“First of all you must understand this, that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and indulging their own lusts and saying, ‘Where is the promise of His coming?’….”
It seems to reach that point with each generation. Each year more people leave the church because they feel Christianity is fading more and more into history; because, each year, Jesus Christ does not return and judgement does not come.
Rest assured though, the hour of His coming and judgement is as sure as 8 a.m. this morning, and it is now 9:31 a.m. as I write this.
Jesus Christ is giving us time to turn from our wicked ways and gain more in our love and understanding of Him. For “a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years is like a day in the mind of God.” (2 Peter 3:8) Satan gives us distraction.
He knows that in the eternal timeclock his day of reckoning is near; yet, in our world he reminds us that in our minds a day is 24 hours, a year is 365 days, and Jesus hasn’t come back for the last 2,000 years…but tomorrow we get closer to the inevitable.
What if each day in our minds was like a minute in God’s? As we get older a year seems to go by as if it were only a few months; so what if the last 2,000 years has only felt like a few days to God?
Then you might say His coming and judgement are only “minutes” away. Stay strong. Overcome. We, in Christ, have a lot to look forward to real soon. Don’t get distracted by scoffers.
