“I charge thee, therefore, before GOD, and the Lord Jesus Christ, Who shall judge the living {quick} and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom:” 2 Timothy 4:1 ~KJV

Romans 6 says, “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin. Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, Knowing that Christ, being raised from the dead, dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over Him.” (Romans 6: 6-9)

It’s trues that we have put to death our old selves when we accepted Jesus into our hearts. But we still struggle with “our old man!” It’s exactly like Paul writes in Romans 7:24–you’re carrying around your “old man”—until Jesus’ return!

“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the children of GOD; therefore, the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not. Beloved, now are we the children {sons} of GOD, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.” (1 John 3:1, 2)

The Apostle Paul, in 2 Timothy 4:1, was reminding Timothy of this imminent event. Even the Apostle Paul thought that the event might happen in his lifetime. That’s why it’s called the Next Great Event (an imminent event)! We are called to watch and pray because no one knows exactly when! “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but My Father only.” (Matthew 24:36)

May be an image of cloud and text that says "THE NEXT GREAT EVENT: "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 so shall we ever be with the Lord." Thessalonians 4:17 Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lard Jesus."

“And to wait for His Son from heaven, Whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus, Who delivered us from the wrath to come.”(1 Thessalonians 1:10)
