I want you to recall the words spoken in the past by the holy prophets and the command given by our Lord and Savior through your apostles. Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “WHERE IS THIS ‘COMING’ HE PROMISED? Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 2 Peter 3:2-4


imgresMy friends today let’s focus on 2 Peter 3:2-11 where we read “WHERE IS THIS ‘COMING’ HE PROMISED? We who live in the free world are not very good at handling waiting for any length of time.

Our communication with each other is faster then ever. We prepare food in seconds, in our micro waves, travel in planes, trains, and automobiles get’s us to any location, throughout the world in record time.

We can retrieve money instantly with a four number password at any ATM machine. Our Credit cards allow us to purchase anything, at anytime. Waiting is just not an option in our fast pace, got to have it now society we live in today.

We hate red lights, stop signs and long lines at the grocery store. So why should we WAIT on some unseen Deity that we have only heard about in some fantasy book called the bible that is as old as the world we live in.

And this big bang theory about a king coming through the clouds to retrieve everyone who is crazy end-timesenough to wait on Him is ludicrous. If He was coming He should have been here by now. Yes my friends inquiring scoffers want’s to know.

My friends the mockers say they have given God plenty of time to fulfill His so call promises of “going and preparing a place for the redeemed, and one day coming back and take them all back with him to this  far away place He lives, called heaven.” So why the wait? “WHERE IS THIS ‘COMING’ HE PROMISED?

So my friends let’s first look at who these scoffers are Paul says in verse 3 “in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires.” Also in In 2 Cor. 4:4 Paul says “The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers (and scoffers), so that they cannot see the light of the gospel that displays the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”

SOUNDS LIKE THE 21st CENTURY.

Then in verse 7 Paul let’s us know that one day “the earth will be destroyed again with fire, “being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly.” and that my friends includes the Scoffers who ask “WHERE IS THIS ‘COMING’ HE PROMISED?

But why the wait we all have asked before. Well my friends it is all about the LOVE OF A FATHER who gave “His only Begotten son” to die for each of us so that we will be ready AT HIS SECOND COMING.  Yes my friends it is about the LOVE OF A FATHER who tells us in verse 8 and 9 to Him “a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.”

And that He’S “not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not WANTING ANYONE TO PERISH, but everyone to come to REPENTANCE.” But my friends  OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN, SOON, WILL STAND UP, AND SAY “IT IS FINISHED.”

LET’S GO GET OUR CHILDREN WHO HAVE HELD ON TO THEIR RIGHTEOUSNESS BY FAITH, AND BELIEVED IN MYblessed-hope-jesus-return-4_n1 PROMISES, AND WHO HAVE ENDURED TO THE END  And friends, “this day of the Lord will come like a thief.” 2 Peter 3:10

“AND THEN,”  “the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. “AND THEN,” the dead in Christ will rise first. “AND THEN,” we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. “AND THEN,”we shall always be with the Lord.” 1 Thess 4:16-17 My friends please keep your faith centered on all of God’s promises in HIS WORD and ENDURE and soon and very soon “HIS COMING HE PROMISED WILL BE HERE.


So my friends today. Stay focused, remain faithful, love one another and endure till the end and never forget to STUDY&PRAY
