“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.
