How much longer before Jesus Christ comes back?


Greetings dear readers, I feel privileged to be writing to you this glorious morning!

I know I haven’t been keeping up with my blog as much as I should have but I’ll keep trying my best moving forward!

This morning I feel like many Christians around the world are starting to get tired of waiting. And by that I mean that so many Christians are just not even looking to the skies anymore. Everyone is starting to forget the promise of our Lord that He would return soon to take us up! And I can understand the reason for this as well.

“Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom:

11 And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven.

12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.

(Luke 21:10-12)

This chapter and verse is where Jesus gives us a short glimpse of what the state of the world will be like when the time will be close for His return. But the sad truth is that we have seen these signs in small amounts here and there so much that we Christians are starting to lose faith in the Word of God. Even if you don’t want to admit to it, somewhere deep inside your heart you may have felt like there’s no point in waiting for His return, am I right? I have too. Sometimes I feel sad.

After all, nations have risen against nations in the past, and “kingdom against kingdom”. We have gone through two brutal world wars. Many holocausts have occurred in the past. Christians around the world have been persecuted and been delivered “up to the synagogues and into prisons”, just like the Lord said they would. We have had bouts of earthquakes before, and we continue to do so. And when some Christians see all these things and see that Jesus has yet not returned, their fire starts to dim down and they start to go about their lives expecting to only die one day and then enter heaven, no longer expecting Jesus to come back.

I understand if you are reading this and you too are a person who wants to have hope for His return but finds no reason to have that hope. I am here to tell you two things this morning:

Well first of all, Jesus Christ did say that:

 “So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know ye that the kingdom of God is nigh at hand.” (Luke 21:31)

We must also remember that when we’re trying to compare the time that passes by on earth to that of the divine realm of God, our lives and the time that goes by on this planet is immensely shorter.

“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.

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. (2 Peter 3:8-9)

What seems like a thousand years to us is merely only a single day in the eyes of God!!! So actually, to God, it has only barely been two days since Jesus left us!

Now to the main point, anyone who has been paying close attention to the news around the world, the weather and drastic climate changes, knows that the past two years have been quite bizarre.

We’ve been having more earthquakes than ever before, hundreds happening in single days, we’ve had the most bizarre weather and most records of highest and lowest temperatures or snowfall or drought have been broken the past couple of years.

I will go more into detail about these events in the coming articles, but for now, keep this in mind: the Lord is coming, and His coming is imminent! And this will not be like the times before. I am very positive that He will come soon, although none of us can know exactly when, but He will be here anytime and we have to prepare ourselves!

Prepare your family, prepare your friends. Pastors, if any of you are reading this, no matter where you are, please oh please make sure your churches are ready to be taken up in the rapture that is soon to come! NO ONE knows when it will happen, and when it does, it will be quick like the blink of an eye, and there will be no room for the begging of mercy at that point.

So prepare  yourselves and everyone you know as early as possible!!!!

I will write to you again soon! Till then, take care, keep your faith, and may the Almighty Father in Heaven bless you and keep you!!!!

Christ’s Return- My Aching Wait


Hello there again dear readers! I’m so sorry I haven’t been able to post articles for a few days this week… I may have to change the “one post per two days” practice of mine to ” a post per 3-4 days” as now I’m returning to my studies and I’m becoming a lot more busy than before. But I’ll never stop posting.. of course not! Oh, and I request all readers to take part in this poll:

I was planning on starting a series of related subjects this time, but I’ve decided to postpone that to the next time. Right now I’d like to share a poem I wrote a while ago. I wrote it with feelings deep from my heart so I thought I’d share it with my dear readers.

It’s a poem I wrote one day when I couldn’t stand the wait for Christ’s return. I was sitting outside, gazing at the sky, clouds floating by lazily…

I started thinking of how Jesus  Christ, the one I love most in this world, will someday come in one of those clouds to take us back home.. then I thought, “why does He take so

long?” My heart got filled with both the excitement of being taken to heaven someday in the rapture, and the feeling of loneliness as I wait and wait and wait.. and out of that chaos of feelings, this poem came to existence: Enjoy! 🙂

Your Return

When, my Lord, shall You return,
When , to calm my heart in burn?

For, ages, I have searched the skies,
And tears, I shed from aching eyes.

At every thunder roaring high, 
I hope to see the face of Thine.

At every lightning gleaming by,
I hope to meet You in the skies!

For, like a child away from home, 
And like a leaf amidst the storm,

I seek the path I lost, the way
That leads me home when I'm astray.
