And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also.

Jesus is Coming
There is coming a day when we will see the Lord Jesus face to face.
One of the greatest promises of scripture is the return of Christ. Jesus promised there would come a time when He would return for His followers. Since the day Jesus ascended into heaven, Christians have been looking forward to the return of Christ.
Jesus promised that when returns, He will take us to a special place He has prepared for you and me. For 2,000 years, He has been preparing this special for His bride (those who are His followers). As the bride of Christ, we will spend eternity in the place Christ has made for you and me.
The Bride Must be Ready for the Groom
In Jesus’ day, when a couple was to be married, the future husband would go and prepare a place for them to live. It might take weeks, it might take months, but he would not return for his bride until everything was ready. The bride was to be prepared anytime word of her husband’s return came.
Jesus said He was preparing a place for each one of us. As His follower, your dwelling place for all eternity is perfectly designed just for you.
We Must Always be Ready.
We don’t know the time, day, or even the year of His return. Anyone who tells you they know is mistaken. Our responsibility is to simply be ready. We are to live as though His return could be today.
When Christ returns, we will spend all of eternity in His presence. We will experience all the joys of a renewed heaven and earth and will reign and rule with Him for all eternity.
Today, let me remind you; Jesus is coming. It may be today or tomorrow. It may be this week or may be in the distant future. We are to be watching for His return the way the bride waits for her returning husband.
Look at that promise once again.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. – John 14:3
Make this confession today.
Jesus is preparing a special place for me in heaven.
When He returns, I will spend eternity in His presence.
I don’t know when He will return, but I am living like it will be today.
When He returns, He will establish His eternal kingdom.
