“The sun will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord comes.”
These signs will appear just before the end. It is not wise to delay salvation to our perceived last moment. The signs will be very frightening and everyone will know the end is in sight and Christ will appear to take His Christians away out of the troubles and judgment. But there will also be a time of great hardness of heart and strong delusion in those dreadful days. People will experience great fear, yet their rebellious hearts will still not bend or bow to the Saviour God has sent to us in great love. People will still reject the Lord because of the delusion that abounds and the exclusivity of the mark of the Beast, which will preclude the wearer from entering the kingdom.
Do not wait for the last signs. Jesus calls to us now and now is the day of salvation.
“But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, but no sign will be given it but the sign of Jonah the prophet. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.”
The final sign of salvation has already happened – the death and resurrection of our Saviour, the Lord Jesus. There is no more sign! People always want more or some sort of personal sign, but it is evil to require more than God has provided. Should you see the sun darkened, it will only generate fear, as the recent historical events engender fear, but there will be no repentance and no more day of salvation. The Lord will return with a shout and the trumpet will sound, the last trumpet. The dead will be raised incorruptible and the kingdom will come in all its eternal glory.
Beloved, do not be caught out, or caught hardened by the deceitfulness of sin. There is no time to procrastinate. The Lord still waits, but the hour is almost midnight, when the cry will go up…
“Behold, the Lord comes with ten thousands of his holy ones…”
