When will the end of times come? For centuries people have attempted to pinpoint a specific date and all have been wrong. Some have looked at the many wars raging around the world. They have looked at the strange weather patterns that have caused hurricanes, tsunamis, and tornadoes. We have seen inexplicable earthquakes and other “natural events” which seemed to harken the end of time.
All of these things are signs that the end is near but they are not what will trigger Jesus’ return. As darkness spreads around the world the gross darkness will not hasten his return. What will trigger Jesus’ return is people coming to know who He is. “And the Good News about the Kingdom will be preached throughout the whole world, so that all nations will hear it; and then the end will come.” (Matthew 24:14)
When we share with others the love of Jesus that is what will hasten His return. Every time you perform an act of kindness and let people know how much God loves them, you are speeding up Jesus’ return. It’s not the bad that happens it’s the numbers of people who hear the Good News. Will you commit today to sharing your faith so that others join God’s family?
