Any Thoughts ?
"We are to desire the Lord's return, but the time that immediately precedes His return"
Matt. 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened.
That's why we shouldn't say "bring on the Sunday laws". We should strive that the time of peace lasts longer, and the time of persecution is shortened. "Shortened" doesn't just mean the end of it comes sooner, but can also mean the beginning of it is delayed.
So the duration of the final "great tribulation", may, to some extent, be determined by us?
God has put it in our power to hasten (or, by inference, delay, and thereby shorten,) the day of God?
Isn't that the whole point of the "religious liberty" cause?
The Roman Church teaching against the literal Second Coming claimed to instead be a Lutheran heresy: Millenarianism
