Misler said that:

We are to look for an imminent return: Phil 3:20; Titus 2:13; Heb 9:28; 1 Thess 1:10; 4:18; 5:6; Rev 22:20.

Philippians 3:20 For our citizenship is in heaven, from which also we eagerly wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ;

Obviously our understanding is to include an expectation of the Second Coming. Nothing contained in this verse makes this coming an imminent event. Even our place in heaven after our resurrection must await other events. The millennial kingdom has us on earth. Even the new Jerusalem comes down to earth, where we will reside. “Thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth…”. Eternity is a long time. But even Israel’s king David expects to have his dwelling one day “in the house of the Lord forever”. That is likely heaven. So heaven is a believers promise for both Jew and Gentile included in Israel’s New Jerusalem; in her Olive Tree; all will be in Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:21 For since by a man death [came,] by a man also [came] the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 23 But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ’s at His coming, (NASB2020)

Titus 2:13 looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus,

I’m certain that this is an attitude that we should have, but both Peter an Paul realized that even believers as Jesus explained would not be awake as time and false teaching ensued, even believers were in danger of growing weary as Jesus described with the coming of the bridegroom.

Hebrews 9:28 so Christ also, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time for salvation without reference to sin, to those who eagerly await Him.

Though men may not have been eagerly awaiting Him 20 years ago, or even 2000 years ago; yet, today that may be changing as we see signs occurring within the condition of men and governments to align with Scripture. But even if most are not yet eagerly awaiting, they certainly will be once tribulation has reawakened His body (us) to the nearness of His coming.

1 Thessalonians 1:10 and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, that is Jesus, who rescues us from the wrath to come.

We are never promised to escape Tribulation but only the wrath that all men will experience who are without Christ. You should already know what that is. It can in fact only be one thing considering the fact that all men apart from Christ are to experience this particular wrath.

1 Thessalonians 4:18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.

In fact, it would seem that we would not need comfort in these words if there were not conditions in our lives that bring us need of comfort. Who do we comfort in our everyday contacts? It is not those who need no comfort. The persecuted church is today most comforted by these words.

1 Thessalonians 5:1-2, 4, 6 Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober.

There is no darkness nor is there sleepiness for those filled with the Holy Spirit as it concerns Jesus coming. For those who are not led by His Spirit they do not know what is happening.

Revelation 22:20 He who testifies to these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Yes, quickly as the lightening is from the East to the west. But as Jesus stated: “no man knows the day or the hour…”
