THE DAY OF THE LORD

From: If Not for God "devotional"

Bible Text: "But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day." (2 Peter 3:8)

Peter already wrote about the importance of being reminded (2 Peter 1:12-13). But here he wanted to emphasise what should be known in light of the coming of Jesus and the prophecies surrounding His coming.

What seems like forever for us is but a short time for God, just as an hour may seem to be an eternity for a child but
a moment for an adult. The truth is that God will keep His promise, and without delay according to His timing. Any perceived delay from our perspective is due to the long-suffering of God, who allows man as much time as possible to repent.

Just because someone quotes the Bible doesn't mean that they teach Biblical truth. It's possible that they twist the Scriptures. That is why we should be like the Bereans, who "searched the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were so" (Acts 17:11). Since you know this beforehand: We, who know of the Day of the Lord and await it with patient expectation, must persevere lest we fall from your own steadfastness. We must take care to keep abiding in Jesus.

I pray for someone reading this message that at the coming of our Lord, your name will be found written in the book of life in Jesus name.
