Thanks for an interesting topic!
Here are three scriptural quotes which put things into perspective about the never ending wait for the Lord's return
2 Peter 3: "For YOU know this first, that in the last days there will come ridiculers with their ridicule, proceeding according to their own desires and saying: “Where is this promised presence of his? Why, from the day our forefathers fell asleep [in death], all things are continuing exactly as from creation’s beginning.”
The ridiculers and the ridiculed have been dead almost 2,000 years.
John 21:20-23 "Peter turned and saw that the disciple whom Jesus loved was following them. (This was the one who had leaned back against Jesus at the supper and had said, “Lord, who is going to betray you?”) 21 When Peter saw him, he asked, “Lord, what about him?” Jesus answered, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you? You must follow me.” Because of this, the rumor spread among the believers that this disciple would not die. But Jesus did not say that he would not die; he only said, “If I want him to remain alive until I return, what is that to you?”
Jesus' apostle, whom he loved, has been dead almost 2,000 years
Revelation 22:12 says ""Look, I am coming soon! My reward is with me, and I will give to each person according to what they have done."
He never came back. This verse was written almost 2,000 years ago.
