Daniel 7:13-14; II Peter 3:11-12
Scripture Text: Luke 2:8-14.
8 "Now there were in the same country shepherds living out in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, & the glory of the Lord shone around them, & they were greatly afraid.
10 "Then the angel said to them, 'Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people.
11 For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
12 And this will be the sign to you: You will find a Babe wrapped in swaddling cloths, lying in a manger.'
13 "And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God & saying:
14 'Glory to God in the highest, & on earth peace, goodwill to men!'"
Twas The Night Before Jesus Came
'Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house
Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.
Their Bibles were laid on the shelf without care
In hopes that Jesus would not come there.
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on her lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!
When what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be the day!
The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus, returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth
I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.
In the Book of Life that He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "It's not here," my head hung in shame.
The people whose names had been written with love
He gathered to take to up to Heaven above.
With those who were ready He rose without sound
While all of the rest were left standing around.
I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
If only my heart had been ready tonight.
In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing so near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all!
