WHEN HE COMES - 18
"His Presence…Our Need"
"Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. And He said, "Where have you laid him?" They said to Him, "Lord, come and see."”
John 11:33-34 NKJV:
What a simple thing when He comes ... “Lord, come and see.” Once He sees the people, the land and the desperate condition of men, He will act. He knows what to do! No more a ministry of struggling. It is no more “a trying to do something for God” but “Come, O Lord and see.”
It is His coming that brings revival. It is His coming that turns sorrow to joy. It is His coming that brings life to the dying...
"Oh, that you would rend the heavens! That You would come down! That mountains might shake at Your presence. As fire burns brushwood; as fire causes water to boil - to make Your name known to Your adversaries, that the nations may tremble at your presence. ”
Isa. 64:1-2 NKJV:
Note the emphasis of this scripture... “At Your presence...” All we need in our lives and in our labours is His presence! His presence is what makes the difference. Let us all concur at this point: “Oh LORD, come and see”… as we cry to the Lord for His presence!
