Joel 2:1 Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the LORD cometh, for it is nigh at hand;
God told the children of Israel decades before the Tribulation Period to be prepared. Was God’s time clock off? Why in the world would He have them ready way before Jesus had even been born, before Jesus had died on the cross of Calvary and rose, before He even ascended back into heaven?
He was telling them exactly what He is telling us, watch and be ready to see what I will do. He wanted them to be ready to leave at a moment’s notice. To be vigilant, for His hand is always at work. He wanted them to be ready to serve Him at a moment’s notice. To continually watch to see how they might be a willing and joyful servant. He knew this is how they would want to be found, watching and serving as He might return at just anytime.
He is telling us the same thing today. Blow the trumpet. Let everyone know. Sound the alarm. The churches need to preach the gospel. Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble. Share with everyone about the power and might of God and His judgment to come. For the day of the Lord cometh, yes friend it will not be long until He returns for His own. He knows this is how we would want to be found, watching and serving at the moment of His return. He might return at just anytime. Watch and be ready.
Today might be the day He comes. Are you really prepared? Have you told everyone you need to tell? His return very well might be today.
