And now I have told you before it comes, that when it does come to pass, you may believe
Many people grow nervous when the storm clouds roll in and the thunder rumbles in the distance. Imagine how Noah must have felt when he looked up and saw a dark cloud forming on the horizon.
He had heard and heeded God’s instructions. For 100 years, he had worked and warned his family and neighbors. The rain was coming, and the flood would rise. He labored through day-after-day sunshine, building a boat for a flood in a world that had never seen a drop of rain.
When he drove the last nail into the final board and saw the storm clouds roll in, he did not get anxious about what was coming. He must have sighed in relief that his faith was fulfilled. He must have thanked God that He was true to His word.
Over two thousand years ago, Jesus assured us that He would return to earth as a conquering King. He made promises about perilous times and the pouring out of His Spirit, about disasters and dreams, about sorrows and signs in the sky, about tribulation and trumpets, about epidemics and the end.
Have you been working for His coming? Have you told your family and friends? God’s Word is true, and His timing is flawless. One day, He will split the eastern sky. His promise endures.
May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you and give you His peace. Thank God for the Ark of salvation, the Lord Jesus Christ! Rejoice and be exceedingly glad for our Rescuer and Redeemer!
