Good Morning
Jesus had a number of parables and teaching about the “end times” or the time of His return to earth. He would usually end with a cautionary statement to watch, to be aware of the times. Unfortunately, I think we have grown dull in this regard. “After all,” it’s so easy for us to think, “He hasn’t come in two thousand years, why should he come now?” We are caught up in all of our daily activities, and just the chores of day to day living. We don’t pay much attention to the “end times”. Certainly, we do not fall into the trap of setting dates on His return. Scripture clearly tells us not to, and we’ve already been through that with Mr. Camping and dozens of others, all proving to be false prophets. Nonetheless, Jesus’ admonition to watch is always necessary. Things are happening at a more rapid pace today than ever before in history. Attacks on the orthodox Christian faith have become stronger both from the secular world and within the church itself. The “signs of the times” recorded in Scripture are becoming more abundant. We are not to fear, but we are to be aware, and to be more urgent in prayer for those we care about, and for the Lord to deal with the brokenness of this world. We are people of great hope, and all of our hope is centered in Jesus Christ.
