Imminence

Lift Up Your Heads!

28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

 Luke 21:28.

Signs of the Times 

Years of time have come and gone
Since I first heard it told
How Jesus would come again some day
If back then it seemed so real
Then I just can’t help but feel
How much closer His coming is today

Signs of the times are everywhere
There’s a brand new feeling in the air
Keep your eyes upon the eastern sky
Lift up your head redemption draweth nigh

Wars and strife on every hand
And violence fills the land
Still some people doubt He’ll ever come again
But the Word of God is true
He’ll redeem His chosen few
Don’t lose hope soon Christ Jesus will descend

Signs of the times are everywhere
There’s a brand new feeling in the air
Keep your eyes upon the eastern sky
Lift up your head redemption draweth nigh

Lift up your head redemption draweth nigh

In Context

25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 Men will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”

No One Knows the Day!

36 “No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 

Matthew 24:36

42 “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. (Matthew 24)

A “Knowing” Imminence, and a verse about the Day of the Lord

Here, Jesus allows for “imminence”—a sense that something is near to happen, within in the context of knowing generally when an event will take place. He has shared with them that when they see standing in the Holy Place the Abomination of Desolation…a time of trouble will take place…then will be the coming of the Son of Man.
