I don't know where this got started and I really don't care, but the bible says that "no man know the hour of His coming". Jesus is sitting at the right hand of the Father waiting for God to send him, Jesus doesn't even know when he will be sent. So relax people, we don't have plenty of time!!! I do believe we are in the end of the "last days", but since Jesus told his disciples that he was coming back soon and that was more than 2000 yrs ago...it could be next week or it could be in another 2000 yrs. The bible also says that he will come "like a theif in the night" meaning when no one is expecting him.
I believe we should be ready and prepare ourselves for his coming. Get ourselves ready but also help as many others as you can get ready, too. Be the brides that were ready for the bridegroom and have enough oil for your lamp and don't be left behind.
