If you were born in the early 1900s, I believe your answer to the question “Could the Titanic sink?” would have been a big NO! Man believed the Titanic would never sink. In fact, they believed that even God cannot sink that ship. They couldn’t believe what they saw, and heard on the 14th day of April, 1912. The great Titanic did sink, and majority of the people on board perished. May their souls rest in peace.
On 09/11/2001, another tragedy happened that shocked the world. The US was attacked, and thousands of souls perished. People wouldn’t have believed if they had been told those buildings would be destroyed within 24 hours. Even now, people can’t believe that disaster happened. It beats what they could comprehend. The World Trade Centre, and the Pentagon came down. Remember what Jesus said that “Do you see all these buildings? I tell you the truth, they will be completely demolished. Not one stone will be left on top of another!” (Matthew 24:2 NLT)
In the days of Noah, people didn’t believe until the water came down. They forgot that the World has a Creator, and He represent Justice.
I don’t know why human beings prefer to wait when they have enough time to flee from danger. I can’t understand why we shun the truth. Jesus said Heaven and Earth shall pass away.
In 2 Peter 3:10, the Apostle said “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything in it will be laid bare.”
Jude 1:7 “In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.”
2 Peter 3:7 “By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.”
“When the Son of Man returns, it will be like it was in Noah’s day. In those days before the flood, the people were enjoying banquets and parties and weddings right up to the time Noah entered his boat. People didn’t realize what was going to happen until the flood came and swept them all away. That is the way it will be when the Son of Man comes. (Matthew 24:37-39 NLT).
Be reminded today that the earth is reserved for fire. Accept the truth; Heaven and Earth shall pass away. Stand for Jesus, Live for Jesus.
