It seemed to be a monumental day that was approaching for Back to the Future fans all over. October 21st was the day that Marty was scheduled to spontaneously appear from the past. There were posts all over facebook, news headlines and even the top 10 predictions from the iconic 80's movie, and what ones came true or seem to be. (I.e. the Cubs in the World Series) However, Marty was nowhere to be found on this iconic day in history. At times, it almost seemed surreal, with all this excitement and hype going around. (Well, that might be an exaggeration, but that's the piont. )
There will be an appearing made that infinitely supersedes any real life cameo that can be made by anyone on earth. That's because the person I'm referring to is the Almighty Son of God. The One and Only Savior of all mankind who rightly deserves a much much greater excitement in anticipation from his children! The first appearing of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, was also so accurately prophesied, which should give Christians even greater confirmation that His prophecies are true. Those who do not have a relationship with Christ will one day know the seriousness and true faithfulness of God. As I perused through my back to the future filled news feed on facebook, I couldn't help but wonder why Christians don't seem this excited for the imminent return of our Lord and Savior.
1 Thessalonians 4: 16-18
"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words."
