A drop of water falls on a still pool and leaves rings. Some would call them ripples, as the action affects the water in the immediate surrounding of the drop. One drop can create quite a stir–an impact.
Because it broke the silence–interrupted the solitude–one tiny drop.
I came–a tiny babe in the quiet of the night.
Most would not see the ‘ripple’ effect.
Most would not believe.
“Why would the Messiah come to shepherds?” “How could this be a King?” They argued amongst their neighbors and families–they argued about Me.
Nothing has changed. . .
There are still those who are unaware–still those who don’t believe. Still those arguing about when I’ll come again–for it’s been a long time, you see.
I did what I said–I came!
I’m coming again, but this time ALL will see. There’s no room for arguments–
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government will be upon his shoulder, and his name will be called “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Of the increase of his government and of peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom, to establish it, and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from this time forth and for evermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.” Isaiah 9:6-7
“With trumpets and the sound of the horn make a joyful noise before the King, the Lord! Let the sea roar, and all that fills it; the world and those who dwell in it! Let the floods clap their hands; let the hills sing for joy together before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world with righteousness, and the peoples with equity.” Psalms 98:6-9
“For as the lightening comes from the east and shines as far as the west, so will be the coming of the Son of man.” Matthew 24:27
“–and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.” Matthew 24:30b-31
“For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a cry of command, with the archangel’s call, and with the sound of the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first; then we who are alive, who are left, shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and so we shall always be with the Lord. Therefore comfort one another with these words.” I Thessalonians 4:16-18
“–Grace to you and peace from him who is and who was and who is to come, and from the seven spirits who are before his throne, and from Jesus Christ the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of kings on earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood and made us a kingdom, priests to his God and Father, to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen. Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, every one who pierced him; and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen. “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:4-8
“He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20
