The prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is Jeremiah 23:5-8.

Our second coming quote for today is from Harry Ironside. He said, “We cannot enter upon the full enjoyment of the heavenly side of that kingdom in these bodies and under present conditions. We must be transformed. Our bodies of humiliation must be made like unto the body of His glory. And when will it take place? ‘In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump.’ Just as quickly as the flash of light appears in the eye, this change will take place when our Lord returns.”
