THIS LIFE IS NOT ABOUT THIS LIFE
It is just the preparation ground for the next life!
Every true christian believes with absolute certainty that Jesus Christ will return and the invitation to His Kingdom will be withdrawn. We do not know when!
Jesus Christ made a beautiful promise to his followers almost 2,000 years ago: "Don't let your hearts by troubled. Trust in God and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father's home. If it were not so would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am". (John 14 v 1-3)
The apostle Peter wrote over 1900 years ago.
In the last days scoffers will come mocking the truth and following their own desires. They will say: “What happened to the promise that Jesus is coming again? From before the times of our ancestors everything has remained the same since the world was first created.” Peter 3 v 3-4
The Lord isn't really being slow about his promise as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake. He does not want anyone to be destroyed, but wants everyone to repent. But the day of the Lord will come as unexpectedly as a thief. 2 Peter 3 v 9-10
The disciples of Jesus asked when he was going to come back. He made it very plain that he was not going to tell them but gave signs to look for.
“You will hear of wars and rumours of wars. Nation will go to war against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world. Matthew 24 v 6-7.
The Apostle Paul wrote to Timothy:
In the last days there will be very difficult times. People will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving, they will slander others and have no self control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. 2 Timothy 3 v 1-4
Daniel wrote 2,400 years ago referring to the time of the end: Many will rush here and there, and knowledge will increase. Daniel 12 v 4
The bible gives graphic details about the traumatic events to happen on earth at the time of the end when God's patience finally runs out and he acts in judgment. Much we see happening in the world today in the Middle East, Europe, Russia, and Asia begins to fulfill these prophecies.We must take this seriously
If Jesus Christ comes back today are you ready to meet Him?
Jesus also said "You also must be ready all the time, for the Son of Man will come when least expected".
If we belong to Jesus Christ we have no need to worry about whether he will return today, or not for another 2,000 years.
