Distressed Calls

Some while back, there was a warning email going around, which cautioned women not to open their doors at night, if they thought that they heard a crying baby outside their window or door; instead, they were to call the police and report it. The reason for this, supposedly, was there was said to be a serial rapist on the loose that used the recorded sound of a crying baby, to lure women to open their doors, late at night, so that he might gain entry into their homes.

We all know that most women’s hearts are touched at the sound of a distressed infant, and will instinctively go to their aid. However, to do so in this instance meant immediate danger to the rescuer, or the one who was already safe. SNOPES, an online investigative reporting company later stated that this was a false report circulating and to ignore it. 

In the next line of our poem, we talk of the distressed sounds that will reach the ears of the saints, when Jesus returns to gather them into His kingdom. This is no false report and it should not be ignored.

Line 16: So that when He comes in the clear blue skies, the saints will hear their sorrowful cries.

Let us investigate the Scriptural activity, which is recorded to alert us of what will actually happen, when the Lord Jesus Christ returns. There are five things in particular, with which we need to acquaint ourselves, relative to the second coming of Christ. I shall outline them as such, with accompanying Scriptures. Please click on the associated links and read the entire Scripture for yourself.

1. Jesus returns in the clouds, surrounded by all of His attending angels, who gather up the righteous for heaven and every eye will see Him (Jesus). Rev. 1:7; Matt. 13:36-43; Acts 1:9-11; Matthew 24:31

2. The dead saints, those who have accepted Jesus as their Saviour and passed away, will be resurrected and caught up to meet the Lord in the air. Jesus will not walk upon the earth again, at His second coming. I have addressed this fact in another blog, but I mention it again here, because this is one way that millions are being deceived, even today. Many believe that Jesus has come in various places and are actually worshiping a demon/or fallen angel. I Thessalonians 4:16-17; Matthew 24:5; Matthew 24:23-25

3. The living saints, at the time of Jesus’ second coming, will be translated – meaning they will take on new bodies – they too will be caught up to meet the Lord in the air, along with the raised dead. I Corinthians 15:51-55

4. The living sinners will run to the rocks and mountains and cry for them to fall upon them and cover them from the frightening sight of a returning God, who has come in vengeance against those who have rejected His offers of mercy. We are told that to the wicked, His coming will be like a consuming fire that shall burn them alive and leave them upon the earth; no one will bury them. They will be food for the fowl of the air. Revelation 6:15-17; Psalms 50:3-6; II Thessalonians 2:8; Jeremiah 25:30-33; Revelation 19:11-18

5. All of the dead sinners will remain dead and in their graves (one thousand more years after Jesus’ second coming), until such time as the Lord, with the saints descend, in the New Jerusalem and call them forth for final judgment. Revelation 20:1-7;        Revelation 20:11-15

Yes, the saints will hear the sorrowful, distressed cries of the wicked, as they are being destroyed during the second coming of Christ, as well as, during the final judgment, when all of the wicked will be forever destroyed; that includes the devil, death and hell. Oh what a glorious day that will be. I’ve learned my lesson about answering when I am called, I pray that all who have not answered the call of salvation will answer it today, even now!
