KEY SCRIPTURE: Matthew 24:14. ” And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come “.
Why would the LORD come back to this earth to take us unto Himself? The coming of the Lord is to wipe the earth of the evil and wickedness and reward the just and upright. In the days of Noah, God judged the earth with the flood because of sin. Genesis 6:5. “And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually”. The Lord commissioned Noah to build the Ark, for all those who would respond to his call to forsake sin and believe in God’s righteous ways. The Bible said they did not believe him. Matthew 24:38. “For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark”,
Sin and rebellion against God keep abounding. His coming will end the lease period that men have upon the earth. Acts 17:31. “Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead”. Everyone must consider his or her life in the light of the coming judgement. Events unfolding in this world show that the coming of the Lord is at the door. Our key scripture says, this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all nations, then shall the end come. Through the Internet the gospel is going very far and very fast. Places where there were iron bars to the gospel is opening up.
How ready are you? What part are you playing to spread the message and also witness with your life to those who relate directly to you? Would you join those who would escape? The ark was the only escape. Jesus is the present ark. Come to Him in humility before it is forever shut to you. Two things would eternally shut Christ from you;
1.When you die.
2. When Jesus appears.
The Lord said no one knows the hour when He shall come.
Matthew 24:42.”Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come.”
Dear one, don’t be deceived by anyone. Jesus came for the first time; HE would surely fulfill His promise of coming again.
THOUGHT: GOD JUDGED THE WORLD IN NOAH’S TIME, HE WILL DO SO IN CHRIST RETURN.
2 Peter 2:5.”And spared not the old world, but saved Noah the eighth person, a preacher of righteousness, bringing in the flood upon the world of the ungodly;”
Luke 17:26. “And as it was in the days of Noe, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man.
