I Corinthians 15:52 “In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will all be changed.”
What crazy weather! Last week (in Texas) we had the coldest weather in recorded history. It’s hard to prepare for something most in the state have never experienced. But, we had almost a week to prepare. We were warned this was going to be a big one. Many didn’t pay attention. Of course, some had little options with no resources and no extra money. It was tragic for some. In Noah’s day they had 200 years. Still, they were unprepared for tragedy. They were warned, but paid no heed.
Texas has its own power grid. A lot of expectation was put on that fact. It failed–for reasons that will be investigated. We should never have run out of power in a state that leads the world in oil and gas production. Even so, people need to prepare as best they can for any emergency, whether it’s weather, fire, or something totally unexpected.
One week we were in a deep freeze, the next week we were in a thaw. High sixties and seventies. Frozen pipes thawed and spewed forth. Mud now covered the ground where the snow and ice melted. But, within a week most have heat and running water and are celebrating.
It’s hard to imagine the difference one week will make when this world moves from the everyday trials we all face to the glory the “Bride of Christ” will experience in the “twinkling of an eye”. For some it will be from snow and ice, for others it will be from the hot dirty city streets to the beautiful glorious “Day of the Lord”.
The question is have you paid attention. The warnings have been there for many, many years. Are you prepared?
