Biblical Signs of the Second Coming Of Jesus Christ

by Jack Wellman on March 28, 2011 · Print Print · Email Email

When Jesus Christ’s disciples asked Him about His return and the “end of the world” their focus was not on the physical end of the earth and its civilization per se. They had in mind the end of the age of man’s rule (the Greek word translated “world” is aion, meaning “age”) and the commencement of a different age ruled by Jesus Christ as king, a reign identified elsewhere in Scripture as the kingdom of God.

In His reply, Christ described the many and varied conditions that would precede His return. They included such things as deception, wars, famines, disease epidemics, earthquakes and religious persecution, all culminating in an unprecedented time of worldwide calamity. We have already experienced in the disastrous 20th and 21st centuries many harbingers of just such a calamity. The earthquake in Japan and ensuing tsunami is a good example. But if we are to believe the prophecies of Scripture, there are many worse events yet to come. (Matt. 24: 3-29)

Just before Jesus’ return He continued by say, ‘Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. And there shall be signs in the sun and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men’s hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken.’” (Luke 21 v.10-11, 25-26)

The Apostle Paul Addresses Signs of Jesus’ Return

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts,  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. (2 Timothy 3:1-7)  According to this, a communication gap is not the problem. The cause of increasing immorality is simply an increase in pride and sinfulness; a decrease in desire for true godliness.

The Apostle Paul accurately predicted, “The time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths” (2 Tim. 4:3, 4). It is understood, the “desires” which some will try to “suit” are sinful! Could it be that doctrinal mythology is the result of people with “itching ears” turning to “a great number of teachers” who will say what itching ears with sinful desires want to hear?

Without Natural Affection – One of the most basic Judeo Christian principles has been the natural and beautiful attraction between the sexes. The love of a mother and father for their children, the love of the extended family for each other, and the love of one’s country were similarly considered “natural.” Today we are living in a depraved Romans chapter one world that many fear God has given or will give up to “vile passions” that reverse the normal order of things. (Roman 1 v.26-27)

The Apostle Peter Addresses Signs Of Jesus’ Second Coming

It is fascinating to note that almost 2000 years ago the apostle Peter, an untrained Galilean fisherman, predicted the exact thinking patterns that would characterize these scoffers. He prophesied that … “Scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.” For this they willfully forget: that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of water and in the water, by which the world that then existed perished, being flooded with water. But the heavens and the earth which now exist are kept in store by the same word, reserved for fire until the Day of Judgment and perdition of ungodly men.” (2 Peter 3 v.3-7)

Why does Peter say that the scoffers are so blind?  He provides us with 2 reasons why: The first is found in 2 Peter 3 v5, “For this they willfully forget.” The unregenerate minds of unbelievers resist the idea of the intervention of God in human affairs. Their problem is spiritual, a matter of the will, and the unbeliever remains deliberately ignorant of the truth. Peter mentions a second reason for the scoffer’s intellectual blindness in verse 3.  He was told that “the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.”

The King is coming, enjoy this video as you continue to read on:

The Prophet Daniel On The Final Days When Jesus Comes Again

“Many shall be purified, made white, and refined, but the wicked shall do wickedly” But Daniel was told that the remaining prophecies are sealed until the last days and that “the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.” (Dan. 12 v.9)

The Top 7 Signs of the Tribulation

Rev. 9: 20 lists the top 7 signs of the Tribulation:

  •  Rebellion against God (“They did not repent”).
  •  Worship of Demons
  •  Idolatry
  •  Murders
  •  Sorceries (“Phar-mak-voos”, from pharmaco for drugs)
  •  Sexual Immorality
  •  Thefts

Why not accept the Lord as Savior today and cleanse all sin from your life and your entry into heaven is secure.  Jesus sacrifice renders you blameless before God in the Great Day of Judgment (Rev. 20:12).  You can be in front of two different Judgment Seats. The Beam Seat of Christ, where the saved are given their eternal rewards, and with it, eternal life or at the Great White Throne Judgment, where the only judgment is to be separated from Jesus Christ for eternity. No one knows the day Christ will return. The end your chance to be saved can come anytime because no one has any guarantee that they will live beyond tomorrow. Die without Christ and the end is now. Here’s how to make certain you are ready at any time:

