By now all of us have heard the devastation, Hurricane Sandy brought to several states. My own family lives near to a few of the disaster areas. I found myself that night, praying until three in the morning, that Lord Jesus Christ keep everyone safe. But Christ has warned all of us that perilous times such as these would become more and more frequent.
Luke 21:25 “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.”
It should come to no surprise to us, believers in the complete Word of God, that Jesus speaks the truth. It should also not be seen as a coincidence that a hurricane which caused major destruction, an earthquake in British Columbia, and a tsunami warning in Hawaii occurred within hours, if not one or two days of each other.
Luke 21: 26 People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken.
And yet, people still scoff and shrug this away as a result of “mother nature,” instead of realizing that Jesus is the Only One that can Save. They’d rather believe in such nonsense, then repent.
2 Peter 3:3-4 “Knowing this first of all, that scoffers will come in the last days with scoffing, following their own sinful desires. They will say, “Where is the promise of his coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all things are continuing as they were from the beginning of creation.”
Jesus is telling us right now he is near! Besides the weather, there have been an increase of murders, lawlessness, people with no regard for lives, or the crimes they commit. Now is not the time to close your eyes and take it easy. Now is the time to pick up the Word of God.
Matthew 24:37-39 For as were the days of Noah, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day when Noah entered the ark, and they were unaware until the flood came and swept them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.
Jesus told us no one knows, but God as to when Our King Comes. But we must be prepared, spiritually at all times. There is no excuse! Our King has given us everything we need to ready.
Matthew 24:36 “But concerning that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father only.”
Matthew 24:42 Therefore, stay awake, for you do not know on what day your Lord is coming.
