Signs of the Times

In the past few years there has seemed to be an increase in natural disasters.  Volcanos, tsunamis, earthquakes, hurricanes, floods and all sorts of tragic events have occurred. The other night, here in eastern Iowa there was a blazing comet that streaked across the sky.   Some people wonder if indeed these are signs of the end, that Jesus is returning soon.

It is possible.

I have long believed that Jesus could return at any moment.  I also accept that we do not know the day or hour.  Historically, many generations have believed that they were living in the last days. Obviously it hasn’t happened yet.  So what are we to do?

We should live our lives as if Jesus could return at any moment.  We should also accept that  it could be another thousand years.  What does that mean?  It means that if Jesus comes today, we should be ready.  We should also plan for the future, just in case.
