In times gone by, we heard of churches that predicted the end of the world. The members sell all their possessions, quit their jobs, and sit down to await the end. But these accounts are ridiculous and just plain pitiful! They are pitiful because the very Bible these people claim to obey teaches that there is no way one can figure out or know the time of the Lord’s return. Jesus taught that no one knows when the end will come (Mark 13:32-33). Do these people know something that the Lord doesn’t? You also hear people talking about the signs of the end, but truth is, the end has no signs or clues. The end of time has been described as coming without warning, and unexpectedly like a thief (Mark 13:34-37; 2 Peter 3:10).
We are not to predict the end nor sell everything or quit our jobs. We are to live day by day, serving God and preaching the gospel until He returns (2 Timothy 4:1-2; Jude 21-23). There are many lost souls that need to be saved, and a Christian cannot save them if he is locked away someplace.
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
