My Last Post?

Yes, it is my last post if Harold Camping is right. You see Mr. Camping has Jesus returning sometime today. The last I heard it was 6:00 pm.  Nor sure what time zone. So I better hurry and writ this.

Throughout the history of Christianity people have been predicting Christ’s return. So far they are batting .000 percent. I guess that someone will eventually make a correct prediction only because if you predict something long enough it will eventually happen.

Orthodox Christians believe in Christ’s eventual return. What they do not believe in is that we will know the time and date. We are only told we will know the season. Jesus tells His disciples that only the Father knows the time. What hubris makes men think they know more than Jesus?

Yes, I look forward to Christ’s return. I just don’t go around making predictions as the when. As a Christian I need to live my life as if Jesus will return right now and as if He will not return during my lifetime. This the only way for Christians to live. We need to spend our time telling the Good News to all, doing the work set out for us by Jesus.

Predicting dates only make it harder for un-believers to believe and for new believers to keep the faith.

Have a blessed day,

David

About dwwork

The name of this blog is taken from 1 Peter 3:13 - “always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience. This verse became special to me over ten years ago when I was asked to teach an adult Sunday school class on Christian apologetics. This interest grew over the years to the point that I took some graduate level classes in apologetics. I think the best way to be prepared to give and answer to everyone who asks is to know scripture. It is my hope that through these short devotionals the reader will become more familiar with each verse. I have tried when possible to make them personal hoping in some small way to show that God’s word written over two thousand years ago is still relevant today. In the writing of these short devotionals I have been able to better understand how God’s word impacts my life. It is my hope that you too will come closer to our Lord Jesus and develop a closer relationship with Him. Finally, if the reader finds anything in conflict with scripture please let me know. God’s word is the final authority always overrules anything I might write. David
