The Second Coming

14 Feb

Of one thing I am sure,  one day, in victory Jesus will return.  I grew up in a church that tended to make Jesus the cosmic loser who snuck back under a cover of darkness and made a quick snatch and grab and got the heck out (yes I know that is not the theology technically but it is the popular presentation).  Of course this kind of theology had an effect on everything from ecclesiology to missiology and lead to the church being a self-satisfied club sitting in a bomb shelter of it’s own social making waiting for Jesus,  while the world died and went to hell,  or as Steve Camp said, “Hell is Burning While the Church Sleeps.”  After growing to adult hood and being unable to find anyone able to make a tenable case for that kind of theology I began to search the scripture and concluded that indeed Jesus will return,  indeed his kingdom will grow,  and indeed he is both the hero and victor of history.  All of the to say that the following video by Steve Harvey gives me chills,  because I do believe that a victorious second coming is on it’s way:

    It’s amazing how personally moved he was and how he did that in front of such a large audience. That’s what I want out of my brothers and sisters who are creatively gifted: to do good work and give glory to God.
