The apostle Paul spoke of the Lord returning soon.1Th 2:19 For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Are not even ye in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at his coming?Rom 16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.
2Th 2:1 Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him,... yet it has been 2,000 yrs. The apostle John also: Rev 22:10 And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.

2Th 2:3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, (Day of Christ) except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;... Today's technologies can mark and # the inhabitants of the planet. The 2% of sodomites controlling the earth are given the green light by God Himself. To try, test the saints to make them ready to enter His kingdom. 2Th 1:4 So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure: 
2Th 1:5 Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which ye also suffer:...
