Get Ready! Jesus Returns May 21, 2011

Jesus is coming back for His church.  True statement.  To say he is returning on May 21, 2011 is just crazy.  A friend of ours, of reputation in the Kingdom says, ” If you want to know for sure when He is NOT coming, just set a date.”  He made this statement back when the 88 Reason The Rapture Will Happen in 1988 book was selling by the truckloads.  Sure, they made some serious coin off that theory and what happened?  People run up their credit cards, sold their homes, tarnished reputations, even put their dogs to sleep.

So, check this out!  Hundreds of billboards are going up around the country with bold statements like “Noah Knew….”   We Can Know.com.

Browsing their website, we found they have a good argument.  Well laid out and if we have learned anything from our earlier, extremely obnoxious Christian life, it is to not jump to an opinion before re-weighing the facts.  Religion wears many hats and the facts we were so sure of ended up being half-truths from minds that bent the scriptures to their own conclusions and needs. (Would we love to do a whole series on that subject. Especially the “prosperity” messages. “Give 1,000 today and get miracles for the next 7 months. Right!!) 2 Peter 2:1

What was our command made from the Lord himself?  Rather than worry about the time, place, or date lets instead focus on watching and praying. The eVent will take care of itself.  Matt 24 The best quote, out of all the chatter was from the Detroit paper and it said,

“The Rev. Ed Rowe of Central United Methodist Church in Detroit said that if “Jesus is coming, that’s cool.”  But he said it’s more important to focus on acting out the message of Jesus, rather than worrying about when exactly he’s going to return.

“In the meantime, what are we doing to care for people who have been kicked to the curb, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to keep people in their homes?”  Rowe said.  “Maybe we should worry more about that, and a little less about when he’s coming back.”” We say AMEN to that a 100 times over.
