Occupy Until He Comes – Episode 22

We should not be worried about the rapture or the tribulation or what we may go through. We have seen the saints of God all through history go through very difficult times. As difficult as it can be, we need to trust the Lord for what is going to happen in our days. We should prepare ourselves to walk through whatever we must experience, and to accomplish in this earth for the Lord His works during this time period that we are in. We are to do business until He returns with the talent that He has given us. We are to occupy until He comes.

Show Notes:

In these days of transition and tribulation that proceed the establishment of God’s Kingdom, we must have a clear and fixed focus on who we are and what the will of God is for our lives.

 

Christ has gone to the right hand of the Father and is working to fully establish His Kingdom in the heavenly realm. When that is accomplished, He will return. But until the day He returns, we are to focus on doing business with the talents that He has given us. We are to occupy until He comes. We are to focus upon accomplishing what is necessary in this earth, so that when He returns, preparations are complete for Christ to establish His Kingdom on this earth.

 

We have work to do. There is a lot to be done from where we are today until the coming of the Lord. He has given us the apostles and prophets to prepare us to do the work of God on the earth. As each of us individually moves in the gifts that God has given us, the Body of Christ will come to its place of maturity. And then we will see the great return of Christ in the establishment of His Kingdom.
