The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9
Often we try to trap God in our time schemes. We lay out plans and schedules, and expect Him to conform. God sent His Son into the world as quickly as the world was prepared to receive Him. When the Father saw that the sacrificial system with its types and shadows had been established, and that the prophetic word pointing to the Messiah had been heard, the world was in readiness for the Messiah, and at the precise moment in accord with His plan, sent Him to us—in “the fullness of time” (Galatians 4:4).
