There is one scripture in Luke that strikes fear and excitement to me. As we see Bible prophecy being fulfilled in our very eyes and the stage for the “last days” is being set, are we able to see and understand the sign of the age?
Don’t be caught off-guard
It is said at the last days that life on earth will be the same as it is. People will be marrying, going on to their normal daily routine, and continuing in their lives until they are overtaken by the second coming of Jesus like a thief in the night. Luke 17:26-27 says;
“And as it was in the days of Noah, so shall it be also in the days of the Son of man. They did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered into the ark, and the flood came, and destroyed them all.”
On the second coming of Jesus Christ, things are normal as they may seem until the GREAT tribulation comes upon the face of the earth (Matthew 24).
God is gracious and very patient with us. He wants us to change and make the right decisions in our lives before it’s too late.
Is this the end-time?
One news item that really caught my eyes last month is the affirmation of the White House that President Obama is now supporting SYRIAN REBEL GROUPS! How can the PRESIDENT of the United States become so blind that he cannot see what he is actually doing? What he did was unimaginable for a president to support REBEL GROUPS possibly Al-Qaeda! Even Abraham Lincoln will turn to his grave once he knows what is happening today!
We can see in Bible Prophecy that the United States along with other English-speaking nation will fall before Jesus’ second coming. They will be slaves once again just like their ancestors, the ancient Israelites. With the absence of a great superpower to help the nation of Israel, the prophecy “when you see Jerusalem surrounded by armies, then the end shall come (Luke 21:20)” shall be fulfilled.
Because of the rebellious attitude of the modern Israel nation (US, UK, Canada, Australia, and others), they will eventually fall down and the gentile nation will rise up as we are now seeing.
Will you be like the people in the Days of Noah?
It is obvious that people will ignore the warnings written in the pages of your Bible. People will even get worse and worse as what we can read in I Timothy 3:1-9. We can look at the story of Noah and the great flood today and derive some vital lessons.
People thought that Noah is crazy and no one believed Noah except his family. People are so SURE that the flood will never happen. Does this sound familiar? Does this resonate the state of the world today? People are very ignorant and very hostile towards God and His way of living.
The question now is, will you heed the warnings? You do not have to wait for Christ’s second coming to change. The decision should be made NOW and there are no other better days to do so.
The people of this world will soon see how God is very real. Every knee shall bow down and every tongue shall confess that God is truly God.
