Do you want some good news today? How about a word or two that is positive? Are you troubled today? If you are, and I may say, should be, troubled today? Listen: God's Word says, “And you who are troubled rest with us.” That is, be at ease. Quit your worry. It is not over yet. There is an unfinished story. If you are troubled, rest with u...s. Well, you say, “Pastor, it’s so dark, this world is getting more evil each day.” Yes, it’s gloriously dark, because the darkest hour of the night is just before the sunrise. Our hope is not in politics, our hope is not in sociology, our hope is not in science. The only sure hope for our world is the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Think about who is coming again. Underscore this: “when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed.” The Lord Jesus is who is coming again. We’re not looking for some event in history. We’re looking for Jesus Christ to be revealed. And when He’s revealed, He’s going to be revealed as the Lord Jesus. Today He is despised. He is rejected. He is mocked. But He is coming as the Lord Jesus to be glorified and admired. Just say to yourselves, " I'm not looking for the undertaker, I'm looking for the Uppertaker."
