I have called upon thee, for thou wilt hear me, O God: incline thine ear unto me, and hear my speech.

One Day is as a Thousand Years

Thanks and praise to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
There are people that think they know a general time when our Lord and Saviour will return. But I tell you that none know when Jesus is coming. It could be today or it could be a thousand years from today. We need to be ready for His return. With each new day we need to give thanks and praise to God. For He is worthy of our praise. The one and only true God. The God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. We must show love towards one another as we have been commanded to do. Love thy neighbor. One day of the Lords is as a thousand years to us. When we think it has been a long time since He was here on this earth we are thinking as this world. But we are not of this world and the world hates us but it hated Christ first. If we were to try to think in Gods time it has only been a couple of days since He was here. This is a good example of how we know not of Heavenly things. There is one thing that is known and that is God loves us. He has not forsaken us nor will He ever leave our side. He is with us each and every second of every day. Praise His dear name. He wants what is best for each of us. That means that He will do whatever it takes to draw us closer to Him. That is part of the trails and the struggles we go through in life. All these things work for the good of His people. Let us give God praise. Thanks be to God.

2Peter 3:1-18
1: This second epistle, beloved, I now write unto you; in both which I stir up your pure minds by way of remembrance:
2: That ye may be mindful of the words which were spoken before by the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us the apostles of the Lord and Saviour:
3: Knowing this first, that there shall come in the last days scoffers, walking after their own lusts,
4: And saying, Where is the promise of his coming? for since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of the creation.
5: For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:
6: Whereby the world that then was, being overflowed with water, perished:
7: But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
8: But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
9: The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
10: But 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.
11: Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,
12: Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat?
13: Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.
14: Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
15: And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;
16: As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction.
17: Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
18: But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
