Then they will see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory. Mark 13:26
Christians face times of crisis and uncertainty with the hope that Jesus is returning someday soon. Some believe they’ll be taken out before the Great Tribulation that Jesus talks about in Matthew 13. Others are not so certain.
I believe the Bible supports our early exit, but for the sake of not missing some big truths in this chapter, we should all at least agree to take him at his word that he is coming back.
If we choose to live in the here and now, we’ll miss out on this hope. There’s something about getting ready for something big that builds anticipation and excitement. But you’ll have to rein yourself in sometimes because you’ll grow impatient. I do.
I think the Lord would rather us be on the tip of our toes watching and waiting than living life unexpectantly. You don’t want to be caught flat footed as they say.
Take heed, keep on the alert; for you do not know when the appointed time will come. Mark 13:33
