Where is He?
and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For
ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation.”
(2Pe 3:4 NASB)
maybe the better question is Why do we have to wait?
An Australian church group made a series of clips about Christian living, being ready, one clip is titled “Are you ready?” They ask some good questions.
That is a good question. Am I ready? Am I serving Christ? What do I need to do to be ready?
“Then the kingdom of heaven will be comparable to ten virgins, who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. “Five of them were foolish, and five were prudent. “For when the foolish took their lamps, they took no oil with them, but the prudent took oil in flasks along with their lamps. “Now while the bridegroom was delaying, they all got drowsy and began to sleep. “But at midnight there was a shout, ‘Behold, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him.’ “Then all those virgins rose and trimmed their lamps. “The foolish said to the prudent, ‘Give us some of your oil, for our lamps are going out.’ “But the prudent answered, ‘No, there will not be enough for us and you too; go instead to the dealers and buy some for yourselves.’ “And while they were going away to make the purchase, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast; and the door was shut. “Later the other virgins also came, saying, ‘Lord, lord, open up for us.’ “But he answered, ‘Truly I say to you, I do not know you.’
(Mat 25:1-12 NASB)
These are the important questions, the only really relevant questions to ask ourselves and others. We need to be prepared, ready to meet Jesus in the second coming. Do not leave room for doubt. It is your choice.
Jesus came the first time, changed history as no other man ever has or ever will. Jesus influences and stirs up people today just as he did in Jerusalem 2000 years ago, whether you proclaim Him as your savior or not.
