“But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up. Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,” ~ 2 Peter 3:10-11
If all the material things, that we so love to accumulate, are going to be dissolved,
Then it is wiser to spend our time and effort accumulating spiritual treasure that will be preserved for eternity.
If the whole earth will be burned up,
Then we should start making arrangement for life in another home; specifically heaven (not mars that’s going to pass away too).
If the Lord is coming “like a thief in the night”
Then we should ourselves (as we would for regular/real thieves) so that we aren’t caught off-guard/unprepared.
If the whole planet earth will be destroyed,
Then it’s not so important to fight and strive over which part of it we own.
If everything is going to pass away,
Then we should spend more time warning everyone, especially those that we say that we love.
If we know a storm is coming, but we don’t know when,
Then it is wise to build our houses on The Rock called Jesus.
