Have you heard about the second coming of Jesus Christ? IS IT A LIE? Do you believe He is coming again or your belief is that 'IT IS A LIE!'?
Do you remember that(or have you ever heard about) a similar event had happened before? This was when the Lord saw how wicked everyone on earth was and how evil their thoughts were all the time.He decided to wipe out the people He had created.
He instructed Noah,who had no faults and was the only good man of his time,to build an Ark for the salvation of his people.Noah did so.
Noah patiently waited for more than a century before the flood came.Can you imagine what people would be saying about him? They must have called him many names because what Noah was preparing for (the flood) was 'a lie'. Before that time,it had never rained.So,Noah's message of salvation had no meaning to people of his generation.
Who was right? Eventually,the flood came.Only eight people were saved,all were members of Noah's family.Others perished because they did not see any truth in the pending flood until it came.
Jesus Christ says, 'But as the days of Noah were,so also will the coming of the Son of Man be'.Matthew 24:37.
Another event was that of Sodom and Gomarrah.Two Angels were sent to destroy these places.The Angels told Lot to get out of the city of Sodom with his wife, daughters,sons-in-law and any other relative in the city.
When the sons-in-law were told,they thought he was joking.The young men failed to receive salvation,as many people today refuse to be saved from their misdeeds.They believed that IT IS A LIE! What happened later?
'Then the Lord rained brimstone and fire on Sodom and Gomorrah,from the Lord out of the heavens.So He overthrew those cities,all the plain,all the inhabitants of the cities....' Genesis 19:24-25.
In those days,as it is today,people were busy 'eating and drinking,marrying and giving in marriage' until destruction came upon them.
Therefore beloved,if you are one of those who think that IT IS A LIE that Jesus Christ is coming again,please,have a change of heart today because tomorrow may be late.He has said 'And behold,I am coming quickly,and my reward is with Me,to give to every one according to his work'. Revelation 22:12.
If,a) the Lord said He will send flood and it happened and b) said He will destroy Sodom and Gomarrah and it came to pass,
THEN,believe that Jesus Christ is coming soon! He has not come because he is waiting for you to repent and wait patiently for His arrival.
