“Jesus is coming back,” Stan said.
“When?” I asked.
“No one but God the Father knows,” was Stan’s quick response. “But that doesn’t keep a lot of people from thinking they know.”
“And over the years there have been some tragic misleadings about reading the signs of the times and getting others way off base.”
“What do you think a person is to do about it?” I asked.
“Be like those two guys in white robes in the first chapter of The Acts of the Apostles.”
Stan continued, “Keep the right perspective. Know that Jesus is coming back and be prepared for that, but don’t stand around looking into the sky to see if He is coming.”
“There is a lot for each one of us to do on this side of eternity. Not included in that is standing around looking into the sky.”
“Either I am going to be here when He comes back or I will be coming with Him.”
“In the meantime,” Stan concluded, “I am to be doing and being just as the station master told you, my friend, at the beginning of your journey. [Note to the reader: See Entry Number 1, Waiting for the Train.]
And as they were gazing intently into the sky while He was departing, behold two men in white clothing stood beside them; and they also said, “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus, who has been taken up from you into heaven, will come in just the same way as you have watched Him go into Heaven.” Acts 1:10,11.
Prayer: I look forward to the return of Jesus. I would like to know when that is to be, but that is not for me to know. You have indicated the signs of His coming. Help me to see those signs and to be aware, but also please help me to focus on what you have for me to be and to do on this side of eternity while I am still here and before Jesus comes. Thank you that I can and do come before you in the name of Jesus. Amen.
