“Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Matthew 24: 40-44
The Bible tells us clearly “that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts, And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” 2 Peter 3: 3-4. Knowledge of the imminent coming of the Lord Jesus is ludicrous to people who have no fear of God. However among the vast majority of unbelievers there will be a soul here and a soul there that will feel uneasy about the reality of the coming of the Lord Jesus. Perhaps you are one of them.
Indeed this news is meant to make an unprepared person not only feel uneasy but fearful! If the Lord Jesus was to come today and you are still in your sins, in an unforgiven state, would you be ready or would you would be among those poor folks who would be ‘left behind’ for the judgement of God.
Many people have come to a realization of their need as a lost sinner and sought earnestly after the Saviour for forgiveness and cleansing as a result of hearing about the fact that He is coming again.
He who came the first time to die as a substitute for sinners is very much alive today and waits patiently for people like you to repent and trust Him fully. The most important thing is not to delay.
The Bible doesn’t tell us when this event is going to happen. Nobody knows, not even the Lord Jesus Himself! But when the time comes, at the command of God the Father, He will come and without delay to take all those who have trusted in Him to be with Himself forever. This remarkable and much longed for event could take place perhaps today and your time may be running out.
Make sure you are not left behind.
