Coming Soon… Everywhere!

09 Jun

You are in your car driving home. Thoughts wander to the game you want to see or meal you want to eat, when suddenly a sound unlike any you’ve ever heard fills the air. The sound is high above you. A trumpet? A choir? A choir of trumpets?

You don’t know, but you want to know… So you pull over, get out of your car, and look up. As you do, you see you aren’t the only curious one. The roadside has become a parking lot. Car doors are open, and people are staring at the sky. Shoppers are racing out of the grocery store. The Little League baseball game across the street has come to a halt. Players and parents are searching the clouds and what they see, what you see, has never been seen before…

As if the sky were a curtain, the drapes of the atmosphere part. A brilliant light spills onto the earth. There are no shadows. None.

From every hue ever seen and a million more never seen, riding on the flow is an endless fleet of angels. They pass through the curtains one myriad at a time, until they occupy every square inch of the sky.

North. South. East. West.

Thousands of silvery wings rise and fall in unison, and over the sound of the trumpets, you can hear the cherubim and seraphic chanting, “Holy, holy, holy.” The final flank of angels is followed by twenty-four silver-bearded elders and a multitude of souls who join the angels in worship.

Suddenly, the heavens are quiet… All is quiet. The angels turn, you turn, the entire world turns and there He is… Jesus.

Through waves of light you see the silhouetted figure of Christ the King. He is atop a great stallion, and the stallion is atop a billowing cloud. He opens his mouth, and you are surrounded by his declaration:

“I am the Alpha and the Omega.”

The angels bow their heads…

The elders remove their crowns…

And before you is a Figure so consuming that you know, instantly you know: Nothing else matters…

Forget stock markets and school reports, sales meetings and football games. Nothing is newsworthy. All that mattered, matters no more…

For Jesus the Christ has come!

I don’t know who wrote this originally, but thanks to my friend Larry for sending it to me. This should give you shivers running down your spine, because one day, this is what’s going to happen. Every eye will see Him and the nations of the world will mourn, because they know they have rejected Him and there is no more grace to be found. They will mourn for themselves and the certainty of the separation from God that they will face for all eternity in hell.

All of the things that seem to matter so much to us right now will not matter one bit. All that will matter is whether our names are written in the Book of Life or not.
