"Looking for and hastening unto the coming
of the day of God..."
2 Peter 3:12
I think all of us are very aware that this ol' world is in
most dire straits.
I am certain all of us agree we want our Lord to come
quickly, even as John-the-Revelator prayed, "Even so, come, Lord
Now, in the text above Peter tells us we not only are
"looking for that day," but can actually "hasten" or "speed up"
that day, the glorious day of His coming for you and for me.
You may be wondering how can we do that?
I suggest two ways we can indeed "hasten that day."
1) Share the Faith
It seems as though there is a "last person" who will
make up the "Fulness of the Gentiles" (Romans 11:25) and when he
or she gets saved, we will all be going home!!!
So let us preach the gospel and hasten that day!!!
2) Pray in Faith
Jesus taught us to pray to our Father, "Thy Kingdom Come..."
In Daniel's day, as he was reading the Scripture, he realized
the prophetic significance of the days he was living in,
so he immediately went into a time of purposed and passionate
prayer that would impact his day and give him further insight
into The Lord's prophetic plan (see Daniel 9).
So for we who indeed desire to see Him sooner, let us Share
the Faith and Pray in Faith, and in so doing, doing what we can
to indeed "hasten the day." Amen?
