Our Lord is coming as a thief in the night. You say, “Well, Pastor Rogers, why has Jesus not yet come?” I’ll tell you why our Lord has not yet come. The answer is found in God’s Word.
“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9). The Lord is waiting on people to be saved.
Maybe you have a sister, or husband, or child who isn’t saved. Jesus is waiting. But one of these days, soon and very soon perhaps, Jesus will return. You see, it is the mercy of God that holds back the Second Coming of Jesus. But the justice of God and the judgment of God say that one day He will come.
And even now, the raging waters of God’s wrath are furiously pounding against the dam of His mercy. One of these days, the dam of God’s mercy will give way to God’s judgment and the day of the Lord will come. Our Lord is coming!"
