“But about That Day or Hour no one knows, not even the Angels in Heaven, nor The Son, but only The Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at The Coming Of The Son Of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at The Coming Of The Son Of Man. Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left. “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on What Day your Lord will come. But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, because The Son Of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.”Matthew 24:36-44
The Lord Jesus asks us to be ready at all times for His Coming because none other than The Father knows when this will take place. We must try to live every day by following Christ’s Commandments, without turning away from Them and in this way, no matter The Time of His Coming, we will be ready. The Lord Jesus asks us to keep watch, because we must remain awake, alert and not fall into the traps of the devil who tries to turn us away from God.
Let us be like Noah who was building the ark to prepare for the flood while others were living without worrying about God, eating, drinking and getting married; and when the flood came, they were surprised. Let us not be surprised by The Coming Of our Lord Jesus. Let’s get ready now. Let us remain vigilant, persevere in the practice of The Word Of God and in the service Of God and others and we will not be surprised when Christ comes.
