From Sunday:

Have you ever thought about the irony of Jesus prophesying his own coming? That's right. Jesus, the one the Gospel of John calls the "Word made flesh to live among us" is telling them to be watchful, to be ready, because they have no idea when the Savior will come again. That's something only God knows, and it's in God's time. It seems very backward, and you can imagine the questions Jesus must have gotten after this prophetic moment.
"But wait ... you are here now. What about right now?"
I am sure someone asked, "Aren't you the one we've been waiting for?"

En Agape',
Rev. Michael
