From today’s Gospel (Luke 17:20-25)
'Asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God was to come, Jesus gave them this answer, ‘The coming of the kingdom of God does not admit of observation and there will be no one to say, “Look here! Look there!” For, you must know, the kingdom of God is among you.’
He said to the disciples, ‘A time will come when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man and will not see it. They will say to you, “Look there!” or, “Look here!” Make no move; do not set off in pursuit; for as the lightning flashing from one part of heaven lights up the other, so will be the Son of Man when his day comes. But first he must suffer grievously and be rejected by this generation.’'
Be in no doubt, Jesus Christ is going to return to earth on the Day of Judgment. And as Jesus says, “Make no move”. We do not need to travel anywhere to find him when that day comes. He will find each and every one of us so that we can be rightly judged based on our lives and how we have followed the Commandments of God and how we have loved each other. There will be no hiding place for anyone. We will all stand before the Father whereupon our eternal fate will be decided.
