==== ====The Truth About The Last Days, Antichrist, The Rapture, More.http://www.teachingfaith.com/content.cfm?id=304==== ====Noah spent 120 years building his ark ... and people scoffed right until the moment the floodscame and washed them all away.Jesus said it would be just like "the days of Noah" when He returns. People will be concerned withtheir daily lives and totally unconcerned about the calamity about to befall them. The words of theprophets will, once again, fall on deaf ears.Nearly two thousand years ago, Peter wrote that this would be so. Those who scoff are merelyfulfilling prophecy and, in fact, become a prophetic sign themselves pointing to the soon coming ofthe Lord."First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and followingtheir own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this coming he promised? Ever since our fathersdied, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." (2 Peter 3:3,4).Mockers have forgotten that the Lord always fulfils His Word. He spoke "in the beginning" and theworlds came into being. He spoke again and floods destroyed the earth. His same Word ispreserving the world right now for the Final Judgment."But they deliberately forget that long ago by Gods word the heavens existed and the earth wasformed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged anddestroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept forthe day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men." (2 Peter 3:5-7).As far as God is concerned, time is but a fleeting moment. It is like a puff of smoke in the light ofEternity. "Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are amist that appears for a little while and then vanishes" (James 4:14).God has graciously given men this time in which to repent and turn to Him because of His greatlove for mankind. Our merciful God is not willing that anyone should perish without hope. It may bepossible to live without Christ in this world, but to die without Him is the greatest of all tragedies."But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and athousand years are like a day. The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understandslowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come torepentance." (2 Peter 3:8,9).Scoffing will not change Gods Prophetic Timetable.
