We must keep FAITHFULLY looking up DAILY to the stars at night holding steadfast unto the COMING of our Lord, Savior and King JESUS CHRIST (Luke 9:23).
Jesus’ disciples yearn to know of his COMING when they asked: “Tell us, [WHEN SHALL THESE THINGS BE]; and [WHAT SHALL BE THE SIGN OF THY COMING, AND OF THE END OF THE WORLD]?” (Matthew 24:3).
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, [TAKE HEED THAT NO MAN DECEIVE YOU]. For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many” (Matthew 24:4-5).
“[FOR NATION SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION], and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. [AND YE SHALL HEAR OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS]: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, [BUT THE END IS NOT YET]” (Matthew 24:6–7).
“When ye therefore [SHALL SEE] the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand)” (Matthew 24:15).
When the time comes to pass and we see these events unfolding when there will arise to power this world’s penultimate ruler, in the spirit of the wicked one “And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh” (Luke 21:20).
“[IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TRIBULATION OF THOSE DAYS] shall the [SUN BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON SHALL NOT GIVE HER LIGHT, AND THE STARS SHALL FALL FROM HEAVEN], and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:” (Matthew 24:29).
“So likewise ye, [WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS COME TO PASS], know ye that the Kingdom of God is nigh at hand; then look up, and [LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; FOR YOUR REDEMPTION DRAWETH NIGH]” (Luke 21:31, 28).
“[AND THEN SHALL APPEAR THE SIGN OF THE SON OF MAN IN HEAVEN]: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other” (Matthew 24:29-31).
“[WATCH THEREFORE: FOR YE KNOW NOT WHAT HOUR] your Lord doth come” (Matthew 24:42). “[BUT OF THAT DAY AND HOUR KNOWETH NO MAN, NO, NOT THE ANGELS OF HEAVEN, BUT MY FATHER ONLY]” (Matthew 24:36).
“Behold, I come as a thief. [BLESSED IS HE THAT WATCHETH], and [KEEPETH HIS GARMENTS, LEST HE WALK NAKED], and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).
“[THEN COMETH THE END], when he shall have [DELIVERED UP] the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power” (1 Corinthians 15:24).
