The Wise Still Seek the King!

"He . . . is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings and Lord of lords, who alone has immortality, dwelling in unapproachable light, . . . to whom be honor and everlasting power. Amen."
-1 Timothy 6:15-16, emphasis added

The First Coming of Christ is all about a holy God, Jesus, coming into the world to die for sinners. As we rejoice these days in the First Coming of Christ, may we not be neglectful of rejoicing in the anticipation of His Second Coming as well. For this true King, this perfect High Priest, the only Savior of mankind, will return soon to take us home--and so shall we forever be with the Lord!

But if you are only acquainted with Him, and do not yet really know Him, you need to be mindful that the days of promised terror loom on the horizon. Christ's description of these days includes people dying of heart failure because they witness such inescapable horrors. Thus, now is the time for the wise to seek the King--to flee to the safest spot in the universe--Jesus Christ!

Are you wisely learning to seek and find Him with all your heart? Are you learning to worship Him in the power of the Spirit and in the truth of His Word?
