Why is Jesus taking so long to come back?

But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare. 2 Peter 3:8-10

God’s time clock is different from ours.

We think of ourselves and our own little world.  

God sees the whole world simultaneously, the pain they are enduring now and the pain they may have to face for eternity.

We see time in seconds, minutes and hours. God sees years, decades, millenniums (as well as seconds, minutes and hours).

The promise of Jesus’ return is not too slow or too fast, but right on schedule.

God wants as many people as possible to get into heaven, because when Jesus cries “Time’s up”, it will be final and complete.  There will be no turning back.

It’s good for others that Jesus does not come back today, but hard on those who cannot wait to be rid of this world and enter into eternity.

We need to have God’s heart in this situation and adopt his calendar.   We need to know that every minute around the world, another person puts their faith in God and eternity is secured in their hearts.

The time of Jesus’ return is coming and it will happen sooner than you think.
