Are Things Heating Up?

I wonder if we live in a world of pleasant dreams. Have we imbibed the skepticism mentioned in II Peter 3:4? “….Where is the promise of His coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.” Are we closet doubters? We espouse the idea that He could return for His Church anytime and it could even be today. At the same time, we really don’t think it’s likely to happen in our lifetime. Was that how they felt just before the flood? There could be a flood but we are not apt to see it! Wickedness was at an all time high and the patience of God was finally exhausted! Israel sinned and sinned and judgment came! I believe wickedness is at an even greater “high” today. The Sodomy of today seems to transcend that of Sodom’s judgment. God used foreign nations to give Israel a wake-up call. False religion is rapidly spreading, apparently more than most people realize. Would God use this kind of threat to give America a wake-up call? Some generation could be the one to witness these things; who’s to say it’s not our generation? Can we mope along with a sub-standard ministry in a Laodicean dream world, only to awake to a genuine spiritual nightmare? There are other indications of things heating up. Matthew 24:44 gives us a solemn charge, “Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.” Consider the words of “What If It Were Today?” (By Lelia N. Morris). “Faithful and true would He find us here if He should come today? Watching in gladness and not in fear, if He should come today? Signs of His coming multiply, morning light breaks in eastern sky; watch, for the time is drawing nigh — what if it were today? Selah! Are we ready? Or, will it be a severe wake-up call?    Ron
