BATHOSAt any 'moment' in time Jesus could come and woooosh rapture the church! Well, so goes the belief that many Christians today believe in. I don't personally adhere to that view at all. But lately it has made me think though.
If one really believes that Jesus is coming back at any moment then wouldn't or shouldn't more Christians really be striving to be just like Jesus? If Jesus is coming at any 'moment' to rapture the church then shouldn't they be intensely studying their Bibles, praying, fasting, and telling others who really aren't following Jesus that they really should because hey Jesus is coming at any 'moment?'
Yet Seventh-day Adventist who though don't believe Jesus is going to rapture us (me being one of those granted) but believe that Jesus is "coming soon" at least sooner than we first believed, shouldn't we be striving to be more like Jesus? If Jesus is coming soon than shouldn't we be intensely studying our Bibles, praying, fasting, and telling others who really aren't following Jesus that they really should because hey Jesus is coming soon ?
So wether it's at any 'moment' or 'coming soon' Christians we should really, very soon, like this very moment, woooosh wake up, start reading our Bibles, praying, fasting, and telling others about Jesus. Along with all that we need to start living like Jesus.
Think about it Jesus knew that He wasn't going to die until He died on the cross! Therefore to a great extent He lived each 'moment' for His Father understanding that 'soon' He would die for us, so that we could live every 'moment' for Him understanding that 'soon' He will be coming for us!
So stop living an un-momentus life and live every 'moment' for Him because 'soon' He's coming for you...
