The Second Coming and the Fear thereof has overcome and overtaken the Love of Jesus. The seeds of Fear was sown through the Book of Romans, when the writer said “fear to whom fear is due!”
When Jesus propagated Fearlessness through his actions and reminded Pilate of his powerlessness if it wasn’t given from above; asked the High Priest’s sycophants the reason of His fault for smiting His cheek; or even when He told the soldiers at Gethsemane that it was Him that they were looking for? should I believe another mortal writing ‘ Fear to whom Fear is due’.
Fear is only due to God, when the Love for God had subsided!
It is a deficiency of the soul.
So the fear of being left out at the Coming of the Groom is the agent which is the starting point of all spiritual Fear! The Event has overtaken The Love of the God out of whom the ‘event’ takes place!
Jesus was fearless and everyday when a man goes to bed at night, he is likely to meet his Second Coming.
When asked by His disciples: When would the event be? He says: It is not for me or you to know such Times, and only the Father knows it. When Jesus Himself submitted to that level of ignorance vis a vis the Father, who are we to get Curious and start predicting an event ‘shortly’ implying thereby that the event would come to pass even during their lifetime! Second Coming is an event which would be the last cut-off day of Grace for those who are alive, with no recourse to repentance! Purgatory notwithstanding!
So that Fear is unfounded and baseless to Christianity!
