Gone We Are – Before the Thief Undertakes (The Day of the Lord Is Denied to You)

The day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up- II Peter 3:10. The events of Jesus’ returning to earth are revealed in many Scriptures such as in Daniel, the Gospels, and Revelation. But this return should not be confused with our gathering and rising upwards, which is our expected hope. You see, Jesus’ literal return to the earth cometh as a thief in the night- I Thessalonians 5:2, totally unexpectedly. BUT, thankfully, we have been assured with the comfort of hope that we will be with Jesus (in heaven before II Peter 3:10 happens), and before he as the King of kings and Lord of lords returns to the earth, and oh, so thankfully that day will not overtake you as a thief- I Thessalonians 5:4. Thus, the day of the Lord cannot – will not – and is impossible to overtake you as a thief!” ~LMJ~
