I suppose you’ve all heard the news, Jesus is supposed to be coming back today! There are some problems with that. I’ll list just a couple. First of all, Jesus said that no one knows exactly when he will come back. Secondly God said false prophets will be identified when their predictions don’t come true. The man behind this latest proclamation said the same thing back in 1994. So, given that the majority of Christians know these things and aren’t expecting to be raptured today, I suppose He could still show up. If so, it won’t be a moment too soon. I look forward eagerly to that day.
Don’t pack your bags just yet. If He comes you won’t need them where we’re going anyway. In truth we should be living every day like He’s coming any minute. As Christians we have the hope of His return, but there are people all around us who do not. Make good use of the fact that everyone’s talking about this right now to share the Good News that no one needs to fear the end of the world, so long as he has a relationship with the creator of this world.
