Do you have questions for the Lord?
We have plenty of why questions?
Why did you let my parent die?
Why did someone else recover from cancer and my family member didn’t?
There are also when and where questions.
You are invited to read the following Scripture passage.
20 Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, “The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation,
21 nor will people say, ‘Here it is,’ or ‘There it is,’ because the kingdom of God is within you.”
22 Then he said to his disciples, “The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it.
23 Men will tell you, ‘There he is!’ or ‘Here he is!’ Do not go running off after them.
24 For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.
25 But first, he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man.
27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building.
29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.
30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
31 On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything.
33 Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it.
34 I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left.
35 Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left.”
37 “Where, Lord?” they asked. He replied, “Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather.”
Most of the when questions revolve around end-time events. For myself, I try to let the when questions up to the Lord God. I try to, with the Spirit of God leading and guiding to always be ready. I desire to live my life that no matter what happens, no matter when I die I will be ready.
The first leg of this kind of journey is to accept Christ’s blood for our sins. Say yes to Jesus and let Him worry about all those questions we have. One day Lord willing we will be given the mind of Christ and not have to worry about questions. Then we will know the answers. That day is coming friend, simply be ready.
16 “For who has known the mind of the Lord
that he may instruct him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.
