II Peter 3:12 says ..looking for and hastening the coming of the day of God...The timing of the Lord's return is directly related to the heart condition and activity of His church. In Matthew 24:13,14 the bible states "and this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all nations and the end will come. Matthew 24 paints the picture of the signs of the time and the end of the age. Religious deception, social & political unrest, natural calamities, disloyalty & persecutions, they are all evidence that we are in the end times, True believers are to persevere & endure in spreading the gospel.The word "endures" in, verse 13 of the chapter, from Strong's concordance, is to hold one's ground in conflict, bear up against adversity, hold out under stress, stand firm. preserve under pressure, wait calmly and courageously. It goes on to state it is not passive resignation to fate and mere patience, but the active, energetic resistance to defeat that allows calm and brave endurance.This paints the picture of how Jesus suffered in fulfilling the will of God.
Acts 3:18-21 says " But those things which God foretold by the mouth of all His prophets, that the Christ would suffer, He has fulfilled. Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that the times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, and He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before, whom heaven must receive until the times of restoration of all things, which God has spoken by the mouth of His holy prophets since the world began. We the believers & followers of Jesus are in the times of the spiritual fulfillment that times of restoration of all things is at hand.
True believers have a repentant heart to bring the times of refreshing to His church and hasten the the coming day of the Lord. II Peter 3:11.12 states..Therefore, since all these things will be dissolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in holy conduct and godliness, looking for and hastening the coming day of God....Acts 3:20.." and that He may send Jesus Christ, who was preached to you before.....
If you are part of God's true army in these end times, preach the true gospel in all your worlds as a witness and hasten His return to heal our land..
