Throughout the Old Testament times the Jews had earnestly been anticipating the coming of a Messiah. And yet when Jesus Christ came, they did not recognise him as their Messiah. He didn’t match their criteria.
As Christians we eagerly await Christ’s second coming. As the new year begins we earnestly pray that this may be the year of his return.
Will we recognise him?
Christ was offered up once. He took away the sins of many people. He will also come a second time. At that time he will not suffer for sin. Instead, he will come to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. Hebrews 9:28 (NIRV)
