He led me to the gate, the one that faces east, and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice sounded like the roar of mighty waters, and the earth shone with His glory.
In this season of Advent we are celebrating the coming of God into our world. His first coming was humble, almost unnoticed, ignored by most. However, the Bible talks about Christ's second coming as being a global event. No-one will be able to ignore it. He will break into our world in all His glory and power:
and every eye will see Him,
including those who pierced Him.
And all the families of the earth
will mourn over Him.
This is certain. Amen.
"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God,
What a vision this is! I wonder what you imagine when you read these verses? Do you long for this day or fear it? God comes. He has already come to us in Jesus. He comes to us now in the Holy Spirit, but one day He will come in all His Glory! And on that day there will be no ignoring it, saying we don't believe. The only thing we will be able to do is fall flat on our faces and worship.
