He is coming with great power and glory!

The LORD reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.  Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.  Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.  His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.  The mountains melt like wax before the LORD, before the Lord of all the earth.  The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the peoples see his glory.[1]

What kind of people aught we to be?  Let us not take lightly His correction and rebuking.  It is His love for us that He does these things.  He takes no delight in punishing the wicked, so let us put aside the sin that so easily hinders.

Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.[2]

He is coming for His spotless bride.  Will you let the work of Christ work in you the righteousness He requires of His people?  Or will you ignore the reproofing found in scripture for the disobedient believer and comfort yourself with smooth words?  While we still may enter into His rest, Let us not be found to be faithless believers who are disobedient disciples.  Reach out to the Lord while He may yet be found.
