James 5:7-8 Be patient therefore, brethren, unto the coming of the Lord. Behold,
the husbandman waits for the precious fruit of the earth, and has long
patience for it, until he receives the early and latter rain.
Some are of the opinion that when the last person to be saved is converted to Christianity then the Lord will return. This is not the case at all. God is looking for quality, not quantity. The precious fruit God is looking for is His own divine nature in the Church (II Peter 1:1-11). He is not waiting for the last soul to be saved; He is waiting for maturity and purity in the Church.
