While we’re on Beginnings and Endings, I thought I’d bring up the very last ending, the Second Coming, ’cause Jesus is coming again. That will be a beautiful ending and beginning for us, but not for others.
When I was a new christian back in the 70’s (I’m dating myself now), there were all sorts of debates about the Rapture going on that didn’t matter. We were all concerned about how and when the Lord was going to return and what it was going to be like. I’ve gotten past that now, because it doesn’t matter. We have to be ready, every day for the Lord to return. We have to live our lives as if in the next moment He will return. We need to be about the Lord’s work every day.
This is a song that was a big christian hit back in the day… I used to sing it with my guitar and usually a bunch of people would join me. The video on this is from the 70’s, ’cause most of us grew up with Vietnam, war protests and political unrest. It seemed like the Lord was going to show up any moment and that is the time when this song was written.
