Ever since I can remember, I would hear my parents talk of the soon return of Jesus as if it were the next year, the next week, or the next day. I don’t think I thought I would be here long enough to be as old as I am, but alas, we’re still here. How much longer will we have to wait? The bible doesn’t provide us with the answer to this question, but god has given us a very good reason why he has allowed us to wait for so long. The bible says that god is not slow in keeping his promises as we understand slowness. He is patient He doesn’t want anyone to be lost, but he wants everyone to be saved in his kingdom and live with him forever. (2 Peter 3:9) So believers have been looking up since Jesus ascended in to Heaven about 2000 years ago and many have fallen asleep while awaiting his return, with hope in their hearts, believing unto death. Others have grown weary and lost hope and still others have become distracted by the perplexities of life and the things of this world and their love for the Savior and his kingdom have grown cold.
Brothers and sisters we have need of much patients that after we have done the will of God, we will receive the reward. The purpose of this musical project is to lift our thoughts towards Heaven, to cause the things of this world to lose their value and to give us a better view of things to come. It is to remind you and me that the promise of his soon return is as sure as the sun in the sky. It is to remind you and me that no matter how good or bad things get in this world it won’t last forever. It is to keep us alive in the hope that one day he who is coming will come and he will not wait any more. My prayer for you and for myself is that this musical project will cause the hope of his coming to burn brighter in our hearts and if for whatever reason he doesn’t come in our lifetime, my prayer is that the blessed hope of his return will burn brighter in our hearts on the day we take our last breath than it does now. If I don’t meet you dear listeners here on earth then look for me in the kingdom. I’m looking forward to meeting you there and standing with you on the sea of Glass before the throne of God.
God bless you!
