“Even if it should delay, keep in expectation of it!” – Hab. 2:3
Jesus repeatedly told us to keep on the watch and be in expectation of his return. (Mt. 24:42; Lu 21:34-36) However, he also warned us about false prophets promoting false expectations. Matt 24:23-Then if anyone says to you, ‘Look! Here is the Christ,’ or, ‘There!’ do not believe it. 24 For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will perform great signs and wonders so as to mislead, if possible, even the chosen ones. 25 Look! I have forewarned you. 26 Therefore, if people say to you, ‘Look! He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out; ‘Look! He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it.”
How could he have worded this more plainly? Yet people and Organisations continue to misconstrue his words. Then obviousness of the sign of Jesus’ presence is given-“For just as the lightning comes out of the east and shines over to the west, so the presence of the Son of man will be.” (Mt 24:27)
Is there anything in nature more obvious than lightning flashing in the sky? It’s an interesting metaphor our Lord has chosen, is it not? You can even have your eyes closed when lightning flashes and the light still penetrates to the retina. So, then Do you need someone to tell you that lightning has flashed? That is the reason for Jesus’ use of this metaphor. This is a visible sign to all the nations- yes it seems, Our own eyes will see it. (Re 1:7) .
