Isaiah 51:5

My righteousness draws near speedily, my salvation is on the way, and my arm will bring justice to the nations. The islands will look to me and wait in hope for my arm.

This verse clearly says, “salvation is on the way”, yet it was hundreds of years after this before Jesus came, bringing the Good News of eternal salvation. We shouldn’t be surprised, then, when Jesus said, “the end is near…”, but we have not seen it yet in this generation. Time is not something that restricts God, and in the face of eternity, a few hundred years certainly could be called “near”. Like the islands, we wait in hope.
