(KJV.) II PETER 3:9-10
(9) The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
(10) But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.
ARE YOU WITH US?
Therefore, why will anyone refuse to come out of their shells, embellish themselves in the lights of grace, have peace, joy and hope of eternal life? this is a point to ponder on!; the fact of the matter is, Jesus is coming back to the world again, sooner than we anticipated, however, if we should have doubtful minds, not to believe that he is coming again soon; the above text is for us to understand, the reason why Jesus had not yet arrived in this world; our Father is longsuffering to us-ward, he is patient, forbearing, tolerantly waiting upon his wayward children to repent of their sins, come into his light, receive Jesus Christ into their hearts as Lord and Savior; not willing that any should perish in Hade's eternal damnation, rather, to have salvation, free grace, and eternal lives; therefore, let us not turn deaf ears upon the warnings of his servants, to walk in godliness, for no one knows for sure when Jesus will appear in the skies, to receive his believers unto himself forevermore.
For instance, when our Father called Noah to build the Ark, the wickedness of humanity was great upon the earth, imaginations, thoughts of their hearts were evil continually. (Genesis 6); no one believed his warnings, until the flood came to destroy human lives, living creatures, except those who found grace in the eyes of our Father, dwelled in the Ark with Noah and his family, until the flood waters subsided on earth: if we compare what is going on in our world, with what happened during the era of Noah, before destruction of the world with flood waters; evil works going on in our world currently is much greater than what our Father's wrath destroyed humanity for in the days of Noah; therefore, let us give thanks to Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, for his advocates, pleads with our Father to have mercy on humanity, not to destroy souls yet, rather to give them second, third and fourth chances to repent of their sins, come unto him with all their labors, heavy laden, receive rest in him forevermore; the question is, how much time do humanity need from Jesus Christ, before they discern that someday, sooner or later something dramatic will happen in this world, that will bring an end to all evil works; that day could be today or tomorrow, let us be prepared everyday, in case Jesus appears in the skies, the next minute, hour, the next day or two, he is coming back again soon!
Dearly beloved, Jesus is coming back to the world suddenly, just like the thief of the night, he will appear in the skies, to draw his believers unto life everlasting; therefore, let us continue to walk in his righteousness, have clear consciences towards one another, love one another as ourselves, offer goodwill towards the needy, forgive our offenders, forget their trespasses, that our heavenly Father may forgive us when we trespass against him, accommodate one another regardless of who they are in this world, be respectful towards one another, live peaceably with all men forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
