When I heard the good news back in 1986 I was enthusiastic. The Second Coming of Jesus, the Son of God, was real and literal on my mind. In my heart was excitement! There were predictions preached by SDA pastors to be sometime in 1996, 1998, 2000, 2001, etc. I was readying myself. I read a lot of later editions of EG White books and faithfully attended every evangelistic meetings. I joined in distributing tracks and pamphlets. I did everything I can because I am so happy for the message of Christ’s return and joyful to share it.
Those years past by and Jesus, the Messiah, had not come yet. A whole new generation went by but still the hope of Christ returns is ever burning alive in my heart.
I became a preacher and preached the Advent message till now.
I believed Christ will return with power and glory inevitably. The times are perilous. The world is agitated. The man of sin is revealed. No one knows the day nor the hour but His “Father only,” said Christ (Matt 24:36). Jesus lovingly submitted to His Father the revelation of that Great Day! Surely, our time of judgment is ripe for such an event. Only mercy is holding it back.
I yearn for the Lord to return because there is no hope here on this world for me. I want my life to be used to glorify God the Father and His only Begotten Son. I desire to worship God with the saved and un-fallen beings.
I told my wife if times persist we might be wiped out. Financially and emotionally we will be strained. The world is worshipping the false Trinity gods. Lucifer, the usurper of Christ’s position, is raging.
The whole world wondered after the beast and its image. Corrupt and greedy men are ruling over us. One day they will declare those who keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus to be enemy’s of the world. Thus, the faithful few will be annihilated.
My life is useless without a purpose. And I want you all to know my purpose is to share the message of Hope, Faith, and Love.
Jesus, the Son of the Living God, will keep His Word. He will come. Just patiently wait and murmur not.
