I have a particular verse in mind that I can't seem to remember. The gist is: 'Jesus has not yet returned for the sake of those who have yet to be added to his kingdom...'

It's something along those lines; if anyone knows what I am referencing I'd greatly appreciate a verse reference.

Thank you!

  • Maybe Revelation 6:11?

  • Matt 24:22 was my guess as well. Commented Jun 3, 2016 at 3:18

I believe these are the two main candidates for what you are after:

And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. - Matthew 24:14 NIV

The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance. - 2 Peter 3:9 NIV

  • Yes, thank you! I was looking for the 2 Peter verse. It seems I was confounding different verses, but nonetheless - thank you!
