them as they occur, and cautioning Christians of the time. Luke 21:28 says, “When these things start to occur, stand up and lift up your heads, in light of the fact that your recovery is moving close.”
Among the signs appeared in Luke 21 and its parallels are the accompanying: a pervasiveness of misleading, wars and upsets, country will ascend against country, and kingdom against kingdom, quakes, starvations and diseases in different spots, frightful occasions and awesome signs from paradise, mistreatment, double-crossing, contempt, Jerusalem will be stomped on by the Gentiles, signs in the sun, moon, and stars, men will swoon with fear, worried about what is going ahead the world, and the superb bodies will be shaken. These are frightening signs, as humanity is vulnerable despite a large portion of them. Be that as it may, Christians will perceive the creating of these signs as notices, and in addition confirmation of the proximity of Jesus’ showing up.
To be prepared, obviously, requires starting salvation. Do I know Jesus Christ as my own Savior? “I reveal to you reality, whoever hears my statement and trusts him who sent me has endless life and won’t be denounced; he has traversed from death to life” (John 5:24).
Salvation is a continuous procedure, too. He depicts the testing of one’s confidence as a procedure that seems to be “of more prominent worth than gold, which perishes despite the fact that refined by flame.” If the testing of confidence is to be contrasted with the refining of gold, at that point confidence’s refining by trials happens so that “your confidence. . .might be demonstrated honest to goodness and may bring about acclaim, eminence and respect when Jesus Christ is uncovered” (1 Peter 1:7). “For you are getting the finish of your confidence, the salvation of your souls” (1 Peter 1:9).
The last consequence of salvation will be the reclamation of the body. Paul says, “. . .We sit tight enthusiastically for our reception as children, the recovery of our bodies” (Romans 8:23). This, he clarified, would happen when Jesus shows up in the joy. “For the Lord, himself will descend from paradise, with a boisterous order, with the voice of the chief heavenly messenger and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. From that point onward, we who are as yet alive and are left will be getting up to speed together with them in the mists to meet the Lord noticeable all around. Thus we will be with the Lord everlastingly” (1 Thessalonians 4:16-17).
What occurs between beginning salvation and last reclamation to make one totally prepared? What is the final product of the trial of one’s confidence? 1 John 3:2-3 demonstrates the condition of availability that invites Jesus in His second approach. “. . .When he shows up, we might resemble him, for we should consider him to be he is. Everybody who has this expectation in him refines himself, similarly as he is unadulterated.” To consider Jesus to be He intends to resemble Him. To prepare oneself for His coming is to purge oneself in compliance to His summons (1 John 2:3).
Also, “in the event that anybody complies with his oath, God’s adoration is genuinely made the finish of him” (1 John 2:5). Am I prepared? The most vital inquiry one can ask him/herself requires self-examination. Is God’s adoration made the finish to me?
God’s affection will be a light when trust comes up short and dread holds men’s hearts in dread of what is happening upon the earth. Furthermore, God’s kin will be a light on the grounds that their expectation is in Jesus and does not come up short (Matthew 5:14-16). They will lift up their heads searching for His returning, trusting His guarantees of finish and last salvation unto the reclamation of their bodies when He shows up.
