Company is Coming

This is my very first blog.....I pray this will be a blessing and an encouragement to all who reads it! The Lord dropped this thought in my spirit so here we go........... Here we are at the start of the holiday seasons. Everyone is hustling and bustling along; busy trying to make everything perfect. We start making plans; you know families getting together and such. Then we start looking at the house we live in and start noticing things that aren’t as "clean" as they should be. We have gotten so busy with our own lives and neglected some basic things. So here we go in a mad rush to get things in order and cleaned up for our expected company. It is the same way with our spiritual life. We get busy with our carnal life then we get stirred up by the news or a great church service and then we start looking around "our" spiritual house and see that it is not as "clean" as it should be. We have let things creep in and have neglected some basic things with our walk with Christ, you know like prayer, reading, going to church and such; after all company is coming. The bible lets us know about our expected company coming:

 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 KJV

(16)  For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:

(17)  Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

The thing is, we do not know exactly when:

Matthew 24:36 KJV

(36)  But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
But he gives us hints when he will be here:
Matthew 24:37-38 KJV

(37)  But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.

(38)  For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,

Matthew 24:6-7 KJV

(6)  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

(7)  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

So we need to get our spiritual brooms and swifter’s out and get our house back in order for our expected company. We all know what we must do to clean our own house. So I want to encourage you to do what you know to do, to slow down and not get caught up in all the hype, and to remember what it is all about. The first Black Friday has set things in motion for our expected company. Jesus is coming!! So don't get ready but be ready!

Matthew 24:44 KJV

 (44)  Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

May your company find you waiting and watching for his soon coming!
