In A Twinkling Of An Eye

We hear the declarations of "fringe" Christianity heralding the "Doomsday" date as May 21, 2011.  In the light of scripture this claim is absurd.  Matthew 24:36 is clear about the fact that no man knows the day or hour of Christ's return.  Jesus Himself makes this crystal clear as he reiterates in Matthew 24:44, "Therefore you also be ready for the Son of man is coming at an hour you do not expect."  God is faithful to His Word, he has given us the scripture in order to know Him and live a healthy life in expectation of Christ's return.  Our every motive must be rooted in Him and in the knowledge that the eternity of humankind hangs in the balance.  The Western world is being led astray by the lurid deception of materialism and sensuality; while, much of the world languishes in poverty and starvation.  There is an enemy of our souls, and he will stop at nothing to destroy every human being possible.  The Church must wake up out of its denominational sleep and unite in Christ as a unified body.  The scripture is sure, the scripture is clear and rifts in the body regarding interpretation must be overcome, so that we can rise up as a unified force.  This prevailing church that Jesus speaks of in Matthew 16:18 is built on the fact that Peter declared, "Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God."  Jesus is who He says He is, and He is returning at the time appointed by the Father.  Christianity has a responsibility in His return, Matthew 24:14 instructs us, "And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in all the world as a witness to all the nations, and then the end will come."  We must be about the business of evangelization.  I Corinthians 15:52 states, "In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet.  For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."
