It was very early in the morning on the first day of the week. The women took the spices they had prepared. Then they went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from it. When they entered the tomb, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. They were wondering about this. Suddenly two men in clothes as bright as lightning stood beside them. The women were terrified. They bowed down with their faces to the ground. Then the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? Jesus is not here! He has risen! Remember how he told you he would rise. It was while he was still with you in Galilee. He said, 'The Son of Man must be handed over to sinful people. He must be nailed to a cross. On the third day he will rise from the dead.' " Then the women remembered Jesus' words. (Luke 24:1-8)Many are still wondering . . . After thousands of years, hundreds of fulfilled prophesies, and millions of testimonies as to the authenticity of Jesus Christ, many still wonder about Him! Was He who He said He was? Did He really do all those miracles . . .suffer all that agony . . . go to the cross . . . rise from the dead . . . Is He coming back . . . is He really God? For those who did not believe then . . . it is too late. For those still alive today, there is time . . . today! Jesus is still pleading, but not from the manger, the cross, or from the grave. He invites us all to join Him in heaven:
"Let those who do wrong keep on doing wrong. Let those who are evil continue to be evil. Let those who do what is right keep on doing what is right. And let those who are holy continue to be holy." Look! I am coming soon! I bring my rewards with me. I will reward each person for what he has done. I am the Alpha and the Omega. I am the First and the Last. I am the Beginning and the End. Blessed are those who wash their robes. They will have the right to come to the tree of life. They will be allowed to go through the gates into the city. Outside the city are the dogs and those who practice witchcraft. Outside are also those who commit sexual sins and murder. Those who worship statues of gods, and everyone who loves and does what is false, are outside too. I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this witness for the churches. I am the Root and the Son of David. I am the bright Morning Star. The Holy Spirit and the bride say, 'Come!' Let those who hear say, 'Come!' Anyone who is thirsty should come. Anyone who wants to take the free gift of the water of life should do so." (Revelation 22:11-17)How many now joyfully await His coming? How many more need to know? It's not too late! Remember His words . . .
