I See Him in the Clouds!

Being intentionally neglectful of the ridiculous date-setters of every generation, is there a cause (biblical evidence) to live every second of our lives (as believers in Christ) as though Jesus could return at any moment?

I’m taught repeatedly that the Apostles believed this. But did they?

Peter, encouraging those who had received a faith like his, warned of scoffers who would write Jesus’ return off as foolishness. They would mock, “You keep saying He’s coming again… it’s been a long time, where is He (2 Peter 3)?” But…

    I completely agree with you that we should both live for Christ as if He may come in the next moment AND as if He will never come in our own lifetimes! We are told in Scripture that no man knows the day or the hour of His Coming.

    Blessings to you and TC
