Jesus is Coming Soon

I am amazed at the number of Christians who just assume that Jesus is coming soon. This idea is so much a part of the accepted wisdom that it is never questioned. No one ever asks if this is what the scriptures actually teach.

Down through history, Chrisitans have believed that Jesus would be coming soon. Most believed the signs were being fulfilled in their time. They were all proved wrong by history.

The minority who believed that God has more to do on this earth before Jesus can return have been proved right by history again and again.

We should always be ready for Jesus to return, but my reading of the scriptures is that God has a lot of goods stuff to do, before he will be ready to send Jesus back to end the show. I will be disappointed if Jesus returns soon, because I want to see the Holy Spirit show us his full bag of tricks.
