Good words of Godly wisdom, in my opinion, Tabitha. Jesus said when we see certain things begin to happen to look up...keep our eyes on Him.
And I'm not sure it really matters too much when Jesus is coming back because He is coming for each one of us at the end of one's life anyhow, for saint or sinner alike, and nobody knows when that will be....everyone needs to be ready for Him either way, whether alive at the end of the world or passed on. It changes absolutely nothing about anything that the bible teaches and instructs and admonishes and warns about...its' all exactly the same for the relatively few believers who will be alive at His return as it is for the overwhelming vast majority who will have died before then down through the centuries up to the present day. The blessed hope is the same for us all, alive or dead on that day.
In fact Paul even seems to downplay those who will be 'alive and remain' a little bit, saying they will not prevent those who have previously fallen asleep, so while the return of Christ is something good to know of course, I don't think it is something we need to focus on or emphasize. Jesus said, it is not for you to know the times and seasons set by the Father, but you shall receive power and be witnesses to me to the ends of the earth.. We just need to focus on the job at hand regardless, and our sanctification, and occupy until He comes, whenever that will be.
It is not so much about when and how we get to heaven, but that we make it. It is about being ready at all times.
