Behold He Cometh with Clouds

Written by Horatius Bonar

Behold the Lord cometh with ten thousand of His saints. — Jude 14

Behold I come as a thief! Blessed is he that watcheth and keepeth his garments, lest he walknaked and they see his shame. — Rev. 16:15

MY DEAR READER, Let me speak to you a few words respecting this solemn subject — the second coming of the Lord. In doing so, I shall confine myself, as much as possible, to the words of God Himself, both because they are the fittest and the plainest —“quick and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword”; and because I do not wish you to evade the matter, by saying that I am pressing upon you the uncertain opinions of man. “He that hath an ear let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.” Reader! “That same Jesus who was taken up into heaven shall so come in like manner as He went up into heaven” (Acts 1:11). The heavens must receive Him until the times of restitution of all things (Acts 3:21). Then shall He come in His own glory, and in His Father’s glory, and with all His mighty angels, to call you to account for the deeds done in the body. Are you ready for His coming? Can you abide His presence? Will you be able to stand before the Judge of all? He once came in meekness; He shall then come in majesty; He once came in shame; He shall then come in glory; He once came in weakness; He shall then come in power; He once came to save; He shall then come to judge — to give to every man according as his work shall be (Rev. 22:12).

The Sprinkling Of Blood

by C.H. Spurgeon

“WE ARE COME TO THE blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.”-Hebrews 12:24.

Reader, have you come to the blood of sprinkling? The question is not whether you have come to a knowledge of doctrine, or an observance of ceremonies, or to a certain form of experience, but have you come to the blood of Jesus? The blood of Jesus is the life of all vital godliness. If you have truly come to Jesus, we know how you came-the Holy Spirit sweetly brought you there. You came to the blood of sprinkling with no merits of your own. Guilty, lost, and helpless, you came to take that blood, and that blood alone, as your everlasting hope. You came to the cross of Christ, with a trembling and an aching heart; and oh! what a precious sound it was to you to hear the voice of the blood of Jesus!

The dropping of His blood is as the music of heaven to the penitent sons of earth.

We are full of sin, but the Saviour bids us lift our eyes to Him, and as we gaze upon His streaming wounds, each drop of blood, as it falls, cries, “It is finished; I have made an end of sin; I have brought in everlasting righteousness.”

Oh! sweet language of the precious blood of Jesus! If you have come to that blood once, you will come to it constantly. Your life will be “Looking unto Jesus.” Your whole conduct will be epitomized in this-“To whom coming.” Not to whom I have come, but to whom I am always coming. If thou hast ever come to the blood of sprinkling, thou wilt feel thy need of coming to it every day. He who does not desire to wash in it every day, has never washed in it at all. The believer ever feels it to be his joy and privilege that there is still a fountain opened. Past experiences are doubtful food for Christians; a present coming to Christ alone can give us joy and comfort.

This day let us sprinkle our door-post fresh with blood, and then feast upon the Lamb, assured that the destroying angel must pass us by.


“Behold, I come quickly.” —Revelation 3:11

“Even so! come, Lord Jesus!”

“Why do the wheels of Your chariot tarry?” Six thousand years this world has rolled on, getting timeworn with age, and wrinkled with sins and sorrows. A waiting Church sees the long-drawn shadows of twilight announcing, “The Lord is at hand.”

Prepare, my soul, to meet Him.

Oh! happy days, when your adorable Redeemer, so long dishonored and despised, shall be publicly enthroned in the presence of an assembled universe, crowned Lord of All, glorified in His saints, satisfied in the fruits of His soul’s travail, destroying His enemies with the brightness of His coming—the lightning-glance of wrath—causing the hearts of His exulting people to “rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory.” Prepare, my soul, to meet Him!

Let it be a joyous thought to you—your “blessed hope”—the meeting of your Elder Brother. Stand oftentimes on the watchtower to catch the first streak of that coming brightness, the first murmur of these chariot wheels. The world is now in preparation! It is rocking on its worn-out axle. There are voices on every side proclaiming “He comes! He comes to judge the earth!”

Reader! are you among the number of those who “love His appearing?” Remember the attitude of His expectant saints: “Blessed are those servants whom the Lord, when He comes, will find WATCHING!”


