let us press on to acknowledge Him.
As surely as the sun rises, He will appear;
He will come to us like the winter rains,
like the spring rains that water the earth."
As surely as the sun rises . . .
Each morning that I wake, I do not wonder if the sun is going to rise. It is something that I expect, that I take for granted. It is something that is sure. Few things are certain, but this is one of them.
As is Christ's return. He will appear. He will restore. He will renew.
"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him. They will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads. There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever. The angel said to me, 'These words are trustworthy and true'" (Revelation 22:1-6).
There are so many prophecies fulfilled and promises kept in God's Word, that I believe this one is well. He is faithful. He will do it. As surely as the sun rises.
"He who testifies to these things says, 'Yes, I am coming soon.'
Amen. Come, Lord Jesus" (Revelation 22:20).
Grace be with you while we wait.
