"Now learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that summer is near." - Matthew 24:32

"Little children, it is the last hour; and as you have heard that the Antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come, by which we know that it is the last hour." - 1 John 2:18

Since the time of the apostles during the first century, the coming of our Lord was a much anticipated event. The disciples firmly believed that the coming of Christ was imminent. All believers in Christ are called to eagerly hope and wait for the return of our Lord. Christ told us to learn from the fig tree to discern the last hour. When we look at our world today and all the things happening, it is even more compelling to think that the return of our Lord is right at the door. But we do not know the hour. Like previous faithful believers did, all we do is eagerly hope and wait for our Lord. Christ will return, and it could be today.
Praise the Lord!
