Surprise Surprise!!! April 4
Saying, The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. And they told what things were done in the way, and how he was known of them in breaking of bread. And as they thus spake, Jesus himself stood in the midst of them, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. But they were terrified and affrighted, and supposed that they had seen a spirit. Luke 24:34-37
Just about the time man thought, we’ve done away with this Jesus, they got a surprise. He was back alive and had risen from the dead. Just for a moment, imagine having seen Him crucified, dying in front of your very eyes. Then three days later, He appears in the room to talk to you. That’s what you would call a major surprise. Well today many in our world, both those in high places and low places are trying to erase God and His Son from our society. Trying to do away with His moral standards and His teachings on what to believe and how to live. It may even seem that they make progress. It sure seemed that way when Jesus died on the cross. But surprise surprise, He appeared again. And so will it be again, in one way or another our God will show Himself great in this very time we live. It may be by saving some of the very ones that are against Him(just ask Paul). He may send a great awaking, causing many to turn back to Him. Just read about some of the great revivals that have been in the world. They usually came at desperate times. Or it could be that God actually has had enough of this worlds sin and sends His Son to appear again in the sky to take the believers with him into the heavens.(now that’s what you would call a surprise). Then pours out His wrath against a sin filled world. Either way we’re probably in for a big surprise as to what our Lord will do next. Know this, He is the one making the decisions over the future of this earth and those upon it. Let’s bow before Him this very day and put our trust in Him and Jesus Christ His savior.
