Days and weeks are passing by and while the world continues to grow more chaotic, nothing has “happened” – so what are we “waiting” on?
It’s a good question that every Christian thinks about. We see all the signs and wonders, fulfillment, and suggestions that the hour is late on God’s timeline, yet no major change has come.
Or has it? Does the world look much different now than when you are reading this compared to a year ago? Of course it does. How much more “time” is left before all is fulfilled? Only the Great I AM knows this, and that exact time is not for us to know.
But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. – Matthew 24:36
So what are we waiting on?
WE might not be waiting on anything. God might be waiting on US.
If we look at Matthew 24:36, Jesus (Yeshua) said that only the Father knows the day and hour. It could be that He is waiting on the moment that He knows all that are coming to know Him have done so and that His bride is ready for collection.
God gives us chance after chance to repent of our sins. When the moment comes, it will be because those extended chances are no more. Time is up, opportunities to draw close to God are over, and the world will be judged.
So maybe we are waiting on the last person to come to know God through Jesus Christ our Savior. When that day and hour comes, then there will be no more waiting. The moment will come fast and unexpected.
In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. – 1 Corinthians 15:52
While we are waiting for a moment that only God the Father knows, we should be preparing ourselves. We should be examining our lives and our intentions. Are you doing this with the little time that is left?
Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. – Matthew 24:44
Study, learn, research, and ask for discernment and truth. Time is ticking and the hour is late.
Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. – 2 Timothy 2:15
