The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Isaiah 43:5-7.

Our second coming quote for today is from Adrian Rogers. He said, “The second coming of Jesus Christ is necessary to fulfill the purpose of God. The incarnation without the coronation would be like height without depth and east without west. And our salvation without our glorification is no salvation at all. His resurrection is the pledge of our resurrection.”
