t the beginning of March, last year, my friend began a countdown. Marked on the calendar in her office were the 20 days left until the first day of spring. One morning when I saw her, she volunteered, “Only 12 more days!” A few days later, “Only 6!” Her enthusiasm started to rub off on me, and I began to keep track as well.
“Just 2 more days, Ben!”  “I know!” she beamed.

Read: 
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18


As believers, we have something to look forward to that is even more exciting than the anticipation of budding flowers and lots of sunshine after a long winter. God has made many promises in His Word, and each one has been or will be fulfilled. But the certainty that Christ will return is one of the greatest promises of all. “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. . . . Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air,” and we’ll be with Him forever (1 Thess. 4:16-17).
(1 Thessalonians 4 -Audio-)
   












I will come again and receive you to Myself. —John 14:3


Although no one can know the exact day, we have God’s promise that Jesus will come back (Acts 1:7-11). As we celebrate the coming  spring of 2013, and coming Easter season, let’s encourage each other in anticipation of that day!

He is coming! Oh, the rapture
To behold His lovely face,
And to tell Him how I love Him,
Who has saved me by His grace. —Dimmock
Christ is coming—perhaps today!
(John 14 -Audio-)
   

Rapture




Bible in a Year:
Numbers 31-33; Mark 9:1-29
