    And? He hasn't returned yet.

    just as a tree grows, and the more it grows, the stronger it becomes and the more branches are formed and added to the tree, and as it grows bigger, it spreads out and reaches further each branch producing fruit.
    Which has nothing to do with Christ's return.

    This is as it is for the body of Christ, and as the root grows and goes deeper, the stronger the tree becomes. This is like the church and Christ is the cornerstone and those who truly belong to him, are rooted in him, and produce fruit through him by the power of the Spirit. And his life can be seen in and through those who are truly of his body.
    And? None of this has to do with Christ's return.

    Your entire post is nothing but nice-sounding platitudes, which have little to nothing to do with the subject of the thread, which is Christ's imminent return.

    Would you like to discuss the topic of the thread now?

    Yes, when the Lord Jesus said "I come quickly" He was speaking of His imminent appearance to catch up those in the Body of Christ. And the Apostle John was waiting for that appearance because He expected that he would be caught up just like all of the members of the Body of Christ. Here are John's words in answer to the Lord's words that He will come quickly:

    "He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus"
    (Rev.22:20).

    This proves that the Twelve are members of the Body of Christ.
