Christ Will Come in Glory to Judge the World
Sufferings lead to the Second Coming.
Those who are living then will see Jesus.
Everyone will then surrender to God.
Then He will judge and reward and punish.
We must be vigilant and quite watchful.
We know for certain that Jesus will come.
He used the simile of the fig tree.
Like winter hopes our hope should not waver.
During Advent, we should be vibrant.
The Second Coming may not be distant.
We could certainly die in an instant.
Jesus Christ was extremely consistent.
We are hopeful that the world will not end,
‘til the Bears have the most Championships.
