Know this first of all, that in the last days mockers will come with their mocking, following after their own lusts, and saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For ever since the fathers fell asleep, all continues just as it was from the beginning of creation”. For when they maintain this, it escapes their notice that by the word of God the heavens existed long ago and the earth was formed out of water and by water, through which the world at that time was destroyed, being flooded with water. But by His word the present heavens and earth are being reserved for fire, kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.
This whole world is temporary; the “day of judgment” is coming!
It may not seem like that is true. So much time has passed since God made these promises. But remember that God set this world in motion and He is the One who can end it. And remember that He has already destroyed this earth once by flooding, so it should not astound us that He will destroy it by fire some day.
The Eternal Judge is reminding you today that His day of judgment is on its way, when He will judge those without Christ. Shouldn’t we be helping those people find Christ?
Pray that God will give you His passion for rescuing them.