How to Receive & Know you Have Eternal Life

Admit – that you are a sinner and in need of a Savior (Rom 6:23)

Abandon – self-effort and realize that you can not be saved by your works or your own efforts (Acts 16:31)

Accept freely Christ’s payment for your sins, required of the Father (John 3:16)

Acknowledge Jesus Christ as your personal lord and Savior (Acts 4:12)

Now you can never be lost again and can live forever (John 10:28-29).  As I said, no one has any guarantee that they will live beyond tomorrow and if you die without Christ, for you, the end is now; and for all eternity. Make the decision today, right now. His return has never been closer than it is today. No one knows exactly when Jesus returns but Hebrews 3:7-15 and II Corinthians 6:2 say that, Today is the accepted day of salvation, and now is the day of salvation. Tomorrow may never come. I beg you to come today, while it is still called today.

Hi, Jack. Forgive my selfishness but it has got me down a bit. Not a day goes by that I don’t think about humanity and their problems and eternal destiny. I’m constantly wishing God’s joy, peace, and blessings on all those Satan has in his clutches. I would give up everything I had and give it all to even the worst criminal on earth if it meant they would know God and His love. Secondly and this is what gets me down as well. I have no gifts and talents. I’m not that special and have no idea what I am good at. I was raised in a talented family, married to a beautiful, talented princess of God and our son is already excelling intellectually and he’s only seven. I don’t know who I am.

Jack Wellman March 6, 2013 at 6:32 pm

Brandon. I am actually encouraged by your comment my friend. Here’s why. You sound like Paul’s compassionate and broken heart for the lost for he said in Romans 9:13, “For I could wish that I myself were cursed and cut off from Christ for the sake of my brothers, those of my own race.” You have the gift of mercy because you want to rescue the perishing. A great deal of Christians are sitting at home tonight watching TV or listening to music while the rest of the world is on a broad path to destruction, yet you care! That’s awesome. You actually have an evangelists heart. ALL of God’s children have gifts. There is not one believer who doesn’t at least have a few. Most have several. I know who you are. You are a man after God’s own heart…a heart that breaks for the lost and are not willing, like God, that any should perish. Here is what I suggest:

First, read this:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-evangelize-door-to-door-seven-helpful-tips/

And then this:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/how-to-share-the-gospel-with-family/

I get a strong, strong sense that you would do excellent in Evangelism and Outreach, handing out Bible tracts, even street evangelism. Now don’t fall off your chair. There are many who never once in their lives share the gospel. Here is another one to read:

http://www.whatchristianswanttoknow.com/who-goes-to-heaven-do-good-people-go-to-heaven/

It may be God’s purpose to have you to come here to learn about how powerfully God can use you. It takes a man of God, and the Word of God, with the Spirit of God, to make children of God. See it? You HAVE gifts. Now start reading these links. Copy them down to a document and start studying how God is going to possibly use you in a most powerful way. Remember, the powers in the message (the Bible) not in the messenger and God is glorified by using weak, inept vessels (like me) to proclaim the gospel and save souls so that God will be glorified in that this was only possible because of His Spirit! Let me know what you think. This could change your life and could change the eternal destiny of those who are presently headed to hell on a broad path.

Yes, but its not too late for your next door neighbors, your friends, your uncle Joe, your….the guy standing on the street. Some of the most effective Bible tracts around are at the wayofthemaster.com’s store. Get em’, spread em out, leave them on winshields of car’s wipers, mail em’ back when you pay bills, leave them in the car wash, the laundry mat, there are hundreds of places. If someone is breathing…and there are lots of em’…God is not done with them yet. There is still hope for the living! Go get em tiger.

