Why do present-day Christians still believe that the second coming of Jesus and that the end of the world will take place sometime soon? At no time did Jesus say or suggest that these events would happen at any time other than within the lives of the generation who were living on the earth at that time. The answer may be found within the words Jesus is supposed to have said according to: Matthew 24:15-16 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place,(whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: These words again were directed entirely at the people of that generation and in particular those living in Judea.

Revelation 1:1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified [it] by his angel unto his servant John. Revelation 1:4 John to the seven churches which are in Asia: Grace be unto you, and peace, from him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before his throne; Now if we consider this prophecy exactly as it was directed ‘To the Seven Churches of Asia’ namely: Ephesus, Smyrna, Pergamum, Thyatira, Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea, this was, in fact, a strong admonishment to each of those churches as they had departed from the faith in some form or another and were in great sin.
