All to his glory< part 2, contnued here about the judgement day..The Bible tells us that Lot was a righteous man (that is, God had saved him and made him righteous through Christ—see 2 Peter 2:7-8). God could not destroy the righteous with the wicked. So the Lord had to act. God warned Lot concerning the coming judgment: Genesis 19:12-13 And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters…bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place…the LORD hath sent us to destroy it. Lot and a few members of his family escaped the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah only because the Lord Himself gave him advance warning, information that Lot attempted to share with his sons-in-law but they did not take him seriously (Genesis 19:14). We also need to consider that Jesus says that His coming will be as it was in the days of Lot: Luke 17:28-30 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. Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed. The truth is that in the days of Lot, God warned His people in advance of the awful judgment upon Sodom. Also, others being warned did not take action on the advance information that they had been given. The historical fact that God forewarned Abraham and Lot once again demonstrates that the Lord will likewise reveal the timing of the end before Judgment Day comes, and yet there is still more Scripture for us to consider. A THIEF IN THE NIGHT Many professing Christians wrongly think that Jesus will come “as a thief” to bless them and then give them their reward of eternal life. But where do people get the idea that a thief comes to bring blessings? The Bible tells us exactly what it is that a thief comes to do: John 10:10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy… Jesus does not come unexpectedly like a thief for His elect people (typified by Noah, Abraham, Lot, etc.), but He comes as a thief for all of the unsaved of the world: 1 Thessalonians 5:2-3 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. Since the Lord is describing “sudden destruction” coming upon them and declaring that “they shall not escape,” it is very clear that the “ungodly” are in view. It is for them that Christ comes “as a thief” to kill and destroy. But notice the next verse: 1 Thessalonians 5:4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Obviously, we see that God’s people will not be taken by surprise. How could they be since the Lord does nothing without first warning His people? God warned Noah. God warned Abraham. God warned Lot. How could anyone think that God would warn His people in these lesser types of Judgment Day and not follow His own pattern and warn the world of about 7 billion souls living at the time of the actual Day of Judgment? Additionally, we find that Jesus commanded all to “watch” for they knew not what hour He might come. Christ comes as a thief only to those who are not watching: Revelation 3:3 …If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. That is, Christ commanded the true believers to keep looking (watching) in the Bible. His people were to keep studying the Word of God. This is because at the proper time He would open up our eyes to understand the words that were sealed. Since any keeping watch would understand these things, Christ would not come “as a thief in the night” for them. Jesus comes “as a thief” only for those who insist that we cannot know the time of Christ’s coming. By insisting that it is not possible to know the time, the churches are indicating that they are in darkness and have no intention of watching. It is deadly serious for anyone to stubbornly insist that we cannot know the timing of the end. This is because when Jesus does come upon them, it will be like “a thief” and they will be suddenly destroyed and not escape the awful judgment of God. This is all very sorrowful; however, the Lord gives each one of us strong encouragement through the Biblical example of the Ninevites. The people of Nineveh also heard God’s warning of an approaching judgment. THE CASE OF THE NINEVITES God sent the prophet Jonah to Nineveh in order to bring an incredible message containing one single sentence: Jonah 3:4 Jonah…cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown. It was only a few words! That was the entire message that Jonah was commanded by God to bring to the inhabitants of Nineveh. A message that basically contained two elements: time (40 days) and judgment (overthrown). Of course, this true historical account of the Lord sending Jonah to warn the Ninevites underscores, once again, God’s pattern in the Bible of forewarning people prior to bringing His wrath upon them. It is absolutely amazing what we find in the very next verse: Jonah 3:5 So the people of Nineveh believed God… Look at this from man’s perspective. The Ninevites were Assyrians. Jonah was not an Assyrian. He did not naturally speak their language. Not only was he from another nation, it was an enemy nation. Suddenly this strange man appeared proclaiming, “Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.” Can you think of any other responses that the Ninevites might have had instead, such as mockery, or laughter, or total disbelief? In our modern world, we would think, “Only a gullible fool would believe such a message!” Yes, we can easily think of many reasons today why a person would not believe something so ridiculous, but the Ninevites believed. What could have possibly convinced the Ninevites that this horrible news was true and was really from God? Certainly, it was not the volume of evidence. Jonah did not come with an encyclopedia of studies of teachings from the Bible and lay them at the doorstep of the city of Nineveh. No! He only spoke a single sentence—the flimsiest of evidence—and yet they believed: Matthew 12:41 The men of Nineveh shall rise in judgment with this generation, and shall condemn it: because they repented at the preaching of Jonas… You have now heard about Saturday, May 21, 2011 being Judgment Day. Perhaps you have heard much Biblical evidence; and yet, still, you do not believe God. Do you require more and more proof? The Ninevites did not have the luxury of such an abundance of information that we have today. They only had one meager verse of Scripture to go on. Today we are able to give people quite a lot of information coming right out of the Bible.

