90 Seconds to Midnight

I was interested to discover a few days ago that according to a number of well renown nuclear scientists we are just a few seconds away from midnight on the ‘Doomsday clock’. Such is the greatness of concern about the demise of the earth and its inhabitants, they are fearing the worst in just a short period of time. 

‘The Doomsday Clock’s time is set by the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists’ Science and Security Board with the support of the Bulletin’s Board of Sponsors, which includes 10 Nobel Laureates. Previously, the Doomsday Clock had been set at 100 seconds to midnight since 2020.’ - Gayle Spinazze from

The antics of the Russian President Mr Putin and his threats of nuclear warfare is a very real threat. Anyone who crosses his pathway or makes his agenda feel threatened he holds everyone to ransom with his ‘nuclear card’! And there is of course the background and fast coming forward perceived threat of ‘Climate Change’, to name only two factors, which has accelerated the feeling of fast approaching ‘doom’.

Appeals have been made to world leaders to attend to these issues while there is yet time before we past the point of no return. However, the last time warnings like this were heralded, the warnings appeared to go unheeded! 

Those of us who observe Bible prophesy are reassured to know that this is all part of end time events. We know that absolutely nothing is going to happen without God’s divine permission. Everyone who has been saved by the grace of God has absolutely nothing to be afraid of because as bad as events appear to be happening we know that we are not going to be here in the not too distant future.

In Luke’s Gospel chapter 27 the Lord Jesus tells us of future events and the mindset of people who do not want the living God in their lives. They want nothing to do with our beloved Lord and Saviour. He spoke in great detail of what this world is going to be like during ‘doomsday’! And then He said something very interesting:

“And when these things begin to come to pass,
then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.”
Luke 27: 28.

We are seeing all these things happening right now! It’s there on the news, on our devices and even right on our doorstep! As gloomy as this appears to us all, there is a wonderful element of encouragement as well, because something glorious and truly wonderful is about to happen for all of God’s people!

The Lord Jesus made a precious promise to His disciples just before He went to Calvary to die for our sins on the cruel cross, and He will keep it. One soon day this precious promise is going to be fulfilled much to the great delight and comfort of His people… especially those who are earnestly awaiting His return!

“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.
In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you.
I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself;
that where I am, there ye may be also.”
John 14: 1-3

If things are getting pretty grim here on earth and we wonder how long we have to wait until our ‘blessed hope’ is fulfilled, let us take courage in knowing that every day that Jesus hasn’t come yet is not another disappointing day for us, but rather, it is another opportunity to tell someone about Jesus who is our only hope, and to encourage them, and to pray in earnest for the souls of our of our unsaved loved ones before it is too late. And every passing day allows us the opportunity to get to know our beloved Lord Jesus a little deeper.  The longer we wait, the greater our appreciation that day of rejoicing will be when at last we will hear the call of our beloved Lord Jesus to rise up from this place to meet Him in the air to be with Him which is infinitely better.

If there are a number of people in the secular community very aware of the peril this world is in and are sending out warning signals to the powers that be to do something about it, how much more ought we to be prepared for that glorious event that is set to happen ‘before midnight’? And how much more diligent ought we to be at sounding the warning as well and pointing them to the Way God has provided to escape.

'Doomsday' will not be permitted to happen while God’s people are still here!
We will have to be removed to a place of safety first!

The Word of God clearly tells us that His trusting people are: “serving the living and true God, and waiting for his Son from heaven, whom he raised from the dead, even Jesus, which delivered us from the wrath to come.(See 1 Thessalonians 1: 9-10.)

And Jesus Himself told us that: “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly …” Revelation 3: 10-11.

I don’t suppose it could be more clear and more encouraging than that, could it? Dear friends, we are not going to be here for much longer … Jesus is coming, like He promised He would. He is coming for all those who have humbly trusted in Him as their Lord and personal Saviour. He is coming for all those who have been ‘born again’. He paid the highest price to make us His own and He is coming to take to Himself all who belong to Him.

Maybe we can do a thing or two to improve the moral, climatical, or geopolitical environment in which we are living, but let us not forget that this world is headed for judgement for its rejection of the only means of salvation He has provided. And when He is done, He is going to wrap this all up one day and create: "according to his promise … new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.” 2 Peter 3: 13.  This will be an eternal state which we as God’s people are very much looking forward to … but not before we have the unspeakable joy of being with the One ‘who loved us and gave Himself for us’ …  forever!
