Many feel that we are in the beginning of the ends of day. There are others who are growing weary of waiting and feel that since it has been so long in coming, that Christ is just not coming back! Christ told us this would happen. He also knew, and made known to us, that the time of His coming would be at a time we did not expect, known only to God. “45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his master made ruler over his household, to give them food in due season? 46 Blessed is that servant whom his master, when he comes, will find so doing. 47 Assuredly, I say to you that he will make him ruler over all his goods. 48 But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’ 49 and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards, 50 the master of that servant will come on a day when he is not looking for him and at an hour that he is not aware of, 51 and will cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.” Matthew 24: 45 – 51 (NKJV) “6 Therefore, when they had come together, they asked Him, saying, ‘Lord, will you at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?’ 7 And He said to them, ‘It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority.’ ” Acts 1: 6 – 7 (NKLJV) Christ Himself has told us to be ready,regardless of how long the wait may be. We are the servants and He is our Master. We should live each and everyday as if He was returning at any moment. I do not know when that will be,and neither does anyone else. Yes, the prophets have given us hints and happenings to look and watch for. Despite all that, we still must remember that God works on His time not ours. The prophecies seem to read as things happening over a period of time, some in years. What is the year of man, as compared to a year in God’s sense of time? I do not have the answer to that, and I do not believe anyone has a full comprehension of it either. There may be hints and indications of that sense of time, but nothing, to my knowledge, that states it as a positive fact, given by God. The point is, there is nothing to tell us, so we must work and testify to the world, as if Christ was returning in the next few seconds. That is what the master expects of His servants. Those who do not persevere to the end, will be found wanting, and will be surprised by His return, whenever it happens. They will receive the reward the Master determines they deserve. Pray for their perseverance, lest they receive the reward of the hypocrites. Those who persevere to the end, shall also receive the reward of our Master. He has appointed us to serve as overseers of His word to the world. He has apponited us to keep, and add to, His flock, till His return. We are to feed them with His word and truth and love. We are to care for them, till He returns and brings His Kingdom with Him and His angels. It will be a wonderful and glorious day when we see Him coming on the clouds of Heaven. We wait with anticipation for His calling to us, to bring us unto Him with the sound of trumpets and song. HE WILL RETURN WHEN GOD WILLS IT – WE MUST REMAIN FAITHFUL AND TRUE UNTIL THEN! WILL YOU BE READY?
