A Glimpse

Wednesday December 19th, James 5: 7 Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. 8 You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near. 9 Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door! James was written sometime after the resurrection. Making sense out of what they perceived as having to wait too long was foremost in their hearts and minds. My theory is that the second coming must wait until all humanity begins to grasps that the world is not made up of us and them, only an expanded “us.” Even James was able to get at least a glimpse of it in verse 9. Maybe you can begin to get a glimpse of God’s heavenly intention for earth too!!
