The Day Of The Lord

"Now brothers, about times and dates we do not
need to write to you, for you know very well that
the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.
While people are saying, 'Peace and safety,'
destruction will come on them suddenly, as labor
pains on a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.

But you, brothers, are not in darkness that this day
should surprise you like a thief.
You are all sons of the light and sons of the day.
We do not belong to the night or to the darkness.
So then, let us not be like others, who are asleep,
but let us be alert and self-controlled."
1Thessalonians 5: 1-6

The Lord will come like a thief in the night while majority of the people least expect of it. People who are living in sin and worldly pleasures have already developed a hardened heart. Since they refused to listen to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit warning them of an impending doom if they continue to disregard His voice in their conscience and still continue to wallow in sinful living, their hearts became hardened and their conscience became immune to the voice of God. Most of these people turn to hollow philosophies and other deceptive teachings to justify their evil ways. When the Lord comes, their evil ways will be exposed and they will receive their due punishment. Not so with the children of light who keeps their spiritual fire burning in their hearts. They live in total obedience to the will of the Lord and live righteous lives. They are ever expectant of the eventual coming of the Lord and are praying hard and trusting God to overcome their trials in life.

Hi Shy,
Natutuwa ako sa pagsabi mo nang makasalanan na para bang exclusive sa yo yung phrase. Sabi sa Bible, "for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Kaya lahat tayo ay hindi pumasa sa pamantayan ng Diyos sa Kanyang kaluwalhatian at katuwiran. Tanging ang pagtanggap lang kay Kristo bilang Panginoon at tagapagligtas ang magbabalik sa atin sa katayuang banal at matuwid sa harapan ng Diyos. Hindi tayo dapat kabahan sa pagdating ng Day of the Lord kung tayo ay laging handa sa Kanyang pagdating. I pray that the Lord will touch you and lead you towards the path of His kingdom. Salamat sa bisita. God bless you all always.

Hi kuya Mel! Andito na naman ako, very early here, not even 6 am yet to read about God..

There will be chaos when it's time for Jesus return. I am scared because I read all kinds of not so good things that would happen. We don't know when the TIME is, but with everything that's going on with the world now, it seems like His return is near.

I do believe in HIM and that's all I am holding on to, hoping that my faith would save me from the dooms day...

Have a good day kuya Mel.. God bless you..

Hi Kathy,
You don't have to be afraid if you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and savior and have surrendered your life to Him because He promised us eternal life with Him. He gave His own life so that we can enjoy an eternal blissful life with Him. All the children of God are eagerly anticipating His eventual return. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you always.
