We are in the time of grace
This is the question of many: why does not the Lord hasten His coming? Why not clean the face of the earth? The answer is simple: because He wants to prolong to the time of grace, so that no one is lost. God is delaying His coming so that, in this time of mercy, all His children will convert and cease to live in the corruption of this world. If the Lord had already returned and exercised His justice over the whole earth, many of us would be lost. The time of grace has been prolonged so that more people are saved. Have you ever wondered: what if the Lord had come before our conversion happened? He would find us in the mire of this world and we would be taken with the mud together. That is why God has delayed the time of His coming. We are in the time of grace, but it is certain that there will be the day of cleansing: the great and dreadful day of the Lord. If we proclaim a year of grace from the Lord, we also proclaim a day of vengeance of our God. After cleansing the face of the earth, the Lord will come to implant His Kingdom.
God bless you!
