You may believe in the doctrine of the Second Coming, but I want to look for the evidence in your life. Bible teacher Derek Prince speaks about the the second requirement in 2 Peter 3:11-12: hastening the day of God's coming. He explains to us that we can hasten Jesus' Second Coming by doing three important things: 1) proclaiming the Gospel to all nations 2) purifying ourselves 3) our righteous deeds. However, if we don't do these things we might delay His Coming.
In Matthew 24:14 Jesus tells us that His Second Coming will come to be when the Gospel of The Kingdom is proclaimed to all nations. We are responsible for proclaiming this Gospel to the world. That means we can hasten God's Coming by proclaiming this message, but it also means that we can delay His coming by being disobedient to Jesus' Great Commission.
The New Testament compares the Church to a bride who has to make herself ready for her groom. This means we need to purify ourselves and be obedient to Scripture. Our Groom made us righteous by dying for us (His bride). Now we need to translate this 'imputed righteousness' into 'outworked righteousness.' One of the ways to do this is by denying ungodliness (Titus 2: 11-13).
