All my life I’ve been expecting the return of Christ and I still am today. No matter the economic condition, the underline message is always the same. In bible days they patiently waited for the birth of Jesus. For example in Luke 2:25 Now there was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout. He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him. 26 It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah. 27 Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts.
I studied where the disciples seemed convinced that Jesus would return in their day. At one point Jesus said that some here who will not die till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom. Some did. When you see the Son, you behold the Father. When you see the Father you see the Son. When you hear and see, it is by the testimony of The Holy Spirit.(Matt16:28)……http://biblehub.com/niv/matthew/16.htm…..
Those of us who are not expecting the return of Christ have inadvertently forgotten Him.
As the bible says, He is preparing a place so that where He is we will be also. A popular thought among people I know. Says that we now live in hell and one day it will be heaven. If only it was that simple. This is a personal view and and even simpler one.
Everything to happen has already taken place. I am that confident in the Word God. That in Christ we have eternal life. We know in our spirit that His return is near and we are hopeful. Making ourselves ready as a bride prepares to be one with her husband.
The original man Adam was totally unconscious. As God performed on his body and created his bride. Like wise we are unconscious to what it is that God has prepared for us. Before we were born l, He knew us? New International Version
However, as it is written: “What no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived” — the things God has prepared for those who love him–
On that glorious day when we awake unto God. Having no memory of life on earth. I am confident in my faith. That I am an eternal soul in the kingdom of God.
