    ... is a reasonable length of time to wait for your Second Comin / Messianic Age / Rapture / Kingdom of G-d / Bailout?

    Baha'i told you it already came.

    Second coming. Shroud proof life sacrificed. Rapture changed brain chemistry Baha'i teaching. It returned via Satan's falling star asteroid wanderer.

    Long count via 1000 years asteroid passing. Not falling in. No data. Holy wanderer. Falling in fake data.

    As Egyptian gravitational force was a caused event attack moved earths mass from origin asteroid wanderer review status.

    Fall. It's why huge ground touching cooling events in America still occur. Remnants of old science.

    Sea shifted. Cities went under water. Ice mass shifted.

    North pole might have snapped froze the pyramid technology in America.

    As father's nation direct land DNA heritage said in Australia we were still ice frozen. Didn't gain a direct father.

    Our heavens memories aren't the same.

    Land bridge freeze allowed north migration to South as aborigine.

    Proof is Australia unfrozen was given egyptians hieroglyphics etched by attack of falling gas burn in its facure mountains. Transmitted caused.

    So north might not have been frozen but gained re freeze.

    Pole shift idea. Caused by the pyramids attack.

    As earth should not shift its held balanced body mass.

    Thesis is first always about earths own natural history isn't a thesis. It's memory.

    Father asked why would humans in a desert think it safe to use heated ground transmitters when clouds mountain temples were used to cool the transmitters?

    Only because human memory had lied to the theist mind advice. Satan terms.

    Be ever watchful!

    The Bible is full of indicators. Here are just a few!
    • The days of the prophetic week
    • The readiness of Israel
    • Nations gathering against lsrael
    • The condition of the world
    • The spread of the Gospel
    • The shaking of the nations - famine, pestilence, disasters, wars.
    • False Messiahs
    For me, the rapture and second coming will be before 2070, a two thousand year period from the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem.

    I'd actually argue that Christianity dealt with this in the first century when many expected Jesus to come back in their lifetime and he didn't; you can see subtil changes in Paul's letters once he's realised he's likely going to die before Jesus returns. He seems to be making provisions for Churches and individuals for the longer term. There's more to this but I would suggest Christianity, not sure about other religions, dealt with this at that time.

    I think the reasonable length is that what is needed to get the number of people that are meant to come in.

    For I don’t desire, brothers, to have you ignorant of this mystery, so that you won’t be wise in your own conceits, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in,
    Romans 11:25

    Here's a gentle reminder from Jesus [Luke 17:26,27]:
    'And as it was in the days of Noe [Noah], so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
    They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.
    Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;
    But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.
    Even so shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.'

    Jesus says, 'the same day that Lot went out of Sodom', which is, I believe, a reference to the rapture. So, maybe the warning, 'Any minute now ...' will be on the tongues of those that have 'eyes to see'!

    Revelation 22:20. 'Surely I come quickly. Amen.'

    Then I wish you a lovely rapture!

    But a friendly tip ─ meanwhile don't hold your breath.

    Same as the last six times. When time is not an issue, the lifespan of the universe is but a moment
