Imminency/Imminent

Imminent: (adj.) impending, about to happen.

Imminency: refers to the doctrine that Christ could appear at any moment.

Many references in Scripture points to an any moment event when Christ returns to take His bride to be with Him forever. Scripture admonishes Christians to watch, be ready, and to look for Christ to return to gather His people to Himself.

Jesus Christ warns: “Keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. . . So you must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect Him” – Matthew 24:42-44

It is written: “Now about times and dates we do not need to write to you, for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying ‘Peace and safety,’ destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape” – 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3.

It is also written: “We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in Him. According to the Lord’s own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we all will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words” – 1 Thessalonians 4:14-18

It is also written: “Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not sleep (die), but we will ALL be changed – in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, and we will be changed. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality” –     1 Corinthians 15:51-53.

According to the Scriptures listed above Jesus Christ is going to return to take His people to be with Him forever. We don’t know the day or hour, but we know it could happen any moment, that is why we long for His soon return. We are to always be ready, watching for His imminent, His sudden return.

An Invitation: If you haven’t accepted God’s free gift of forgiveness yet, but you would like to experience the New Life He promises, simply pray this prayer: “Jesus Christ, I choose to believe you are the Son of God and God’s only sacrifice for the forgiveness of my sins. I admit it, I’m a sinner, please forgive my sins, and I ask you to come into my life, I want to be born again. Save me Jesus. I don't understand it, but please save me Jesus. Please show me how real you are! Also baptize me with your Holy Spirit; I want everything you have for me. Thank you for accepting me.”

If you’re a skeptic you can pray a prayer like this: “God, if this is true about Jesus Christ and a new life, please help me understand so that I can accept your gift of eternal life that you purchased for me by the sacrifice of Your Son.”

God wants to lavish His grace and love upon your life, for more information go here myfriend:
