Morning Devotional


Matthew 24:36

“But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.”



O what a promise we have from our Lord that He will return for us one day, the day appointed by our Heavenly Father!!! How different would our life be if we knew exactly the day He was to return for His Bride? We are commanded to work until He comes. We are given the example of how a bride is to be about her business of preparing before her bridegroom comes to take her away to the wedding. So are we to be about our Father's business before He sends His Son. In the old traditions of the Jewish faith, the bride nor the bridegroom knew the day the father of the bridegroom had set aside as the day he would tell his son “go”.

Today we see and hear of many false preachers teaching of a certain day or year or month. Yet our Lord says “no man, not the angels of heaven but my Father only.” know the day or the hour. We should not even concern ourselves with such foolishness. The Bride of Christ and her maids are commanded to watch and work till He comes. We are given things to watch for. He tells us in verse 37 “But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” So we know by this that when we see things in this world getting as bad as they were in the days of Noah that we can expect our time here to be short.

We look around us and we see happenings all over the world and we can know He is coming soon. We don't know the day or the hour but our hope is that it will be soon. This is the promise we have from our Heavenly Father and from the Bridegroom His Son. And O what a promise it is!!! O what a time that will be when our Jesus we shall see!!! When all our hopes come true and the Bridegroom comes and calls us away to the wedding. The wedding of all weddings!!! What a glorious time to be in the presence of our Lord!!! And if we have been counted among the faithful and are a part of His Bride!!! O what joy that will be!!!

Praise ye the Lord!!!
