Why do many believe that Jesus could return at any moment?

Dr. Paul Feinberg: What characterizes a pre-tribulational Rapture position is that for a pre-tribulationist, the next event that must occur on God’s prophetic calendar is the catching away of the Church to meet the Lord in the air—1 Thessalonians 4:14-18. This is a time when Paul says “the dead in Christ,” those who have been a part of the Church from the time of Pentecost to the Rapture, will be resurrected, “caught up to meet the Lord in the air, then those of us who are alive and remain to the coming of the Lord will be caught up to meet them and we will be forever with the Lord.”

John 14:1-3 gives the destination of those who participate in the Rapture of the Church, we are going to the Father’s house. And in the Father’s house there literally are many rooms, and Jesus told His disciples that if He went away, He would prepare a place and He would come again and receive us unto Himself, that where He is, there we may be with Him also.

So we are commanded in the New Testament, I believe, not to look for signs, not to look for wrath or the judgment of God, but to look for Jesus Christ who is going to appear in the air to take us to be with Him. And that may happen at any time. We need to be ready at any moment to face our Lord Jesus Christ.

INTERSTING…however, I would like to point out something. The Title captures the attention…with….”Why do so many believe that Jesus could return at any moment.” Then fails to answer the question presented, rather the author ends the article with his/her opinion w/out answering the question of the title. Permit me to explain. ” ….and that may happen at any time. ” Cant help but ask…who is the writer? They certainly left much out…don’t you think John Ankerberg?
