Once upon a time, I was optimistic about that question from Christ. Five years down the line, and it’s a very different picture.
Nothing is too hard for the Lord: Jeremiah 32:17, and other Scriptures.
He promises He will bring His chosen through to the end. These days, some are trying to predict when He’ll come back. The churches I read about are branded as apostate. The world is falling apart. Disease runs rampant, everywhere. I could go on and on, and it paints a very gloomy picture.
I now know why Jesus asked that question. I read the reasons why, every single day.
We must never forget: the Lord is faithful. He has to be, or His Scriptures are written in vain.
We must NEVER give up. Stay in the Scriptures. Interpret them properly, and stay very, very close to the One Who has promised us rest.
