The Apostle Paul gives us an interesting key to the Last Days scenario. He tells us that the Rapture of the Church will happen at a time when the world is preoccupied with the matters at hand. But we Christians are not to be sitting around idly plucking our harps in practice for that great day. The believer is not to be so fixated with heaven that we neglect the fact that we are to be busy about our Father’s business until Christ comes.
How can we sit still at this hour? Are you sensing that current world events indicate that Jesus’ coming is near? Can you look around and see that the season is changing, and God is about to interrupt our plans?
The soon appearing of Jesus Christ to earth should be a catalyst that energizes us to grow deeper in our knowledge of God. His return should cause us to be absolutely committed to evangelizing the world as much as possible. What an encouragement this passage is! We will not be in the dark concerning His appearance. We will not be surprised when the trumpet blast sounds. Those who look for Him shall see Him, and we shall be changed in a moment, in a twinkling of the eye! Are you ready?

1 Thessalonians 5:1-5 KJV – “But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.”
