Time as we read this word is ticking away; literally ticking away. As a movie clicking away at the last frames which will soon end, or as water pouring out of a glass which will become empty, so too one day time will finally run out on the sound of the last trumpet, and then this earth will pass away (1 Peter 21:33) (Mark 13:31) (2 Peter 3:10). No human on this earth has the power to extend habitation on this earth.
Jesus says: “Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame” (Revelation 16:15).