Hi Brandon, wanted to share a few things with you because a few things have really hit home. I’d like for you to take Bro Jack’s advise, he is a wise man and God has used him mightily.
First, watch the words that come out of your mouth. The Bible
says life and death are in the power of the tongue. This was very difficult for me because I used to be pessimist about so much. ( I had taken a few notes one night listening to Joel Osteen.). But with The Lord leading, I wrote these down.
#1. I am valuable! #2. I can do ALL things throug Christ.
#3. I am more than a conquered. #4. I am fearfully and wonderfully made. #5 I’m excited about my life, my best
are still ahead. #6 Lord, you said I’m the head and not the
tail. Now, did I “feel” all this? No!!! But as I begin to speak good things and as I sought The Lord. My whole life
changed!! Please, try this. But the main thing is to seek
The LORD!!!
And I do not like your last statement, regarding never
being born. Brandon!! God knew YOU in your mothers
womb!! You my friend are believing lies from the enemy!
Now is not the time to quit, so come on “RISE UP!!”
There’s a lost world out there.

Brandon,
I’m trying to correct a previous post, in
hopes you will see it. So bear with me.
I want to encourage you to take Bro Jack’s
advice. He’s a mighty man of God.
I wanted to share what helped me tremendous
Brandon, The Bible says life and death are
in the power of the tongue. You’re speaking
defeat. I watched Joel Osteen one night and
I made a decision to change what I was
saying about my life. #1 I am valuable.
#2 I can do all things through Christ.
#3. I am more than a conquerer. #4 I am
fearfully and wonderfully made. #5 Lord,
You said, I am the head and not the tail.
The challenge was to say these OUT LOUD
at least 3 times a day, more if ya can for
30 days. Now, did I believe what I was
saying? No, not fully. And the 1st Few days
days were weird. It was so unnaturnal
However, I was beginning to feel a shift.
With The Holy Spirit leading, i began to
notice the difference. My talk, my thoughts
And my perspective started to change. The
Main thing is to Seek The Lord. Seek Him
dillgently! We must know WHO we are in
Christ. If you will purpose in your heart to
seek Him, He will show you amazing things!
And Brandon, no one would be better if you
We’re not born!! STOP! You are believing
the devils lies!!! Like Bro Jack said, don’t
Fall off the chair. NOW is the time to get
with it. And like Jack, would love to hear from
You! I’m praying for you, Brandon!

Hello, Jack and everybody. I thought I would share with y’all that I am crazy about God. Now every time I pray and have intimacy with Him my heart melts and tears almost form. I tell Him how awesome He is and how much I adore Him. Not just His blessings but Him as a person. I love every one of His attributes. Even His holiness, justice, and righteousness. I want to start writing Psalms to Him but I’m not talented.

Reply

Jack Wellman April 26, 2013 at 12:08 pm

Brandon….you actually just wrote a Psalm in my opinion. A “Psalm” is strictly speaking, a song and a song is a praise-work written specifically to God about His glorious attributes, like the ones you mentioned…His holiness, justice, and righteousness. Good work. God will inspire you and He provides the talent by His Holy Spirit.

This morning I was thinking about the Lord and I asked to see His glory. Not a minute later I begin weeping uncontrollably about the Lord and the lost. Some family members, Boston Marathon bombers, and the worst dictators. I don’t know what was happening to me. I cried for twenty minutes.

Jack Wellman April 30, 2013 at 10:17 am

Brandon…this is so good my friend that you wept for those who are perishing. Remember when Jesus beheld Jerusalem with all the lost sheep? He wept. Your weeping shows me the compassion you have for those and perhaps God has put in your heart the desire to rescue the perishing.

Reply

Brandon April 30, 2013 at 10:31 am

Jack,
He has. The Holy Spirit came upon me hard. I asked to see His glory and part of that is His heart towards sinners. Later on I felt a warmth and peace run through me and all I could do is lift my hands and praise Him with a radiant smile. I sang a praise song to Him. I’m madly in love with the Lord. All I seek is His face/person.

