Would Jesus Ever Postpone the 2nd Coming?

Do you think that Jesus would ever postpone the 2nd Coming? In the OT, we find the prophets praying all of the time for God's return and especially, God's impending judgment. Occasionally, they believe that indeed, God did postpone or delay His coming and judgment? Today, we live in a world that is so militaristic. One nation wants to war against another and wipe them off the face of the earth. But what if, instead of warring, we prayed for the salvation of one another (like the prophets did)? What if people stopped praying (like Mr. Hagee and McCain) for the quick judgment of the Middle East but for the salvation of Muslims, for instance? What if we asked God to delay His judgment and postpone His coming? Do you think He'd listen and do that?


  1. I think the 2nd coming would be postponed. A verse or two seems to suggestion that in the NT when it talks about God being patient with us. I don't know if our prayers could hold it back but I don't think it was necessarily settled so that it couldn't be delayed.


  2. Interesting take. I was wondering if anyone would answer this in the affirmative.
