1 Thessalonians 5:1-5
“But concerning the times and the seasons, brethren, you have no need that I should write to you. For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night. For when they say, ‘Peace and safety!’ then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.”
The Apostle Paul gives us an interesting key to the Last Days scenario. He tells us that the Rapture of the Church will happen at a time when the world is preoccupied with the matters at hand. But we Christians are not to be sitting around idly plucking our harps in practice for that great day. The believer is not to be so fixated with heaven that we neglect the fact that we are to be busy about our Father’s business until Christ comes.
How can we sit still at this hour? Are you sensing that current world events indicate that Jesus’ coming is near? Can you look around and see that the season is changing, and God is about to interrupt our plans?
The soon appearing of Jesus Christ to earth should be a catalyst that energizes us to grow deeper in our knowledge of God. His return should cause us to be absolutely committed to evangelizing the world as much as possible. What an encouragement this passage is! We will not be in the dark concerning His appearance. We will not be surprised when the trumpet blast sounds. Those who look for Him shall see Him, and we shall be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of the eye! Are you ready?
