The Lord Will Come Again–Is It Time?

“But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, in which the heavens

 will pass away with a roar and the elements will be destroyed with intense heat,

and the earth and its works will be burned up.” (2 Peter 3:10)

 NOTE: The world will end on the day this blog is posted. It has been predicted by a man. The times are said to be right to justify this prediction with earthquakes occurring around the world, nations thrust against nations vying for power and greed, immorality and narcissism increasingly the norm, signs in the sky with the eclipse of the sun, the seas raging against the lands in hurricanes. Surely, the time has arrived for the Lord to come again:

 1 This know, also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. 2 For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,

3 Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 4Traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God . . . (I Timothy 3:1-4)

 25 “There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. 27 At that time they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” (Luke 21: 25-27)

NOTE: You may– or may not– read this post before the end of the world. The Lord could come before the publication of this blog. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.”(1 Thessalonians 5:2) And, yet, He, also, could not come until sometime in the distant future of human time. Jesus clearly states that only God knows when His Son is coming again:

But of that day and hour knoweth no [man], no, not the angels of heaven,

 but my Father only. (Matthew 24:36)

It is dangerous for men to presume to be the predictors of God’s timing. He is God. Our lives are in submission to His plans. We must always be prepared for the Lord’s coming:
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. (Luke 21:25-28)

************************************************

The clock hands move to the clockmaker’s timing,

Winding down when the lifespan wanes,

Stopping when a man-made power source dies,

While the planets move in motion set by the Creator,

Continuing until He speaks the end of time,

The Words of His choosing, of His day and His hour.

***************************************************

Let us watch and pray always. Let us live for Him every moment of time given to us.
