Corona and Jesus’ Second Coming

Many wonder what the corona crisis means in light of the end times. Is this the end of the world? Will Jesus come back now? Jesus told us: No. Not yet. In Matthew 24, Jesus says that crises just like the one that has gripped the world today will precede his Second Coming. Yet he warned, that we should not be alarmed when we hear about wars, or crises hit the earth. All these are just “the beginning of the birth pains”. So when will the end come?

Our Father in Heaven?

One of the greatest discoveries a believer can make is the wonderful truth that God is our Father and we are his children. But we shouldn’t stop here. Understanding our identity as God’s children is no end in itself. It is the starting point of our relationship with the Father. And as every relationship works in two ways, this is the case also in our relationship with God. But what do we bring to that Father-child relationship? What does God, our Father, expect from us?

Soaring like eagles

If waiting on the LORD renews our strength, then why on earth do we keep running ahead of Him? We cannot stand unanswered prayer for too long, and since we like being in control, we take matters into our own hands. Maybe we give it a religious labelling (“I’m stepping out in faith”); while really we are fed up with waiting on God and try to push Him to start moving.
