I keep reading of all this hoopla about this being the end times. What a witless conclusion!
To God, time is meaningless. God is not constrained by time because He is eternal. However, He does plan things in His own time and timing. This is predominantly explained in Ecclesiastes.
"The rapture," if you will...
evidence given most notably in the final book of the Bible: Revelations.
He RARELY works in our misguided, mortal time frame. I'm wary to say NEVER, although I reckon that is the case SOMETIMES.
Do you know how many times throughout history that man has tried to attest present day circumstances with scripture? Well albeit, neither do I, but I'd wager it's a substantial amount.
Now, I could be unequivocally wrong about this, but I kindly doubt it.
Besides all that nonsense, I highly doubt that God, in all His wisdom, would only allow us a few, measly centuries to succumb and to learn from His teaching. What about the people that haven't been born yet? Don't you think He'd allow them an option?
His love is so radiantly full and complete that He allows us a choice: Live for Him or not.
In the end we have to choose to trust His goodness, faithfulness and mercy. He has entrusted His message to our imperfect hands.
Indubitably, we need to continue to spread His message to the four corners of the globe.
"But do not overlook this one fact, beloved, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day." 2 Peter 3:8