Jack,
In revelations 5:1-10. Jesus took seven things. I know that one of them is Power, but what’s the remaining Six? Help me out, please. Thanks

Thank you Jasmine for your question, which is a good one. After reading Revelation 5:1-10 it seems that the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, is the only One Worthy to open the scrolls. These scrolls appear to contain the judgments of the lost during what may be the Tribulation period.

The scroll in Daniel 12 appears to be the same scroll that is in view in the book of Revelation chapter 5. The idea of sealing and opening books in connection with end-time happenings is found in the OT only in Daniel 12 and 7. Interestingly, there is writing inside and on the back: This means that this scroll is unusual. It wasn’t common practice to write on both sides of the scroll. This means that whatever the information on this scroll, there is a lot of it – almost more than the scroll can contain.

Some think the scroll is the Old Testament, or the Old and New Testaments together, or fulfilled prophecy. But these ideas look back, not forward, and John is speaks of things related to things which must take place after this (Revelation 4:1). Additionally, if the scroll is the Old or New Testament, who is unworthy to open that scroll?

Some think the scroll is God’s claim of divorce against Israel, but there is little Scriptural evidence for this idea, and who is unworthy to open that scroll?

Others believe the scroll is God’s sentence against the enemies of the church. Perhaps this is true, but only in an indirect sense; but who is unworthy to open that scroll?

Truly I can not say and maybe God keeps this secret until Jesus is ready to return to judge the earth because whatever is on this scroll, no one except Jesus is worthy to open it (Revelation 5:3-4). I surely don’t. Perhaps as it unfolds we will know.

The spirit communicates with God. Not the soul, not the body.. But they are some things the Soul [flesh] craves for. (Galatians 5:15-21) [The works of the flesh] which has to stop in order for the spirit to be able to communicate wit God . So, i want you to please list out the works of the spirit.

Thank you Jasmine. The Spirit always glorifies Jesus Christ. Now, for the works of the Spirit, I assume you mean the fruits (or results that the Spirit shows). These are listed in Galatians 5:22-23:

“love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”

Is this what you mean Jasmine? Thank you for your question.

Hi Jack,

I just wanted to say that all my life I have suffered a sickness Epilepsy and have been a strong believer of Christ but no amount of my faith has helped me. No medication or surgery has helped. There have been many tragedies, problems and sufferings I’ve been through and I’m just longing for the coming of Christ. Why did none of my prayers or faith work while I’m living on this earth?

Reply

Jack Wellman May 26, 2013 at 8:19 pm

Hello Sarah. I am so very sorry for your lifelong suffering. I know that the Father told Jesus three times “No” to have “This cup pass from me” of Calvary. Three times God said “NO!” to Paul who was suffering with His thorn in the flesh. Job lost all of his family, all of crops, all his livestock, his home, his wealth, his …everything! Yet God never did tell Job why he did this even though the Bible says that he was blameless.

Paul wrote “Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea.” Further in 2 Cor 11 “I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. 24Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. 25Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was pelted with stones, three times I was shipwrecked, I spent a night and a day in the open sea, 26I have been constantly on the move. I have been in danger from rivers, in danger from bandits, in danger from my fellow Jews, in danger from Gentiles; in danger in the city, in danger in the country, in danger at sea; and in danger from false believers. 27I have labored and toiled and have often gone without sleep; I have known hunger and thirst and have often gone without food; I have been cold and naked.” yet God removed none of these terrible sufferings and next to Jesus and perhaps more than Job, Paul suffered so much.

God does understand our anger our frustration our desperation for sure. Who endured more than Christ (Isaiah 52, 53)? NO one. The Bible never promises happiness in this life but eternal joy in the next. We must trust God even though in this life we won’t have an answer but that He knows best for how much more does the Potter know that the clay vessel? Make sense? I pray it does.

Good day, I wanna thank our heavenly father for giving us people like u. We might leave in different world but technology make it possible and thank GOD for that. I have a leave-in boyfriend that i love and i want both of us to be safe and to go to heaven. Its really difficult to convince him to give his life to GOD, he is a God fearing man but he did not give his life to God and neither did i. I m a prayerful woman and would like to give my life to God. My boyfriend currently lost his job and i do not want to leave now especilally in the situation his in now and on the other hand i want to give my life to God and follow him. I dont want to fornicate, i really want us to get married but with the financial situation his in its not possible. what must i do?

