The early followers of Jesus, who faced trials, persecution, and uncertainty about their future, took heart encouraging one another with an Aramaic greeting, “Maranatha!” It means “the Lord is coming!” or “come, Lord Jesus” as in Revelation 22:20 “Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!” (ESV).
At CrossHope Chapel Bible Church we share in the encouragement of knowing the Lord is coming, especially as current events remind us that our “redemption is drawing near“ (Luke 21:28). If you too see the sign of these times pointing toward our Lord’s return, please consider coming out and visiting us this Sunday morning.
