RIGHT TIME(:12a)

—Explanation:(:12a) Timeliness

“And the day began to decline, & the twelve came & said to Him, “Send the multitude away, that they may go into the surrounding villages & countryside & find lodging & get something to eat; for here we are in a desolate place.”

“Day began to decline”—Day’s End—11th hour

—Argumentation:

2Pet. 3:9—“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.”

2Cor. 7:9-10—“I now rejoice, not that you were made sorrowful, but that you were made sorrowful to the point of repentance; for you were made sorrowful according to the will of God, in order that you might not suffer loss in anything through us. For the sorrow that is according to the will of God produces a repentance without regret, leading to salvation; but the sorrow of the world produces death. For behold what earnestness this very thing, this godly sorrow, has produced in you: what vindication of yourselves, what indignation, what fear, what longing, what zeal, what avenging of wrong! In everything you demonstrated yourselves to be innocent in the matter.”

Isa. 55:1-7—“Ho! Every one who thirsts, come to the waters; And you who have no money come, buy & eat. Come, buy wine & milk Without money & without cost. “Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, & eat what is good, And delight yourself in abundance. “Incline your ear & come to Me. Listen, that you may live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you, According to the faithful mercies shown to David. “Behold, I have made him a witness to the peoples, A leader & commander for the peoples. “Behold, you will call a nation you do not know, And a nation which knows you not will run to you, Because of the LORD your God, even the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” Seek the LORD while He may be found; Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way, And the unrighteous man his thoughts; And let him return to the LORD, And He will have compassion on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.”

And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross.”

1Jn. 4:11-12—“Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has beheld God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, & His love is perfected in us.”
