I want to stir up our hearts by remembering what Believers who have gone before us have written… Scoffers will come in the last days, scoffing. They will follow their own sinful desires. They will mock, saying, “Whatever happened to Your Promised King returning? People are dead and buried and nothing has changed.”
These people do not take into account that before nothing existed there was God. God was the One who made the Heavens. He made the earth. He formed the earth out of water, and then later destroyed the world with water. There will never be a flood destroying the earth again with water. Rather, this world is now fuel for the fire that is being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.
Don’t forget, my fellow Believers – this is an encouragement: that God’s timing is not our own. With the Lord, one day is like a thousand years and a thousand years is like a day. THE LORD IS NOT SLOW TO FULFILL HIS PROMISE AS WE MAY UNDERSTAND TIME. RATHER HE IS PATIENT TOWARD YOU, NOT WISHING ANY TO DIE, RATHER THAT THEY SHOULD COME TO REPENTANCE. The day of the Lord, will come like a thief. The Heavens will pass away with a roar and the Heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the Earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.
All these things we are sick of are going to be done away with. Finally! This should inspire us to live in a holy and Godly manner, waiting, anticipating, longing for the day Jesus comes back! Hallelujah! ACCORDING TO HIS PROMISE WE ARE WAITING FOR NEW HEAVENS AND A NEW EARTH IN WHICH RIGHTEOUSNESS DWELLS.
And I CANNOT WAIT!!!
COME, LORD, JESUS, COME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*These Truths come from Scripture – found in 2 Peter 3. I changed some wording for me to better understand the Truths. Still, this is God speaking to us through His Scripture.
