Topic: Who Shall Stand On That Great Day? [16/10/2016]
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? Revelation 6:17. Read: Rev 6:12-17
In the book of Zephaniah 1:14, the Bible says, The great day of the LORD is near, it is near, and hasteth greatly, even the voice of the day of the LORD: the mighty man shall cry there bitterly.
Without being told, you can understand this scriptures that indeed, the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ is near with all the happenings all over the world. That day is going to be great because many great men and women would cry bitterly for mercy, they will seek death, but won't find it. They will try to hide from the face of Jesus, but cannot because it's a day everyone will give an account of his/her life to the giver of life. Fear will grip everyone. The question is, who shall be able to stand on this fearful day of the Lord?
Proverbs 28:1 tries to gives us a glimpse of those that will stand. The wicked flee when no man pursueth: but the righteous are bold as a lion. Only the righteous shall be able to stand on that great day. Those that walk uprightly, those that speak truth in their heart, they would stand firm in His presence. If Jesus finally returns now, would you be able to stand before Him comfortably? Are you upright, righteous in your heart? Examine yourself now.
* Only the pure in heart would see Jesus and be able to stand on that day.
