In the time of Noah, a preacher of Righteousness, the old world doubted his warnings by the word of God that the earth was going to be destroyed by a great flood! Likewise in the days of Lot. A Righteous man, his two sons in laws mocked him when he told them that Sodom will be destroyed the next day at noon by fire and brimstone (2 Peter 2:4-8).
Today, untold numbers of people likewise are ignoring the word of God that the earth will be destroyed by FIRE! The whole world is more concerned about when this COVID-19 Coronavirus is going to go away and life can go back to normal.
DO NOT BE DECEIVED because the life on this earth is NOT NORMAL! By the word of God, this is an EVIL world! “[FOR RULERS ARE NOT A TERROR TO GOOD WORKS, BUT TO THE EVIL]” (Romans 13:3).
JESUS warns that his COMING will be at a time when people will be going about their “Normal” lives just as in the time fo Noah: “They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, [UNTIL THE DAY THAT NOE ENTERED INTO THE ARK, AND THE FLOOD CAME], and [DESTROYED THEM ALL].
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but [THE SAME DAY THAT LOT WENT OUT OF SODOM, IT RAINED FIRE AND BRIMSTONE FROM HEAVEN], and [DESTROYED THEM ALL]” (Luke 17:27–29).
Today, untold number of people in this world are ignoring the signs of time, and are too busy refusing BELIEVE the word of God that TIME IS COMING TO AN END (Acts 17:30-31) (Revelation 11:19, 20:11-15).
“But the day of the Lord will come as a [THIEF IN THE NIGHT]; in which the [HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT], the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
“[BUT YE, BRETHREN, ARE NOT IN DARKNESS], that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light” (1 Thessalonians 5:4–5).
“[THEREFORE LET US NOT SLEEP, AS DO OTHERS; BUT LET US WATCH AND BE SOBER]. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).
JESUS says: “[TAKE YE HEED, WATCH AND PRAY: FOR YE KNOW NOT WHEN THE TIME IS]” (Mark 13:33).
“[FOR AS A SNARE SHALL IT COME ON ALL THEM THAT DWELL ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH].
[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 21:35-36).
“Now the God of peace be with you all. Amen” (Romans 15:33).
