Why do you ask if he's a white man

Does He have to come at 3PM? Can He come at 8 AM? The earlier the better! LOL

I am ready for the Lord. Fortunately, He would come at this time of my life and not, say, more than 5 years ago when I was lost and messed up. Now He would have to come in all his Glory like it is explained in Revelations, otherwise he would be another false prophet.

I would not try to convert anyone. It may be too late for them anyway. They must accept Jesus from the heart not just from the fear that "oops, He really does exist let me repent now"! I can't judge them, but we are all given free will and it is up to God to decide if they truley are repentful.

I can only speak for myself and say Jesus come quickly! I'm ready for eternal life! Hopefully, I'll be worthy to partake in His Banquet. Amen.

Jesus Christ is Risen, He is Risen Indeed !

I think that you have either phrased the question poorly, in that one cannot know that divine things are going to happen and still be an atheist. OR, you do not really understand what being an atheist means.

For the record, I am not denying god, or refusing to believe in him, or ignoring him. I honestly, truly, from the top of my head to the bottom of my feet, do not believe that he exists in any form whatsoever.
For understanding, can you help me clarify from an atheist standpoint here. If Christ were coming and everyone knew it was Christ, wouldn't it still be possible for you to simply deny that Christ was in fact Christ and that he was just some guy or something like that? If so, would you still consider yourself an atheist, or would you be something else at that point?

a friend from my small group called me the otherday out of the blue and simply said to me, "When is Christ coming back because I am ready and tired of waiting? This world is to wicked for me anymore." I had to think on it for a while because it is such a powerful statement, and I agree. I would drop to the ground and rejoice my Lord and savior.

Come, Lord Jesus, Come!!!!

I would again try to take as many with me as possible and I'd probably be a lot more urgent in telling everyone.

Sometimes I feel our world is about to implode on itself with so much wrong going on and seemingly little hope for it getting better.

So...I hope I'm singing or praying or thinking good thoughts when He comes!

Although I am ready to meet Jesus, my family isn't. I'm still praying for their salvation. I think that's why the Lord tarries. He wants everyone to come to repentance and be saved. That's why I keep witnessing and just living my life so they can see Jesus. People want to know why we keep telling them about Jesus. It's because we love them and don't want them to go to an eternal hell. It's like if I saw someone in a burning building and I didn't try to save that person, but just walked away. I was on my way to hell, and someone told me about Jesus and prayed for me. I promised the Lord He can send me and I will do the same. Whoever wins souls is wise!
