Today's readings point to the importance of being aware of promise of the day of judgement.
First a commnand for all people to repent in Acts 17:22-31,
While God has overlooked the times of human ignorance, now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will have the world judged in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed, and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.’Next the words of Jesus promise us the Spirit of truth who will be with us for ever and the promise that Jesus is coming.
‘If you love me, you will keep my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you for ever. This is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, because he abides with you, and he will be in you.Thomas Tallis set it to music so well (using the KJV "Comforter" in place of "Advocate"),
‘I will not leave you orphaned; I am coming to you. In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you. They who have my commandments and keep them are those who love me; and those who love me will be loved by my Father, and I will love them and reveal myself to them.’
I get the sense that when that Comforter and/or Advocate is really present in one's life, that one tends to not get too obsessive over the coming day of judgement.
Still, for those who remain in the world and have not received Him, the prediction of an impending judgment might make them want them to reconsider their position, in which case maybe a little time spent obsessing over these verses would be time well spent.
