Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. Luke 12:35-37
In the days of Noah, God told Noah to prepare an ark so that he can protect Noah and his family and every kind of animals because of the thing he wanted to do to the people of that generation. Noah receives and believed the word by faith and start building the ark. When he started the project, people around him then was mocking him, but he never get discouraged and distracted. He continued as God has instructed him. (See Genesis 6)
And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. And it repented the LORD that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at his heart. And the LORD said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them. But Noah found grace in the eyes of the LORD. Genesis 6:5-8
God wanted to wipe out the whole generation then because they were too comfortable in sin, man’s wickedness was too much, they were unable to discern good from bad, and all their heart is full of evil. God even said he regretted that he created man because his thoughts are evil. Despite the fact that Noah was working daily in constructing the ark, they still never believed the judgment day was near or even joined him in building the ark until he completed it and every kind of animal went in both male and female, Noah’s family also went in and finally the door was shut.
When the rain started, they thought it was a joke until it rained for forty days and night and every creature all perish inside the rain save those only who are in the ark. (See Genesis 7)
Jesus The Son of God
When Jesus was in the world, he told them he was the son of God sent from Heaven, but they never believed him, even after when he performed a lot of miracle, healing the sick, raising the dead, opening the eyes of the blind, casting out demons and also teaching them so many things, they still never believed.
He told his disciples that the son of man is going to die and shall rise up the third day, but his disciples didn’t understand what he meant by that statement, until he was crucified and then the stone was rolled away, until Jesus rose the third day and conquer the grave, before people now believed he was the true son of God.
Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God. Matthew 27:54.
And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it. Matthew 28:2
Now he’s seated at the right side of God in heaven.
The Second Coming of Jesus Christ
Now, the same Jesus is coming back soon again to take his beloved to heaven and many still don’t seems to believe in his second coming. Some even said he has been hearing this same message ever since when he had been born and yet he’s has still not come, so they don’t have any reason to believe. Brethren, I want to let you know that the second coming of Jesus Christ is not near anymore but is already here and only those who are worthy and ready to reign with him in his kingdom will he come for. That day will be like a thief in the night, nobody knows when it will happen but his coming is here already.
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
On that day, there will be a great earthquake and shaking of the earth. Many people will run to and fro just to hide or even run to church to reconcile with him, brethren, by then it will be too late to do that. Parents will not remember their children neither will children remember their parents because it will be a sudden event that the date will not be announced.
Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Revelation 3:3
On that day, some people will still go to the market, some will be sleeping, some will be eating, some will be dancing, some will be fighting, some will be having fun, some will be playing while some will be praying, some will be watching TV, some will be watching pornography, some will be drinking, some will be ready while some will not be ready. WILL YOU BE READY?
Dear friend, do you know where you belong if Jesus should come today? Do you know where you will spend eternity if Jesus should come today, of course there can only be two places to spend eternity which is either heaven or hell. Where do you belong?
How prepare are you for the second coming of Jesus Christ?
BRETHREN, don’t be like the people in the generation of Noah that took the event unserious, until they were all wiped out from the surface of the earth. The door of salvation is still open today, surrender your life to Jesus now so that he can give you new life and also give you a new beginning.
Confess your sin now to him and tell him to come into your life now so that your name can be written in the book of life. If you want to surrender to him now say this simple prayer with me in faith: say Lord Jesus, i know I’m a sinner, i surrender all to you, i dedicate my life to you, i believe that you died for my sin and i confess with my mouth that you are the son of God, come in to my life now and be my savior, i will no longer live a life of sin again,from now on i will live to please you, please wash away my sins with your precious blood, give me a new life and a new beginning. Thank you for saving me i ‘m no longer a sinner, i ‘m now born again, in Jesus name Amen.
