Once again I missed my high school reunion. It was the class of 1975, 35th Reunion, in the great city of East Orange, New Jersey. From the photos I saw...they had a great time! I'm one of the few who never came back home after high school and have lived all over the country ever since. From our 5th, to our 35th, I've had to settle for looking at the beautiful faces of people I knew so well, and still care about today. I'm so glad they had a great, great, time together!
But as a believer, one who has accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and personal savior, I look forward to a reunion that I am assured to not miss! The sad thing is that some people will miss this one too. If you don't place your faith in Christ in this life ...you won't be at what I call the Great Reunion! This is for believers only...and it will last for all eternity!
How do I know for sure? What if you pass away before the big day? Well the bible tells us that whether this reunion is today or 100 years from now, when Christ comes to RAPTURE HIS CHURCH, He's bringing all members of His family! Those who passed before us and those who are still alive at the time will be at this party! The King's reunion, will be the party of all time! The bible says in I Thessalonians 4:13-18
13Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him. 15According to the Lord's own word, we tell you that we who are still alive, who are left till the coming of the Lord, will certainly not precede those who have fallen asleep. 16For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. 17After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. 18Therefore encourage each other with these words.
Happy 35th Reunion, East Orange High School Class of 1975! Now make your reservation for Christ's Great Reunion following the Rapture, by recognizing that all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But the good new is that if you receive Christ's payment for you when he died for you on the cross your ticket is paid for!
If you do that, then I look forward to seeing you at the GREAT REUNION... where the good times will last forever, and ever! Make sure my great friends everywhere, you don't miss this one!
