The Imminence of the Return of Christ

Alarm Clock Christianity

1 Cor 15:51-58,


There is going to be a great alarm clock going off.

Waiting just around the corner there is a moment.

In the twinkling of an eye

At the blast of a trumpet

There will be a great shout

It will involve both live Christians and those who are Ďasleepí in Christ.

Godís Word says, 1 Thes 4:17 we shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.


This alarm clock will:

Change the way we live

††††††††††† It will be the end of the mortal life we know.

††††††††††† But it will be better.

It is the great HOPE for the believer.

Change the way we believe

††††††††††† We will not have nagging doubts any more

††††††††††† For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face-to-face.

Change the way our physical existence

††††††††††† No more death, no more disease, no more burying

††††††††††† Jesus will wipe away all tears.


But this alarm clock will catch many Christians by complete surprise

Many have never studied Godís Word

††††††††††† They have believed in Jesus Christ

††††††††††† But they have never grown in knowledge and understanding

Others have heard but they are burdened by the cares of this world.

††††††††††† They are like the seed sewn among the thorns

††††††††††† The cares of this world have choked them so they bear no fruit.

Some have heard but then run from the truth

††††††††††† They attend church and joyfully receive the truths of Scripture,

††††††††††† But they are afraid to change, so they quit coming.


We are commanded to WATCH for the Second Coming of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Matthew 25:13 Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.†††††††††††

A sign in Ohio along Interstate 75 reads --- "Jesus is Coming, Be prepablack!"

††††††††††† I have a lapel pin, which reads "Perhaps Today!"

Matthew 25:13 SAYS, "Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh."

††††††††††† The songwriter wrote, "Jesus is coming to earth again, what if it were today?"

††††††††††† We are told that the Trumpet will sound.

1.                In the twinkling of an eye we will be caught up to meet Him in the air, and so shall we ever be with the Lord.

My friend, Jesus is coming again!And we are commanded to WATCH!

††††††††††† The parable of the ten virgins waiting for the return of the Bridegroom

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Teaches us to be prepablack and keep watch.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† For we know not the day or the hour wherein he comes.


††††††††††† He could come now;

Not because of the signs of the times, but just because ---

††††††††††† ††††††††††† He said He would come at a time that we would not know.

††††††††††† Nothing needs to be fulfilled.He could be here in minutes.

††††††††††† And when He comes there will be a blast of a trumpet.

††††††††††† ††††††††††† The dead in Christ will rise first,

††††††††††† ††††††††††† Then we, which are alive, will rise and meet Him in the air,

††††††††††† ††††††††††† And so shall we ever be with Him in the air.



††††††††††† Just think, you could see Jesus in the next thirty seconds.



††††††††††† Would it distract you from your responsibilities?I think not.

What might it do, if I think I very likely might be with the Lord in the very next moment?


DO YOU SEE?It would serve to ignite other parts of our Christian life.

1.It would keep us from temptation

††††††††††† I won't be interested in the lusts of this world.

2.It would knock down barriers to soul winning.

I would seek out opportunities to win people to Christ.Close relatives, neighbors, friends, my boss, the mailman, and the checkout lady at the store.

3.It would keep us prayerful

††††††††††† Every moment would be bathed in prayer.

4.It would promote faithfulness

††††††††††† The folks at church would be the sweetest fellowship; the pastor would be sought.

5.It would amplify virtues

††††††††††† Selfish thinking would be gone.We would quite naturally be at our best.



1.He wants us to be ready.

Matthew 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

2.He wants us to be good stewards.

Luke 19:13 And he called his ten servants, and deliveblack them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come.

3.He wants us to be charitable, not judging.

I Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.

4.He wants blameless living (in light of His soon return)

I Thessalonians 5:23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and [I pray God] your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

5.He wants perfect obedience until His return.

I Timothy 6:14 That thou keep [this] commandment without spot, unrebukeable, until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ:

6.He wants joyful expectation.

Titus 2:13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;

7.He wants constant abiding.

I John 2:28 And now, little children, abide in him; that, when he shall appear, we may have confidence, and not be ashamed before him at his coming.



1.You will be honoblack.

Luke 12:37 Blessed [are] those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them.

2.You will fellowship with the King.

John 14:3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, [there] ye may be also.

3.You will be made into the likeness of the King.

Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Philippians 3:21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

4.You will share the glory of the King.

Colossians 3:4 When Christ, [who is] our life, shall appear, ††††††††††† then shall ye also appear with him in glory.

5.You will receive a fadeless crown.

I Peter 5:4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

6.It will be beyond your present imagination.

I John 3:2 Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for we shall see him as he is.



II.                   Be sure you're saved.

1.                You won't be ready for the second coming if you haven't acknowledged His first coming.

2.                Steps of salvation

a.           Recognize your moral position with God.

i. You are a sinner

ii.            Your sin is deserving of eternal punishment.

b.           Recognize Godís plan of Salvation.

i. God sent His only begotten Son

ii.            Christ died for our sins

iii.           We must call upon Him for Salvation.

III.                Be sure you're serving.

1.                The earthly work of the kingdom is in the hands of the church.

2.                Take your place in God's work with His church.

IV.                Be sure you're separated.

1.                God cannot use a dirty vessel.

2.                God says, "Be ye holy for I am holy."

1 John 1:9 "If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness."


We are commanded to WATCH!
