What if your house caught on fire and you seen all your possessions burning up in the flame? What would you try to gather and save before the house burned up? Would you just stand there in shock? Would you try to look around and figure out why it happened? Would you look for anything left that you could possibly savage? Would you look for those prized possessions that meant so much to you?
Now imagine that the earth was on fire and everything was burning up. Jesus had gathered his people from the earth but some people remained that didn’t know the Lord Jesus. They were all there hopeless, standing in shock as they watched the earth burn up; trying to figure out what happened to all their loved ones. 2 Peter 3:10 says, “But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.” If you don’t know the Lord Jesus, now is the time of Salvation! If you are a Christian, now is the time to warn your loved ones that Jesus is coming soon!
We know by the signs that Jesus is coming soon. It will happen quickly, you will not have time to repent after he comes. You must repent now and by faith, receive Jesus as your Lord and Savior. 2 Peter 3:9 says, “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” 1 Corinthians 6: 9,10 says, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”
Revelation 6:14-17-And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places. And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
