The only thing Jesus & we know about the Second Coming is that it will come when we least anticipate it. That’s because only God the Father knows the exact time. Throughout the Gospels Jesus warned His disciples to “Be on guard!” “Be alert!” “Be always on the watch!” The analogy He gives, about servants waiting for their master is found earlier in Luke 12:35-36, “Be dressed ready for service and keep your lamps burning, like men waiting for their master to return from a wedding banquet, so that when he comes and knocks they can immediately open the door for him.” The imagery here depicts servants with their loins girded for battle, their long robes hiked up under a belt, allowing free & instantaneous movement as they wait alert & ready for their master to return. That’s why Jesus’ warning to “Be ready!” should not be taken lightly or apathetically. For all we know…today may be the day.
