For those of us who are New Testament believers, saved by grace and engrafted in as children of faith. We not only have the New Testament writings, we have the Old Testament too. A wealth of knowledge is poured upon us and it really comes down to taking the time out to embrace it. I recently had a question about the Old Testament, and I did a little search. I came across several scriptures which answered my questions. As I stand before you in this article, I realise how the old Testament is an answer book for all of us who are post Christ’s coming.
Looking at the scriptures and watching programmes about the Bible, it made me realise a few things. If you have scripture telling you something in advance, what is the best thing to do? I would say position yourself the best you can, many people did not do this before Christ came and I fear that many will make the same mistakes as their ancestors, according to the opportunity of inheritance by faith. For all of us who are interested in the Bible and more importantly Jesus, we must understand that Christ is coming back. Will you be Pharisee-like and debate with Christ or will you be prepared (Christ warned us to be – “Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” )? They did and these were the men supposed to be learned in scriptures. I am definitely striving for the masteries as Paul explained it (2 Timothy 2:5). If Christ is coming back AGAIN what should you do, knowing the people who expected him rejected him at his first showing? Who is expecting him now?
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
