Monday's Dose - 17th October 2011 - Prophetic Confirmation

"In my Father's house are many mansions ... I am going there to
prepare a place for you. And if I go ... I will come again and
receive you unto myself that where I am, there you may be also" - (John

According to an article in Christian Victory, Holiday Inn had a plan
to erect a hotel on the Mount of Olives. They sent engineers to
survey the hotel site to make preparations for building. Their
conclusion was that it couldn't be done as they found that there was
a geological fault under the Mount that is causing it to split.

Some 2,500 years ago the Bible, as stated by the prophet Zechariah,
said that this split (possibly caused by a great earthquake) will
take place when Jesus Christ returns to earth to put down all evil
and rule and reign forever. "Then the Lord will go out fully armed
for war, to fight against those nations. That day his feet will stand
upon the Mount of Olives, to the east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of
Olives will split apart, making a very wide valley running from east
to west, for half the mountain will move toward the north and half
toward the south." - Zechariah 14:3-4, (TLB).

Christ's first coming is an indisputable fact of history. We can be
just as certain of his second coming because he promised that if he
went away he would return. Numerous prophecies regarding his first
coming were fulfilled in minute detail. We can be just as certain
that all the prophecies regarding his second coming will also be
fulfilled in minute detail. Zechariah's prophecy and the evidence of
the geological fault under the Mount of Olives is just one more
confirmation of the validity of God's Word and the hope we have of
Christ's return for his own. The important thing is to be ready
because when we least expect it, Christ will come.

His coming will be somewhat like the earthquakes in California or
anywhere else, we know they are going to come, but they strike
without warning. The important thing is to be prepared ahead of time.

If Christ should come today, would you be ready? You can be by
confessing your sins to him and inviting him into your heart and life
as personal Lord and Savior.

Prayer: Our Almighty Father in Heaven, thank you for the promise that
Jesus is coming back again to take all his true followers to be with
him and you forever in heaven. Thank you, too, for this wonderful
hope. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In
Jesus loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Monday and God Bless you all.
