Just as it was in the days of Noah, so too it will be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, they were drinking, they were marrying, they were being given in marriage—right up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.
Luke 17:26-27 NET
Jesus gave a very serious warning to those who would be living in the last days. He said it would be like the days of Noah (and Lot).
What was going on? Life! Everyone was busy going about their business, like an ordinary day. Then, the end came! It happened so fast and unexpected. Everyone who wasn’t in the ark perished.
But Noah, who was obedient and listened to the Lord, he and his family were saved.
The amazing thing is that the Bible only records God talking to Noah one time. One time was enough for Noah to listen and be obedient and save his family.
Do you know the truth today? You are informed. One day it will be the “Last Day.” Jesus will come back and it will be super fast!
Are you ready? Are you prepared?
There is a way of living that is so different than the world. Those who aren’t “saved” want to suck every little ounce of life out of their days. They don’t realize that this world isn’t all there is.
This world is temporary. One day it will be destroyed. But our hope and future are not tied to this world. We are tied to Heaven. We are citizens of Heaven.
The Christian needs to live ready and prepared in their relationship with God because Jesus can come back at any time.
Are you really ready? Is your heart right with the Lord? If not, don’t delay. Jesus is coming soon and it will be super fast.
Lord, thank You for allowing me to know the truth. Help me to remove anything in my life that doesn’t belong to You. Help me to be free of the hold of this world so that when it’s time, I can fly.
