"Who then is the faithful and wise servant, whom his master has set over his household, to give them their food at the proper time? Blessed is that servant whom his master will find so doing when he comes. Truly, I say to you, he will set him over all his possessions.” |
Since the days of John the Immerser we have been told, ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.’ “At hand’, means easily reachable. Isn’t it strange that more than 2,000 years have passed and the Kingdom has not been established on the earth yet?
Every generation learns that ‘the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand’. In fact, many generations have been convinced that they were going to see the return of Adon Yeshua in their days, but it did not happen. In a way, it is right that it should be so; if not, how would we feel the necessity to ready ourselves for that Day? And even more important, how would we feel the urgency to teach our children about it? If we did not in every generation apprehend the return of Yeshua ‘at hand’, within two generations the whole message would be lost.
Each year during the High Holidays we rehearse this return of our Master; we look forward to His judgment, His vindication, and final take-over of the kingdoms of this world. He will then usher us into 1,000 years of restoration. All wrong will be made right, day will conquer the night. The lost will be restored, injustice rectified. In the glory of His ruling majesty, as Solomon of old, the great King will listen to our pleas, wipe our tears away, vindicate the souls of those persecuted for righteousness’ sake and challenge those who destroy the earth. May it be soon Abba, even in our days!
PRAYER: May we be ready for that great Day! May we be at that time found doing those which pertain to Your will, not in lip service only, but from the heart living a life that reflects unswerving love and dedication to Your Commandments. May we be found worthy of the title of disciple: one who emulates his Master.
