Psalm 24 – God Is Coming – Are You Ready?

Are you ready? God is coming. We don’t know when, but He will be here. At any moment. So it’s not even a question of “will you be ready”. No. It’s a question of “are you ready”. Now.

Was Jesus really part of creating the earth and everything in it?

Let’s start right at the beginning.

Ps 24:1 The earth is the LORD’S, and everything in it,
            the world, and all who live in it;

We read that everything belongs to the LORD. But who is the Lord? God? Of course. But who is God?

This is especially an issue for Muslims. The Qur’an says that Christians believe in a polytheistic God. Multiple Gods. That we believe the Father, the Son (Jesus), and the Holy Spirit are three different Gods. But, that’s not the case.

Yes, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are introduced to us at different times in the Bible. However, from the very beginning, literally, they were all there. Three “persons” in one God.

Who is the King of Glory?

The actual English words, “King of Glory”, appear only in this Psalm. However, if we look at verse 8, we get a good picture of this King of Glory.

Ps 24:8 Who is this King of glory?
The LORD strong and mighty,
the LORD mighty in battle.

Jesus is that King of Glory, as we see below.

Of course, we know in when Jesus was born, His first coming, He came as the suffering servant in Isaiah.

But His second coming, in Revelation and as prophesied in various Old Testament books, will be as the conquering King. The best example of this in Revelation is the passage about The Rider on the White Horse. About Jesus. BTW, since I mentioned the Qur’an earlier, I want to add something else here. The Qur’an says Jesus is not the Son of God. That God has no Son. It also has Jesus as the rider on the Pale horse. The horse of death. Sadly this is a misconception of who Jesus is. And it loses the entire Christian salvation promise.

That begs a question. Are we ready? Now? Not later, because that might be too late. Are we ready now?

I wrote some stuff about Islam above. Muslims are not ready for Jesus to return as the Bible says. Why not? Because their scripture tells them something else. The Qur’an says believing Jesus is the Son of God is wrong. And that their salvation is based on a weighing of the good and bad things they did in life. Very much different from what Jesus taught.

People who don’t know about Jesus won’t be ready either. They can’t be. That’s why Christians are to spread the good news of the Gospel.

But people who do know, and don’t care/think they’ll get around to Jesus eventually/just plain don’t want to believe – they won’t be ready either.

To be honest, I’m glad I lived as long as I have, because I don’t know that I would have been ready before either.

So one of the big reasons I write is so fewer people will want to ask at the end of their lives – “Why didn’t you tell me?” That question comes from a book I read, a true story, of a Muslim with a best friend who was Christian. But he learned about Jesus from someone else. He was able to ask his friend, while they were both alive, “Why didn’t you tell me” about Jesus?

You almost certainly don’t know me. You’re not my best friend. But I don’t want you to be vainly asking, too late, “Why didn’t somebody tell me?”

So I’m telling you. If you don’t already know the truth about Jesus / don’t know Jesus, please don’t wait too long to find out.
