How can we know when Jesus will return and the Kingdom of God established
The answer to this depends upon matching the current events in the world with the prophecies in the Bible; which is difficult to do.
If we look at Jesus’ prophecy concerning the Jews and Jerusalem:
Luke 21:24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.
In 1948 Israel became a nation again in her own land. In 1967 Israel captured Jerusalem. In 1980 Jerusalem became the Capital of Israel.
This does not of itself constitute the end of the treading down of Jerusalem by the Gentiles (non-Jews) for according to other prophets there is to be a final invasion and capture of Jerusalem before Christ returns to deliver Israel.

Learn about God our Father and how we can become His children.
“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth”(Genesis 1:1).
With these few short words the Bible introduces us to God. We learn that the God of the Bible is Creator — maker of heaven and earth, the giver of life, the giver of good. But the Bible shows us that God is much more than a creator. He is our heavenly Father.
God wants us to be His children. God wants to be our heavenly Father. In fact, this is one of the most powerful messages in the Bible. God is willing to make us part of His special family, but that does not happen automatically. We must enter His family in the special way He has prescribed. That way is summed up in these words:
“Yet to all who received Jesus, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.”(John 1:12-13).

This morning at the Memorial Meeting we considered the powerful lesson of humility, bravery, courage and faith in the living God.
We did this via lessons from
- some of the “little people” (daughters of Zelophehad, the little maid of Naman, and Mary) who showed bravery and courage wrapped up in Godly faith
- two “big people” (Joseph of Arimathaea and Nicodemus) who gave up their positions of power and status to provide a resting place for the body of #Jesus to fulfil Ps16v10.
