Q: How can we be ready for the second coming of Jesus?

A: There is a way to be ready, but it’s not by speculating about when the exact day and hour will be. No man knows that (Matthew 24:36, 25:13). We do know something about the approaching of that day. By studying Matthew 24 and Mark 13, we see that there are signs and events which have begun to happen that let us know His return is definitely getting closer. Our daily news reads like it was written from these verses which speak of wars and rumors of wars, famines, pestilences, and earthquakes in many places.

So here are our basic instructions—no matter when the time will be: Be watching (Matthew 24:42; Mark 13:37) and working (Luke 12:32-43). Keep studying the Word to be strong in faith and spend time in prayer. Each believer has a responsibility and a specific work to do to reap the end time harvest of souls before the Lord’s return. It is best to be personally prepared to meet Jesus at any moment, but make plans to keep working for Him for a lifetime, because only the Father knows the exact time Jesus will return (Matthew 24:36).
