“I will show wonders in the heavens and in the earth: blood, fire, and pillars of smoke.”
There will be physical indicators in the end times that the coming of the Lord is very near. The natural world will become uneasy as if in expectation of its deliverance from the grip of human sin. The New Testament also speaks to us of these phenomenon. Matthew, Mark, Luke and the book of Acts tells us about the time after the tribulation when these signs will take place. Peter refers to the prophet Joel in his preaching and Jesus speaks of these events in His teaching also.
“But immediately after the oppression of those days, the sun will be darkened, the moon will not give its light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken; and then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky.”
The end will come quickly, but the signs will all be there to warn the inhabitants of earth that the Lord is coming imminently. Beloved, we must all be ready for this time and for the Saviour who will return and be the judge of all the earth.
The book of Revelation tells us that though the signs of His coming are blatant, most will turn away, such is the unbelief that resides in the human heart and the folly that ruins our psyche. Do not wait until your heart is too hard to turn and humble yourself before the Lord, but come when He is calling you. Perhaps you hear him now…
Now is the time to repent and be saved, for His Spirit will not always speak to you. Do not delay any longer, but repent from your sinful heart and ways and find the freedom that is only found in Christ. He alone is able to save, for He has given His life as a random to set you free.
