There is a broad opinion floating around that we are in ‘the Last Days’ and that ‘the end is coming very soon.’ Well, I suppose it may or may not be soon, but what possible difference it makes is beyond me if one truly belongs to Jesus. Belonging to Him does mean something for The Last Days, but it means incredibly more for living now. We do not live for future life but in eternal life. That is the principle that must be the guiding light.
If the ending point of earth life as we know it, is about spent, then we simply live on in the eternal life we have begun when we received and accepted the invitation and demands of Jesus and His kingdom. Or we live on in the consequence of not having chosen Christ… this too is eternal. Our hope is in Christ and not the timing and events of the Second Coming. Whenever He comes, it is His presence in the new age that we should desire and the process that took us there.
“Behold, I am coming quickly, and my reward is with me, to render to every man according to what he has done.” Jesus
