I realize, it’s bold to say. But, it’ll take place no matter what. It’ll come to pass because it isn’t up to us. It’s God’s work.
It’s foolish to wonder when? It’s wise to wonder why?
God’s work of when remains a mystery.
However God’s work of why isn’t a mystery.
The Good News about God’s only Son, Jesus, is the why.
Jesus made a list on the subject of when. The end game file can be reviewed in Matthew 24: 1-14:
1) Temple buildings will be demolished.
2) Many will claim to be the Messiah and lead many astray.
3) Wars will breakout near and far.
4) There will be famines and earthquakes in many parts of the world.
5) Followers of Christ will be arrested, persecuted and killed because of their allegiance.
6) False prophets will lead many astray.
7) Sin will be uncontrolled and the love of many will grow cold.
8) The Good News will be preached throughout the whole world and then the end will come.
Several word pictures follow this list which describe scenes taking place prior to Jesus’ return: Matthew 24:15—51.
It can be argued that most of the when Jesus listed has already happened. When Jesus is revealed the why will be settled. This really isn’t a game at all.