Jack Wellman July 24, 2013 at 10:56 am

Aline, thank you for your question. Let me tell you that you must leave this live-in situation with your boyfriend and do it immediately, even if you have to live on the street. Are you telling me that you are more worried about your financial situations that you are about obeying God?

Please, leave this fornication because no fornicator or sexually immoral person will ever inherit the kingdom of God. Read 1 John chapter 3 and you will see that you nor your boyfriend are living a Christian life and may be lying and deceiving yourself. No born again believer continues to sin and live in sin. Be warned. Get out today!

Gracious. July 24, 2013 at 11:29 am

Aline, it sounds so difficult as it may seem you are leaving him because he is jobless. But when it comes to salvation, as Pastor Jack’s article stipulates, related to the Scriptures, what is important is salvation, compared to the cares of this life.
I understand you love him, but what will that love mean if both of you end up in hell.
Salvation is an individual’s acceptance of GOD’s Grace, through the mouth confession of the Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2v1-9.
If you carefully read John 3v16, we read a section where it says; ”………That whosoever believes in Him, SHOULD NOT PERISH but have everlasting life.”
A very important part that tells us how important an individual’s acceptance of Christ is.
In Luke 15v7, the Lord Jesus says; ”……I say unto you,that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety-nine just persons which need no repentance.”
So,he from this you can see how important it is for you to be born again or to say receive the Lord Jesus as your Lord and Savior.
I want to thank you for the passion that you have over your boyfriend. Its just unfortunate that he can’t be convinced.
But I would like to say, be the first and show him what it means to receive and walk with Christ. That’s what will make him make a decision of either staying or not. Show him the way. God wants you as an individual and him as an individual too.
Pastor Jack will shade more light here. Thanks.

Reply

Jack Wellman July 24, 2013 at 12:27 pm

Amen Gracious. You are so right. God wants us to set our affections on Him and obedience to Him shows Him that we belong to Christ. Disobedience creates doubts in our salvation and if we choose to sin what we do is to choose to suffer. God will not ever compromise with sin and God will not leave unpunished those who are committing fornication and/or sexual immorality. God is not mocked…we will reap what we sow.

Thank you Pastor Jack. We were writing almost at the same time.

God bless you man of God.
Aline, live the man today. Be saved because this is the best time for you.

There is an old saying that is a summary of the 26 verses of Isaiah Chapter 3. Reading it clearly shows that it is a perfect prophetic portrayal of the 21st century and of prominent world figures such as Barrack Obama and David Cameron – along with many of the presently powerful socio-political movements in the west which strongly influence them such as radical feminism and gay rights.

“When the power of Satan is at its height, your leaders shall have the minds of children and women shall control them”.

This is not a message of misogyny, but a warning to all human beings of the sin of women seeking power and influence in the world alongside and above men, which is biblically forbidden and separates women from their proper role as defined by God. It is not condemnatory of women who rightly accept this truth. But it is a stern warning to the women who seek political and judicial power – AND to the men who encourage them to do so.

Jack,
I am in a stage where all my life’s desire is to have more of the Lord and to serve Him. I am never content. I am always craving prayer time and worship. And I love reading His Word. I even get emotional looking at my prayer closet and get irritable. I seek more of Him. Me and my wife, Sharai are serving in our church for 2014. I will be on the ministry prayer partner and email intercessor teams. Prayer is my passion. I just need some advice on how to control my spiritual discontent. Also, I doubt my salvation and sometimes fear I am a false convert. When I repented and turned to Christ for forgiveness the change wasn’t immediate. It probably took a couple of weeks. I get concerned Jack.

