Between a Manger & a Cloud

Soul Snack 230/14 ... The world mocks the Lord's birth and laughs at the promise of His return. But both these events are as sure as this Christmas season is now present

Jesus has visited earth - Christmas recalls.

Jesus is returning to earth - Christmas promises.

Consider the differences between these two appearances:

Last time - only one star in the sky pointed to Him

Next time - all the stars will fall for Him.

Last time - no room for Him on earth

Next time - He owns earth

Last time - only a few worshipped Him

Next time - every knee will bow down to Him

Last time - He was the loser

Next time - He is Lord

Last time - He was hunted

Next time - He will be the hunter

Last time - He came in humility

Next time - He appears in power and great glory

Last time - He came in peace and joy

Next time - He comes in punishment and judgement

Last time - He defeated evil

Next time - He removes evil

Last time - He arrived in a womb

Next time - He descends on the clouds

Last time - He left earth on His own

Next time - He gathers ALL His friends with Him.

‘Then will appear the sign of the Son of Man in heaven. And then all the peoples of the earth will mourn when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. (Matthew 24:30)

Annually Christmas reminds the scoffers and the saints, the naysayers and the devoted that:

between the manger and the cloud remains the point of decision.
