Coming Soon

Why hasn’t Christ returned yet? When will He come again? Does His delay mean He might not ever come? To some, His delay does indicate He is not coming back. However, to the Christian, His return is certain even though it has not happened yet. Peter closes this book by addressing the scoffers who claim that Christ is not coming back and then explains why Christ’s return has been delayed. First, the scoffers say that things have gone on the same since the beginning of time and, therefore, will continue. Peter tells us that they have not taken into account how God judged the world with the flood, illustrating their point to be false. Peter follows by letting us know that to God a day is like a thousand years. To Him, it has only been about 2 days since Jesus left the earth. Peter closes by telling us the return of Jesus Christ has been delayed to provide more people with the opportunity to be saved. His delay is not the neglect of His promise, but the fulfillment of His promise. When His patience has ended, He will come. Are you ready? Who can you tell that the return of Christ has been delayed to provide him an opportunity for salvation?
