In the last sermonette I dealt with the second return of the Lord. I said that God has a plan and He has not changed His plan. He said Heaven and Earth will pass away but the word of the Lord abideth forever. He has given us enough to know what to do and how to do it. (1 John 2:26-28) (Chapter 5 verse 8)
So the things that was written in the Bible is enough to let us know what is and that which is to come. God did not allow everything in detail to be written because if He did man could very well pin point the day in which the Lord would come. So say some try to use every little incident that happens in the world to try and bring it in line with prophecy but that is not so.
Man has tried many times to set times and days but Jesus said that only the Father knows not even the angels in Heaven knows when Christ shall come. The most important thin is not when He will come, the most important is to be ready when He does come. He said, be ye also ready for a hour that ye think not the son of man cometh. (Matthew 25:1-12) Jesus gave forth the parable of the ten virgins, only those that were ready went in then the door was shut.
Luke 12:25 tells us it’s too late when the door is shut, the day of grace is over, finished, come to an end. While God have dealt with this generation of the age of grace longer then He ever dealt with man in any other dispensation. For over two thousand years God has reached down in love, mercy, patience, long suffering; not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. Someone may say, will God send anyone to Hell, many will go to a lost eternity without God because He has rejected the plan that God has set forth in His word. There is going to be a shaking.
The only things that will remain is the thing that cannot be shaken. I don’t wonder why they use to sing years ago on Christ the solid rock I stand. All other ground is sinking sand. His oath, His covenant, His blood is the only thing that will keep us when the shaking starts. I’m glad I’m on the firm foundation, Jesus Christ. There is a place of safety, there is a refuge for the soul, there is peace in the midst of the storm.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower, the righteous run into it and they are safe.
The wicked shall be turned into Hell, and all the nations that forget God.
