Where is Jesus? It has been 2,000 years since He said “I will come back for you”. What is taking so long? These would be normal questions to ask. Sometimes I ask questions like these myself when I look at the world today with all the problems we have such as Economic crisis, War, and Disease. I meet refugees and hear their stories all the time, so I know how much suffering there is in the world.
In the bible it says that the Lord is patient and does not want any to perish. He wants to give people a chance to come to know Jesus first. The bible also says that for the Lord one day is as a thousand years and a thousand years like one day. In other words for Jesus there are no boundaries of time. If we stop to think about that there is a comforting thought which is- Jesus is in the future and present at the same time. He already knows when He will return and what will happen between now and then. When it seems like everything is chaotic around us we can take comfort in the fact that Jesus knows not only what we are going through now, but also how it will end up.
He did give us some things to look for as signs of His coming. I will write about more of those the next few writings. He will keep His word and come back for us. He will also return to earth to reign as King of all. He will return and put an end to all the chaos we see around us. In the meantime we have work to do to spread His message and can trust in His plan. We need not worry or get scared by what we see happening in the world. He has a plan and He already knows how it will work out.
