First, understand this: during the Last Days, scoffers will come, following their own desires and asking, “Where is this promised ‘coming’ of his? For our fathers have died, and everything goes on just as it has since the beginning of creation.” But, wanting so much to be right about this, they overlook the fact that it was by God’s Word that long ago there were heavens, and there was land which arose out of water and existed between the waters, and that by means of these things the world of that time was flooded with water and destroyed. It is by that same Word that the present heavens and earth, having been preserved, are being kept for fire until the Day of Judgment, when ungodly people will be destroyed. 2 Peter 3:3-7 CJB.
So why put this on 1 December? There are so many scoffers in this world today. The Christmas celebration has become a market for things of the world that bring a false sense of happiness and condition our children to desire things over desiring the true reason for the season. We are in the Jewish year 5778 which has been called the year of the Messiah. This means they are in total preparation for His coming. How do we recognize the times? God Himself said look to the stars for signs and know that the Words in Scripture are not just a good read but instructions and preparatory warnings for getting right with God before the time of judgement (the destruction of the old and creation of the Kingdom).
This is the world we currently live in. Where a criminal who has been deported from a country he has entered illegally numerous times gets away with murder because his defense said it was an accident. What is this person doing back in the country in the fist place? So the guilty are set free and the innocent suffer? Is good evil and evil good? The family lost a daughter who had a lot of promise. A good family is lost because man judged the guilty as innocent. God help us.
Our time is short. The evils of this world are running rampant. Ways opposite of God’s teachings have become the law of the land because man has perverted God’s moral statutes in the name of progress and unity. This is written of throughout the prophets, Apostles, and Teachers of the Way. WAKE UP.
How we prepare ourselves is up to us. Be ready for He will come like a thief in the night. The earth shall tremble in His Name and the Word, Breath, Truth, of the Lord God Almighty will come to rule over us. Be ready, give no heed to the scoffers but stay focused in the Word not the world. Be prepared always for the holy reckoning where we will be transformed in order to survive the coming holocaust. Live for God, Love like God, but do not laugh at those who laugh at us. God does care for all creation and I am sure it saddens Him knowing these scoffers will die permanently and never truly see the life and light. Be ready brothers and sisters the time is coming soon.
