When is Jesus coming for His Church…?

Just when will Jesus Christ return for His church? If I was to look at the world for an answer they would tell us its just an old wives tale. It’s been said over so many years and still nothing has happened.

If I was to look at the church what would it’s answer be? Does it reflect an urgency for the hour? Is there a buzz amongst the people? Sometimes there appears to be no distinction between viewing the church and the world.

But if I look to God’s Word, it tells me a whole different story. It shouts that we are in the Last Days. Why, the Apostle’s Paul, Peter and John teach us so.

The Bible tells us…. 2 Peter 3: Beloved, I now write to you this second epistle (in both of which I stir up your pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us,[ the apostles of the Lord and Savior, knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.
The Day of the Lord
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. 11 Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, 12 looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God,

If I was to ask you if you think Christ’s return is soon, what would be your answer? Does your life, your everyday living reveal your expectancy of Christ’s return? I pray that it does…
