Why I don't think anyone can be sure that Jesus is returning soon
I know this is a controversial statement but please hear me. Firstly, I am a firm believer in the second coming of Jesus. Secondly, I believe that we should always live with an urgency of a soon return of Jesus. My stance is the same as that of John Walvoord who said:
“Stay alert as if the Lord will come tomorrow, but prepare as if he will not come in your lifetime”
Furthermore, my sincere opinion is that the points listed below applies to any eschatological view. In fact, I think they stand apart from any particular view point. My attempt is not to promulgate another “this is the way” eschatological view point regarding the end times. But rather to propose another view that may be equally valid from a Scriptural perspective. Here are my reasons for this position.
