You have read the Holy Scripture and heard the prophecies, which has cast most into denial or an elevated state of fear. Many of you have seen with your own eyes the increasing number of major earthquakes, catastrophic storms, seemingly endless heatwaves, and forest fires engulfing an entire continent. At times it seems like the world is coming apart with one disaster after another. Many of you have adopted your favorite prophecy, which attempts to give meaning to what’s currently happening in the world and what’s on the horizon. Some have believed that before things get too bad, they will be whisked away in a secret rapture, while others believe that they must endure the Great Tribulation to strengthen their faith and mold them into all godliness. Unfortunately, some believe that they can bring the Kingdom in by force through the political process and the institution of new laws. Their prophecy is summed up in bringing in the Christian Kingdom by force forcing everyone to obey. Contrary to what you believe, the truth is we are all going to die. Contrary to what you believe the heavens and the earth will pass away, perhaps sooner than you think. This could be your last warning.
The last time the world was completely destroyed, it was caused by the great flood sent by God to punish the inhabitants of the world. They were similar to the inhabitants living today, they were destroyed for their vain imaginations and for rejecting God as their Creator (II Peter 3:6). God will not violate His promise, to not destroy the earth again with water, but to save the earth for its ultimate destruction by fire (II Peter 3:7). This destruction is known as the Day of God. This Day of God is the final chapter for both the heavens and the earth. It all begins in the heavens, which we refer to as the sky or our very essential atmosphere that reaches up to the edge of space. The Day of God begins when the heavens are on fire and the elements melt with a fervent heat, (all five elements), causing them to be dissolved. Perhaps, this will be observed as the great auroras quickly spread to every corner of the planet making the darkness seem like daylight? As the elements are dissolved with fire our ability to breathe would quickly diminish, which also allows the dangerous ultraviolet radiation to fill the entire planet. Then the heavens shall pass away with a great noise. When our protective atmosphere passes away, then everything on the earth, every structure, every element, and every biological life form will be burnt up (carefully read II Peter 3:10-12). This is the Day of God, which is destined to happen, perhaps sooner than you think.
Dear children, there will be no place to hide, for the deepest cavern or the strongest man-made silo will not protect you. What causes everything on earth to be burned up, we cannot say, although many scientists today believe that a huge corner mass ejection (CME) from the sun could easily perform the task. Could it also come from a giant solar storm or a huge polar vortex, just observed recently, that comes out from the sun, we cannot say. We will leave that detail up to God who has infinite power to use whatever method He deems appropriate. The point is, it will happen. Dear children, this whole process of dissolving the atmosphere could take days, weeks, or even months for all the elements in the atmosphere and those on the earth to melt with fervent heat and be burnt up. The Bible says, “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28). Although there will be many signs for those who believe, most will be taken completely unaware because Christ will come as a thief in the night. He will come at a time of His choosing and not ours. This coming as a thief in the night is spoken of often in Scripture by our Lord and also by His apostles (I Thessalonians 5:2-4, II Peter 3:10). The principle of coming as a thief is clear. To catch a thief, we must be awake with our eyes fully open. We must learn to examine the signs with great discernment. Once we have agreed that they are legitimate signs of His coming, then we need to prepare, which we will discuss in detail below.
So, what are the signs of Christ’s coming? For dedicated believers in Christ, you might say, that the great falling away from the faith could be a major sign, even if it’s not recognized by most. Most people today, either Christian or unbeliever, no longer trust in God exclusively witnessed by their dependence upon psychological counseling, the internet of inexhaustible knowledge, and the governmental or political system to provide for their every need. Then, there is the dreaded Antichrist who will lead humanity astray by putting your trust in everything but God alone. The Antichrist bridges the gap between trusting in him or trusting in yourself to solve all your problems as your own little god sitting on the throne in the throne room of your own heart. Then there are the many plagues, woes, and bowls of God’s wrath that are already being fulfilled, which I have written extensively about for many years. We would be blind not to see psychology in the first woe, the Muslim invasion in the second woe, the many plagues with COVID-19 as the latest, and then there are the many so-called natural disasters. We have witnessed an increasing number of major earthquakes, tsunamis, powerful hurricanes, horrific flooding, volcanoes, and rising temperatures making it intolerable for humanity. We have seen all the signs. We just need to get ready.
So, how do we get ready? How do we prepare? As I said before finding a cave, a silo, or even a mountain top will not help. The only way to prepare is to reach deep within your heart. We need to do a self-evaluation and make sure that we have the assurance of our salvation. Do you believe in the works of Christ on the Cross and have submitted to Him completely as your Lord? Have you submitted to follow His will exclusively by obeying all of His beautiful commandments? Are you being filled with the Spirit of God, who gives you the ability to follow and to obey? Are you allowing the Spirit to grow you from one degree of glory to another by putting off the old life and putting on the new life through your transformation in Christ? If you are, then you will see the spiritual fruits through your holy conversation with others and walking in godliness every moment of every day. You will be drawn to deep prayer and meditation taking no thought of the passage of time. You will be drawn to the Holy Scripture with a deep desire to follow its teachings. In time you will witness one little miracle after another where you can see the hand of God actually working in your life. You will have all assurance that you are prepared to meet Christ coming in the clouds (Luke 21:27).
Finally, as a new person in Christ, you will look for every opportunity to share your personal testimony with others, as God gives you an open door. You will walk in faith casting out every evil thought and vain imagination. You will experience the peace that defies understanding even if you face persecution. You will demonstrate openly the great joy you have in your heart. You will not fear what lies ahead, but you will look forward to it with great anticipation in your heart. We will hold this following Scripture deep within our hearts, that says, “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat? Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness” (II Peter 3:12-13). Amen
Please join me in Prayer
Good morning Heavenly Father. Thank you, Father God, for speaking through all your true prophets and Apostles about the things to come. We cannot be like the pagan and change the inevitable, but we can follow our calling and change our hearts. It’s hard to imagine the protective covering around the earth, the heavens, being destroyed by fire and everything on the planet being melted away with fervent heat, no doubt from the sun for which we have received recent reports about. You have warned us not to bolster our pride thinking we have it in our power to change the things to come by decrying Global Warming, but you have told us so that we can change our hearts through the power of the Gospel. We pray that all your beloved children would spend every waking moment learning how to live godly lives by putting off the old life and putting on the new life in Christ. As the Day of the Lord draws closer every day, we pray that our lives would be transformed to become more like you our blessed Savior in Holy conversation, attitude, self-giving love, and righteous behavior. We pray this in the Holy Name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
Reading from the King James Version, the Bible says,
“Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness, Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat” (II Peter 3:11-12).
