If you are a Believer of God's word, this is all that is needed! YES, that He is coming again....just like He said He would! And, whether you believe it, or not, doesn't make it any less true. Fact!! All of His predictions concerning His first coming came true, why shouldn't you believe in His second coming? Matthew 24:35: "Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away . . ."

So friends, today I ask you in the most humblest, sincere way I can come to you: "Should Jesus come today, tonight, is it well with your soul"? It's your responsibility to know your fate!!

Honestly - I hate to always seem to be critical, especially to the humble... but, what you present above is not at all condoning Godly/altruistic behavior. The message is "you'd better find a way to save your own skin before Jesus comes back" which has zero to do with true spiritually enlightened living.

Love is it's own reward and comes from the eyes being opened to understand the richness and wonderfulness of conscious unity with Father God.

I can't describe how far this OP's concept is from anything I understand as the "gospel".

Yet - I know you view the post as a fact, not a threat but if you look at it objectively that's exactly what it really is, a threat of bad consequences for non-compliance - the lowest form of external motivation.

As far as Jesus literally coming back (as opposed to my belief of His return IN a cloud of witnesses) I really wish He would - it would make my job SO much easier.

Respectfully,

Then don't..... move on !!

The heart sings because it is overflowing with Christ (what Betsey is doing). Where the heart is not singing there is no melody, there is only the dreadful medley of human self-praise. - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
