Week Four: How is Jesus Coming?

Friends,

I’m so thankful for the Scriptures. God has revealed Himself and his plans for us – giving us a treasure of truth and grace that we can rely on for knowing God, receiving salvation, and wisdom for living.

As we enter a time of growing rebellion and global calamity, it is so reassuring to know that God has spoken clearly about what to expect and how to navigate life as a follower of Jesus.

No topic in Scripture is more encouraging that what God has planned for those who love him as we approach the conclusion of history. I hope you are rejoicing in the details he has given us about his return.

Yesterday, I was able to share with a friend in a wheelchair and encourage him to hope in the return of Jesus and the righting of all things, including his body. It’s going to be glorious!

May your Christmas be blessed with hope!
Even so, Come Lord Jesus! Denis

Adventos Week Three: Why is Jesus Coming?

(Feedback appreciated on the new podcast)

Brothers and Sisters:

Jesus is so smart and strategic. He always has every possible angle covered, knows everything all the time and has a purpose for everything. Nothing surprises him or even occurs to him. He knows every why.

His purposes are always perfect, his goals are all good and he always achieves them. In Psalm 138, David confidently writes that God will achieve his purposes in the King’s life.

God will always meet his plan for us, as we trust him!

We can take comfort that the One directing us will achieve his “Why” for us, and as we follow him, we enter into the stream of his larger purposes.

He is able. He is good. He is willing.

So as we looked at the end of Revelation last week, we can know that Jesus will return and that he will accomplish his Word. It’s a sure thing. Every “Why” for his return will be accomplished.

He is coming soon to:
Complete our salvation
Convert the rest of the Jews
Crush Satan and evil
Command the earth as King
Condemn the ungodly
Create the new heavens & earth
Consummate history

That is the joy of advent. Come Lord Jesus! Denis

Fellow Disciples:

Advent this year feels extra invigorating to me as we focus on the return of Jesus.

If you missed the first week, we are trying a new audio-only podcast, click on podcast above to give it a try!

Is this a good medium for you? Did it work well?

I loved Ofer’s message last Sunday based out of Psalm 2. He reminded us of God’s love for Jerusalem:

Jesus died on the Cross to cover our sin – there.
Jesus rose from the grave to blaze the path to eternal life – there.
Jesus ascended into heaven and poured out his Spirit – there.
Jesus will rule the earth on David’s throne – there.

We should become familiar with this place, especially gaining understanding as to what it means for God, for every believer and for all the current news coming from there.

Let’s pray for the shalom of Jerusalem and our brothers and sisters there today facing the rage of the nations. Lift Moran Rosenblit and Ofer Amitai and their families and ministries there.

May Jesus be our refuge this Christmas season.

Awaiting His return with great hope, Denis

MID-WEEK

Week One: Know and Love The One Who Is Coming!

adventus-fb-cover-photo

Fellow Disciples:

I’m excited to experience Advent with you this year as we focus on the return of Jesus. This is the true meaning of Advent.

As we learned Sunday, Advent translates the Latin Adventus, which translates the Greek Parousia. The latter term almost always refers to the return of Jesus as described in Revelation 19 and 20.

It’s a glorious hope we have as we consider the increasing mess in the world around us. Buddha or Mohammed are not coming back. Jesus is the only one who has promised to come back for us.

He will set everything right. He will judge every wrong. He will vindicate everyone who truly trusts him. He will fulfill every promise of the Father, fully reveal his glory, fully usher in the Spirit.

We who know and love God will be ready to meet Jesus. We who live for Jesus will be ready for eternity. Let’s pray together for the Spirit’s power to be ready and invite others to the banquet.

Awaiting His return with great hope, Denis