The astounding truth is, we will one day be face to face with Jesus. This is a truth we read and hear about, and should know…but one many of us don’t take seriously. I know it has only been in the last year, that this has become very real to me personally. For any one of God’s people, that face to face encounter may not be at the end of a long life–but could in fact happen today…

The Great Salvation which has been bestowed upon those of us who cried out to God in true repentance, was free. It was a gift bought and paid for, by the Son of God on Calvary 2000 years ago. But, we are told that to continue to abide in Christ, is our responsibility: We are also told to examine ourselves often, to make sure we are still abiding in the Faith.

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. 2Cor.13:5

Examine Yourself

  1. Awesome articles…you sure do have a knack at digging up good stuff.🙂 I’ve printed out the first one for study and have saved the others to my hard drive to read in the near future. Looks like there’s a lot of good information at that web site too that I will be digging into. Thank you once again, Jaunita.

  2. Hey Mark…you’re welcome…thanks for popping in.

  3. WOW! AWESOME! I pray that God will use this to wake up christians, and encourage the lost of their need for God and salvation. Our time is so short.

  4. Thanks PJ

    I love your Face2Face page.I could listen to Paul Washer’s sermons and read your pages/posts all the day long! Your writings and his kind of preaching is what “we” the church need.I cannot imagine not being with him PJ. I just cannot! I would rather long for the days when i did not know that i was on the road to the eternal loss of the well being of my soul,then to not be ready for his coming…

    Yes. I would like you to pray for me.

    • I cannot imagine not being with him PJ. I just cannot!

      Me either…

      Yes. I would like you to pray for me.

      I sure will. Since putting up the blog i’ve tried to remember those who stop by in prayer, whether they ask for prayer or not. But i’ll be sure to pray for you specifically Yeshua is the Lord of Glory.

      I’m glad you were blessed by this page! We all do need to examine ourselves often…don’t you think so?

      Its so easy in todays world of growing deceptions and lies, to find ourselves on a ‘different’ path, if we don’t check often to make sure we’re continuing to abide in the faith.

  5. Thank you PJ.

    I agree we must examine ourselves often and always…Yes abide in the faith and stay on the ‘narrow’ path,that leads to life everlasting!

  6. This would be my living Hell… to think … it is hard to imagine this, but to think of Him, His Holy Ghost, and Jesus not being near, now this would be it. Each and every day it is a Battle… struggling to do what is Right to God and not do what is right to my flesh. These months have been very challenging. No matter what I do, no matter what I say or don’t say someone is always being tormented by my presence. So I wondered: my presence? I seriously do not want to get into some psychological analysis over this; yet I am praying the presence isn’t mine which is stirring up the tormented faces. What can we say, I am not certain, I only know Truth has been burned into my mind and I am guilty for speaking. One day I sat there and I asked God to cleave my tongue, ‘don’t let me speak… don’t let me say a word’… please just let me listen! Goodness gracious the teacher looked straight at me with a smile and asked the question, and I hesitated to answer. Carefully I listened to see if anyone else would respond, and when no one responded I did. Goodness I found myself trying to make peace with the lady behind me; for her face was so distorted with displeasure after hearing my response, and I knew this was heading in the wrong direction. Do not ask God to give your tongue back. Take the lashes. Do not apologize. You aren’t taking up for God, you are doing the Will of God… Speak His Truth. Let His Truth burn in your brain.

  7. We were shown the Nate Pfeil video at our men’s meeting on Saturday, and the reaction was black and white. Either it was well received or hated.

    I had a pastor who once said, ” If you throw a rock into a pack of dogs, you know which one you’ve hit by who yelps the loudest.” This video obviously hit a lot of men in their current lives. The most common response among the men? “we are under grace”, and “Jesus is faithful to forgive us” , both true, but neither condones sin because of grace.

    As Paul the Apostle said, ” What then? Shall we continue in sin that grace might abound? God forbid! How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?”
    Romans 6:1-2

Music from Broken Chords

Down in the human heart, crush'd by the tempter, Feelings lie buried that grace can restore; Touched by a loving heart, wakened by kindness Chords that were broken will vibrate once more. From the Hymn "Rescue the Perishing" by Fanny J. Crosby
