    I am come that you might have life and that you might have it more abundantly. You should be in perfect peace, if your mind is stayed on him. You should not be desiring death or any end.....for in Christ you pass from death to life. Never to die again....

    Who said he is coming soon? The people who are telling you that know nothing.

    It’s very human for you to feel that way, especially that you just became a follower of Christ. I at one point of my life I was scared I wasn’t ready and I didn’t want Jesus to come yet because I wasn’t ready. Earthly desires, Some of my family wasn’t right with God.
    At this point of my life (our life) we still struggle is part of life. We can conquer all through Christ. The main key to understand everything is (Prayer) read the Bible.
    What helped me from thinking that way (God Please not today) was submitting myself to God, praying, worshiping, reading the Bible. Pray for wisdom, wisdom to understand his word, wisdom to see life the way He does,,so that God can enlighten you and you’ll be able to understand better.
    God knows your heart ❤️ he knows your needs, proclaim your victory. Faith is key to everything, have faith that God will bring your father back. Pray that God may give him a new heart.
    Everything is possible through Jesus, as long as you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can tell that mountain to move and it’ll move. (Matthew 17:20) stay connected to God. He never fails us, it might take some time but remember to keep your faith trust God.
    My family is getting closer to God little by little, and they never served God. Why? How? By Prayer, faith! All Glory to God !! I ll keep you in prayer, & I have faith that your train of thought will change & your father will start following Jesus again. By you going to church serving God little by little God will reveal his glory and minister to you father through you !! Keep fighting that good fight ! God bless you! Stay strong !

    based on the bible
    he said he will not come not til all things that is needed to be done be done well he loves us all and there are still people who needs help so if they somewhat died i don't know where they would be and i am one of them

    you see no religion is perfect you would see flaws from time to time therefore no creature is perfect because of this free will because of this free will adam and eve was banished they were cursed and we are here because of this free will qwq we do bad things we think of bad things

    yeah they are right when you feel that you still don't want this world to end yet it's because you are enjoying your life here you love your life unlike me i hate my life that feeling that i just wished that ww3 be started right away i just want to end this world so badly because i am not enjoying this life the world hates me everyone dislikes me

    anyway based on the bible yeah i think you are wrong there are also people that are written there made the same as you did they wished that christ will not return yet you and i are one of those people it is wrong but it was right since all of us are right in our own eyes and since the bible says it was wrong nonetheless we wished it we did it because of Free Will

    Good point.
    Sometimes we find ourselves a little selfish.
    Once again I come to a point of repentance.

    Perhaps one could be needing some self improvement...in the way of holy living, or perhaps you'd like to finish a task you are working on for the Lord...good reasons to want time. But, perhaps one's head isn't in the right direction yet and just want to indulge in more worldly fun and whatnot...that's just immaturity and yes, a type of wrong.

    :) Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them.

    Now its clear you love the Father. But what you dont understand is.. this world is like looking through a muddy glass. Now drop that glass and THATS what your Father made for you. He has so much for you.. you will EXP LOAD.. really.. with JOY!

    For me one of those reasons is chocolate was invented by men using machines (cocoa beans are not even sweet right off hte tree), so in a world with only nature, I can't eat my favorite food anymore. I never say chocolate is more important than my Bible, of course, and I understand food addictions will disappear the day Jesus returns. But I cna't imagine my life being perfect without food that is made in a factory.

    You and a million others of us. :)

    As I understand it there will be no need for food in heaven, however we may still be able to eat and if that is so, i have little doubt chocolate will be there.

    It is said Jesus will give us a big mansion with all of the things we want in heaven. If true, I can still eat a ton of sweet stuff while soaking in the beauty o;f ornate designs, flowers, and waterfalls in the gardens. I will be elated to get all of these things in heaven but someone needs to come down from there to confirm this is the heaven we look forward too, not just white clouds, angels, spirits, and the Lord Himself.

    Form what I gather it'll be much more than clouds and such. I can't pinpoint it now, maybe someone else will, but as I recall, we won't believe how good things are there. I mean if there isn't food, sex, TV, whatever we enjoyed here, there will we something 100 times better. Things of which we had no idea existed.

    It's a matter of enjoying the good things of creation that are here for us. We reject the powers and principalities that rule in wickedness, spiritual, sensual and physical. The world system is ruled by Satan, the prince of the power of the air found in scripture. I enjoy creation, I love God, love my neighbor, wife , kids and I reject the world system.

    The earth is good, the world is not, they are two different things. there are many magnificent good things on the earth that are very wholesome to enjoy, so yes, you can like the ground and then some, animals, plants, rivers, mountains, all of natures wonders. They are why camping, hiking ans such are so popular, and all those things are not the world.

    The earth is a physical place where we live, our home for now, while the term "world", as it is used in the bible, is a way of life for those who don't have God. The two terms are easily confused, especially if we look them up in the dictionary, some definitions show earth/world to be the same thing.

    Again, the bible always uses the term world as I mentioned, and as in "worldly" meaning we are of the world, meaning we like what is ungodly or the things of the world, all the fun sin such as sleeping around, drugs, bars, clubs...things that are considered evil by those not of the world. We have to live around, and work in the world, but we don't have to be of the world.

    More input on this from others might be helpful.

    I think the main question of the OP : is it wrong for a Christian to not want the Lord to come back yet? I believe that every Christian struggles with fleshly desires versus spiritual desires.We have to walk daily in the Spirit and have trust and faith in our Lord Jesus Christ. This can be difficult if you are wanting what the world offers instead of what Christ offers. We all should try to have the attitude of" occupy until He comes" like the scripture says. This subject is not a salvation issue. Just because one is happy or content with life doesn't mean you are not saved. It is where your heart is. Trusting and having faith that Christ died for our sins and believing this in your heart is the salvation issue. One must pray for spiritual desires and not earthy desires. This can be difficult at times because the enemy can pull at us and also we live in a fallen world. Remember to trust in Christ.

    It depends on one's heart. If one hates the wicked so much, then it might be selfish to think that way.

    But if one thinks for the sake of the "greater good" then it's a good thing to desire for Christ's return.

    This world is corrupted by sin, thus, no longer working according to God's original design. Even animals eating each other. Us humans, eating meat. This wasn't the original plan in Genesis.

    There is no reason to desire the corruption brought upon our world.
