Like A Thief

Jesus said it in the Gospels. Paul said it in his letters. John wrote about it in Revelation. Peter wrote about it in his letter, too. The New Testament says that the return of the Lord will come like a thief. This is what Peter said:

But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare. – 2 Peter 3:10 (NIV)

A thief does not announce his coming before he comes to rob your house. He shows up when you’re not expecting him. It takes you by surprise and then it is too late. When Jesus comes, it will not necessarily be when we’re expecting Him. For centuries, people have been predicting the return of Christ and every single time they have been wrong. The fact is that only God knows when Christ will return. So let us always be ready for He will come when we least expect it.
