Originally preached on May 2011

And little wonder—since the last thing the Lord told His disciples was that He was coming back! Ever since Christ ascended, the Church has been awaiting that event. However, anticipating His return is a lot different from announcing the date of His coming. That’s altogether destructive—for a number of reasons . . . all explored by Stephen in this full-length message.
