But if that wicked servant says to himself, ‘My master is delayed,’ and begins to beat his fellow servants and eats and drinks with drunkards, the master of that servant will come on a day when he does not expect him and at an hour he does not know and will cut him in pieces and put him with the hypocrites. In that place there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Here again we see Jesus telling it exactly as it is.
No minced words.
No softening of the truth.
Act on it.
Jesus is never delayed in fulfilling the purpose of God. He is moving in perfect time and must always be expected. He is near. He is on time. He will arrive at just the right moment and those who love Him and long for His coming are expectant and ready – living and loving as He has commanded. Those who convince themselves that He is delayed or simply not coming at all and begin to live according to their own lusts will be painfully surprised. Eternal sadness will characterize their existence.
Stay humble and expectant. Lock arms with those who are longing and watching for His return. When we fix our eyes on the skies watching for His arrival we guard our hearts and our minds on this earth.
Maranatha! Come Lord Jesus.
