Maranatha! (The Lord is Coming Again)!

As the days of Noah were,

so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.

Matthew 24:37

Shorty before His death on the cross, the Lord Jesus told His disciples about His second coming. In Matthew 24:37, the Lord said: “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.

He then explained that He was not talking about another great flood like in Noah’s day, but rather on the people’s attitude just before the flood came. He said, “In the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage … and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away” (Matthew 24:38-39).

In other words, just before the flood, people were doing what they always do—eating, drinking, marrying and so forth. But in the midst of it all, they ignored Noah’s warnings and deliberately turned their backs on God. They had ample warning of God’s coming judgement, but they refused to believe, and were swept away as a result.

It will be the same, the Lord said, before He returns. Most people will ignore God’s Word and go on living their lives as if God did not matter or even exist. But suddenly, time will run out, Christ will return, and then it will be too late. But it does not need to be that way! When we know Christ, we have no reason to fear the future, because we belong to Him forever.

Are you ready for that day? You can be, by giving your life to Christ. In a simple act of faith; in prayer, you just need to ask the Lord Jesus to come into your life today, to save you and forgive you your sins.
