Continued Next Week

I like to watch NCIS, it’s been one of my fav’s for a couple of years now.
So last night was a new episode and it had my gaze fixated on the TV for the whole hour.
Then it had a twist that I wasn’t expecting; I looked at the clock and it was 2 minutes before the hour.
I told Linda, “This one is continued next week!”
And sure enough, it is!
I realize that next Tuesday they’ll show some scenes from last nights program and continue from there.
Around 8pm the mystery should end and life will go on.
Contrast programs like this with the Bible for a moment.
The Bible is finished, complete, with nothing to be added.
But what event is each born-again believer waiting on?
Jesus said, “I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.” John 14:2-3
Paul said, “For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thess 4:16-17
Finally in Rev 22:20, He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.” Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
We know the ending and yet there is a continuation that we’re all waiting for right in the middle – the return of Jesus!
I know the NCIS end will be revealed next week but I do not know when the Jesus-middle will be revealed.
But I can hardly wait!
