How Soon is Soon?
And so we pray, we work, and we wait—resting in the assurance that “God’s purposes know no haste and no delay” (The Desire of Ages, 32).
For as long as we can remember, we have believed that “Jesus is coming soon.” This theme has been our central message—embedded in our very name—Seventh-day Adventist.
Long ago, Adam and Eve waited for the Promised One, believing He would arrive in their lifetime. Each succeeding generation lived with the same air of expectancy—“Surely Jesus is coming soon!” And yet we’re still here, still waiting for His return.
Author Marvin Moore tackles this tension by examining our expectations about the future. He shows how they influence our sense of mission. To be sure, Bible prophecy and current events point to Jesus’ soon return, but the precise timing of that moment rests entirely with God. He has only called us to share His love with a dying world.
