“so Christ, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for him.” Hebrews 9:28 ESV
My take: Yes indeed; what a mighty promise. Christ shall come to earth uncloaked twice. Because of the great twice man has a twice option. Everyone will either be born twice or die twice. Once of each is a given, twice we have a major role in its outcome. This verse makes it very clear who will be saved, if you are in position to avoid dieing twice?
Do you want a major clue if it will be you? Its right here. Are you eagerly waiting for Jesus’s majestic 2nd coming right now, this very moment?
Check out John 3:1-15.
Because we Americans right now have the most properous, cushiest life of any people in history we are at a disadvantage. Because why do we need saving? Its all good. Well, mostly. Well, not totally. The things Americans complain about are often so petty and different. We are indeed blessed but that can be very dangerous if we are lulled into complacency or pride.
Thankfully this country was founded upon Christian values and its time, all the time, not to lose site of God’s blessing and eagerly await our Hero’s return this time as a lion not a lamb.
My prayer: Jesus, thanks for being so dutiful and loving.
