They are coming – and have been prophesied to come – those who make fun of your walk with Jesus and as in the days of Noah, will be consumed with their own passions until the day of their destruction.
The scoffing will sound like this, “Where is the promise of His coming? The people who have been proclaiming this are now dead themselves and all things continue as they always have from the beginning of creation.”
In addition to the obvious, the comments about creation are not what you and I determine as intelligent design, rather the norm is evolution. They were not there when the earth was formed out of water and by means of water and they have no idea of the fire that is being kept for the day of judgement and destruction. As a side note, just wonder what preachers get out of the fact of determining how long it took for creation to take place? If it was one day, it was one day. If we take a thousand years to us is as one day for the Lord then one day was a thousand years. Why get caught up in earthly wisdom that is designed only to ensure evolution theory has a jumping off point to deceive and take away any support to intelligent design?
Just as it took Noah 120 years to build the ark – in order to give everyone an opportunity to repent and not perish, so the Lord is not slow on His promise of coming again. He wants everyone to hear the gospel and respond by following Him. But when He comes, we should know that it will be quick, and heaven and earth will pass away.
That means we need to be reminded also to live godly lives now, today, as a sign that we wait for new heavens and a new earth where we will reside. May we be found on that day in right standing with God and at peace with Him.
There are some things in the scriptures that are hard to understand, and the ignorant and unstable will twist them to their own destruction but let us beware that we are not carried away by those arguments and lose our own stability.
May we continue to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for to Him belong glory both now and to the day of eternity.
