Just a few words of truth about this Judgement Day prediction as I sit here reading my Bible this morning. First of all, the Bible says that when the Lord comes back for His children, He will come as a “thief in the night”. ” For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.” I Thessalonians 5:2-3 ESV
Secondly, we are told by Jesus in Matthew 24: 11, that in the last days there will be many come who are false prophet. These false prophets will lead many astray from the truth. This has been clear in the last few days. We as Christ followers need to be diligently reading God‘s Word so that when someone speaks in error, like Mr. Camping has done, we will know the truth and will not be led astray.
Finally, we as Christ followers need to stand firm in the faith, and to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.” Jude 3. Daily put on the whole armor of God that we may be able to withstand whatever Satan has to throw at us. (Ephesians 6:10-18)
Jesus is coming for His saints and only God the Father knows when this event will happen! We must be ready and be diligently looking for HIs return, but at the same time we must shine His light daily in this dark place in which we live.
