Roy’s Blog: “Shocking Number”

Matthew 24:42, 44 (NASB) “Therefore be on the alert for you do not know which day your Lord is coming. (v44) For this reason, you also must be ready; for the Son of Man is coming at an hour when you do not think He will.”

(PEW is a family name of the PEW Charitable Trusts that set up the PEW Research Center). According to PEW survey results 55% of Americans believe Jesus is coming to earth again. The question asked was simple. “Do you believe that Jesus will return to earth one day?”

Given the fact that Bible prophecy is rarely taught in churches these days and given how many Americans are drifting away from the church, that 55% is a shocking number! What really stunned many in the PEW study was how many non-Christians believe in the second coming of Jesus Christ…18 %, that includes Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Jews, and others.

The big question is why? Why do so many Americans believe we’re living in the last days and Jesus is coming back to earth, possibly very soon? It’s not because of the “Christian” pastors in the majority of our churches. It’s not due to coverage by the mainstream media. Yet, a majority of Americans believe Christ will return and the “Glorious Kingdom” will be set up for those who believe.

I believe our world spinning out of control, all the chaos, and sinking into moral depravity is “stirring” people’s hearts to long for the day that the Messiah will return to set things right.

Be ready, because I think what they (we) are yearning for will be answered soon!
