A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.”
We were returning home the other evening when we saw what I call “streak lightning.”The Bible tells us about lightning that shoots across the sky so it will be when our Lord shall return.Everyone sees the lightning so will everyone will see the Lord when He comes again.When we hear of all the wickedness that goes on around us it is hard for us to understand why people commit such awful crimes.The Bible teaches us that the circumstances will not get better and better till the Lord will return. No, but it will grow worse and worse, till God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually (Gen. 6:5). So shall it be when the Son of Man comes. "As in the days of Sodom" (Luke 17:29, 30). In the last days, "Perilous times" (2 Tim. 3:1); "Not endure sound doctrine" (2 Tim. 4:3); "Damnable heresies" (2 Peter 2:1); "Strong delusion" (2 Thess. 2:11); "Scoffers, walking after their own lusts" (2 Peter 3:3); "Many departing from the faith." The Second Coming of Christ will be an unfailing certainty. I am more and more convinced, as I grow older — that to keep our eyes steadily fixed on the second coming of Christ is one great secret of Christian peace. Are you ready to meet the Lord?
Can it be the Lord’s return could be soon
