There is a story that speaks of a seminary professor who was leading a class in a small country church. After explaining the three classical views of the second coming of Jesus he invited questions and comments. One of the men of the church stood up and stated that he believed in a fourth view. “It doesn’t matter whether Jesus returns before or after the thousand-year reign of peace. I just know that in the end, I’m for Jesus coming again no matter how God does it.”
This Advent season, we continue to wait for Jesus to come again. We wait for the coming king, trusting that the God who kept his promise once will keep his promise again.
