For as the lightning flashes and lights up the sky from one side to the other, so will the Son of Man be in his day. Luke 17:24
But for you who fear My name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. Malachi 4:2

But far be it from me to boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ . . . Galatians 6:14
For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. 1 Corinthians 2:2
Let the motto upon your whole ministry be - "Christ is All!" - Mather

It's Sunday, But His Return Is Comin'!

It's Sunday
The devil couldn't defeat Him
Sin couldn't stop Him
Death couldn't handle Him
And the grave couldn't hold Him!
And His return is comin'

It's Sunday
The tomb is empty
The grave clothes are folded
The stone has been removed
The Son has risen
His work is finished
And we all know
That His return is comin'

It's Sunday
Hope has been restored
Sin has been conquered
Death has been defeated
The strong man has been bound
Now all the nations will come to Him
Before His return is comin'

It's Sunday
Mary is crying
The disciples are trembling
But soon they'll be rejoicing
Then they'll be a preaching
And tellin' the whole world about Him
Callin' all men everywhere to repent and believe in Him
Because His return is comin'

It's Sunday
The priests are bribing
The elders are lying about what happened
The soldiers are telling stories
And the Jews are believing the lie that His body was stolen
But His return is comin'

It's Sunday
On the Emmaus road
Jesus new light has bestowed
From Moses to the prophets He has showed
It's all about Him – the Word is sowed
All allegiance to Him is fully owed
Because His return is comin'

It's Sunday
Thomas is doubting
But soon he'll be a shouting
As he touches the scars of his dear Savior
And then He'll be declaring
Jesus as his Lord and his God
And someday all will be proclaiming
Either willingly or unwillingly
That Jesus Christ is Lord!
Because His return is comin'

It's Sunday
Peter has gone fishing
Ashamed that he denied his Master
But soon he'll be restored
Oh Peter, do you love Me?
Yes, soon he'll be restored
By His loving, merciful, and patient King
Who will send Him to feed His sheep
Because His return is comin'

It's Sunday
His disciples will be commissioned
To teach others to obey all He has commanded
And all but one of them will die
To lift His name on high
But all their enemies don't know
That His return is comin'

It's Sunday, but His return is comin'
Are you ready?
He's coming back on a white war horse to make war
His name is Faithful and True and The Word of God
His eyes are like a flame of fire
A sharp sword comes out of His mouth
He will tread the winepress of the fury of the wrath of God the Almighty
People will cry out for mountains and rocks to fall on them to shield them from the wrath of the Lamb
His wrath and judgment are coming
It's only Sunday, there's time for you to turn from your sins, trust in Him, and accept His terms of peace
It's only Sunday, but His return is comin'

It's Sunday
The new creation has begun
There is now no condemnation for those at peace in Him
All our sins have been forgiven
God has cast them behind His back
And He remembers them no more
As far as the east is from the west, He has removed our sins from us
He has cast them into the ocean floor
We are now to walk in the newness of holy lives
We are no longer slaves to sin, but slaves to righteousness
Because His return is comin'

It's Sunday
All things are now working for our good
Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus
In Christ all things are ours
And though there's still a lot of pain and suffering
His return is comin'

It's Sunday
Sin is still tempting
The world is still deceiving
The flesh is still warring
The devil is still prowling
Children are still being abused and dying
Racism is still dividing
Cancer is still killing
Wombs are still barren
Marriage is still hard
Singleness is still lonely
Hopes are still deferred
Dreams are still broken
But His return is comin'

It's Sunday
People are still poor
Loved ones still die
Tragedies still undo us
Crime is still rampant
Abortion is still killing
Airplanes are still disappearing
Ferry boats are still sinking
All manner of heart-breaks are still happening
Tears are still flowing
But let me tell you something
His return is comin'

And on that great day!  On that great day of the everlasting wedding day
He will wipe away every tear from your eyes
There will be no more sin
There will be no more death
There will be no more pain
There will be no more heart-break of any kind
There will be no more loss or loneliness
There will be no more sadness but only ever increasing joy for all eternity
There will be a new heavens and a new earth where only perfect, perpetual, pure righteousness dwells
The earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea
You will be eternally saved, safe, and satisfied beyond your greatest imagination
And everything sad will become untrue!

It's Sunday
It's only Sunday
But His return is a comin'!
