The prophetic plan set into motion before the beginning of time cannot be stopped by the world’s denial of God’s existence; or by its rebellious attitude that it’s the master of its own fate. The world might try to suppress and ignore the truth of God’s reality, but His divine attributes are on public display; everything that is—attests to His being. People might choose not to respect the Almighty; however, that does not obstruct humanity’s prophetic future.
Ready or not, Jesus is coming back.
But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the 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 imagine the impact believers would have on a dying world if more of us conducted our behavior as if Jesus’ return could come at any moment—unannounced.
Would we be caught:
- Passing up opportunities to spread the gospel?
- Holding unforgiveness?
- Treating people, the way we wouldn’t want to be treated?
- Harvesting pride?
- Worshiping idols?
- Mistreating our enemies?
- Purposefully deceiving others?
We can’t stop the clock to prepare—we must live ready.
