Final Word-11

So Lot went out and spoke to his sons-in-law, who had married his daughters, and said, "Get up, get out of this place; for the LORD will destroy this city!" But to his sons-in-law he seemed to be joking. (Genesis 19:14)

Despite seeing all the catastrophic happenings around, there are still many who think that the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ is some kind of a joke.
When God was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, he sent his angels to warn Lot and his family. As we read above, Lot spoke to his sons-in-law of the coming calamity, but they thought that Lot was joking.

Preachers who preach that the end is near and the second coming of Jesus Christ is imminent are often ridiculed. Many Christians are still fed with the warm fuzzy gospel of health, wealth and materialism and most are content with it.

When Noah was building the ark, I guess many would have ridiculed him too. At age 500+, they must have thought that the old man had lost his marbles, but he knew exactly what he was doing and when the floods came, only he and his family of eight were saved.

Jesus, in his Olivet discourse said,
"As the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For as in those days which were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and they didn`t know until the flood came, and took them all away, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and one will be left; two women grinding at the mill, one will be taken and one will be left. Watch therefore, for you don`t know in what hour your Lord comes." (Matthew 24:37-42)

A reminder for all of us dear friends....
..You also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect. (Matthew 24:44)
