神爱世人,甚至将他的独生子赐给他们,叫一切信他的,
不至灭亡,反得永生。(约3:16).

双语灵修丨葛培理布道团:主必快来​(2019.11.15)

看哪,我必快来! 启22:7

Behold, I am coming quickly. Revelation 22:7

如果一个人对你许了一百个诺言,兑现了九十九个,你会怎么想?你一定会认为这个人非常诚实可靠,最后一个诺言同样不会有问题,是不是?耶稣基督同样兑现了他所有的诺言,而且也只差一个:他还没回来。他会回来么?

他当然要回来。旧约和新约都多次提到主的再来。先知以赛亚盼望着弥赛亚的降临,“看哪!我造新天新地;从前的事不再被纪念,也不再追想。” (赛6517)使徒约翰记下了耶稣的话,“我若去为你们预备了地方,就必再来接你们到我那里去,我在那里,叫你们也在那里。”(约143)而整本《启示录》讲述的就是基督的荣耀归来。我们愿意和约翰一样,发出内心的呼唤:主耶稣啊,我愿意你来!

你期待着耶稣基督的回来么?你愿意追寻他,成为他忠实的仆人么?

What would you say about a person who had made a hundred promises to you already and kept ninety-nine of them? You probably would think he was honest enough to fulfill the last promise as well, wouldn’t you?

Jesus Christ has fulfilled every promise He ever made, except one. He has no yet returned. Will He?

In both the Old and New Testaments there are references to the return of the Lord. Isaiah, for example, looked forward to the day when the Messiah’s kingdom would be a reality: “Behold, I create new heavens and a new earth; and the former shall not be remembered or come to mind” (Is. 64:17)

John quotes Christ as saying “I go to prepare a place for you. And . . . I will come again and receive you to Myself” (John 14:2-3). The entire book of Revelation tells of the glorious return of Christ. And we can say with the apostle John, who wrote that book, “Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus” (Rev. 22:20).

Are you looking forward to His return? And are you seeking until that day to be His faithful servant?
