Are you ready?
26 “Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. 27 People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all. 28 “It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. 29 But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulphur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all. 30 “It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed.
So when will the day of revealing of the Son of Man be? When will He return?
Jesus never gives a check list that can be used as a tick off leading to the event.
Instead He used 2 famous stories of Noah and Lot to say what it will be like.
Firstly, life will be normal. No one will suspect a thing. Everyone will be focused on a bright future. As in the days of Noah.
Secondly, people will think nothing will touch them. They will have an attitude which says we are invincible. As in the days of Lot.
Thirdly, their will be no warning neither will there be people suspecting His return. It will be akin to destruction falling immediately and quickly.
Now look around today.
See how normal life is for the many?
See how everyone are planning for their future?
But those who follow Jesus are ready for Him.
