DAILY?READINGS: Exodus 26:31 to 27:19; Psalm 72; Acts 15:22-35
Behold he cometh with clouds and every eye shall see him and they also which pierced him: and all kingdoms of the earth shall wail because of him. Revelation 1:7
Before Jesus died His enemies accused Him of being a deceiver. They taunted Him on the cross that He saved others but could not save Himself! In looking for their Messiah, He was not what they had expected—a man upon a cross. What a shock it will be to Israel’s conscience when their Messiah re-enters Jerusalem bearing the marks of Golgotha’s crucifixion! Then His identity will be vindicated and the claims He made validated. Those too, of every nation acknowledging Him as Lord and Saviour, will rejoice at His appearing. —Drew Craig
O day of days! Hail Thy appearing!
Thy transcendent glory forever shall shine.