Thank you Brandon for your comment. Many of us at times doubt our salvation but to doubt is to show that you care about being saved and is actually sound evidence of your being saved. When we repent, it takes all of our life to change and it does happen but even Paul struggled with this after conversion (read Romans 7). Don’t lose heart. We all stumble and fall but God promises this in 1 John 1:9 that “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” That’s it. Repent, ask for forgiveness, and you’re forgiven. You just have to trust Him at His Word and God cannot lie. You say you need “some advice on how to control my spiritual discontent.’ Here it is. Read the Book of Philippians and see how that we all live in one of two tents: discon”tent” or con”tent”ment so you can choose your own tent. Read Philippians and see how much we have to be joyful over. A false convert doesn’t care if they sin or not thinking they’re good to go… but once we are forgiven, then we are justified in God’s sight (2 Cor 5:21). Read Romans 8 too to see just how secure the believer is and also Ephesians chapter 1 & 2. Get into the Word and the Word will give you comfort and peace of mind Brandon.

Jack, I was saying my spiritual discontent is me never being content in my walk with Christ. I am always hungering and thirsting for my First Love and serving Him more.
Blessings,
Brandon

Brandon, my apologies. I see what you are saying now. I believe that instead of being spiritually discontented, perhaps it is the fact (and this happens to me) the more I grow to know God the more Holy I see He is and just how unholy and wretched that I am. I still believe that you and Paul have much in common and that is why I recommend Romans chapter 7 because you can read Paul’s frustration with himself in that he sees himself falling miserably short in his walk with Christ but that to me, is actually good because it is clear evidence that you have the Holy Spirit working in you strongly to have that passionate desire to grow in His grace and knowledge. Try to see that as a good thing instead of feeling like you are not walking with Him (who is, really!?) well enough. As the under-shepherd of the church I pastor, I would love to have men like you who have such a hunger and thirst like a panting deer in the desert wilderness. I don’t see this enough as it is so take heart. The Laodicean church is neither cold nor hot but I see you as nothing like being lukewarm so you are showing me that you have not lost that first love because the church at Laodicea had lost it and was lukewarm…which means they had one foot in the world and one foot in the church. I hope I was more specific this time Brandon.

No reason to apologize at all Jack! My grammar is poor so sometimes I don’t convey my message the right way. You are a blessing to the Body of Christ. Keep preaching the uncompromised Gospel and Word of God. I know you are reaching MANY for Christ. Me and Sharai will be serving in our church 2014. I will be doing ministry prayer partner and email intercessor. I am so nervous and excited! All for His Glory. Prayer is my passion as I am head over heels in love with the Lord. God bless you and may EVERYTHING lift up the mighty name of Jesus Christ and give Him all the Glory!

Hello Brandon.
I see you are a man who binds threads together.
Can you see me related on any specific characteristic after reading what I have to share with you?
- I feel it’s very neccesary to have people really feel comforted by my pressence. In this way, they feel love into their hearts, that they feel comfortable with themselves and their abilities, so they can further evolve by themselves.
- I put on great weight on people, any people who seeks freedom and safety, and will help them out, as much as I can.
- I am often in doubt about what I should do myself.
When i’m not replied by these people I help my best, I feel lonely and sad.
But as times go, I learn fast and realize that some people must have a taste of pain, to learn appriciate the small and great things I do for the most people who ask me for help.
- Other people who seeks my help, simply tells me how they feel and what they’ve been throug.
Bassicly I tell them a story and give them faith in themselves, that they’ve got a reason to trust and believe in themselves and keep carry on these burdens they walk around with.
- When I stand in the situation myself, I just have to speak to some one I hold and love deeply in my heart, to suddenly feel flying and fit for passing another obstacle in life.
I’ve been fighting since I was a little little boy, just until to a couple of years ago from today, between these times.
I’ve got so mad at others for they wouldn’t listen to my opinion, or wouldn’t try to understand where they’re going, with the way they have chosed in their path of life.
- Friends of mine told me to be all knowing, but I had to reply I didn’t know everything, and long from.
But everytime they had a question, I would answer them, and give them the answer they’ve been seeking.
- Can you give me an advice how to improve my way of being?
- Ohh by the way, I realized i’m supposed to be a guardian for many while writing this text.
Thanks for let me share this with you, best regards.
