Thanks to Harold Camping, today is pretty much the one day I don’t expect Christ to return. What a shame! Never mind eh. Begin again tomorrow. Sunday would be a better day for it anyway – the Lord’s Day does mean “Day of the Lord” after all.
Of course, through the gospel, Christ’s return is not Doomsday, but the Happy Last Day. If we know Jesus then Judgement Day has passed. It fell on Christ crucified and we look with eager longing for the appearing of our Friend and Saviour to put all things right.
Question 52. What comfort is it to you that Christ “shall come to judge the living and the dead?”
Answer. That in all my sorrows and persecutions, I, with uplifted head, look for the very One, who offered Himself for me to the judgment of God, and removed all curse from me, to come as Judge from heaven, who shall cast all His and my enemies into everlasting condemnation, but shall take me with all His chosen ones to Himself into heavenly joy and glory.
The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” (Rev 22:17)
