“The Lord is coming soon”, this is the message we preach and we confirm through the Scriptures that one day our King and Lord will return for His holy church, and this time He will not do it as a meek lamb, but comes as the lion of the tribe of Judah, everybody will have to surrender before His majesty, everybody will have to keep reverence before the one who is sitting on the throne … Christ really comes soon.
The apostle Peter said:
8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
2 Peter 3:8-10
The first thing is that despite the fact that the world judges us because we say that Christ is coming soon and years and years have passed and still does not come, this should not be a reason for discouragement for us, since God is clear in His Word, and He has never really given us a date and His soon coming is still true, because, in these verses, Peter says: “With the Lord one day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years like a day.” That is, for God there is no time like for us, He is infinite, He has no beginning or end.
The certain thing is that the day of the Lord will come like thief in the night, a day that you and I do not know the date, so we must be waiting for that day of the Lord ready and trusting.
