When you see the future, when do you see Christ physically returning, around what time period? C.
It is for the Father to decide when Jesus will return in physical form to walk the Earth.
The process of predicting involves many factors, and one of those factors is the will of God. Likewise, there are many factors involved with the return of Christ. One of those factors, too, is the will of God. Likewise, another factor in both of these is the willingness of human beings to attune to the will of God. Human beings have freewill and freewill will never be taken away. Put this altogether and it means what Jesus, Himself, said, “Only the Father knows.”
Predicting is only called predicting, because events have not yet happened. Yet, many events have already been laid out, planned and set in motion. These events are present to be foreseen and shared. We call this predicting. However, not all events are set in motion. Many events are determined by choices human beings make – whether we turn right or turn left – whether we go forward or backwards. The return of Christ will happen when humankind is ready, and right now there are 7, going on 8 billion people who are using their freewill to decide their lives, and this determines readiness.
If this confuses you, then live as if Christ were in your life already. Imagine giving Jesus a big hug, and Him hugging you right back.
