10. Second Week in Advent - Tuesday
All in the graves will hear His voice and come forth
          The hour is coming in which all who are in the graves will hear His voice and come forth; those who have done good, to the resurrection of life, and those who have done evil, to the resurrection of damnation.   John 5:28-29
          Thus says the Lord Jesus. He speaks of the hour of His second coming. Then all the dead, without exception, shall hear His voice calling them, and shall come forth from the grave, and from the dust, and from all mixture and fusion with the elements of the earth. True, death has an awful power, and no man, nor any other creature, can awake us from it. But the voice of Jesus is almighty, and even the dead must hear it. There is a difference among the dead. First, there are those who have done good on earth, poor sinners, who believed in their Saviour, and showed that their faith was true by resisting sin and serving their Lord. These shall rise to eternal life and blessedness. Then there are those who have done evil on earth, who rejected the Saviour, and lived according to their own thoughts and desires. These shall come forth to eternal damnation.- Christians, how powerfully does this call and admonish us that today, while we live, we turn in faith to our Saviour and to His grace offered us freely and without price, and turn away from sin, and serve Him.
          PRAYER: - Jesus, my beloved Lord, I believe; help my unbelief. Grant that I may live and die firmly believing in You, my Saviour, and that I may not fall into the snares and pitfalls of unbelief and sin. O Love of my love, draw me to You that I may follow You! Grant me a blessed end and a joyful resurrection to eternal life. Keep me from the wrath of the Judgment to come, and from eternal damnation, O Lord Jesus! Amen.
