Hymn 123: Show Thy Presence in Our Lives
· God has a Plan for this world, and nothing that happens is a surprise to Him!
· God frequently reveals aspects of His Plan by way of prophecy, then fulfills it in due time, often with an early and latter dual fulfillment.
· John the Baptist was the forerunner of the coming of the Messiah, but the prophecies relating to him can also apply to preparation for the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
· Mary and Joseph were selected by God to fulfill many prophecies in Scripture without realising they were doing so.
· Jesus spoke about His return and what we need to do to be prepared for it.
· Are we willing for God to include us in His Plan relating to Jesus Christ’s return, and do we hold the hope of being preserved wholly to witness that great event?
