Marana Tha

June 2016 (16)

1 Corinthians 16:19-24

1Co 16:19 The churches of Asia say hello. Aquila and Prisca, along with the church that meets in their house, send you affectionate greetings in the Lord.
1Co 16:20 All the brothers say hello. Greet one another with a holy kiss.
1Co 16:21 I, Paul, sign this salutation with my own hand.
1Co 16:22 If anyone does not love for the Lord, let him be accursed. Marana Tha!
1Co 16:23 The grace of the Lord Jesus is with you.
1Co 16:24 My love is with all of you in Christ Jesus.

Marana Tha

It is a very old greeting. It is in Aramaic, and it expresses the expectation that the Lord will return to this planet, and set right its wrongs, redeeming the slaves, and restoring the kingdom. We have seen that there is much that is still wrong with this world as we reviewed this letter. There is still much wrong with the church as well. But the good news is that the Lord is coming. But we can deal with all the disappointments in the world and in the church if we keep looking up!

LORD, come!
