Revelation of John 1:7
Look! He is coming in the clouds. Every eye will see him, even those who pierced him. Every tribe on earth will mourn because of him. This is true. Amen.
The coming of Jesus should be a happy event, because when He comes, injustice ceases, death ends, sorrow and disease are no more.
But- before this – judgment.
That is why it says every tribe mourns.
The sin committed, the lies uttered, the immoral thoughts considered. We will be judged for all these.
Yet Jesus has this assurance-
Revelation of John 1:18
and the living one. I died, and behold I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys of Death and Hades.
He can release prisoners from death and Hades!
Who else can we turn to, who else can we ask forgiveness from- but the One who holds the keys to our freedom?
Turn, confess and ask for forgiveness this day.
