The Day of the Lord Will Come

2 Peter 3:1-10

PROP: Since Jesus is going to return to judge the living and the dead, we must stand firm in our faith as we hold fast to promise of Jesus’ return.

  1. We must remember Jesus’ future return is a reality because God’s Word says so.
  2. We must beware that Jesus’ future return will be scoffed at.

“It seems rational to them that all of that will continue, and they think it irrational that anything catastrophic like Christ’s coming and a chaotic end of the world will disturb it. It just makes sense to God’s enemies that things will keep hopping along as they have for centuries, and it makes no sense that anybody’s god suddenly will appear in the sky and turn everything upside down.” —Jim Shaddix

  1. We must know that Jesus’ future return will happen in God’s perfect timing.

“Because God is omniscient and omnipresent, he views all time as equally near.”—Jim Shaddix
