When Is Jesus Coming Back? Im Tired Of Waiting:

The message has been drummed into my ear drums for as long as I can remember. If he is coming back, i think we better get it over with on time or we can just forget about it.

Though I may sound frustrated, I'm sure quite a lot of us must have felt like that at a time.  I just hope that somebody has not misinterpreted those script literally. I really hope.

This is the best reply i've seen so far posted for this topic.

You all that are still waiting, you will wiat till eternity.

Instead you all should focus in doing what is right and obeying the will of the almighty father you busy waiting for a free ride to paradise, bunch of lazy believeres, well its not all your faults, it's the church's, instaed of them grooming strong and hardworking beleievers having being convicted of their belief, they groom bunch of lazy church attendees, and the main purpose of doing this is to increase the earthly power just like the pharisees and saducees. And you will start hearing: the largest congregation in africa, the largest auditorium in the world, the church has lost focus, and thats why judgement also will start from those places i mentioned.

Jesus, if he's to appear again here before men, do you think he will receive a better treatment? NO. he'll be treated just as he was some 2000 thousands years ago or even worse. He promised a comforter for so many years and even still now the comforter is still walking across the surface of the earth but most men done recognize him. And it's until his message reaches the far end of the globe i.e till everyone come across it during their earthlife which it's a must, but its now left for the individual to now believe till the end of the world will come.

Just as the Jews are still expecting the messiah which has already walked the surface of the earth some 2000yrs back, so also are the Xtians waiting either for the comeback of Jesus Xrist or the promised Comfoter, cos the comforter has come and gone but his work lives on for eternity.

He that hath ears let him hear

Well, I can understand the feeling. In fact the disciples felt the same way in their day. In their struggles and persecution they longed for Jesus to return. Paul had to encourage a lot of christians who simply grew weary. He reminded them that its worth the wait.

Be of good cheer!

Uzzayan is right. No one knows when the 'son of man' will come. Not even the son of man himself! His Lord makes that decision, alone. You hear than, Christians.

@poster, try to occupy your mind with as much as you can while you wait. No one knows when the end will come but do not let the feelings overwhelm you much. We all get to that point every now and then. Just try to shift your focus to other things so you can breath and not be tempted to do evil.

Are you tired of waiting for the Lord?

Habakkuk 2: 3 says "but these things I plan wont happen right away. Slowly, steadily, surely, the time approaches when the vision will be fulfilled. If it seems slow, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.

If your tired of waiting, there is a short cut route. Just take a bus from Lagos to Ibadan following the expressway and please make sure to start the journey by 9pm and if you do get to ibadan immediately take another one back to Lagos and do so when a heavy rain is fallling especially in the ember months.

Better jerusalem. Whatever floats your boat man. What about a better Africa? You walk around with this fantasy in your head about some jew  descending  from the sky to save you, how long have you been waiting?

So you're saying Dube died because of those lyrics? His lyrics are social commentary, he didn't die because he alledgedly had a song with those lyrics, he died because the leaders of SA didn't rectify the economic and social situation over there, so take your crazy,baseless superstitions somewhere else.

I don't say these things for the sake of laughter,I say it because it's what I see around me, Black people losing our history and clinging to some foreign god is not funny.

@styrax,

from the tone of your writing, you have an inner conviction that Jesus is coming. Don't be carried away by comments or things happening around you, HE WILL SURELY COME LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT. Be prepared for him, move closer to him and you will not regret. Don't be tired of waiting, he is closer than you think.

And what do you think will happen when he comes and you are not prepared for him, may you not experience that in Jesus name.

Remember, every one to himself on the judgement day, no small or big excuse will be enough on that day. I wish you the best

Hello Dios,

I'm writing this little reply solely because of you.

Dios, TX i suppose means Texas in the United States if i'm right. I've not been there but i believe that as the LORD lives and if HE tarries a little while (which i doubt) i will be in Texas to minister the Gospel of my LORD JESUS.

America can be a beautiful place in terms of infrastructure and what have you, but the BIBLE says that there is a better JERUSALEM that eyes have not seen or that which have not come to ears of man.

Back to the main point, Dios, the Bible says that My people perish because of lack of knowledge (Hosea 4:6). So, among other destructive factors, ignorance is one of them. Correct me If i'm wrong with what you've written:

"Got JESUS? YES

Got DRAMA? YES

Ain't that a b#tch"

Dios, there are certain things you don't joke with and more importantly when it relates to SCRIPTURAL AND BIBLICAL THINGS.

Dios, a reggae musician, known all over the world, based in South Africa once sang sometime back in 1999 that;

"Have you ever imagined your wife being in black

Have you ever imagined your car stolen in the day time

Have you ever imagined you being shot in the head and so on"

Beloved, this musician because he said it ignorantly way back that time got exactly what he requested 8yrs after in the year 2007, just a few weeks back. That is the power being words be it written or spoken. (Death and Life are in the power of the tongue)

There are things you don't say or do for the sake of doing it or for the sake of laughter. The Almighty God, who HIMSELF is the foundation of WORDS doesn't play with words. Whatever God says HE'LL do, the exact same thing will HE DO.

Dios, this is only a tip of advise to you that you repent of such statement you have made consciously or unconsciously and ask GOD for forgiveness so that HE can have mercy and compassion on you. GOD is not a joker.

God bless you as you do so.

Styrax, believing in Jesus and that God exist is what we termed faith. You need faith to live life fully. i tell people that everyone depend on someone or something. Some on friends, some on objects and some on God. You sound like someone who wants to "see before you believe". Then if you must, you can not have faith. Faith is not logical and not reasonable. You need to believe what you dont see if you must follow Christ. I am in that level. If you have surrendered fully to Christ your life will be full of drama(im a living testimony). This is all about relationship with God. Im talking about the experience you have with God. I can tell you that God still speaks. Then how on earth can i doubt the God who talks to me. Moses saw God and he stopped doubting and so you cannot see God and doubt God. I pray that you will experience God, then you will not be tired waiting for His glorious second coming. And if He does not come in your generation, your faith in Him must have helped and blessed your neighbours and you.

This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:

2 that ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:

3 knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,

4 and saying, WHERE IS THE PROMISE OF HIS COMING? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.

5 For this they WILLINGLY are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water: 6 whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:

7 but the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.

8 But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.

9  THE LORD IS NOT SLACK CONCERNING HIS PROMISE, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, NOT WILLING THAT ANY SHOULD PERISH, but that all should come to repentance.

10 BUT THE DAY OF THE LORD WILL COME LIKE A THIEF IN THE NIGHT; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, WHAT MANNER OF PERSON OUGHT YE TO BE in all holy conversation and godliness,

12 LOOKING AND HASTING unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?

13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

14  Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, WITHOUT SPOT,AND BLAMELESS.

15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;

16 as also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.

17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.

18 But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.2 Peter 3.

Dont be discouraged if u are really waiting and don't be decieved by scoffers.Have a gret day.

You know there were a lot of people many many years ago, who felt like this too, the years simply came and went. Those generations died off. So you may not still be around when he comes. I think that you are focusing on the wrong thing, why are you tired of waiting? Are you not happy with the life God has given you? You are focusing on the wrong thing, you should think about the life your living and making sure you are ready, I am sure you are not perfect, no man is. So instead of using everyday of your life waiting to die or live. Use it to grow closer to Jesus so that when he comes you will meet him joyfully. Take that time you spend waiting on him to go visit a church, or old people home. Enjoy this life and God Bless you.
