After sending out the last toon about God sending Christ back when the proper time had fully come, the focus was on the difficulty with waiting for His glorious return. However, there is another way to view this and thank you Bonnie for
pointing this out!
Paul shares a struggle with the church at Philippi regarding his desire to be with them or with Christ. "For me, to live is Christ, but to die is gain!" Paul continues, "But if I am to live on in the flesh, this will mean fruitful labor for me..." This is the point Bonnie made to me. That yes, Christ's return will be glorious! But as long as He tarries, it gives us
more time to speak out for Christ; maybe having the opportunity to have a part in ushering the last saved soul into Heaven!
So, sigh, that sound we heard was not Gabriel's trumpet, but rather an angry driver laying on their car horn. But that just means more time to do what God has asked us to do! - 0 seconds
