If we believe that Yeshua is coming again, as the Bible clearly indicates, then we should heed carefully the advice of Paul. No one knows the hour of the return of the Lord. However, if we believe He will return, then we should take care to be prepared. Live faithfully and obediently submitted to Him even now while He is not here and we will be prepared for His return. On the other hand, for those who decide to live as if they will never be accountable before Yeshua… they will have a day of reckoning that will be difficult for them.
The Day of the Lord
1Now as to the times and the epochs, brethren, you have no need of anything to be written to you. 2For you yourselves know full well that the day of the Lord will come just like a thief in the night. 3While they are saying, “Peace and safety!” then destruction will come upon them suddenly like labor pains upon a woman with child, and they will not escape. 4But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that the day would overtake you like a thief; 5for you are all sons of light and sons of day. We are not of night nor of darkness; 6so then let us not sleep as others do, but let us be alert and sober. 7For those who sleep do their sleeping at night, and those who get drunk get drunk at night. 8But since we are of the day, let us be sober, having put on the breastplate of faith and love, and as a helmet, the hope of salvation. 9For God has not destined us for wrath, but for obtaining salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, 10who died for us, so that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with Him. 11Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing.
Do not live as if He will never return. Even if He does not return in your lifetime, you will still face a judgment day when you die. Live like you know you will be accountable for your obedience… or lack of it. Obedience is how we demonstrate our love for Him.
