The Crowning Day Is Coming
Our burden in “The Crowning Day is Coming” is to offer these hymns on the Lord’s second coming with the prayer and hope that these hymns would cause us all to realize that the Lord’s coming is nearer than ever before. Therefore, we should consecrate ourselves to Him and be ready for His coming.
He is coming as a thief (Matthew 24:43-44), so we must grow in life and become “precious material” for Him to take us. He is also coming as our bridegroom (John 3:29; Revelation 19:7) and so we must love Him with all our heart (Mark 12:30) and be built up together and knit together in love as His corporate bride, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing (Eph. 5:27) by being sanctified through the washing of the water in the Word.
Surely the day indeed approaches, Jesus soon is coming! These hymns were recorded in Jerusalem, the city to which the Lord will return. By watching and praying we are expecting and hastening the coming day. May we pay the price to buy the oil of the Spirit today, lest we be found short of oil when the cry goes out, Behold your Bridegroom! (Matt. 25:6.).
“Watch therefore, for you do not know on what day your Lord comes.” “For this reason you also be ready, because at an hour when you do not expect it, the Son of Man is coming.”
Matthew 24:42, 44
It is quite different than other C D's. I can see it of being of great value when used in localities that have small numbers as a sing along. What a great choice of hymns as the Lord's return is so eminent. If it could be coordinated with Hymnal.net as a singing version for times of need in zoom meetings, that would be very valuable. It is quite difficult to sing with just the accompaniment of hymnal.net. but when there is a voice rendition it is so helpful. The only reason I gave it a 4 if because many times the words are not clear. But it would work well with hymnal.net if words could be displayed as the singing was played.
