John 14:3 “And I go to prepare a place for you. I will come again and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there you may be also.”
It’s always exciting to watch the count down to a rocket launch, sending men and women and their supplies into space. I’ll never forget the Apollo program. The excitement watching us launch moon missions, opening up space travel that was only dreamed about before.
When you read the old science fiction novels of space travel and going around to different planets, it was so far-fetched, impossible to imagine. But, it became possible, because of people’s desire to explore the unknown. The wonder and intrigue of going into space is still there in many people. It is making a come-back. The space program is gearing up to go back to the moon, then it will make it’s first attempt (hopefully in a very few years) to land on Mars. The count down begins.
Today, we are living during another great count down. The coming of the Lord. Time is ticking down. We are close to the 3,2,1, lift off. These are the final days before the coming of the Lord. Are you prepared? When Jesus Christ calls to His people, “Come up here,” will your name be among those that are called?
