The Best Kept Secret
Recently our family hosted a birthday party for a family member and unbeknownst to me our oldest son made plans to be in town for the party. It was a secret held between he and my wife! I was pleasantly surprised when I realized he had arrived from out of town for this party. Many at the party enjoyed this “well kept secret”.
The discourse Jesus had with his followers in Matthew 24, he assured them that after various tribulations, “the Son of man would appear in the sky…he would be coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” After the various signs, Jesus stated, that “He is near – at the door!”
Many students of Scripture have wrongly prognosticated the date and times of the return of Christ in the clouds (the Rapture event). The words of Christ are very clear in Matthew 24:36 “Now concerning that day and hour no one knows–neither the angels in heaven, nor the Son –except the Father only.”
I would consider this as the very “best kept secret” and at times contemplate if “today might be the day!”
Please examine with me in the book of Revelation, “Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true. And the Lord, the God of the spirits of the prophets, has sent His angel to show His servants what must quickly take place.” 7)”Look, I am coming quickly! Blessed is the one who keeps the prophetic words of this book.” Rev.22:6,7 I pray we are all ready and looking up for His imminent return.
