More signs of Christ’s return exist today than at any time in history. In Matthew 16:3 Jesus rebuked a crowd of people for failing to understand the “signs of the times” that ushered in His first coming. Sadly, many people today are following suit and failing to “understand the times” in which they live.
When Noah and Lot warned the people of God’s coming judgment and desolation, they refused to listen. Instead they were labeled “extremists” and ignored. When God’s judgment did arrive the people were not prepared. Thus it will be when Christ returns again….
“As the days of Noah, so it will be also in the days of the Son of Man: They ate, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, and the flood came and destroyed them all. Likewise as it was also in the days of Lot: They ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; but on the day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all. Even so will it be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.” (Luke 17:26-30)
