WEDNESDAY, MARCH 30
Scripture: Matthew 24:36-39, Matthew 13
Matthew 24:36-39 says, “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.” No one knows the day or hour of the Lord’s return, but this we know – it will be like the days of Noah. The flood was a judgment. And there will be a flood of judgment that comes and takes the wicked away. In Matthew 13, Jesus taught the parable of the sower. He said the angels will go out into the Kingdom and will remove all things that offend and those that practice lawlessness. “Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father.” That is a precipitating event prior to the end. Judgment is going to be manifest in the last days. The question is, are you and I doing our part in directing it where it is supposed to go? That is obviously the job of the church and we need to start doing it!
