Receive, Remember, and Repent for Christ Will Return
Revelation 3:3 (KJB) Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee.
This scripture verse gives a man the four “R’s” of personally knowing Christ.
Receive, remember, repent, and return of Christ.
These words are presented in an order in which a man can personally know Christ and be prepared for His sure return to this earth. Perhaps you have only heard about God and His Son Jesus Christ, but you do not have a personal relationship with Him nor have you received His gift of forgiveness of sin. Being without Christ is a spiritually dangerous place in which to reside.
A man would be smart to take heed to the ending of this verse:
“I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee…” for it is straight to the point and true, Christ is going to return to this earth one day soon. When He does He will only take with Him those people who have received Him, remembered Him, repented of their sin, and were awaiting His return.
Those who have chosen to ignore things of God, forget what they have heard, hang on and relish their sin, will be caught by surprise on this earth when Christ returns or be without fellowship with God forever upon their arrival in the eternal realm.
