This is what God gave me today in His word:
Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only. (Matthew 24:35-36)
There has been, and there still is, a large amount of speculation as to when Jesus will return. In fact, there’s been a wealth; a down right overabundance of speculation on the subject. Some of the “theories” (though they aren’t true theories, but hypothesis’) don’t make much sense, but most are mathematical, and actually do make a certain amount of sense. The problem with these speculations, though, is that they are completely unBiblical. The above tells that no one, not even the mathematicians, knows the day or hour when Christ will return, and the World as we know it will end.
The simple reality of it, is that it doesn’t matter. None of it. When will Jesus return? I don’t know (and, in spite of innumerable claims, neither does anyone else). What I do know though, is that we should live every day of our lives, as though that was the day Jesus will be coming back. Which is something that we do, by living every moment, of every day, in light of the Gospel; remembering everything that He went through for us, and the freedom that we now have because of Him.
To put it simply: our focus shouldn’t be on when Jesus will return, it should be on Jesus.
You are Loved!
