The irony is that right now, if there was a global alert that an asteroid or meteor was going to hit earth, and that every human being must take precautions to go to the safe areas, without any doubt untold numbers of people will heed the warning.
Yet, the warning issued by God, the Creator of this heaven and earth is being ignored by innumerable numbers of people.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).
“And the times of this ignorance God winked at; but now commandeth all men everywhere to repent. Because he hath appointed a day, in the which he will judge the world in righteousness by that man whom he hath ordained; whereof he hath given assurance unto all men, in that he hath raised him from the dead” (Acts 17:30-31).
“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance” (2 Peter 3:9).
“And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters; And the name of the star is called [WORMWOOD]: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter” (Revelation 8:7-11).
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).
