36 “But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only. 37 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 40 Then two men will be in the field: one will be taken and the other left. 41 Two women will be grinding at the mill: one will be taken and the other left. 42 Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Lord is coming. 43 But know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Therefore you also be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.

Dr. M.R. DE Haan, founder of RBC Ministries, kept a two- word motto in his office: “Perhaps Today!” When Jesus’ disciples asked Him about the date of His return. He told them that only God the Father knows! What words can more strongly describe the suddenness of our Savior’s coming! Men will be at their respective businesses, and suddenly the Lord of glory will appear. Women will be in their house, but in that moment every other work will be laid aside, and every heart will turn inward and say, it is the Lord! Am I prepared to meet him? Can I stand before him?
Matthew Henry said, “Our Lord’s coming will be happy to those that shall be found ready, but very dreadful to those that are not. Those who choose the world for their portion in this life will have hell for their portion in the other life.”
Matthew 24:37-39 But as the days of Noah were, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be. 38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noah entered the ark, 39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
Think about the judgment in the day of Noah or in the day of Lot. Today we would call it catastrophic! No one left but Noah’s family! Sodom burned down!
Jesus said in Luke 17: 33-34 Remember Lot’s wife. 34Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it. (She wouldn’t wait for God’s best.) She looked back!
Listen Luke 17: 33-34 TM Remember what happened to Lot’s wife! If you grasp and cling to life on your terms, you’ll lose it, but if you let that life go, you’ll get life on God’s terms.
As God’s people we can’t become slothful and careless! The Lord’s coming after the consistent and obedient!
We have to be like the lady that came home after church and found her house being burglarized. She yield at the thief stop Acts 2:38! (Repent and be baptized, in the name of Jesus Christ, so that your sins may be forgiven) The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and explained what she had done. As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he asked the burglar: ’why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yell a scripture to you.’’Scripture?’ replied the burglar. ’She said she had
