When We Least Expect It

Matt. 24:36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.”

 

Matt. 24:44 “ Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.”

 

 

One of the things I enjoy doing is watching the news while drinking my morning coffee. Every day I just shake my head and say to myself “the world is nuts!! People are crazy!! What will happen next??” The stories they tell are for the most part NOT good news. There is crime in every city, the fear of an almost incurable disease, attacks on the Christian faith, bad weather. On and on it goes.

 

I want to encourage you to read Matthew chapter 24 in its entirety. You will see that this really should not be a surprise to us. Although Jesus makes it very clear that no one will know the day or hour of His return other than our Father, He does give us signs of the end times. He tells us things that we can look to and know that the time is getting closer. He tells us to “Be ready” because He is coming when we least expect it.

 

Are you ready? Are the people you love ready? If you are not sure of the answer to these questions, let me encourage you to read the scriptures below and to share them with others who may be unsure if they are prepared for the coming of Jesus!! 

 

Romans 3:23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.

 

Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

 

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

 

Romans 10:9-10 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

 

Romans 10:13 For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
