Jesus' clearest teaching about the end is for us to be alert? To watch! To not get lazy, complacent, and tied to political movements that promise peace - when only God can bring that. You have to ask, Why do people want so badly to figure out WHEN it will all go down? Is it maybe because we don’t think it will result in what is good and best - and could ruin all our fun? Of course, that all begs the question of how we see Jesus - and His character. Why would John say at the end of Revelation, Even so Lord Jesus come! Was it just because he wanted an end to the pain of living at a time when Jesus and His ways were very unpopular?
