The Bright Horizon of His Second Coming

Often do I cheer myself with the thought of the coming of the Lord. We preach now, perhaps, with little success; “the kingdoms of this world” are now “become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ;” we send out missionaries; they are for the most part unsuccessful. We are laboring, but we do not see the fruit of our labors. Well, what then? Try a little while; we shall not always labor in vain, or spend our strength for naught…The shout shall be heard, “Alleluia! Alleluia! The Lord God Omnipotent reigneth.” For that day do I look; it is to the bright horizon of that second coming that I turn my eyes. My anxious expectation is that the sweet Sun of righteousness will arise with healing beneath His wings, that the oppressed shall be righted, that despotisms shall be cut down, that liberty shall be established, that peace shall be made lasting, and that the glorious liberty of the gospel of God shall be extended throughout the known world. Christian! If thou art in a night, think of the morrow; cheer up thy heart with the thought of the coming of thy Lord. Be patient, for

“Lo! He comes, with clouds descending.”

Be patient! The husbandman waits until He reaps His harvest. Be patent; for you know Him who has said, “Behold, I come quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every man according as his works shall be.” ~ C.H. Spurgeon
