The two Angels beckoned unto the Disciples while looking up on the mountain where Jesus ascended before their eyes. "Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. 10 And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel, 11 who also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand gazing up into heaven? This same Jesus, who was taken up from you into heaven, will so come in like manner as you saw Him go into heaven.”
This is just a tip of the iceberg. I hope what The Apostle Peter and Paul said of his imminent return gives another insights of his earthly returns.Brethren Christ comes.Keep looking up for the trumpet is at hand.Be at alert.

"Christians Mournful Thoughts.... into the New Year?"

To the rest of the world,this is Christmas celebration time and hoping this yuletide will be a blissful and pleasurable one,however among us the Christians this season should have more values than these.The significance of Christ's birth  compare to  mere celebrations we see around us these days remain a wonder.Many celebrates the birth of Christ as if they have different Jesus.
I will like to remind such people that the Bible says in Heb.13 :8 "Jesus Christ,the same yesterday,today and forever", implying no other Jesus than the one who was born,crucified,resurrected,ascended up to heaven,coming back with great power and glory and in the company of His angels. to judge both the heavens and the earth.
In essence, mere celebrations provides no equal match to the personal testimony of our salvation in Christ Jesus.
Where are many Christians today?
God asked Adam,"where are thou?" inside the garden of Eden before they were driven out of the paradise! In the same shoe,the Lord is asking us Christians today "where are thou in the vineyard?"
Many of us as Christians are far below divine expectations on our 'living the life' and this prompts this question times and again..
Many  have lost the glory,the way the children of Israel lost the Ark to the philistines  on the battle field.
Many mourn,the way children of Israel  mourned that the Lord was no longer with them. ".............During that time,all Israel mourned because it seemed the Lord has abandoned them" 1 Sam. 7:2 NLT
Many mourn because they have lost the power of God in their lives.
Many have lost their anointing power.
Many no longer hear God speak again.Many no longer sees visions.
Many mourn because of their lost positions and territories.
Many altars of prayers and intercessions have become a pile of ruins.The enemy now glory over such altars causing the children of God to mourn.
Many mourn because the enemy is cheating them.
Many mourn because of their lost first love.Many mourn because they knew of their emptiness that  they only brag emptiness..
There are many who mourns that the Lord has abandoned them to their fate on marital issues and homes.

The children of  Israel mourned the Lord's absence for twenty bad years! They cherished the memories of the Lord God in their midst and they longed for the period of restorations.
Twenty years look quite long,how sad it was for them to mourned in and out of twenty years?
It must really be a sad situation for them.
Many of us are in their shoe,we also wanted the lost glory,we want happy reunion with our God.We have tasted Him,have felt Him,have seen His great and powerful deeds,we desire to be more victorious,we desire higher grounds but instead to claim them we were deprived,hence the mourning!

Samuel asked the children of Israel to forsake their foreign gods, their idols and their wayward livings,he asked them to draw near to God.He admonished them to stop the year in ,year out mourning phenomenon of  God's absence in their midst.They obeyed and seek God and the mighty hands of God descended once again and they crushed their enemies to dust in battles.

In year 2012,i am assuring you that if you draw closer to God  He will draw nearer to you,then you can rest upon His cares,His voice shall be sweet to your ears,you shall be victorious,and devil and his agents shall mark you out,even if they don't,the Lord with you,you shall wage victorious battles.
Stop the agonies today,invite the God  the children of Israel mourned His absence.He is a living God,that why they mourned that He rejected them.
Give it a try and you soon get back to the proper place God want you to be and should have reached in life.
You can stop the silent weeping and mourning today!
