“Be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” Matthew 24:44 When Jesus left the temple at Jerusalem for the last time, His disciples asked what would signal His return to earth (Matthew 24:3). He told them many things to watch for, but warned that people would still be unprepared. The apostle Peter told us that in the last-days scoffers would say of Jesus’ return: “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation” (II Peter 3:4). Scoffers are with us today, just as Peter warned. Are you ready for the Lord Jesus to return? To ignore the Bible is to invite disaster.
