Does God Need Sponsors?

The following email got past my spam filters today. I couldn’t let it go…so here is part of the text:

“God Allah Re-announced His Official Millennium Arrival and The Resurrection.

God Allah announced today He is now seeking sponsors for the purpose of The Resurrection. Applicants may apply by email. Allah states, “I am pleased to update you on My Successful Arrival. I am seeking sponsors, e.g. businesses, organizations, communities, etc. to further the cause of The Resurrection. I want the world to know I love you and am here amongst you. I thank you for your prayers and issue My Press most expediently. I believe although this is an emergency, I advise you to stay calm, pray and welcome Me unto you so I may help you.” For more information please contact Allah Media Relations at …”

Now, I feel sure that this is a money-making scheme and not from any official religious body. But I love the contrast it brings to what the Bible says about the Second Coming of Jesus.

The Bible says that “every eye will see him.” His return will be a time/history/world stopping event. He won’t need a press release to announce it or sponsors to make it happen.

Lately, I have found myself longing for Jesus to return so that I would no longer have to deal with the cares of this world. That is not good motivation … but the desire is good.

“Come quickly, Lord Jesus.” We long to see you. We long to be with you.

Until He returns, we keep working. “Let us not become weary in doing good.” May we continue to share Jesus with every person everywhere.

“The end of all things is near. Therefore be clear minded and self-controlled so that you can pray.”

(1 Peter 4:7 NIV)

Do you long for Jesus to return? Do you hunger for more of Him now?
