Do You Know the Lord’s Coming is Close?

By: Woody Godbey

2 Peter 3:3-4 says, “Knowing this first: that scoffers will come in the last days, walking according to their own lusts, and saying, 'Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”

I’ve studied myself and mankind in general and have concluded.  We know what is right, but we choose to do certain things that are wrong. We know what the Bible says, but somehow, we think that we are above it. Or it won't happen to us. So, we end up playing around with sin.  And when we do that, sin ends up playing around with us.  I’m not saying that doing wrong is our whole lifestyle but we’ve all been there and done that.

The same thing is true when it comes to Bible Prophecy.  There are many people in our day who know that Bible prophecy is true. They know that God has foretold many of the events that are now happening around us. But they continue to live as they please. The attitude is, "Hey, everything is the same."  But everything is not the same.  We’re closer to His coming today than yesterday and the signs are plain to see.

I want everyone including the scoffers to know that the Lord's coming draws closer every day. The Bible says, "The night is far spent, the day is at hand, let us cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light" (Romans 13:12). Listen folks, it’s time for us to wake up.  I was reading a Todd Starnes article this morning and went down to the comment part and you wouldn’t believe the number of scoffers who make fun of God and those of us who believe.  But one day they will come face to face with the one they have blasphemed. 

For some reason or another I’ve been waking up early in the morning, like around 5:30 and it’s still pitch-black outside. I don’t like to look at the clock but sometimes I must double-check. It can't be 5:30. It's got to be 1:30. It's so dark. But you know what, every day that sun slowly begins to rise. And when it was only darkness a few moments ago, suddenly it's lightening up. And the next thing you know the sun is out and it's all lit up.

This is how our world is right now. It's dark. And it has been dark for a long time. We say it will always be this way. No. The sun is beginning to rise. Jesus is going to come back again, and I believe it is very soon. It may or may not be in my life time but it’s not far off.  I can see the Son lighting up the sky.   Be ready for His return.  Don’t be caught off guard.  God Bless!
