Is it nigh already!?

Just what does nigh mean, anyway? 2,000 years? As reliable as ever, James 5:8 says, “Be ye also patient; stablish your hearts: for the coming of the Lord draweth nigh.”

  1. “Nigh”, as far as I know, is an archaic term for “near.” As for how long it is, I doubt anyone knows. I believe Jesus said not to waste time predicting his return in the Bible, but I do not recall the passage. It should be noted, however, that “prophets” have been predicting the exact date of his return for at least a millenium. In older times, entire communities have given up everything they owned on earth in anticipation for Jesus’ return only to return the next day completely destitute.
