“Remember, says the Spirit, that those who are called Mine shall stand with Me one day to execute judgment upon the wickedness of the world. Even ten thousands of My saints shall come with Me. So stand with Me now regarding the issues, so you are prepared to stand with Me on that day.”
…Behold the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints (Jude 14).
As saints, we are being positioned to stand with Jesus to execute judgment on the evil of this world someday. Jesus is going to return and we will be at His side. Jude 15-19 describes the behaviors that will receive these judgments. It’s sobering to think that we will be standing at Jesus’ side to bring His righteous government upon this world. According to verses 20-22, we are to remain busy in the meantime preparing ourselves. Jude gives us four things that we are to be doing. We are to be building ourselves up by praying in the spirit (verse 20), keeping ourselves connected to the love of God (verse 21), showing mercy to those whose faith/walk with God is wavering (verse 22), and sharing the Gospel so as to save others from hell while remaining uncontaminated by the world. That means we are going to have to make some determined decisions not to become entangled by the world’s ungodly principles. We can’t soften worldly ideals to make them
somehow palatable or let them influence how we think or operate.
You are one of God’s ten thousand saints being prepared. As part of that preparation, it’s time to stand by His side even now as one of His ten thousand saints. Let’s get ready because He is coming!
Lord, thank You for the honor that I will have one day to stand with You to execute Your righteous judgments on this world. I choose to stand with You now and ask that You would help prepare me. In Jesus’ Name, amen.
