The second coming

Timing is everything

Where are you, Jesus? You said you were coming back. That was 2,000 years ago. Maybe where you are 2,000 years is like two months or two years but here on this lonely isolated planet it’s a hell of a long time. And I do mean hell.

If you’re coming, come now, the time is more than right. Because time is running out for eight billion doomed creatures of the Unknown Outcome.

I think if a man says he’s going to do something, like come back to earth and save humanity from oblivion, then he should bloodywell do it. Or at least offer a reason for his absence and the lack of all communication these past two millennia. 

But we don’t even get the courtesy of that. Silence. Nothing but silence. From you — and, for godsake, from God. What are we to believe? Are we to believe anything? If I wasn’t a gentleman, Jesus, I’d say it’s beginning to sound like bullshit.

And we don’t have time for bullshit. Do you know how badly you are needed here? Do you even keep in touch? Or is that just Bible melodrama? Anything for a good story, eh?

Let me spell it out for you. Imagine if you will (haha! here’s to you Rod Serling!) a burned-out cinder spinning uselessly around the sun, devoid of all life. Now, let me ask you, what the hell good is that? Don’t let it come to that, Jesus, because that’s where it’s heading.

I kid you not.

  1. One Day is too God as aThousand Years. He is outside time as The Christ is now at the Right Hand of the Almighty making intercession And when the Son of Man comes will he find faith in Earth? Yes cause people aren’t affraid to speak to him even with or without poetic license. Like Jimi Hendrix said, through Dylan The hours is getting late.

  2. Tweedy’s right, of course, I’m just playing devil’s advocate. Time for one of your trefgems, Geo.

  3. You bet, Mitchele, and when Judgment Day comes, as Black Sabbath sings: ‘On their knees, the war pigs crawling / Begging mercies for their sins…’

  4. Jesus has explained the reason for his delay. Second Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.” The purpose of his delay is to give more people the opportunity to repent and be saved. Rather than complaining about this, you should take advantage of the opportunity. If Jesus did return today what do you think your fate would be?

  5. Thanks for the clarification, Clyde. Now I think about it, and based on comments, 2,000 years is but an infinitesimal moment in the godly realm.
