And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through. Be ye therefore ready also: for the Son of man cometh at an hour when ye think not.
Many people seem to enjoy speculating as to when Jesus will return, but we just don’t know. The truth is that the Son of Man will return when we are not expecting it. It is not our responsibility to try to figure out when He will arrive . So then, what is our responsibility? In light of His return, our responsibility is twofold: one, ready our hearts; two, spread the gospel. Whether He returns before we die or we die before He returns, we will meet Jesus soon. Don’t you want to meet Him with a pure heart? And whether God plans to send Jesus back tomorrow or in a thousand years, the seconds are precious, because there are lost souls on this earth right now who need Jesus. Let us not waste time watching the clock. Let us live every day like Jesus could show up at any moment. This blog post has been adapted from The KJV Prophecy Study Bible by Barbour Publishing.
