WEEK 6: REVERE JESUS: THE LAMB IN GLORY!: Are you ready for our King who comes in glory?
Day 36: Wed 21 Mar, 18
“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” John 1:29
Are you ready for our King who comes in glory?
“And then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory.”
Worship: Be Enthroned
We are “waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Saviour Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.” Titus 2:13-14 “He who testifies to these things says, ‘Surely I am coming soon.’ Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” Revelation 22:20
“Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning and be like men who are waiting for their master to come home from the wedding feast, so that they may open the door to him at once when he comes and knocks. Blessed are those servants whom the master finds awake when he comes… You also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Luke 12:35-48
We are in a season of final warning, in which God is shaking principalities and powers in the heavens, and on earth, His church, government and personal values.
“See that you do not refuse him who is speaking. For if they did not escape when they refused him who warned them on earth, much less will we escape if we reject him who warns from heaven. At that time his voice shook the earth, but now he has promised, “Yet once more I will shake not only the earth but also the heavens.” This phrase, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of things that are shaken—that is, things that have been made—in order that the things that cannot be shaken may remain. Therefore, let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.”
“Then will appear in heaven the sign of the Son of Man, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” Matthew 24:30 “Behold, he is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him, even those who pierced him, and all tribes of the earth will wail on account of him. Even so. Amen.” Revelation 1:7
“When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne.” Matthew 25:31 “When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.” Colossians 3:4 “When the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the unfading crown of glory.” 1 Peter 5:4 “I am coming soon. Hold fast what you have, so that no one may seize your crown.” Revelation 3:11
Follow Jesus as His Disciple

Pray All People Hear the Gospel
Lord God Almighty, we tremble before You, mindful of those who will perish if they do not hear the gospel and surrender to Your Sovereignty. Lord have mercy! We pray for harvest workers for the salvation of unreached people from our local area and the Queensland towns of Nebo, Coppabella, Moranbah, Clermont, Capella and Maryborough where the Queen’s Baton is today; to the nations represented at the Commonwealth Games; and the unreached Islamic Arab Levantine people group, 226,000 in Tunisia, North Africa. Lord quicken those who can carry the gospel to them!
