Early on an April morning in 2002, while worshipping, i heard this word shouted twice.
i was alone on my porch . Who had spoken? It was not the sound of one voice ,but of multiple voices shouting at the same time. i didn't understand. What was the meaning of this word?
i searched all day, in many types of concordances. But it was not until i looked in a Greek Lexicon that i discovered the meaning of this word. Here is the mystery revealed:
Parousia: The future visible return from heaven of Jesus!
Why Lord, are You telling me? Why in a strange language? Why did i have to search all day to discover it's meaning? You should be telling someone famous who has a national platform! Someone who could cause an effective difference!
It was not until i realized that if the Lord had just said,"I'm coming back," i might have just shouted Halleluia and done nothing more with it. But through the Holy Spirit, He revealed a truth to me that could not be mistaken. Jesus is coming back soon ! I'll shout it from the rooftops!
I still do not know why He chose to tell me. Perhaps i simply came so close to my Heavenly Father during those moments, that i overheard a heavenly conversation.
For whatever reason He allowed me this privilege. i beg you ,Prepare your heart! Donot reason in your own mind that everything is just fine. Examine yourself. Are you ready for His coming?
