When is Jesus getting back here?

You know sometimes you just want to ask the question, "When is all this madness in the world going to end?" You come up against the falleness of our human kind in so many situations and in so many people. It just makes you wonder when enough will be enough.

You see crookedness in the government, both on a local level and national level and even multinational level. You meet people in your church who would rather follow man made rules than actually obeying God. You notice the faults in others so quickly yet they themselves seem oblivious or apathetic.

This is not too mention the multifaceted faults in our own self. Pride, greed, covetousness, envy, hatred, unkindness, blasphemy, self-seeking, complaining, and all out self absorption. Getting out all the logs in our own eyes could help us see better, for sure. But who wants to do that? And if we do decide to who wants to go first?

All this rebellion individually and cooperatively prompts me to ask, "When is Jesus getting back here?" Maranatha!!

Did he leave?

Haha. I totally get what you're saying. The evil was here before and after the first bodily advent of Christ. Since his Ascension, it continues.

AND of course, he did send the Holy Spirit back. Then there is the "body" of Christ.

So, yeah in those senses, and probably ones I'm not thinking about, Jesus' presence is still here.

Just trying to identify with some longing and possible hope of a better place/time/dimension etc. than the present. The same sentiment felt by the writer(s) who said, "Even so Lord, come," and "Maranatha!"

Keeping me on my toes. Thanks.