However, mounds of information will never convince anyone. Jesus pointed this out when He said: John 8:47 He that is of God heareth God's words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God. Please take note of the deadly seriousness in which the Ninevites believed God and urgently acted upon it: Jonah 3:6-8 For word came unto the king of Nineveh, and he arose from his throne, and he laid his robe from him, and covered him with sackcloth, and sat in ashes…saying…let man and beast be covered with sackcloth, and cry mightily unto God: yea, let them turn every one from his evil way… DISCERNING TIME AND JUDGMENT As we have examined Biblical history, we have seen how the Lord has repeatedly informed His people of approaching times of judgment before the judgment actually occurred. This is so consistent throughout Biblical history that this certainly can be said to be a Biblical principle, as Amos 3:7 says, “The Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants.” In the Bible, the Lord divides mankind into two groups. He refers to those He saves as “wise” and to those He does not save as “fools.” He also describes them as the “righteous” or the “wicked.” The distinction between the two has nothing to do with intelligence or human wisdom or human merit of any kind. Simply put, one is wise (and declared righteous) if God has saved them and given them the Spirit of Christ. Those who are not saved are as fools or wicked because they do not possess Christ’s Spirit (Wisdom). If we keep the Bible’s definition of wisdom in mind, it will greatly help us in understanding the following verses: Daniel 12:9-10 …Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end...none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand. Most definitely, it was the Lord’s intention to seal up His Word (the Bible) until the time of the end. But then notice, God points out how “none of the wicked” will be able to understand. Understand what? Well, He is referring to understanding the Word of God that will be unsealed at the time of the end. None of the unsaved of the world will understand these things, just like the people of the world of Noah’s day did not regard the warning of the flood and just like Lot’s sons-in-law dismissed the warning given to them to flee the city. Likewise today, none of the unsaved understand; however, “the wise” will understand. The “wise” understand only because of God’s great mercy. The Lord expresses this truth once again in these wonderful verses: Ecclesiastes 8:5 …and a wise man's heart discerneth both time and judgment. Proverbs 28:5 Evil men understand not judgment: but they that seek the LORD understand all things. Finally, whether or not we know that May 21 in 2011 is Judgment Day rests on whether or not God has opened up our eyes to understand these things. If He has, we will know that May 21, 2011 is the Day of the Lord’s Wrath. If He has not opened our eyes, then we will not know. The Bible tells us that the majority of people in the world are not chosen to salvation. This is why Christ comes unexpectedly for billions of people. They do not understand spiritual things. Since they do not have God’s Spirit, they are not going to take warning and they are not going to understand. Sadly, they will surely perish: Ezekiel 33:4-5 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head…But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul. God’s people know (like the Ninevites) that these dates are true and trustworthy only because this information comes right out of the Bible. Many people are going to trust their churches or their pastors who will assuredly say that they do not have to worry about a date. But none of these things are trustworthy. The truth is that the only trustworthy thing in the world is the Bible. This is why as we get ever closer to this date of May 21 in 2011, the big question for each person is, “Do you trust the Bible or do you trust something else?” Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. Psalm 119:42 …for I trust in thy word. For more information visit: www.ebiblefellowship.com Listen live via the “Internet Broadcasts” area of our website or follow the Free Paltalk instructions.
