The Time is getting closer!

Though it’s not counted as scripture, the Epistle of Barnabas a 1st century writing; it gives an interesting thought. That at least one person in the the 1st century thought Jesus could return somewhere around the year 2033; (From the beginning of creation, to 2033, would be about 6000 years!) I’m not saying he will; but it should cause some to think about what one believes about Jesus’s return! Some people think very little to nothing about the fact, that one day he will return just as scripture describes. Whether he returns around the year 2033 or one hundred, or one thousand years afterwards really isn’t the point. We all should live our lives as if he could come at anytime and that we should be about our Father’s business today! Are you ready; ready or not he will come. Each day we are getting closer to his return; how will he find you? Are you looking for his return and doing his Father’s business or have you stopped looking?

The Epistle of Barnabas, it says

Barnabas 15:3 Of the Sabbath He speaketh in the beginning of the creation; And God made the works of His hands in six days, and He ended on the seventh day, and rested on it, and He hallowed it.

Barnabas 15:4 Give heed, children, what this meaneth; He ended in six days. He meaneth this, that in six thousand years the Lord shall bring all things to an end; for the day with Him signifyeth a thousand years; and this He himself beareth me witness, saying; Behold, the day of the Lord shall be as a thousand years. Therefore, children, in six days, that is in six thousand years, everything shall come to an end.

Barnabas 15:5 And He rested on the seventh day. this He meaneth; when His Son shall come, and shall abolish the time of the Lawless One, and shall judge the ungodly, and shall change the sun and the moon and the stars, then shall he truly rest on the seventh day.
