'Even So, Come, Lord Jesus!'

This is the time God's people through the ages have longed and prayed for: Your kingdom come.

Terror of all kinds fills our world today. Suicide bombers, anthrax, radioactive "dirty" bombs, killer epidemics, kidnappings, gangs, rapes, murders, wars.

Everywhere we look, the trend is downward. Man's inhumanity to his fellow man is growing worse, and even the most optimistic can find it harder to fight the feelings of foreboding that our world is on a course of self-destruction.

Jesus Christ looked down through history and foretold this spiral of sorrows leading to an unprecedented time of trouble to occur before His return (Matthew 24:7-8, 21). Our spiritual Savior also promised to save humanity from total annihilation by His glorious coming (Matthew 24:22, 30).

As King of Kings He will set up God's wonderful, righteous Kingdom (Revelation 11:15; for more information on these prophecies, download or request our free booklet You Can Understand Bible Prophecy).

This is the time God's people through the ages have longed and prayed for: "Your kingdom come" (Matthew 6:10).

John, an apostle of deep love and compassion, was given a wonderful vision of a time beyond all the troubles, plagues and war necessitated by man's unrepentant evil—the time when God will wipe away all tears, when there will be no more sorrow or crying (Revelation 21:4).

At the end of the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, three times John recorded Christ's wonderful prom-ise: "I am coming quickly" (Revelation 22:7, 12, 20). In verse 20 John, and all Christians, respond with deep yearning: "Even so, come, Lord Jesus!"
