SCRIPTURE TEXT: “Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you are blessed by My Father, inherit the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world” -Matthew 25 : 34
Blest be the King whose coming is in the name of God For Him let doors be opened, no hearts against Him barred! Not robed in royal splendor, in power and pomp, comes He; But clad as are all poorest, such his humility!
Blest be the King whose coming is in the name of God By those who truly listen His voice is truly heard; Pity the proud and haughty, who have not learned to heed The Christ who is the Promise, who has atonement made.

The second coming of Jesus shall be a great moment for them who have washed their clothes in Christ. It will be a time of weeping and gnashing of teeth for those who have blatantly ignored warnings from messengers of God to repent. God’s invitation is to everyone, He says we should come to Him burdened and He shall give us rest.
Prayer point: Pray and bless the name of our God for He is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.
