A ‘COMING SOON!’ announcement often precedes future events in entertainment and sports, or the launch of the latest technology. The goal is to create anticipation and excitement for what is going to happen, even though it may be months away.

While reading the book of Revelation, I was impressed with the ‘coming soon’ sense of immediacy permeating the entire book. Rather than saying, ‘Someday, in the far distant future, Jesus Christ is going to return to earth,’ the text is filled with phrases like ‘things which must shortly take place’ (1:1) and ‘the time is near’ (v.3).

Three times in the final chapter, the Lord says, ‘I am coming quickly’ (Rev. 22:7,12,20). Other versions translate this phrase as, ‘I’m coming soon,’ ‘I’m coming speedily,’ and ‘I’m on My way!’ How can this be—since 2,000 years have elapsed since these words were written? ‘Quickly’ doesn’t seem appropriate for our experience of time.

Rather than focusing on a date for His return, the Lord is urging us to set our hearts on His promise that will be fulfilled. We are called to live for Him in this present age ‘looking for the blessed hope and glorious appearing of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ’ (Titus 2:13).

As with today’s text, 2 Peter 3:1-10 deals with Jesus’ imminent return. Peter explains that ‘the Lord is not slack concerning His promise . . . but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance’ (v.9).
