When God’s Patience Runs Out

It’s never a good idea to play the percentages with God, because God is right 100 percent of the time.

I think I know why God is the only One who knows when the world is going to end. He hasn’t set the date yet. The Bible says, “The Lord isn’t really being slow about his promise to return, as some people think. No, he is being patient for your sake” (2 Peter 3:9).

When you have patience, you wait for the right moment. I believe that God is waiting for the right moment to send Jesus back to Earth (ending the world as we know it). And that moment has a lot to do with people giving God their hearts. Of course, even God’s patience is going to run out at some point, which begs the question, “Why would anyone want to take a chance of being on the wrong side of God’s patience?”

That is why the Lord says, “Turn to me now, while there is time! Give me your hearts.” Joel 2:12

    I might just add that when God’s patience does run out, it simply means our probation is closed. No more time to repent, so Joel 2:12 is a very real beckoning to ‘come’ to Him now before it’s too late.
    Do not be discouraged or ‘heavy hearted’ about what you may see in the church. Remember the church is made up of a host of ‘imperfect’ people. What you should continue to do, as admonished by Paul is to maintain friendship, unity and develop the ‘fruits of the spirit’. Continue to be a good steward yourself, despite what others are doing, the Lord sees your faithfulness. Maintain your relationship because when your trials come, you will be strengthened, it will build you up, and God in turn uses YOU to build others up also. But I do believe God has already set a date for His return, as He knows ‘all’ things. God’s time is not man’s time, and many think He will not come, but He will return as a thief in the night, (unexpectedly) when we least expect Him.
