"Has the Lord really delayed His coming......I don't think so.  Keep watching!"

Has the Lord really delayed His coming......I don't think so.  Keep watching!
Jesus said He was coming in an hour that we "think not".  That also means that we won't know exactly when He will return.  And of particular interest is the statement about the evil servant who said in his heart "My Lord delayeth his coming".  Was the evil servant watching for a particulat date, and when it didn't happen figured that the Lord had "delayed" his coming and thus began to fight and eat and drink with the drunken?  It also came to mind that the evil servant might have been watching on a RoshHashana and when the Lord didn't return, he figured he had another year to wait, so he went back to partying and stopped watching.
Then Jesus came at a time when both the evil servant and the faithful servant did not expect
Matthew Chapter 24:
44Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.

 45Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season?

 46Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.

 47Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods.

 48But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming;

 49And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken;

 50The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of,

 51And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
