People have been expecting Him to come since the mid-1800’s. If He had come any time in the ensuing 75 years, you wouldn’t exist to have to worry about it.

IOW, it seems to be all about you???

The church has been waiting since Jesus left.

There was the rumor that Jesus would return before all of the apostles died. Then, in the middle ages, people of that time thought Jesus would return at the turn of the first century.

Does this mean that the Church should stop looking? No.

Actually, my understanding of scripture is that from the moment Jesus left till Jesus does return, is ALL the last day.

So, the wise Christian just decides that the Lord knows what he is doing, and patiently waits.

As to why Jesus is waiting, it is for one reason, so that more can be saved.

“People have been expecting Him to come since the mid-1800’s.”

Actually, the Apostle Paul believed Christ would return in his lifetime.
