This is the 1st line of a humbling song that I’ve recently found on YouTube: “If Jesus come tomorrow to spend some time with you…would you answer all His questions or lie to hide the truth?” We should know that there’s nothing that we can hide from Jesus, but is it possible that we should ever be so unwise as to think that we could? Adam and Eve tried to hide from God in the Garden of Eden when they’d sinned; their sin brought them loss of righteousness and separation from God, ultimately death 1 Corinthians 15:22 For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive.
The 2nd line of the song: “Would you welcome Him with open arms or even let Him in? If Jesus comes to- morrow, what then?” Are we ready? Have we forgiven our family members, friends or acquaintances of perceived wrongs…have we asked their forgiveness or forgiven ourselves? Will Jesus find us rejoicing in His love and peace or will He find us angry, tired, and in conflict? Will He find us sharing our faith with the weak and the lost? Is there anything in your life that you regret? Is there anything in your life that you have not repented of? Is there anything in your life that could keep you from sitting at the feet of Jesus? Jesus said in John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.
The 3rd’ line of the song: “If Jesus calls your number, could you leave today? Are you ready to lay down your worldly goods and walk away?” No one knows when Jesus will be coming back, but we do know that He is…He has told us to be prepared…He will arrive when we least expect it. Have you allowed your love of the world to get in the way of your walk with God? Are you doing your best with the last moments of your life to serve Him, to share Him, to bring as many people to Him as possible before the end comes? Jesus said in Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
The 4th line of the song: “Would it take a month of Sundays, to tell Him of your sin? If Jesus comes tomorrow, what then?” James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man: Do we recognize our own sin? Do we blame our sins on others? Are we so wrapped up in “ME” and the world that we don’t see our sin for what it is? The entire Bible from the beginning to the end addresses sin. From the Garden of Eden and through all the words of Jesus in the New Testament, it’s made clear that God, our Father, abhors sin. This is why He sent His Son Jesus to us, to cloak us in His righteousness because He knew that man could not live without sinning,
1 John 1:9 f we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Heavenly Father gave us a way out, but because we have a way out do we continue to sin? God Forbid!
The 5th line of the (chorus) song: If the sky turns black as midnight in the middle of the day Isaiah 34:4 And all the host of heaven shall be dissolved, and the heavens shall be rolled together as a scroll: and all their host shall fall down, as the leaf falleth off from the vine, and as a falling fig from the fig tree. Revelation 6:14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. Both of these verses tell us that the heavens will be rolled up like a scroll. I remember when Mt. St. Helens, a volcano in Washington state blew it’s top…it was an eerie feeling as I watched out the window and the darkness rolled in like a tidal wave…of course, the news had informed us that it was the result of the volcano blowing up and the cloud of ash headed our way…so it wasn’t scary, but it certainly was unexpected.
The 6th line of the (chorus) song: “And somehow you knew that Jesus would soon be on His way” Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.”
The 7th line of the (chorus) song: “Would you have to beg forgiveness or could you reach out and take His hand” Jesus said in Matthew 7:14 “Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.”
If Jesus comes to- morrow, what then?
