When will the end of the world be?

 
MUCH HAS BEEN written about the alleged time and day for the end of the world...

 

The media has used it to make fun of "Christianity."  Some no doubt will say that because the Judgment day did not come that it will never happen!  But a sobering thought crossed my mind last Saturday night.  What if Mr. Camping had been right? What if the world had ended? What if the Judgment Day had occurred?

 

There would be no more chances for me to tell my wife and children how much I love them or how much they mean to my life.

 

There would be no more chances for me to say I'm sorry to someone I might have offended.

 

There would be no more chances for me to preach messages that so badly need to be heard.

 

There would be no more chances for me to make sure my life is right with God.

 

There would be no more chances for me to spend time with friends and loved ones.

 

There would be no more chances for me to tell friends how special they are to me.

 

There would be no more chances for me to express gratitude to someone who has been kind to me.

 

There would be no more chances for me to mend broken relationships.

 

There would be no more chances for me to repent of sins in my life.

 

There would be no more chances for me to study the Word of God.

 

There would be no more chances for me to pray for others.

 

The fact is Mr. Camping was wrong, but it is still true that "the Day of the Lord will come…" (2 Peter 3:9-10).  It is still true that we will all "stand before the judgment seat of God." (Romans 14:10)  It is still true that "each one of us will give an account of himself before God." (Romans 14:12) The question is as valid as ever, "Are you ready for the Judgment Day?"

 

There is still time. Do something you need to do today. Don't delay. Remember these words of our Savior, "We must work the works of Him who sent Me as long as it is day; night is coming when no one can work." (John 9:4)

 

Dear Father, thank you so much for allowing us more opportunities to do something we need to do now.  Help us to quit putting off important tasks that need to be accomplished and important words that need to be said.  Help us dear God, to live every day for You. In the Name of our wonderful Savior we pray, Amen.  Jeff Jenkins, http://thejenkinsinstitute.com/2011/05/what-if-mr-camping-had-been-right/

 

 "The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up."  2 Peter 3.9-10
