Now, at the apex of time, the first two humans, Adam and Eve did not BELIEVE the word of God; and as a consequence human beings were condemned to death (Genesis 2:16–17, 3:4).
However, God has give all human beings the opportunity to once again BELIEVE the word of God, and has given HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, JESUS CHRIST that the world through might be SAVED (John 3:16-18).
“For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. [FOR AS IN ADAM ALL DIE, EVEN SO IN CHRIST SHALL ALL BE MADE ALIVE]. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ’s [AT HIS COMING]” (1 Corinthians 15:21-23).
JESUS WARNS THAT HIS COMING will be just as in the days of Noah before the great flood, and in the days of Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah. He expressed how “they did eat, they drank, they married wives, they were given in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, and the flood came, and [DESTROYED THEM ALL].
Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and [DESTROYED THEM ALL]” (Luke 17:27–29).
Today, untold numbers of people in this world are ignoring the signs of the time, and are too busy refusing to BELIEVE the word of God that TIME IS COMING TO AN END (Acts 17:30-31) (Revelation 11:19, 20:11-15).
“But the day of the Lord will come as a [THIEF IN THE NIGHT]; in which the [HEAVENS SHALL PASS AWAY WITH A GREAT NOISE, AND THE ELEMENTS SHALL MELT WITH FERVENT HEAT], the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up” (2 Peter 3:10).
“But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light” (1 Thessalonians 5:4–5).
“Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober. For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night. But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation. For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ” (1 Thessalonians 5:6-9).
“Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is” (Mark 13:33).
“Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to [ESCAPE] all these things that shall come to pass, and to [STAND] before the Son of man” (Luke 21:34–36).
