From as long as I can remember, I’ve heard of the Day of Jesus Christ. So many different sayings about what that day will be like. One particularly saying that has resonated and haunted my spirit for as long as I can remember is that my savior comes as a thief in the night. My friends, whether we like it or not, whether we’re ready or not the day of the Jesus Christ nears, the question is will He be a thief in your night?
As He comes, one maybe seating in his living room watching TV, another maybe behind the wheel or deep asleep in the middle of the night. The day, the time, the hour, the season, remains a mystery to most. Some has compared this event to that of a reckoning for the unsaved, associated with great fear, anxiety and major destruction, leaving a huge void int the world.
For at the sound of the trumpets, the dead in Christ shall be awakened with brand new glorious bodies followed by those who are still awake, those who has not fallen asleep whom will then be transformed to meet Christ in the air, saving them from great evil and great danger. They shall be with Him forever more.
This day has been compared to the days of Noah. When folks were drinking, eating, partying, giving into marriage and submitting to lustful desires of the flesh, mating with fallen angels completely ignoring the cry of the faithful man of God Noah, as they believed he was making a mockery of Himself, building a huge water vessel far away from any meaningful body of water, despite no prior rain drop unto the earth. The people of Noah’s days remained in their disbelief, refusing access into the vessel, refusing salvation while being overtaken by the waters.
I believe in the word of God; He cannot lie, and it is clearly stated in the first letters to the Thessalonians 5:2 “For you yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so comes as a thief in the night”. You may than ask, would my savior, the one who pledges no more condemnation, overtake me as a thief in the wee hours of the night? Beloved, God is not the author of confusion, for within this same passage He makes it very clear what this day will be like for the saved, 1 Thessalonians 5:4,5 “But you, brethren, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief. You are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness”.
