Watch therefore

National Cathedral

But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh.   Matthew 24:36-44





If you knew Christ was returning in the next year, what would you be doing, today?  I hate it when I step on my own toes.

    Great question.

    You know, I wouldn’t be at all upset if He did come next year but I would be sad if He came before I had the assurance that my dad knew Him, and others as well.

    I know exactly what you mean, Elaine.

    Well, I don’t think I would be doing!! My kids and I talk about this from time to time. They are young and feel like there whole life is ahead of them and they would miss something some how. That seems silly in a way but I guess i understand it. I just told them to think about how much better it would be, how wonderful!! They really couldn’t argue with that.
