I like this question because I would like Jesus to come down – now! That would be the ‘Second Coming’ that Jesus talked about a lot. The end of ’The Age’ He called it, and that would bring in the new world that God has planned, and the end of evil in all its forms. Hooray!
The Jews had to wait 500 years for the prophecy of Isaiah to be fulfilled. And about the same time the for prophecy about the birth of Jesus by Micah that Bethlehem would be His birthplace. God counts a day as a thousand years and a thousand years as but a day.
God is very patient and just maybe Jesus meant it when He was talking to His disciples who had asked Him about His return, ‘The Second Coming,’ and the end of the age. Jesus said: ‘Because of the increase of wickedness, the love of most will grow cold, but he who stands firm to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.’ (Matthew chapter 24 verses 12 to 14).
That is pretty specific, and whatever Jesus says will come, will come. No doubt about it. There is much more in Matthew chapter 24 that is quite scary as to coming troubles. Read it and be wise and prepared. This ‘Answerer’ of questions thinks some parts have begun to show up in the last few years. There could soon be wars over clean water – I kid you not.
Earthquakes, troubles, climate change, plus troubles of all sorts with a population of 7,000,000,000 today, and it could be 10,000,000,000 within 40 or more years. So I say to you, read Matthew chapter 24 and try to know the worst signs like the moon not giving its light and the gospel being preached to the whole world. Many nations refuse to allow Christians telling about Jesus, they actually kill some of them and many who convert to Christianity are killed.
Knowledge makes you wise and prepared, so be wise and not foolish.
