We live in a wonderful age; our technology enables us to do things that were impossible just a couple of hundred years ago. I imagine there have been thousands upon thousands of bullets fired into shot-glasses like the one above, but thanks to modern photography we can actually see it happen. So, we can see what never could be seen and understand what was a mystery in times past. We still cannot peer into the future and view the day of Christ's coming again and I am not sure I would if I could. But, based on the facts from the Scriptures, I believe it will happen. Paul writes to the Thessalonians...
1 Thessalonians, Chapter 5 (WEB)
1 But concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need that anything be written to you. 2 For you yourselves know well that the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night. 3 For when they are saying, “Peace and safety,” then sudden destruction will come on them, like birth pains on a pregnant woman; and they will in no way escape. 4 But you, brothers, aren’t in darkness, that the day should overtake you like a thief. 5 You are all children of light, and children of the day. We don’t belong to the night, nor to darkness, 6 so then let’s not sleep, as the rest do, but let’s watch and be sober. 7 For those who sleep, sleep in the night, and those who are drunk are drunk in the night. 8 But let us, since we belong to the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and, for a helmet, the hope of salvation. 9 For God didn’t appoint us to wrath, but to the obtaining of salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10 who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him. 11 Therefore exhort one another, and build each other up, even as you also do.
The "day of the Lord" will be a day of confirmation of faith for some and condemnation for others. As the Scriptures teach, it will come quickly- so be ready!! And quickly means just that- like a blink of an eye or a speeding bullet. Read the quote above again, (especially verse six and eleven) and patiently wait. If you are NOT a Christian, do something about your status before God now, before it is too late!!! Times a wasting!!!
