I don’t know the day and the hour of Christ’s return. But I do know the Bible urges us to look for specific signs:
- The preaching of the gospel to all nations (Matthew 24:14; Mark 13:10)
- Days of distress in which saints will suffer and the creation will tremble (Mark 13:7-8, 19-20)
- The coming of the Antichrist, an enemy of God who will deceive many (2 Thessalonians 2:1-10)
- Salvation of many Jews (Romans 11:12, 25-26)
If you knew Jesus was returning tomorrow, how would you feel today? Anxious, afraid, unprepared? If so, you can take care of your fears by placing your trust in Christ. If your answer includes words like happy, relieved, and excited, hold tightly to your joy. Heaven is God’s answer to any suffering you may face.
If you knew Jesus was coming tomorrow, what would you do today? Live in such a way that you would not have to change your plans.
